Kinzler Insulates House for Homeless Female Veterans

Kinzler provided the insulation for this new home which will provide temporary housing for up to five female veterans at a time.

Kinzler Construction Services is proud to help create housing for Minneapolis, MN area veterans in need by installing insulation in a new homeless shelter free of charge.

Each year, the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) receives more than 25,000 contacts, inquiries and requests from veterans across the state who are homeless or experiencing a crisis that could lead to homelessness. Earlier this spring, MACV teamed up with Kinzler’s building partner, Lennar and BATC Housing First Minnesota, to break ground on a home that will house female veterans – a population that is in serious need.

“We’re happy to be able to give back to the community where our team of local insulation installers live and work,” says Kinzler Construction Services General Manager Rick Cobbs. “We’re excited that this house will be able to provide temporary shelter for up to five women at a time.”

Kinzler Construction Services partnered with insulation supplier Johns Manville, donating material and time to install batt insulation, spray foam around the rim joists and blow-in insulation in the attic.

The five-bedroom home located in Maplewood, MN is scheduled to be completed in August.

 

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
