Attic Insulation. The Best Bang for your Buck.
Greater Denver and Colorado is host to many under-insulated homes, despite our extreme weather fluctuations. It’s possible to make your home much more comfortable and energy efficient by investing in insulation improvements.

BENEFITS OF INSULATING YOUR ATTIC
Old and compressed insulation loses its effectiveness. Signs of degradation include unevenness in your attic insulation and mold or mildew buildup. A fresh blanket of full life insulation with consistent depth and compactness is optimal in terms of effectiveness and longevity.
Insulation degradation can also lead to problems in the health of your home. Commonly, degraded insulation results in moisture problems; mold, mildew, poor indoor air quality, rotting wood more susceptible to insect infestations, damaged drywall and more.
Less energy is required to keep your home at the desired temperature. This will save you money, most projects see a return on investment within 2 to 3 years.
Reduced noise. Noise travels through your walls and up through the framing in your attic. Insulating will reduce the amount of noise that is able to travel between rooms and from outside. Special soundproofing insulation products are also available for the best possible sound proofing.
It’s not just good for your wallet, it’s good for the environment. By insulating your attic, you are helping to reduce your energy consumption and carbon footprint.
SEALING AIR LEAKS. WHY IT’S IMPORTANT.
Ceilings, especially in older homes, are notorious for air infiltration, or the amount of air that escapes through cracks into your home. The usual suspects are recessed lighting, framing, electrical and drywall contacts, and other fixtures attached to the attic. Light fixtures in particular can also be a fire hazard and covering/sealing them helps to eliminate that risk. By sealing cracks and any openings present in your attic, we stop any undesired air flow and greatly improve your home’s ability to retain heated and cooled air.
HOW WE GIVE YOU THE BEST SERVICE IN INSULATION.
Here are some of the practices we follow to ensure an optimal insulation job:
Detect all air leaks in the attic and seal them properly before installing insulation.
Thermal bridging is when heat or cold is transferred through a surface, typically joist wood in your attic. We minimize this by ensuring joist floors are enveloped by our blown-in insulation.
We ensure that spacing between batt insulation is kept to a minimum, ensuring the best thermal envelope possible.
Our technicians are trained to blow in insulation at a consistent depth across the full attic. This ensures that no cold spots are created due to an uneven surface.
We are attentive to detail to ensure that every nook and cranny gets the adequate amount of insulation, whether that be a blown-in or batted insulation.
We strictly follow manufacturer guidelines for installation, including coverage, depth and compaction requirements to achieve the desired R-value.
