Bpb Farmer replied to Bryan Pringle's discussion Dense packed cellulose in basement?
"1st, forget cellulose, it is trash, hold moisture packs down, molds eventually, and rodents think they have found the Hilton hotel for rats. Used closed cell foam. Insulates, stops moisture, sound proofs and so forth. "

Bpb Farmer replied to Larry Schaffert's discussion How to correctly insulate exterior wall in a 1900 house?
"I have an injection / spray foam foam company and we do this all the time. You removed the lath and plaster so injection is out. Spray 1 or 2 inches of closed cell foam to the siding. Trim off any that sticks threw the cracks and holes and paint…"

Bpb Farmer replied to Bud Poll's discussion Cellulose As An Air Seal
"Ed, That nasty insulation you are speaking of would be the squirrel,  mouse and rat feces / latrines which harbor deadly bacteria and viruses. Not counting the dead carcasses of all of the above.  The dust from cellulose, fiber glass and…"

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
"It's Me again. Sorry to swim against the flow but cellulose is a disaster. Dusty, causes allergies, asthma, molds, settles losing R-value, rodents love it, bridges when blown into existing walls, soaks moisture and on and on. Fiber glass is…"

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?
"Do your self and your wallet a favor and get injection foam. The traditional insulation's are not worth the dust, allergy's, rodents, bugs and loss of "R" value with time. Do your research and you will not buy anything else.…"

Bpb Farmer commented on Chris Laumer-Giddens's blog post 1825 Home Becomes an Energy Efficiency Role Model - Remodeling Magazine
"The reason I am not open to anything else is stated below, but I forgot to mention that foam WILL pay for itself with energy cost saving's. As the inevitable price increases occur the saving's will only increase. Compared to fiber glass or…"

"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…"
