Sealing a Vancouver Laneway House.

A Laneway house that was built in 2011.

We recently sealed up a 663SQFT laneway house located in Vancouver, BC that was built in 2011. The tenant just moved out and so the owner decided to improve the efficiency of the home.

All designed openings, such as ducts, electrical and plumbing, need to be covered prior to sealing. All finished horizontal surfaces need to be covered.

The starting airtightness was 9.23ACH, the problem was isolated to areas around the staircases.

After two hours of sealing, our team reduced the leakage to 1.73.ACH, this translates to an Effective Leakage Area (ELA) of 8.4 square inches! The results are  absolutely incredible for such a short amount of time!
