Attic Insulation & Venting
installing proper attic insulation is one of the most efficient ways to reduce your home's energy costs
Not too hot. not too cold. Just right.
When combined with balanced venting from soffits and roof vents, high quality insulation helps circulate air through the attic.
In the warm summer months, this reduces heat buildup and air conditioning loads. Once temperatures cool down, attic insulation keeps hot air where it should be: inside your home. It ensures a colder, well-vented attic space that is less prone to the formation of ice dams at the eaves and valleys.
If you are noticing icicle build up at the eaves of your roof, there's a good chance heat is escaping from your home. A poorly insulated attic will allow the snow on your roof to melt then refreeze in the form of icicles; a process that ultimately reduces the lifespan of your shingles.
Inorganic insulation for a healthier home
We use blown fibreglass wool insulation because it contains zero VOC gases or toxic fire retardants.
- Eliminate mold growth in the attic, which can cause the cupping and rotting of plywood, or twisting and warping of roof framing.
- This extends the life of your shingles and protects their warranty (warranties are void if the nailing surface – i.e. plywood – is rotten, warped or wont hold the nails firmly during installation).
