Exterior Housing

The exterior uses insulated JM Corbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam for its “air-sealing” characteristics to create an air and moisture impermeable thermo envelope around the entire home. Applying JM” Rigid Foil Faced Board on the outside of the framed structure, was also part of the system.

JM Corbond 2# CLOSED Cell Foam, in addition to being used in the exterior walls, was also “down-sprayed” in the attic, on top of the drywall after it was applied for the ceiling, to achieve the thermo envelope. Blown fiber glass insulation was also installed in the attic, over the Corbond, to bring the total R-Value to an approximate 65+.

The JM Corbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam is utilized in the floors of lower levels underneath the concrete floors, and ceilings of the lower level with the in-floor heat system. The Corbond helps to “push-up” the heat to keep the floors warm.

In-floor Heat | Foam

*JM Corbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam: 4’’ applied to block foundation and into block cores.

floor-insulation-1*JM 1’’ AP Foil Faced Foam Board: Applied to exterior framing to create thermo envelope.

*JM Carbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam: 2’’ applied to dirt floor of lower level basement and garage floor.

*JM Carbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam: 3’’ applied to rim joists.

*JM 1’’ AP Foil Faced Foam Board: Installed for continuous rafter venting with 1’’ air space.

*JM Corbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam: Applied to air-exchange duct work in attic, on bottom side before drywall was applied for the ceiling.

*JM Corbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam: Applied to ceiling of lower level basement for in-floor heat on main level above – tubing for in-floor heat installed on top of the main floor level.

Interior Wall Insulation

Interior Wall Insulation

*JM Hybrid Application System:  4” average JM corbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam followed by JM SPIDER Custom Insulation System:  applied to sloped ceiling areas. Some areas had only corbond and SPIDER applied directly to the roof deck.

*JM Hybrid Application System: 2” average JM Corbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam followed by JM SPIDER Custom Insulation System:  Applied to 2×6 exterior walls, next to layer of 1” AP Foil Faced Foam Board that was installed on the exterior framing.

*JM Corbond III 2# CLOSED Cell Foam: 3” “down-sprayed” in the attic, on top of the drywall after it was installed. (Note: all can lights and speakers, in the attic, had insulated boxes installed over them, before they were sealed with corbond).

*JM CLIMATE-PRO Blown Fiber Glass: Applied to flat attic areas on top of Corbond.
