Why This Job Was Important

  • Demonstrates the wide application that AeroBarrier has for different housing types and materials
  • Of all the housing options, log construction is one of the most difficult to make airtight

  • The results obtained with this project illustrate that all houses can be made tighter with the right approach to the project

This is a bunk house constructed of logs. The building is intended to be for over-flow of people from the main house to be able to sleep, and have washroom and shower facilities. The AeroBarrier sealant creates a “fog” in the room during the process. Some of the sealant material will fall out of the air and as such, finished materials that are horizontal need to be protected. The logs, because of their rounded shape need to be protected over the top of that curvature until the surface starts to curve back in. At the same time, we want to leave the joints between the logs open so that sealant can get in to seal any cracks or holes between the logs. This application took some attention to detail to ensure the finished logs were appropriately protected. As seen in the picture, each exposed log was protected.

Results

Impressive results on this one going from 4.57 ACH to start down to 1.08 ACH. Once again this demonstrates the versatility of the AeroBarrier process to seek out and seal cracks and holes that are not accessible or not visible to the workers on site.
