It often goes unnoticed, sitting over our heads for year after year, but the insulation in our homes performs a major service when it comes to keeping the heat in during the winter and keeping our homes cool during the summer. Typically installed when a home is built, insulation requires no maintenance to speak of, but rather, homeowners should make sure that the insulation they have is sufficient enough to do the job.
RoofingProsLocal.com offers attic insulation services. Our network of providers can determine if the level of your insulation is sufficient and make the necessary additions. We have qualified insulation professional in your community ready to serve you.
When it comes to determining whether or not you have sufficient insulation in your attic, a visual inspection will suffice. Look across the span of your attic and see if the insulation level is level with or below the level of your floor joists. If you can see the joists, then your insulation level is too low and more will need to be added. If you cannot see the joists, then the insulation level is probably okay. You should also make sure that the insulation is spread evenly throughout the attic with no low spots.
When it comes to adding insulation, levels are specified by R-Value. R-Value is a measure of insulation's ability to resist heat flow. The higher the R-Value is, the better the thermal performance of the insulation. The recommended level for most attics is to insulate to R-38 or about 10 to 14 inches, depending on insulation type.
RoofingProsLocal.com understands the need for proper insulation and takes care to make sure that insulation levels are correct in your home. Our installers and technicians are trained and experienced and able to handle any residential or commercial attic insulation needs.
When adding additional insulation, it is not imperative that you add the same kind that is already there. You can simply add loose fill on top of the fiberglass batts or blankets and vice versa. If you do choose to use fiberglass over loose fill, make sure there is no paper or foil backing….it needs to be unfaced to provide the maximum level of protection. When adding loose fill, it is always advisable to contact a professional, such as the providers with RoofingProsLocal.com.
