WHAT’S NEW? Project Profile: Costco Morena Boulevard

whatsNewBarrier has a reputation for taking on –  and succeeding – at challenging job sites. A re-roofing job for the Costco on Morena Boulevard in San Diego is a case in point.

The 218,000-square-foot Costco store was in desperate need of a new roof, but the store had to remain in operation while the work was being done. Adding to the challenge was the fact that the metal building is a historical landmark and had already been through a few transformations – from its start as the Hughes Aircraft Company manufacturing facility, to being used as a Price Club and later as a storage facility.

“We took an 80-year-old metal shed and turned it into an insulated retail center,” described Barrier CEO Blair Cunnings. “It was probably the toughest project we’ve ever completed as a company. A steep roof slope, bad weather and the fact that the store was operating while we were working made the project quite a challenge.”

Barrier applied 2 inches of polyurethane foam and 50 mils of United Diathon High Tensil Coatings to the roof. The Barrier crew also installed 200 Energy-Star skylights, repaired and replaced three interior gutters and installed 60 new drains. To create a water-tight seal, foam was used to seal the seams where the metal walls meet the roof.

The project took 12 employees 70 days to complete.

“The building had more than 135 leaks before we installed the new roof,” Cunnings said. “Because of the multiple uses of the building over the years, there were many flashing details and irregularities that only spray foam could seal. The building had no existing insulation, so adding a polyurethane foam roof was beneficial to the owner.”

The project was nominated for a Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance Industry Excellence Award.

Costco Underfloor Heating

it's really a great little luxury. we don't think of it as part of our heating system for the house, it's just an extra that warms the floor so our tootsies don't get so chilly on the cold tiles during the winter.

just as an update, it appears that the costco underfloor heat mats are manufactured by Watts, which markets the same product as Sun-Touch elsewhere.

Sun-Touch (and the costco Premiere brand) are ultra low EMF-output systems. they utilize a self-canceling system that reduces the EMF output to about 1/40th of Nu-Heat, and 1/20th of WarmTiles.

And they're much less expensive. I did some measuring and figuring and went ahead and ordered up five mats that I'm going to use in our kitchen remodel. Five mats (about 110 sq. ft) plus the installation and control kit for a bit less than $1000.

They haven't arrived yet, but I figured with Costco's return policy (they take anything back for whatever reason for a full refund, including shipping) it was kind of a no-brainer.

I'll post an update once we get the product and then install it and get it up and running.

Attic Insulation - Costco

Hi Guys,
I am looking to get my attic insulation updated and asked costco and a guy came and gave me an estimate of $1.25/ square foot. He said they will install or extend the baffles. They will use blown in fibreglass for R-50 to 18 inches. Right now it is only upto 5 inches. (So they will add another 13 inches). There is apparently a lifetime warranty as in if the insulation settles to less than 15 inches they will do it again or something along those line. Made a comment about the attic hatch and how that is wasting energy and they will upgrade it.

Good quote and go ahead or ask some other person.

What are your thoughts and recommendations on this.

Thanks

Hi - I am also interested in doing the same.

I got the same/similar quote. I was hoping someone from RFD here could chime in.

TIA.

I got a similar deal. We err down to 4 inches. I’m getting mine blown in this Wednesday. I’ll let you know how it goes.

It was way cheaper than the quote I got from Home Depot and quite close to what it would have cost me to do it myself after factoring in the number of bags needed and trunk rental from HD.

I have a quote of $1.08 sq ft with a 10 year warranty. To me the reputation and standing of the company is more important than saving on a few cents.

What was the contractor's name? I would imagine it could change depending on the store location.

Have you looked at blown in cellulose as opposed to fiberglass? If you're in the GTA consider giving Tropical Insulation a call - they upgraded my attic insulation to R50. Price was very reasonable.

I did my own 1500 square feet for $400ish including air sealing (a bitch but very very important) and I did my garage to R30. I think I did the attic to R70. I used my trailer and made 2 trips to get the stuff. Needed a feeder on the ground. Was 2 hours or less to actually blow. Air sealing was a full day, and thats the stuff most pros dont put the time in to do.

I've blown in cellulose before and agree it's pretty easy. What I'm not keen to do is all of the baffling on on my 2 low stop attics (back split house). I may suck it up an doit but I'm waiting for the rebates I hope to get with our free home energy audit that's supposed to come with the free GreenOn tstat.

The baffles sucked. Rolling around my garage that had NOTHING sucked even more. I'm not young and could be in better shape. Air sealing was the real bitch though. Wasn't as painful as baffles, but just finding everything and getting it right (as you would only do on your own home). If I could have, I would have emptied the whole attic and either re-used or just started new. I have a 5 HP dust collector now that I could have actually done it.

I paid $350 to add a layer of R30 to 600 sf. over the blown in fiberglass and $650 for R60 for a 800 sf section (I removed the old fiberglass bat insulation from this section and air sealed the attic). This was back in 2014.

I remember him. Nice guy. I had him over for a quote 2 years ago.
However, I went spray foam route so didn't consult with him further.

I would change the quote from 'inches of insulation to be installed' to bags of insulation to be installed. A well known scam for insulation is for the company to make extra money by not blowing all of the insulation needed but to measure only how high it is in the attic. While the warranty may be to come back and blow in some more to account for settling, you would have to go up and measure it, then convince them it settled (they will probably have to send someone out to measure themselves), and then make time for them to come back and blow some more in. It would be easier if you know how many bags should be blown in (calculations are dead simple depending on the product used), add a few extra (5% or so) in case of errors and then use that number in the contract. This way, you can easily verify how many bags were delivered.

I also used Dominion for mine but not through Costco. I did blown fibreglass which I calculated to around $1.15/sqft. I already had R30 of existing fiberglass and felt it does not settle over time like blown cellulose

I too need to top up my attic. Have R32 and want it up to at least R50. Figuring the size of my home (2395sf), I'm guessing the attic space is around 1340sq.ft, so based on the OP's quote of $1.25/sqft, that about be $1675?

Sitting on her ass, the man, aiming, moved his head over his shaggy lips, groping between them for the entrance to the hospitable cave. Apparently, the wife's vagina was already well enough developed, since his penis, without stopping, freely slipped inside, to the very eggs. With a stifled cry, Marina swayed forward and could not resist on her weakened hands, fell on her elbows.

Holding her by the hips, the man began to string her with heat on his pin, driving it in with sharp, strong. Jerks.

Her cunt stopped its frantic screams and perked up, listening to the sensations creeping up behind her. She slightly moved away from him, protruding her rear, expecting to feel the other hand on it, which, obeying the measured. Rhythm of his movements, steadily approached her.

And the hand did not disappoint her expectations. The next, heavier than the two previous ones, the movement of his hand did not flow down the skirt, only slightly agitating her folds.
