When dealing with large gaps within a home, consider using backer rod as filler before caulking. Backer rod provides a flexible but yet firm surface to apply caulking to. Another benefit of backer rod is its ability to repel water and help seal off air leaks.  It will also provide ideal joint design (two points of adhesion with less of the product applied in the middle of the joint) for caulking. Using backer rod will inevitably save you and your customers money, as it is less expensive then caulk. Next time, before you fill a gap with large amounts of caulk, consider backer rod.

Keep These Weatherization Items Handy

As winter sets in, homeowners are scrambling to add new insulation where needed and further weatherize their home. Here is a list of a few things to keep on hand that you’ll likely need on the job.
1.) Insulation Supports: -these wire supports are handy for installing roll and batt insulation.
2.) Insulation Netting: – alternative to wire supports. Great for wood sub floors and second story floors.
3.) Caulk and Sealants: caulk can be your best friend when weatherizing a building. Keep a few tubes on hand to seal off around doors and windows.

4.) Safety Respirator: protect yourself from air born contaminates when hanging insulation.
5.) Hard Hat: You never know when you’ll need one!
6.) First Aid Kit: Always prepare for the worst and try to be as safe as possible while working.

Knee Wall Attic Access Door Insulation Cover

Knee Wall

What is a Knee Wall? A Knee Wall can be defined as a short wall usually less than three feet in height. They are often found in homes with finished attics and built to connect to the sloping roof. The Knee Wall serves as a short, solid wall in the finished attic. Installing an Attic Access Door into the Knee Wall allows access to the space behind the Knee Wall. The space behind the knee wall makes a great storage area.

Air leakage from an un-insulated Knee Wall Attic Access Door can cause heat to transfer from the attic into the living quarters in the summer, and from the living quarters to the attic in the winter. In order to avoid this heat transfer, consider installing an Energy Shield II Attic Access Door Cover. It will help to reduce your heating and cooling costs by sealing off the opening in your Attic Access Door.

The Energy Shield II attaches to attic side of the Knee Wall Framework. It has a zippered opening in which you un-zip to gain access to the attic. It installs easily in minutes.

Service Partners has standard sizes available: 24” X 48” for a Knee Wall Door, and 24”x 80” for a Full Size Door.
