This homeowner complained of cold bedrooms. The floor was only 6 inches deep and there was only 3 inches of fiberglass insulation inside. There were also boards on top of the attic floor so that it could be used for storage, with large gaps between the insulation and the flooring. These large gaps cause unnecessary air flow from the outside into the house, causing uneven temperatures between floors in the home. In the summer, your uppermost floor can become uncomfortably hot if this is the case with your attic!
Our insulation experts installed a Superdeck, comprised 4 inches of SilverGlo rigid insulation with 5 inches of dense packed cellulose below. The insulation was then covered with a durable, cleanable plywood surface, making the area better suited for storage and super insulating the floor area to keep the bedrooms warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer - another happy customer in Kingston, NY!
This kneewall space was poorly insulated prior to our expert insulators arrival. Our team installed Silverglo and air sealed with zypfoam to properly insulate the area.
This basement space was leaking cold air up into the home prior to our expert insulation. Our installation team insulated the rim joists with silverglo and further more air sealed with zypfoam.

These homeowners wanted to upgrade their current unconditioned attic space into an area for more than just storage as it was being used before we arrived. These homeowners were more than excited when we told them that we had the best insulation solution to achieve this goal! They called the right team of insulation contractors to do just the right job!
In order to transform this space into their dream studio, our insulation experts first started by installing Foamax boards along the slopes of the attic. Next, they got to one of the most important parts of our insulation transformation process, which is air-sealing between these boards with ZypFoam and further sealed with vapor barrier tape. These homeowners still needed space for storage. So we created access to their knee walls, previously unconditioned, with Foamax boards and air sealed with ZypFoam! This allows the homeowners to add already existing unconditioned space that was outside of the thermal envelope of their home to be brought into the conditioned space of the home and into the thermal envelope!
Once the job was completed the homeowners were pleased to have a space they could use for their new studio and untapped space with the potential to add more space to utilize for storage. You can now say they are experiencing more than their home had to offer them while now enjoying the best of both worlds!
When Mr. W initially called us, he had concerns about his home's overall performance and knew he needed the right team of experts to provide him with the best possible solution. When we sent one of our highly trained home comfort specialists to provide a home comfort evaluation of the home, it was discovered during the evaluation that Mr. W's attic was poorly insulated with old fiberglass insulation. In order to restore peace of mind to the homeowners, our team of experts needed to upgrade the insulation in the attic space.
When our team of insulation experts arrived at the home, the first step in the upgrade process they took was to remove all of the old batt fiberglass insulation that was in the attic area. After the removal, the space was then ready for our experts to air-seal with ZypFoam. Our experts air-seal the area to ensure that all and any easily accessible air penetrations no longer let in any wanted or leaky air in and out of the space. Lastly, with the air-sealing completed, our experts then insulate the space with our premier method of insulation, blown-in cellulose! Our TruSoft cellulose is known to be both energy-efficient and cost-effective, this insulation method also insulated up to an R-value of 60!
Once we completed the attic insulation upgrade for Mr. W he said that he noticed an almost immediate difference in temperature within his home! He was more than happy that he chose the right team of insulation experts, and we were more than happy to restore his peace of mind. Thank you, Mr. W!
Mrs. A knew that the performance of her house needed to be improved by upgrading and insulating her basement but she wasn't sure what needed to be done. We scheduled Mrs. A for a home energy audit that would provide her with a very thorough evaluation of her home and give solutions to the problems she initially contacted us with. Upon the evaluation, our home comfort specialist discovered that her home was underperforming due to the lack of insulation in her basement area. Our home comfort specialist provided her with a solution to upgrade the space by insulating the rim joists and exterior walls.
The first step in insulating the rim joist for Mrs. A was to remove and dispose all of the old batt fiberglass insulation that was in the ceiling of the crawlspace. Our team then went in and air sealed the area with ZypFoam to ensure that all possible air penetrations would be closed. After the accessible points were sealed, our team of experts then insulated all of the exterior walls and the rim joists in the space with SilverGlo boards which were then sealed together with ZypFoam and then further secured together with vapor barrier tape.
After the completion Mrs. A noted that she felt an almost significant difference in the feeling of her home and noticed that the work completed was reflecting in the cost of her energy bills in the short months to follow. Mrs. A thanks us for the upgrade and we thank her for her business!
After doing some research on insulation services in his area, Mr. K found our team here at Global Dwelling. He saw on our website that we offer home comfort evaluations and gave us a call to find out more about what that means. After the phone call, Mr. K gained knowledge that a home comfort evaluation and a home energy audit are the same thing and booked an appointment with us. He wanted someone with experience to tell him how he could find ways in which he could improve the overall performance of his home.
We sent out one of our highly trained and experienced home comfort specialists to his home to provide a very thorough evaluation and to provide the best plan possible on how we can help upgrade his home. Our home comfort specialist informed Mr. K that he would need to enhance his attic space by upgrading the current insulation method that was installed in the space.
The first step in the process was for our team to remove and dispose of all of the old batt fiberglass insulation that was no longer keeping the space well insulated. Our team then went in and air-sealed the space to make sure that there was no longer any leaking or wanted air going in and out of accessible air points. After the air-sealing was completed, our team then went and properly insulated the space with TruSoft blown-in cellulose. This method was a great method for Mr. K, because not only does it insulate to an R-60 value, but it is also energy-efficient and can be a direct link to lowering energy bills for a home!
Mr. K was pleased with the work he had completed and happy he found us during his search for the best team of expert insulators in his area.

Mr. M knew the potential his attic could achieve, he just needed the right team in order to make his vision come true! Mr. M wanted to turn his attic into a conditioned and livable space also known as a SuperAttic. He had concerns about lowering his high costing energy bills. Our team of experienced insulators went to work right away to turn Mr. M's attic into a SuperAttic. Our experts wanted to tackle and fix the un-comfortability that Mr. M was feeling in his own home as soon as possible.
The first step in the 8-day process began with providing a very thorough evaluation of Mr. M's home by one of our highly trained home comfort specialists. During this evaluation it was discovered that Mr. M's current attic condition was very poorly insulated, leaving the attic to be the source of why his energy bills were high costing. In order to ensure that his home would be more energy-efficient, more comfortable, and cost-effective, the best solution for Mr. M was to remove the old insulation and upgrade to our more efficient insulation methods. Our experts then started the process of improvement for the attic, the first step they tackled was the removal of all of the old batt insulation that was causing energy inefficiencies for the home. Our team of experts then installed Foamax Boards with "blown-in" cellulose dense-packed behind to further insulated the space. They then air sealed the space with SprayFoam to further ensure that the area was impenetrable to any accessible points of access for air to leak out of.
Safe to say that Mr. M was delighted with the completion of the project and even more satisfied with the immediate difference in his energy bills and comfort in his home. Mr. M can now have peace of mind knowing that he will no longer suffer from high-cost energy bills and have a properly insulated SuperAttic!
