Bpb Farmer replied to Bud Poll's discussion Cellulose As An Air Seal

Bpb Farmer replied to Isaiah Borel's discussion Blown Cellulose VS Blown Fiberglass in the Attic

Bpb Farmer replied to TJ Alexander's discussion So many homes have poorly installed fiberglass insulation. Have you been successful with a retrofit dense pack cellulose?

"A quality foam job seals every size and shape of hole with out question. Quality foam adheres to the structural framing members. The foam I spray has little to no odor issues. Have had customers with in 20 ft of actual spraying and they were not…"

"Sorry to say but you totally missed the boat by not using foam insulation. Wool creates allergy and asthma problems. Wool does not stop air permeation, Rodents and insects love the stuff for nesting. I do historic homes both here in Huntsville Al.…"
