Multi-Step Form Attic Insulation

Step 1 of 3

What Type of Building Insulation Is Best?

The choice of insulation depends on which part of the house you need it for. The attic, just like the rest of your house, may require a unique type of insulation. One factor to consider is the R-Value of each type: the maximum thermal performance, so you have the optimum comfort in every room.

Blown-In / Loose Fill Insulation

As the name suggests, this type of insulation is blown-in into designated spaces such as wall cavities, unfinished attic floors and walls, enclosed walls, and hard-to-reach areas using a tube. This type of insulation is very popular because it is easy to install and it is relatively affordable. Blown-in insulation fills the spaces between the walls and seals any cracks, so it’s one of the best types for energy efficiency. It’s also great to seal any spaces that let in air, such as outlets, pipes, and ductwork. The material used for blown-in insulation is fiberglass.

Batts And Rolls Attic Insulation

Batting is also known as blanket insulation, and it is suitable for spaces that have no obstructions, such as floors, ceilings, and unfinished walls. The attic insulation looks just like a cotton candy blanket, and it is spread out flat and fitted through beams, joists, and studs. Batts slow down heat or cold from passing through and trapping air between the tiny fibers. The difference between batts and rolls is that batts are pre-cut to fit between those tiny places like studs, while rolls come in a long continuous blanket. It is a very affordable type of insulation that lasts for many years if it’s well taken care of.

Foam Board Attic Insulation

Foam board insulation is installed on unfinished walls and roofs during construction. You can also install it during a major renovation and put it on the outside of your home. Rigid foam boards offer air-tight insulation at a very affordable cost. A more expensive but easier type of foam board insulation is foam spray which works the same way, but it is in liquid form to spray it into the walls and floors.

Reflective Attic Insulation

Reflective insulation is typically installed in attic ceilings or under the roof. It works by reflecting heat from the sun instead of absorbing it hence keeping the house cool and comfortable. Materials used for reflective insulation include foil-faced kraft paper, polyethylene bubbles, plastic film, and cardboard fitted between beams, studs, and joists. While not all types of insulation necessarily require a contractor, it is best to hire one. Not only will they do a better job, but they will also seal air leaks and do other repairs before installing the insulation. If you are building a new house or renovating an old one, you should obtain a few cost estimates from a few good contractors and consider every advantage and feature of the insulation, especially the R-Value.

Do I need a professional to install the insulation in my attic?

It is always best to get a professional to install your insulation. Installing insulation can be tricky, and you will want to make sure it is done correctly so that rodents and mold don’t interfere with your insulation.

Why is there moisture in my insulation?

If you don’t routinely check your attic, you could be overlooking leaks, old insulation, or pest waste. If insulation becomes wet, it becomes a hot spot for mold to grow. When the mold begins to grow, it can become dangerous to your health.

Humane Rodent Removal and Proofing

Rodents are a nightmare for any homeowner. They can lower the value of your home by causing serious damage, foul odors, and extensively unsanitary conditions. They also pose a significant health risk to you and your family by spreading disease and causing illness. The last thing you want is to waste your time removing rodents, only to have them move right back in. At Attic Projects, we not only humanely remove the rodents and pests from your home, but we also rodent-proof your home so they can’t come back. In order to keep the pests and rodents out permanently, you have to close up every entry point that they may squeeze into. Call Attic Projects today to get your free estimate.
