What is deadly and might be lurking in your basement? No, not a Ninja (well probably not), in most cases it is Radon. And it is important to know what Radon is and how to ensure it isn't a threat to your household. From building to testing, I will share what I learned about Radon while building my house.
The roof is on, and insulation contractors are now advising Ted Storm on how much open-cell foam to spray on the back side of the roof deck. Three contractors suggest the same thing, but is their advice on the right track?

I'm a huge believer in Spray Foam for air sealing, but foam will only air seal the cavity that it's sprayed into. Here's where Owens Corning's new Energy Complete has a leg up on Foam. In this video you'll see how their system does an excellent job of air sealing so that their total-fill fiberglass system doesn't have any air flow issues to deal with. -Matt Risinger
