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.

Do These 3 Things to Save Big $$ This Winter

Temperatures are dropping, daylight is shorter & everyone is spending more time inside. It’s important to prepare your home for the coldest months of the year, to make it comfortable & more energy efficient. Here are some ideas which could save you big money!

  1. Replace furnace filters monthly

Check and replace your furnace filters on a monthly basis during the winter months. To check if a filter needs to be replaced, hold it up to the light. If light does not shine through, it is time for a new one.

  1. Switch ceiling fan blades

In the winter months, change your ceiling fan blades to move clockwise. It lifts the cool air to the ceiling and pushes the heated air down.

  1. Add insulation

To keep heat in and the cold out, add insulation to your attic. This is where you can usually find some of the largest opportunities to save energy in your home. Your local experts at Kinzler Construction Services can help identify inefficiencies in your home, such as air leaks & inadequate insulation.

Customer Testimonial. Homeowner

“The guys were excellent.  Very professional, courteous, clean and although I don’t have a lot of experience in finished insulation projects, it appears to be a text-book insulation job.”

Project Profile. Home Performance

The customer had been experiencing ice dams for over 30 years. Raking the roof every winter was just a part of their normal routine and they learned that taking a vacation during the winter was not possible after coming home to ice dam damage and water intrusion. Upon consideration of selling their home, they were curious to see if this long-standing problem could be resolved because they did not want to pass on the burden of ice dams to a new potential homeowner.

A home performance assessment was conducted to create a specific scope of work aimed towards preventing ice dams and improving overall home performance. It was determined that air sealing, adding insulation to the attic and ensuring proper attic ventilation was necessary. The work was performed and a final test was conducted to gather data for comparison. The overall air leakage of the home was reduced by 20%.  Not only are ice dams no longer an issue, but the overall energy efficiency and comfort of the home have greatly increased.  Now the homeowners feel that anyone would be lucky to live in their high performance home.
