Kinzler Insulates Historic Boulder, CO Home

This historic home in Boulder is being converted into apartment units by Urban Green Development. Bringing the building up to code presented some unique challenges in achieving energy efficiency.

The experts at Kinzler Construction Services installed closed cell spray foam insulation to get to R-50 at the roof line. Batt insulation was used in much of the home and blown-in-blanket (BIBS) was installed in some areas because of its ability to form to small gaps and oddly sized obstructions. The finished project resulted in outstanding thermal performance and excellent sound control.

Kinzler Helps Achieve Superior Energy Efficiency in St. Paul, MN Passive House

Passive House in St Paul, MN
Passive House buildings consume up to 90% less energy than typical construction and provide a measurable, proven framework for reducing carbon and greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment.

The local experts at Kinzler Construction Services were hired as the insulation contractor for this cutting edge home. We started by installing Intello-Plus, which is an air barrier, smart vapor control, and dense-pack reinforcement all in one. A blower door test was performed before we installed blow-in cellulose insulation into the ceiling and walls.

“The Lexington Parkway Passive House is not only the first certified Passive House in the City of Saint Paul, Minnesota, but also a beacon for sustainability, resilience, easy ownership and aging-in-place.”

Rigid Board Insulation

Kinzler was hired to install Rigid Board Insulation & fireproofing on this commercial project in Castle Rock, CO.

Kinzler Construction Services was hired to install Rigid Board Insulation and Fireproofing on this commercial construction project in Castle Rock, CO.

THERMAX Ci rigid insulation has many advantages:

  • Provides continuous insulation on the interior or exterior
  • One of the highest R-values available (R-6.5 at 1″)
  • Features a distinct free-rise technology for better product consistency, durability and fire performance over generic polyisocyanurate insulations
  • Approved for fire exposure
  • Contains UV-stable technology and can remain uncovered up to six months
  • It reduces the potential for condensation within the wall assembly resulting in long lasting performance due to its low perm rating and high insulating value
  • Eliminates the extra step of installing a membrane or building wrap
  • Can be installed exposed to the interior without a thermal barrier

Sound Dampening with Rockwool Insulation

Controlling sound between units at the Auberage of Tyler apartment community in Tyler, TX is a top priority for Abby Development and builder Hand Construction.

The local experts at Kinzler Construction Services installed rockwool blown-in-blanket insulation between floors and in shared walls at this new, 234-unit, high-class complex. Because of its high density, rockwool is great at reducing noise and absorbing sound.

We followed our proven process for quality installation by inspecting the completed job and grading our installers on the quality of their work.

We Insulate You All Winter

Kinzler solves problems and gets the job done right – even in cold winter temps! 

Hage Homes’ is building a beautiful new Minneapolis home with a modern design and a flat roof. They hired Kinzler Construction Services to install closed cell spray foam, which acts as a water vapor and air barrier, to prevent any moisture issues that may arise due to the flat roof design.

Because of the cold temperatures, Kinzler provided heat at the job-site in order to get the substrate to an acceptable temperature for spray foam installation.

We followed our proven process for quality by inspecting the completed job and grading our installers on the quality of their work. In addition, we did a blower-door test to confirm that our spray foam and caulking made the home airtight and code compliant.
