Wall Insulation in Greater Puget Sound Area
Insulating the exterior walls of your home is an essential step you can take to increase your homeÍs energy efficiency. Unlike the attic and crawl space, which are usually accessible, the wall cavities of an existing home are inaccessible, making insulating them more of a challenge. That does not mean you canÍt insulate the walls in an existing home, however. On the contrary, at CSCP we employ some innovative ways to install insulation in your walls, wrapping your home with a shield of warmth.
Drill & Fill
Due to old building codes many homes built before 1960 don’t have any wall insulation.
One way we retrofit a house with wall insulation is by drilling a hole in the wall, usually from the outside and spraying in either densely packed borate cellulose insulation or cementitious foam insulation. Once we have finished spraying insulation into each section of wall cavity, we plug and patch each hole. (Please note that the homeowner is responsible for supplying matching paint to achieve a seamless finish.)
A more cosmetically seamless way we insulate outside walls is by removing one or two strips of siding around a house and injecting insulation through holes we cut in the exterior sheathing or backer boards into the wall cavity. Once the siding is replaced, no one will be able to tell you just had your walls insulated. (Please note, this option is not available for homes with T1-11 siding.)
Insulating your walls will prevent draftiness, save energy and add a level of comfort to your home. If our methods appeal to you, donÍt hesitate to contact us to set up a free consultation where we can assess the best approach for your home.
