Is Your Home Leaking Air?
Ever felt that your home feels oddly warmer in summer and colder in winter? The answer may just be up in the attic. Many homeowners are not aware that adequate attic insulation is the most effective way to prevent heat loss in winter and contain cool air in summer.
Like all projects in and around the home, homeowners can attempt attic insulation as a DIY project, but you’ll be in better hands having professional roofers come in to inspect the extent of the job. They will be able to advise on the best way forward as there are many considerations to make, such as determining the appropriate insulation material as well as the insulation type, i.e. batts or loose-fill insulation.

Made of very fine glass fibers, fiberglass insulation is a boon for temperature regulation in the home but also performs well when it comes to shielding the home against moisture. There is a range of fiberglass insulation options available, which includes blanket fiberglass (batts and rolls) and loose-fill fiberglass. Blanket fiberglass is more manageable to DIY, but loose-fill fiberglass will need to be blown by experts.
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam forms an impenetrable barrier against air, thereby protecting the home against unwanted air leakage. They come in two varieties: open-cell or closed-cell spray foam, both of which can be installed by Above & Beyond Exterior Remodelers. Made of polyurethane foam, spray foam is blown onto roofs, walls, barriers and corners, resulting in many lasting benefits for the home. This tightly sealed barrier is what prevents unwanted hot or cold air from entering the home.
Cellulose presents the insulation material most kind to the environment. It is made of more recycled material (often recycled paper) than any other insulation alternative, and it doesn’t make use of any greenhouse gases as propellants. They can either be installed as a loose-fit or blow in. Speak to Above & Beyond Exterior Remodelers today to find the right cellulose insulation for your needs.
