Call for Attic Inspection and Insulation
Reduce heating bills and increase energy efficiency with proper insulation.
What to expect:
- Attic ventilation is very important in every home. We recommend that every home be properly ventilated. Proper ventilation includes any of the following combinations: roof vents and soffit vents, ridge vents and soffit vents, or gable vents and soffit vents
- If the home has roof vents make sure they are not plugged from animal, birds or bees nests.
- We recommend that every attic have a minimum of 10″ to 12″ of insulation installed.
- We look closely for rotted sheathing caused from water leaks. Common areas to find damage sheathing is near chimneys, around any roof vents, around sky lights and in valley areas.
- It is very common in attic today to find a black substance or possible mold on the sheathing. This is generally caused because the attic is not venting properly.

Types of Insulation
Loose-fill or blown-in insulation is one of the most common types of insulation and works exactly how it sounds. It is blown into a wall cavity or designated space using special equipment. It is very efficient in reducing heating costs.
