Attic insulation is vital for maintaining comfort, reducing utility expenses, and preventing potential roof damage due to temperature fluctuations and moisture. Attics are typically are the simplest, cheapest and best return on investment.  Let us help to enhance your overall home comfort and sustainability.

Even if your attic is “insulated” the effectiveness drops 71% if it has only 5% missing area according to the Department of Energy! An installed R30 batt has only R8.5 with only a few gaps. Time, rodents, and haphazard installation may be greatly affecting the performance of your “insulated” attic performance.

The modern approach is to air seal to stop the drafts then properly insulate with quality insulation providing a temperate, efficient, and lasting savings.

I grew up in an under insulated home that had drafts from the cabinets, outlets, baseboards and around the windows. Short of a remodel my parents thought we just had to live with it. The cause of this was largely due to old air sealing and insulation techniques. Fortunately, with modern dense packed cellulose insulation those walls can be filled helping to eliminate those drafts while adding modern insulation that is;

  • Fireproof
  • Rodent repellent
  • Mold resistant
  • Air sealing
  • Energy efficient
  • Completely renewable
  • Non toxic and not itchy

The best part… all the insulation can be done from outside with little to no evidence any construction has taken place! All of our staff is trained to remove a small piece of siding, drill a small hole, insulate and carefully replace the siding. Most homes can be done in only 1 or 2 days with little to no evidence any insulation work was done.

Even if you already have some insulation in your walls Dense packed cellulose can be added. By adding the insulation via a small hole and hose we can fill the full wall cavity by compressing the old fluffy insulation and replacing it with densely packed cellulose right against it. 

Depending on when your home was built you may not have basement insulation or even worse have basement vents functioning as open basement windows, we now know that those building methods were harmful and short sighted leading to discomfort and high energy bills.

As wonderful as the northeast is, it comes with the reality that in the fall months that mice make their way into our homes through small hidden gaps. Once inside they set up their own little homes in our basement, walls and attic insulation. Even if you believe you are mice free are you sure the past owners were too? The disgusting truth is that those little freeloaders destroy traditional fiberglass insulation and leave behind gross little gifts that no one wants. Before adding additional insulation, many homeowners opt to remove the existing insulation and the area be cleaned and sanitized prior to adding new rodent repellent insulation. Why not give your home a fresh new start?

The dreaded and costly ice dam has a simple and easy fix; air sealing the home, insulating and ventilating the attic. Ice dams form when warm air inside a home escapes through the attic, melting snow on the roof. This melted snow then refreezes at the roof’s edge, causing water to back up under shingles leading to leaks, water damage, and compromised structural integrity. Proper insulation, ventilation, and living space air sealing are key to stopping ice dams and safeguarding your home. Insulate tight, ventilate right and never have to rake your roof again.

Using a basement liner acts as a barrier against humidity. Preventing mold and mildew growth, moisture infiltration. It can increase the overall energy efficiency of your home by preventing heat loss through the basement walls. Finally, basement liners can add value to your property by protecting it from moisture-related structural issues and making the space more usable and sanitary.
