Plugs and Blower rental

Postby kellysmall » Wed May 25, 2011 12:27 am

I have a question about the material uses and process to plug a exterior hole - material used and process. I also would like to know if I can rent the higher pressure blowers.

Plug material and how to install it..
My house has two types of siding -- wood and stucco

Do you have instructions on how to make the plugs, or is it better to buy them? If best to make, can you point me to appropriate directions? I had heard the plugs two edges goes from narrow to wider, is that true?

How to install the plug without it falling through -
For stucco siding - What do you put over the plug to prepare for the stucco patch?
For woodsiding, I assume the woodsiding is installed on top of the plugs -

Regarding the Blower and 3.5 1bs per 8' by 16" cavity -
Do rental yards typically rent this type of blower? - (I live in sourthen CA )-

Appreciate any tips, pointer you can give..

Thank you,
kellysmall

You can't typically rent quality blowers to achieve the proper density when blowing sidewalls with rented machines. Even if you find one that is appropriate it will likely not have been frequently serviced and may be operating far below its original rating.

Plugs can be purchased from a variety of online insulation distributors. Consider .

You can but wood, plastic or foam plugs. Most people use kiln dried pine plugs and put the exterior siding back over after drilling. Many people caulk the plug seem too, only takes about 5 seconds per hole.

Finally, beware of drilling in stucco as it often contained asbestos. Follow EPA safety guidelines to protect yourself and those nearby.
