Attic Insulation Services

Attic insulation services contribute to less heat gain and loss in the summer and winter by strengthening the insulation in your attic. This can lead to lower energy bills, improved indoor comfort, and a more sustainable home.

How Does Attic Insulation Works?

•Assessment•

A professional insulation contractor will assess the current condition of your attic and determine the type and amount of insulation needed.  In addition, we will consider factors such as the size of the attic, existing insulation, and any air leaks or moisture issues.

•Preparation•

The technician will clean the attic and remove any remains and old insulation (if applicable) before installing insulation. They will also address any moisture problems or air leaks. To stop air leaks, they might also caulk holes, cracks, and gaps.

•Insulation Material Selection•

The contractor will recommend the most suitable insulation material for your attic based on factors such as your climate, budget, and energy efficiency goals. Moreover, fiberglass, cellulose, and spray foam are common materials used for insulation.

•Installation•

The chosen insulation material will be installed in the attic. Depending on the kind, installation techniques for attic insulation can vary. For example, fiberglass batts or rolls may be laid between the attic joists, while loose-fill insulation may be blown in using special equipment. Additionally, insulation made of spray foam is used as a fluid that condenses and solidifies into foam.

•Distribution•

The insulation will be spread evenly across the attic to ensure it covers everything and works effectively. The contractor will also insulate the walls, ceiling, and floor of the attic properly.

•Air sealing•

In addition to insulation, the contractor may perform air sealing measures to further improve energy efficiency. This involves applying plaster or another sealing substance to seal gaps, holes, and cracks in the attic to stop drafts and air leaks.

•Cleanup•

Following the completion of the attic insulation installation, we will clean up any debris or mess. We are going to make sure the attic stays organized and orderly.
