Attic insulation regulates the heat transfer between your attic and the rest of your home. This is a key component in keeping your home warm in winter and cooler in the summer. Proper installation of insulation is critical in order to achieve this balance. At Capitol Roofing, Inc., we are experts in the various types of insulation and are trained in the proper installation techniques for each type.
The two most popular types of installation for home use are blanket and loose-fill. Blankets come in pre-cut batches and must be carefully installed in such a way that there are no gaps or low spots in the depth of insulation between the joists. Loose-fill requires special equipment to properly install and if blown incorrectly, might minimize the effectiveness.of the insulation.
At Capitol Roofing, Inc., our experts are fully qualified to help you determine which option is best for your home. We will install it quickly, effectively and cleanly, leaving your home more comfortable while lowering heating and cooling costs.
Installing attic insulation regulates the heat transfer between your attic and the rest of your home.
The most common mistake that homeowners make regarding their attic insulation is installing an incorrect amount that their attic needs. Generally, if the joists of the floor in the attic are visible, more insulation is needed. The thickness of insulation needed can vary depending on several factors, but 10 to 14 inches are generally needed in addition to an even distribution of insulation. There should be no gaps or low spots in the depth of the insulation in order to achieve the best results.
There are several style options of attic insulation. The blanket type (put link to example here), and loose-fill insulation (put link to example here) are the two most popular options. Blankets come in pre-cut batches, while loose-fill requires special equipment to properly install. Loose-fill can be applied in addition to blanket type and vice versa, meaning there are no restrictions as to a certain type to the insulation that is already in place.
In order to decide upon the best results for your home, consulting a professional roofing contractor (put link for contact info here) can provide an accurate evaluation in looking at the various factors of your home as to which type/how much insulation your home needs.
