Dense Packing - Sidewalls
We install the cellulose at 4 pounds of pressure which does not allow the cellulose to settle over time.
Dense packing is most commonly done to the exterior walls of an existing home, and at key juncture points (click on the picture to the right).
The Dense Packing Process
First, we inspect the structure and framing of the home.
Then we remove a row of siding above and below windows around the perimeter of home. We drill 2 inch holes in each stud cavity, allowing us to insert the correct sized dense packing tube.
Then each cavity is filled at the proper pressure. The proper pressure ensures that the cellulose will not settle over time and reduce the effectiveness of your sidewall insulation.
Next, the tube is removed and plugs are installed to seal off the cavities.
The last step is re-installing the siding back exactly how it was.
Most projects are done in one day!
Featured Dense Packing Insulation Products
We install Weather Blanket Cellulose Insulation because it is a great insulation product and friendly to the environment.
Cellulose is made from waste paper that would otherwise end up in a landfill. It also takes less energy to make than other insulation materials such as fiberglass insulation.
It's recycled paper saturated with fire retardant , which cannot be started on fire even with a propane torch
