Kinzler Insulates Historic Boulder, CO Home

This historic home in Boulder is being converted into apartment units by Urban Green Development. Bringing the building up to code presented some unique challenges in achieving energy efficiency.

The experts at Kinzler Construction Services installed closed cell spray foam insulation to get to R-50 at the roof line. Batt insulation was used in much of the home and blown-in-blanket (BIBS) was installed in some areas because of its ability to form to small gaps and oddly sized obstructions. The finished project resulted in outstanding thermal performance and excellent sound control.

The Passive Fire Protection You’ve Wanted All Along!

Cavity-SHIELD Fiberglass Batts

Ask us about installing NEW Cavity-SHIELD multifamily, concealed-space, noncombustible fiberglass batts!

Cavity-SHIELD fiberglass is National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 13 compliant, noncombustible and cost-effective insulation. It is designed for use in concealed spaces between floors within wood-framed multifamily housing.

  • Simple installation: Batts are friction-fit into cavities, without the need for special equipment, reducing the time and resources required for installers to complete the job.
  • Cost-effective alternative: Cavity-SHIELD is another option for construction professionals looking for passive fire protection and a cost-effective alternative to blow-in or sprinklers in the interstitial space.
  • Sound control: Expect noise between floors to reduce significantly.

Whataburger Restaurant Tyler, TX

Whataburger restaurant located in Tyler, TX.

Kinzler Construction Services insulates new restaurant in Tyler.

When you’re enjoying the great food inside Tyler’s newest Whataburger restaurant, you can also enjoy the building’s comfort thanks to a quality insulation install from Kinzler!

This project required some problem-solving from our expert team because the 2×6 roof trusses did not allow space to install the specified R38 insulation using a traditional staple-in method. Instead, our installers did a “wire-up” install, using nails and 16ga galvanized steel wire to hang the batt insulation into place.

As always, the project was inspected for quality and the customer was very happy with the speed and quality of the installation!
