Kent & Terry’s Insulation and SeasonGuard Bay Window Project in Fridley, MN

Two of the largest contributors to a home’s energy efficiency are its attic insulation and windows.  When Kent and Terry visited our booth at a Twin Cites home show, one of their most pressing concerns was the rampant energy loss they suspected to be happening in the attic of his 1960’s era home. They also felt certain that the bay window in his living room was in need of replacement.  To troubleshoot both issues, one of our energy efficiency experts visited his home for a complimentary estimate and confirmed the fact that both areas of the home would benefit from professional attention.

How We Assisted With Home Improvements

SeasonGuard Bay Window

Kent and Terry’s preexisting bay window allowed an expanded view of their neighborhood and also invited copious amounts of natural light into their living room.  However, it had reached the end of its lifespan and was drafty and not as aesthetically pleasing as it had once been.  In order to address these concerns, we suggested the installation of a new SeasonGuard window featuring smaller angled windows that are triple pane.  Comprised of vinyl, a SeasonGuard bay window installation is low-maintenance and can easily open and close.  Colonial grids in the double hung flankers added both interest and curb appeal. Kent and Terry opted for a white interior and exterior which provided a contemporary look.

Attic Insulation and Air Sealing

The couple was particularly interested to learn about the diagnostic testing we offered to troubleshoot their attic issues in order to address their home energy efficiency concerns. They were impressed to hear that our energy audit and testing tools includes smoke sticks, blower doors, and infrared imaging.  In the not so recent past, another insulation company had attempted to reinsulate the home’s Springbrook neighborhood attic and had failed miserably.  Their approach had been to simply add to the home’s current attic insulation, which had created significant condensation problems.  When there’s an overabundance of condensation in an attic, it’s only a matter of time before mold growth commences.  Our home energy expert determined that the best way to attack the energy deficiencies in the home’s attic was to remove all the existing insulation and start over.  Once this had been done, our craftsmen inspected the attic intake chutes to ensure they were ventilating properly.  From there, they sprayed 5” of urethane foam to the entire attic ceiling to create a vapor barrier.

Concluding the Window and Insulation Home Improvement Projects

After the home improvements were completed, the couple’s project manager stopped out for a final inspection of the SeasonGuard window replacement, attic insulation and air sealing.  They were pleased to report that our work had exceeded their expectations.  They are excited at the prospect of a more comfortable, energy efficient home.

"They replaced the roof on our house. The roofers did a great job; they did a great job cleaning up from the roofing job.  They were even back the next day to make sure they didn’t miss anything.
