How To Insulate Your Attic – Home Improvement

Before winter sets it, it’s a good idea to check the insulation in your attic to make sure it’s providing an effective barrier to the cold weather. Loose-fill or batt insulation is typically installed in an attic. Loose-fill insulation is usually less expensive to install than batt insulation, and provides better coverage when installed properly.  Before insulating, seal any air leaks and make roof and other necessary repairs.  Insulate and air seal any knee walls — vertical walls with attic space directly behind them — in your home as well.  In addition, if you’re building a new home or remodeling, make sure any attic decking that provides additional storage space or a platform for a heating and/or cooling unit or hot water tank is raised above the ceiling joists to leave room for adequate insulation.   Have questions or need help?  Give us a call here at Blass Residential Services.  Yep, we do that!
