Blown-In Insulation

Bob joins insulation contractor Joe Sheridan to witness the process of blowing insulation in behind original plaster walls.

Clip Summary

Bob meets again with insulation contractor Joe Sheridan. In the main house, Cocoon insulation is being blown into the original plaster walls. To accomplish this, Joe's crew has drilled holes every 16 inches, reaching every stud cavity. First, they apply the insulation to the bottom portion and fill until solid. Then they move on to the upper portion.

The installers' goal is to create maximum density in the cavities, to leave no air pockets. When the insulation process is complete, a plasterer will patch each hole individually.
