That's a good idea maybe i can rent one.
I think he put regular insulation in those places.
I'm thinking now that i need foam sprayed in. Can that just be sprayed in over old insulation?
I was reading about ice damns and i think that must be the case when you look at the roof? Notice the broken eves. That entrance way is completely rot inside. What the inspector said is that the water is just running in through the eves, so that is what causing it. Can you advise me a step by step fix for the entrance?
I figure gut out all the old rot and maybe check out the bottom of the roof while i'm at it. Maybe insulation could be spraying in at that time, from underneath?
So much water was run in to the entrance that the concrete steps and porch has separated and sunk down a couple of inches. So patch that up should be easy with some concrete.
But how to fix the leak and ice problem? I was thinking last night that i should extend the roof with a piece of metal, maybe 3'-4' wide, that way the rain would fall off the house 3' a way plus pass the joint connecting to the house and the entrance way. What do you think?
What i gather about ice dam problems is it is because of lack of insulation, so i was going to insult the ceiling on the first floor. What i understand is i should use regular bat insulation for this.
The basement too, you can advise me on.
I understand that the insulation should be sprayed underneath the flooring (from the basement.) The basement is fairly dry. I heard also that the insulation can be sprayed on the basement walls, Is that right?
Well thank in advance for you answers.
