Home insulation question.

Recommended Posts

Hey there guys,

 

Looking for anyone that can replace the insulation in my basement and crawl space. Dont have the time but it needs to be done sooner than later. Before I go hunting the yellow pages I thought Id offer it here first. Located in New Egypt, Ocean County. Part of the basement is a duckwalk and crawlspace. Just out with the old in with the new kind of job.

^ there is DYI spray foam insulation kits you can buy. it can be a little messy but IMO spray foam insulation is the way to go. I will be replacing the insulation in my entire house with the spray foam insulation. only issue with spraying an entire house is if you do it really well you may need to add a ERV unit to bring in fresh air from outside because the house can be so air tight that the air gets stagnant.

Depends on the size of the application those diy kits can be more expensive than a sub.

 

Erv is dependent also. If the house is fairly active( coming in and going out. Window open on cool summer nights etc)

But spray foam by far is the way to go in my 20 plus yrs of experience.

Im doing my house room by room when I have the cash so the dyi kit is the way to go for me. I may have north pole spray the attic though. If I were doing the entire house all at once I would definitely higher a crew

I had my attic done by HomeDepot back when 0bamba was giving cash for everything.  Think I got a $1,500 tax credit for doing it.   I chatted quite a bit with the guy doing the work and he was telling me about all the scams going on where he would be sent out to do government jobs and they were supposed to put in lots of insulation and they put almost nothing.  He made it up for me, as rather than filling my attic with a foot of blown in fiberglass he put in two feet or more of the stuff.

Two types of spray foam, open and closed cell.  Best left to the professionals.  It must be mixed properly and sprayed on in 2 inch layers.  I would do some research as there are a lot of negatives with improperly applied foam, some related to health issues.

    • Sig P229 Platinum Elite from their Custom Shop. This one breaks my heart to sell. Never fired with the white grips on it. I bought it for a security detail in India and figured the white grips would hide well under light colored garments. The gig fell thru and it has remained a nightstand gun. I took one GFH training class with it. I used the 9mm conversion barrel most often. 2 mags come with it. The factory 12rd mags are in NC. If the ban gets overturned, I will reach out about selling them to you at a reduced price.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area. Or near 287/23/208 vicinity. Will ship to another FFL at your expense.  $1000.00 First I'll take it, gets it. Please understand the terms above before making the commitment.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/GtNps395krKYUiJ2A https://photos.app.goo.gl/zCS39Mhdi9ohCdxW8 https://photos.app.goo.gl/1FTyeyfjMyRFRHEAA   I also have a Sig P229 22lr upper for it that will be posted in the other section. If you are interested in the holsters for it, please IM me.               
    • For sale is a hard to find Glock G26 Gen 4 is FULL FDE. Maybe 2 boxes of ammo thru it. Like the P365, I got if for my girls and they couldn't safely rack the slide.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area. Or near 287/23/208 vicinity. Will ship to another FFL at your expense.  $500 First I'll take it, gets it.

    • For sale is a gently used G19C. I used it for a beginners handgun because of the extremely light recoil the compensator ports create. $450.00. 2  ten round mags are included. I had 15 rounders, but they were sold to a buddy in NC.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area.

    • For Sale - Sig P365 9mm with three 10 round mags. Very low round count. Got this and a G26 for my college aged girls and they lack the hand strength to safety operate them. $450.00. Must follow all NJ Laws and have permits ready to go. Located in Bloomingdale or Totowa area. Willing to travel locally to your FFL, or will ship to another FFL at your expense. I will post a couple of photos and can email more if interested.  First I'll take it, gets it.

    • I'll join the crowd welcoming and second the idea of getting your license issues resolved as soon as you can. You will need matching IDs to buy a gun and any time that you buy ammo.  I know that going to the DMV is a pain in the rear end but it might be easier than explaining why they don't match each time you purchase and carrying a third piece of documentation (the address update from DMV.)
