Rebuilding From the Inside Out

New Insulation

For this project, Bradley's crew reinsulated the wall from the inside, carefully cutting and fitting the mineral wool into the irregular framing cavities.

Smart Vapor-Control Membrane

Access to the interior face of the wall permitted the crew to use variable-permeability Intello membrane from Pro Clima, which allows the wall to dry to the interior when conditions are appropriate.

Filling Gaps

To insulate small cracks between windows and framing, the crew injected low-expansion polyurethane "gun foam."

Sealing Window Edges

The crew sealed the smart membrane to the window edges with Pro Clima Tescon Profil tape.
