1. Need to repair and re-insulate a 10s/f area of finished wall in our basement.

Home is an end unit townhome, 22y/o. prefer roxul insulation batts. Total footage of the work estimated at 4-500 sf of framed wall area.
Timeliness is most important - project completion within the next week preferred.
I have a corner bedroom 10x10 whose outside two walls collect condensation and mildew in the winter. The house was built in early to mid sixties, and has what we believe to be plastered with gypsum lath underneath or concreteboard. We suspect the insulation is inadequate and want to reinsulate and drywall these two walls. If the price is reasonable, maybe even do the one wall that runs along the back of the adjacent bedroom (about 13 feet or so). Both back walls have a window.
Our basement is unfinished and the insulation is R12 and covers the top half of the concrete walls. We had an energy audit done and the inspector told us the current insulation was very well done but we should insulate the bottom half to really cut down on energy costs.
I would prefer to not have to remove the existing batt insulation and would like to have the rest of the basement insulated only. In the future we do plan to finish the basement but I'd at least like to get it insulated for this coming winter.
We are looking for an estimate only at this point followed by an accurate quote if the estimate is in a range we can afford.
I have a home constructed in the 1930s. The attic is insulated with only 5 inches of cellulose and requires an upgrade to modern levels. It will require proper ventilation from the soffits to be maintained. The area is approximately 700 square ft. Also the vast majority of the upstairs is lath and plaster with no insulation in the walls. I would like to have the walls filled with insulation and have some type of vapour barrier in place. I am told you can go over the existing lath and plaster with drywall after the walls are filled. Can you install an effective vapour barrier between the lath and plaster and the new drywall or is this to be avoided??
The site has easy access and the rooms and walls are readily accessable.
Inspect existing attic & roof insulation. Recommend remedial works to upgrade to reasonable modern standard. The house is storey and a half, built 1949. Attic insulation upgraded several years ago, but needs inspection and renovation. Attics (4) are accessible with advance notice. (panels have to be removed). Bedroom ceilings are cathedral type.
Need to define work required, method of approach, expected improvements, and of course cost estimate and schedule to complete work.
During a recent renovation, we had pot lights installed in the top floor of our home. We recently had a enegy audit and the consultant advised that there was considerable airflow coming in from the attic, leaving us to believe that the previous contractor didn't apply new vapour barrier over the pot lights &/or re-insulate. We have approximately 24 lights that need to be inspected and repaired. I would also like to add more insulation, as the house is over 20 years old and may not have up to date standards.
This is my daughter room which only has one inside wall and can be cold in the winter. Her only inside wall which is 9 ft long is taken up by a small desk counter and a closet. I would like the closet taken out along with the shelf. The wall backs on to the bathroom and swear to god there is no insullation in this house and you hear everything. I would like to know if we can poke holes in the top of the walls and sray insullation down them to get some sound barrier between the bathroom and no where her bed will be. I will need the wall fixed once closet is out and insullation is in and i have some replacement carpet to put down that was extra. Look for more projects under Project Peak Place.
We had a roof leak in late 2016 in our en suite Bathroom. This caused water accumulation in the ceiling area and caused the drywall to sag considerably. We have replaced the roof since, but need help fixing the ceiling area (remove old one, use anti fungal, re-insulate, and re-drywall). We are fine with just using primer paint to finish it. Note that this bathroom has it's own self contained attic area, so it hasn't affected the main house. Also, when we replaced the roof, we had an exhaust vent installed for a fan. We would be looking for the chosen contractor to supply and install a quiet bathroom fan as part of this project.
My house, which is new to me, is a 50 year old bungalow. There is a problem with noise in the house, caused by a sump pump that runs constantly when it is damp outside, noise from the furnace /airconditioner and noise from the windows. The house is small, the noisy mechanics are located pretty centrally in the house, so noise at night when sleeping is a problem. I need some help with the best method to eliminate the noise problem.
