Listen: Gary, Scott And California discussed on Helitech Waterproofing Home Improvement Show
"Certainly in the food Bank will also accept things like hygiene. Problems as well. So anything like that? They will gladly accept. Yeah. I had a guest on last weekend who was burned out of California by the fires. And it was interesting. His biggest observation and tell you this guy was pretty hefty. You know, make it happen sorta guy he said, you know, being homeless was a fulltime job. So, you know, all the things that takes that you and I take for granted go to the store. Grab a few. And it takes care of us. You know, not easy to get. So good point. Todd people in our brother, thanks for helping. Thanks, Scott so much power. Right. Let's see what let's see what the phones. And let's talk with Gary about insulation. Gary what's cooking here on KOMO ex? Well, I've got more questions. Now what I thought did to begin with. What my racial question was. I've got my house is built in ninety one. Okay. I've gotten the blowing installation. And so it's probably. Maybe six inches two inches over to you know, to bores. And so jumped maybe before I thought, and because I could get some role a role insulation. Team. So I bought some. And is it okay? To go ahead and put that over the top of that road blown in insulation. It found fault doesn't have four on perfect. Perfect. Yes. It is. Yes. It is. Now here here's the ticket. Are you experiencing any problems with the drywall condensation or kind of nail pop looking indentations of nails or screws on the ceiling, Gary? No, no, okay. Okay. I think you're probably in good shape. So you've got a good a well ventilated addict space that you're up in there too. Where ridge Vander sof advance or panir all you've got away for that air got rich Vance, and I've got suffered dance course on mop kick or house on a front. I've got probably two inches two inches a foot and a half or two feet overhang. So you know, I've got bench going there. But on abandoned a house. The bedroom is you know, you got to food all the hang out from the basement. So you don't have any rich, you know, place for share, which I don't know. That's a big problem or not. No, I think you're in pretty good stead here. Frankly, you've got an attic, it's well ventilated. So you're moisture is getting out. The best thing to do would be to vacuum out the existing blown in insulation. And then spray, maybe spray foam or some sort of a vapor block on it. But it sounds like you're not really having any problems. So that that's the best thing to do. And then put insulation over the top of it. But if you just go on the plan, you're on I think you're going to be in pretty good shape as well six inch. You've got unfazed insulation that works at a let the moisture pass right on through your attic is removing at once it passes through. I think you're on a pretty good track. Gary the only thing you could do to improve would beat a vapor block right at the ceiling line, which means removing that insulation, and then reinstalling it or putting new stuff over it. But that gets pretty pricey right? Okay. Had another question. Should I tape? God that installation instead of laying the other on top of it, should I write it off level with the two before, but the are twenty five insulation down and then. At eighty between the cracks were that meets up. You know, kinda don't worry about that with that kind of time. Gary, I would rather you go around all of your ceiling. Lightboxes your electrical boxes and caulk around the Ed or spray foam around that be careful spray foam traps, heat as well but blocked that because most of the air blocks are around the plumbing pipe stacks sophists and electrical ceiling fixtures. So that I would rather you focus on that leaking air, and then just don't worry about Reagan, the installation, just cross your bats across your ceiling. Joyce instead of parallel and try and get them as close together as you can. Okay. But I guess now this brings on another question. Out of time here make a quick, please. Okay. All right. Okay. Just up money. So I'm not gonna be able to cut this thing. Right now cannot store my installation. Could I buy storage place and put it stored in there or should I put it down in the basement or put it out on my deck and just cover covered deck? Look could I just put a tarp all the to keep it from getting wet or should it be stored inside? I would just rake it from one side of the addict to the other we seldom remove insulation on that to get to what we need to do it just rakes back, and then it back out flat. And as long as you're going to cover it with the art twenty-five or thirty unfazed bat, you're in good shape. But don't put pulling it out of the attic is a big deal. It move on it from side to side really isn't now make sure you watch your respiratory coverage and safety with a respirator, and you know, or mask on your on your over your face. Okay. My question is goofed up money. So it'll be six months before I can. But this insulation they now so should I stored up there and just part up there in the attic and leave it up there. Oh, yeah. I'm sorry. Yes, sir deck and just covered. Stephen Ovalles decks covered. Not. I'd rather see it up in your attic, then outside where the rain and humidity gets to it frankly rolling up there and put it in there, and I get someone else. Okay. All right. Sure, appreciate it. Okay. Gary, good luck, my friend, Larry. Home Scott, Mozambique, Cam wax, back for more after this. When it comes."
