Project Profile. Lake Vermillion

 

Kinzler installed open cell spray foam in the garage area bonus room portion of the 8,000+ square foot home in -30 degree weather. The customer originally wanted to used closed cell spray foam, but couldn’t because of the temperatures. Kinzler worked with a general contractor to design an efficient insulation system that could be installed in sub-zero temperatures without compromising the quality. It was decided that the best solution would be to do the bonus room in open cell spray foam, initially, and to come back the next fall to replace with the closed cell spray foam that they requested but couldn’t install because of the temperatures. Additionally, we put open and closed cell spray foam insulation in the attic with R60 blown-in fiberglass over the foam.

 

Project Profile. HIGH-R Metal Building Insulation

Marion, North Dakota

Winters in the upper Midwest can be unpredictable which can present a challenge when insulating steel buildings.  A-Line Builders of Fargo was selected as the general contractor and steel building erector for this project and selected us as the subcontractor to complete the insulation scope of this 45,000 ft. metal building.  With winter quickly approaching traditional insulation methods were not ideal so A-Line and Kinzler worked together to set a schedule to get the structure dried out so that we could insulate the buidling from the inside.  Insulating the building from the inside once the structure was dry saved substantial downtime that snow, rain, or ice could have caused.  High-R Metal Building Insulation was installed after filling any condensation prone areas with blown fiberglass.  Then, Kinzler spray foamed around windows, doors, eaves, and gable ends to properly air seal this space.  Since purlin depths ranged from 10″-12″ we were able to achieve R values of R-40 on the ceilings and R-30 on the walls.  A big thanks to A-Line Builders of Fargo for allowing us to help you on this project.  For more information on HIGH-R, visit www.high-r.com
