DFI completed a basement insulation retrofit at the Hartfords house in Peru. After removing the R11 fiberglass in the rim joist area, we could see why the basement was cold.

 There was quite a few holes that you could see outside in the area, add that to the concrete block foundation and you have alot of air leakage. We then applied 2" R14 closed cell foam in the rim joist and too the concrete foundation to seal up all those holes and cracks allowing the cold air to filter in. The Hartfords wont have to worry about any pipes freezing down there this winter or any winter to come. Read more. www.energycircle.com/blog/2012/02/05/helping-hartfords-and-finding-path-...

  • Thank you for allowing me to test the project in Cumberland. For a building of around 7000 Square feet I expected the blower door number to approach 4000 CFM. Because of your excellent foam application and the quality of the builder the blower door reading was only 2400 CFM at 50 Pascals!

  • Thanks to Dixfield Foam Insulation we don't have frozen pipes anymore on those cold nights. They were fast, efficient and very friendly. I would recommend them to anybody!
