Getting Rid of the Mold in Home

 

Windows Siding Roofing Central KansasHOME RENOVATION PROJECT

Gypsum, Kansas

Replaced windows, siding and roof. Tim Henry remembers the challenge and successful completion of the renovation of the Hall House. “When I first talked Kevin and Genny Halls about this project, they said that they had a problem with mold and the hollow concrete block walls of their house. That was the challenge- getting rid of the mold in home. Their doctor told them that the mold in the house was making their two daughters ill and they either had to find a way to fix the problem or to move from their house. The challenge was that we had to find a way to affix the Insulfoam insulation and the vinyl siding to the imitation stone blocks. We solved the problem by fastening plywood to the turn of the century concrete blocks and then filling the space between with insulating canister foam. We then attached 1 1/2″ of extruded poly-styrene Insulfoam insulation with double vapor barrier which gave the walls an insulation value of R 11.4 and solved the mold problem. We used a combination of 4″ straight lap vinyl siding with vinyl scallops to preserve the historically unique architectural details of the home. The Halls were able to stay in their historic home and save money on their utilities at the same time.”
