“Working with Kinzler was great! We needed a radon mitigation system installed as part of the sale of our house. They returned my call promptly on a Friday night, got us a written estimate within 24 hours, and was able to schedule the install of the radon mitigation system within two weeks. Solid communication and promptness are super important to me, especially in this situation because we were moving out of the country. Everyone we talked to at Kinzler Minneapolis was helpful. I would definitely recommend them.”

“We had an excellent experience from start to finish. We had a serious ice dam problem before and the Cocoon team’s attic insulation recommendations and work solved the problem completely.”

Project Profile. Metal Building Insulation

For a couple of years Go-Devil Boats, based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, had been facing issues with their existing insulation which was falling and causing a mess. High-R Metal Building Solutions came to the table with a cost-effective solution to solve their insulation issue and improve the aesthetics of their facility.

With over 30,000 square feet of area to install, High-R called upon Kinzler Construction Services of Ames, Iowa and Garland and Jones Insulating of Tyler, Texas to attack this project with a high level of experience and professionalism. While installing the new RetroPan system, the High-R crews worked safely around the employees of Go-Devil Boats on a daily basis, and kept up the production rates of both companies.

The project was completed in approximately 5 weeks, coming in on schedule and budget, without any major setbacks. With a satisfied customer and a great looking facility, this is just another success story for the High-R team.

Project Profile: Excavationless Foundation Insulation

Kinzler was hired to do excavationless foundation insulation at a home in Minneapolis. This home was built in 1907 and was recently purchased by a new homeowner that is in the process of turning it into a net-zero home, pursuing Green Star certification. The foundation insulation is one of the first items in this big project.

This is the third home where the excavationless foundation insulation procedure has been done. The procedure originally came out of a U.S. Department of Energy field study and involves using a Hydrovac truck to vacuum out a 4” trench of dirt down to the footings around the outside of a home. After that, 1.5” of rigid foam board is installed against the dirt and the remaining 2.5” of the cavity is filled with a special blend spray foam that was made specifically for this application.

The excavationless procedure works well on existing homes. The alternative approach is to use an excavator to dig out the foundation and insulate it using a different strategy. This alternative could take longer, be more expensive and will cause more damage to grass and landscaping.

In the next few months, when the home is ready, we will return and insulate the rest of the foundation above grade so there is a seamless transition between the exterior wall and the foundation insulation. Kinzler will also be insulating other areas of the home including the walls and ceilings. We are excited to be part of such an innovative project and is happy that the homeowner will now have a more comfortable, durable and energy-efficient home.
