Project Profile: Duplex Insulation in HiLo Denver, CO

Kinzler Construction Services recently insulated this duplex in HiLo Denver. The contractor encountered several challenges which our expert team helped solve quickly in order to keep the inspectors happy and the project on schedule.

Closed cell spray foam was used on the ceiling in 2’x8′ cavities that needed to achieve an R49. Kinzler sprayed foam insulation in a vaulted ceiling that ran the length of the house.
Because this is a duplex, the builder was particularly concerned about sound transfer. Our team suggested noise-reducing options and mineral wool batt insulation was selected to place in common walls. Blown-In-Blanket (BIBS) was used on others walls where sound transmission was not a worry.

Our team of local professionals in Denver will:

  • Listen to fully understand your project scope & schedule
  • Complete the work to manufacturers specifications
  • Double check 100% of work orders
  • Inspect job sites to grade our installers on the quality of their work

We have a proven process created to ensure your project passes inspection the first time, saving you time and keeping the entire project on budget.

Kinzler Helps Renovate 107-Year-Old Minneapolis Home for Net-Zero Performance

Kinzler Construction Services was recently hired as the insulation contractor to help renovate a chilly Minneapolis home to be net-zero in energy with no sacrifice in attractiveness, space, or comfort.

This renovation was one of the first in Minneapolis to use a relatively non-invasive method of insulating the foundation wall from the outside. Kinzler Construction Services removed a 4-inch-wide slice of dirt all the way down to the footings, then inserted a 1-inch foam sheet and 3 inches of sprayed closed-cell foam. The net insulating effect for the basement was R-30 while removing very little dirt.
