This was a great project. This customer needed to convert living space BACK to a garage. After demolition of area, we noticed terrible insulation if any on the buffer wall (wall opposite conditioned space) as well as the ceiling. With 5" of closed cell foam on the ceiling and 2" of closed cell foam on the buffer wall, we were able to completely seal this garage from any air or moisture with incredible R-Values!! Not to mention adding structural integrity to her floors. Per the customer " I can't hear any of the creaks in the floor any longer and I don't need socks!!!"
After Triple H completed an energy assessment of this customer's house, it was determined that the floor in their bedroom was cold because there was no insulation below the floor in the garage. After spray foaming the ceiling of the garage, the customer will have warm floors and lower energy bills.
We call them "Frogs" (Finished rooms over gargages). This home was built in 1965. This was 2x8 framing. Inside the bay was a heating duct going from the front to rear of the home to registers on the outside walls. The original insulation was compressed which left a 4" void of air space around the ducts. Spider webs everywhere (which means conditioned air escaping!!)!! Here is a before and after showing that now this duct is fully sealed and insulated with none of the air that this homeowner paid to heat and cool escaping any longer!!
