When these homeowners first contacted us, they had major concerns about their home's overall performance. It seemed as though their home was not performing well anymore and that they needed to find the best attic insulation contractors in their area. Good thing they found us here at Global Dwelling! We sent one of our highly trained home comfort specialists to their home to perform a home energy audit to find all of the home's problem areas. Upon the evaluation, it was discovered that the attic was poorly insulated and needed to be upgraded. 

 

Our team of highly trained insulation contractors was quick to fix this uncomfortable home! Our team first started by removing and disposing of all of the old fiberglass insulation that was in the space. Once the old insulation was removed, they then started to air-seal the space with ZypFoam so that any leaky or unwanted air would not be able to pass through the area so easily. After they were done air-sealing, our insulation contractors then upgraded the space with our warming, fluffy, blown-in cellulose! This was a great method for the homeowners to choose, because not only does our premier method insulate up to an R-value of 60, it is known to be both energy-efficient and cost-effective!

 

We are more than happy to be the best home insulation contractors to fix these homeowners uncomfortable home! 

Job Stories From Albany County, NY
Interesting Rim Joist Challenge

Customer Xendara came to us with some concerns of cold floors, some drafty spots throughout the home.  Upon inspection of her home, we were hit with a very ineresting challenge; all of the rim joists were sealed over by the previous owner with bricks?

 

Knowing that we needed to get these rim joists sealed up the proper way, we were able to use 2 Part Spray Foam that would expand in between the bricks to get the desired results, and not cause a bigger headache for Xendara.  She could immediately tell the difference in her toes while cooking in the ktichen.

 

A job well done!!

How Do We Provide Great Customer Service?

Here at Global Dwelling, we work closely with NYSERDA and the Empower program to provide critical updates to those customers homes that need a little helping hand.

This was such the case with customer Reyes in Guilderland.  We were all set to go to her home and help with moisture issues in her basement, cold floors on the first level and to just make the area seem a little less cluttered.

However, sometimes life struggles get in the way, and the work was delayed multiple times.  Mrs. Reyes was all but ready to give up and fold up shop on the whole project, but we couldn't let that happen.  Our job is to help the customer, no matter what it takes.

We hung in there with her and she hung in there with us.  We were able to complete the project last week with phenomenal results.  We can;t wait to hear from Mrs. Reyes the changes she feels in the home once the cooler weather returns.

Cold Feet?

Mr. Isallari is a EMPOWER customer who came to us about having cold floors during the winter time. He called the right place because we were able to help him! We installed Zypfoam along the boards to hold the wall in place to help with keeping the floors warm. We also insulated the attic floors with trusoft cellulose and along with this we were able to seal the the chimeny chase to help with the heat during the winter.

Insulating This Basement and Crawlspace in Delmar, NY!

When Mr. C experienced his first cold night this Fall, he noticed that his floors were extremely cold! He knew that his home had an insulation problem and was eager to find out what he needed to do in order to fix his problem. We sent one of our highly trained home comfort specialist to his home to provide a home comfort evaluation, also known as a home energy audit. Our evaluations are very thorough, our specialists go through the entire home to find all of the energy inefficiencies that may be affecting the homes overall performance. During this evaluation, our home comfort specialists found that Mr. C was suffering from freezing floors because both his basement and crawlspace were not properly insulated. The combination of both of the areas not having proper insulation allowed for leaky and unwanted cold air to make its way into the spaces and create an imbalance in temperature, affecting the floors above. 

 

We sent our team of insulation experts right away to the home to start their magic! Our team first started by removing any leftover fiberglass insulation that was in the crawlspace ceiling and disposing of it. Once the old insulation was removed, our team installed Foamax boards in the rim joists which were then air-sealed with ZypFoam. After, our experts then installed our Total Clean Space Encapsulation System in order to control the moisture problem in the area. The system is completed with our experts first laying down a drainage matt, which is then secured to a vapor barrier with vapor barrier tape, making this system a way for moisture mitigation control! Once we installed the Total Clean Space Encapsulation System, our experts then went into the basement area to properly insulate! Our team of insulation contractors first insulated the rim joists with Foamax boards which were then air-sealed. The basement walls were then insulated with our fabulous Basement-2-Beautiful insulation panels which will create a blanket-like barrier from allowing the outside to affect the temperature of the basement. So these floors will no longer become freezing for the homeowners!
