Attic Projects in Kent specializes in several attic and crawl space services. Let us help you protect your home from damage.
Rodent proofing prevents rodents from entering your home. Our technicians seal holes and fix any openings to eliminate entry points. We’ll set traps to capture current infestations and eliminate food sources to prevent them from returning. You get a 10 year warranty with all rodent proofing services.
Mold and mildew affect your property value and lead to significant health problems. They are also challenging to remove, but a professional like Attic Projects will give you expert-level services to tackle the most demanding mold infestation.
Attic Projects technicians always:
You won’t need to worry about whether all the mold was removed from your home. Trust Attic Projects, and you can rest assured that it was.
Vapor barriers are plastic sheets approximately six millimeters thick. They prevent moisture from seeping through your home’s floors, walls, ceiling, or roof. Attic Projects technicians can install these barriers in your crawlspace to help prevent moisture damage, mold, rot, and decay. This protection makes your home less attractive to rodents and other pests.
If you’ve had an infestation, you’ll want to remove and replace soiled insulation. Our technicians can assess your existing insulation and determine whether your home will benefit from a replacement. We will retrofit your insulation with batt and roll or foam board insulation. Our technicians always install replacement insulation according to the most recent installation codes.
According to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a radiant barrier in your attic can reduce incoming heat by approximately 40%. These thin aluminum sheets reflect heat, preventing it from accumulating in your attic. Our technicians can assess your attic and recommend and install suitable products to improve your home’s efficiency.
Because of the rainy months in Kent, many critters seek shelter in crawl spaces and attics. They mark their territory, burrow holes, and make nests in the insulation. You’re left with a mess, and your health is endangered.
Attic Projects pros help by conducting a thorough inspection to determine the state of the space. We can clean the area and collect anything that doesn’t belong there. Once your attic or crawl space is clean, we’ll sanitize it, reducing any lingering dust and allergens.
Over time, your attic and crawl space deteriorate, affecting indoor air quality and health. By using our services to upgrade access doors and minimize points of entry, you can improve the comfort and safety of your home. Our technicians can install a ventilation system to help remove moisture. We’ll also reinforce structures to make your house more secure.
A combination of factors impacts the status of attics and crawl spaces.
Kent generally has a moderate climate with gentle winters and pleasant summers. In most areas of the Pacific Northwest, mild winters have temperatures that regularly stay above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, while summer days rarely exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Novembers in Kent see the most rainfall — an average of 8.1 inches — making adequate attic ventilation crucial. July experiences the least amount of precipitation, averaging less than one inch. Rain or snow falls approximately 159 days yearly, creating high humidity levels. At 80% humidity, December is the most humid, with July being the least sticky at 65%.
One of the oldest homes built in Kent dates back to 1885. With many homes over a century old, it’s no surprise to find worn-out attics and crawl spaces. These homes are affected by mold and rodents because they may not have effective seals like modern homes do.
The Washington State Department of Health receives endless complaints about residential mold. With rain falling nearly 160 days a year, Kent has a reasonably damp climate in which mold thrives. However, mold problems can be prevented with adequate ventilation.
Every town in America likely has to deal with rodents. The species vary, but the problem remains the same. These pests transmit harmful bacteria that can be transferred to humans.
These are the critters you should be concerned about in Kent:
The Washington State Building Code Council requires every attic in Kent to have attic insulation with a rating of R-38. This rating is approximately 10 to 12 inches of cellulose and 14 to 17 inches of fiberglass insulation.
