Hi, we have purchased a 1950s semi-detached with old and inadequate insulation around the house rim. We would like to get some old rock insulation removed and new rock batting put in; in a few spots this involves removing some old cardboard ceiling and getting above an inconvenie\nt 2 x 4. This is really a do it yourself project except that we are too busy with work and I have asthma.
This is really not a big job - 1 day at most I think. The two 2x4s along two of the walls are the only complication; I'm interested in input on how to deal with these.
Our house is approx. 6 years old and has an unfinished basement. Two of the interior basement walls (approximately 105 ft) show a lot of humidity in the winter (there is frozen water on these walls). I am not inclined to use spray foam (health issues) and instead would like to use Acoustic sealer in joist cavities, then Roxul and finally vapour barriers. Is it a good idea and if so how to find a reasonable constructor to do this job and how much it'd cost?
The house if quite old and is thought to have be built in the 1850s. Two stories, about 1200 square feet. The insulation is quite terrible and the temperature within the house varies greatly according to the outside temperature.
Not too sure what could be done.
I have been suggested that foam insulation could be very useful. There doesn't seem to be much insulation at all in the roof. Looking for job to be done before winter.
We are renting the house, if more specific info is needed than we can ask the owners.
My townhouse bathroom gets a lot of condensation on the ceiling in the winter. And the ceiling fan is old and doesn't move much air. There is no outside window in the bathroom, and the warm/moist air from showers is causing moisture on the ceiling, especially in the cold winter months.
I'm looking for a contractor that can do the following:
- replace/repair vapour barrier above bathroom ceiling (in attic)
- replace (or upgrade) the insulation above bathroom in attic (I'm thinking fiberglass, but I don't care. Probably need R40)
- remove old bathroom ceiling fan, and install new fan (install, attach vent to existing pipe, and connect wires)
The townhouse was build in 1985. The attic is insulated with a loose cellulose (newspaper?) material. The bathroom is 10' x 6.2'.
Please provide a quote for the work, labour and materials separately. The materials can be adjusted depending on the actual costs depending on the type of fan, or type of insulation.
If you need to visit and see the the site, we can arrange a date.
Location is in the Baseline & Woodroofe area, near Algonquin College.
Thanks for your bids!
I'm searching for options for soundproofing the ceiling in my bedroom. I do not have access to the room above. My budget is flexible and will depend on the options available and their effectiveness. The room is about 200 square feet. The ceiling is 8 feet high and easily accessible. The upstairs room has laminate flooring. The main noises are the floor cracking and neighbors walking heavily.
Thanks for your time!
Two rooms in our house tend to be alot colder in the winter then other rooms. We need somebody to come in & do thermal imaging scan to check 1) is there any missing insulations inside the wall?
2) give us an estimate of how much it will cost to fix this problem. Our house is a single family house and is about 12 years old.
