One of the most common misconceptions on fixing an attic space, is that adding additional R-value to an attic will solve your energy loss, ice dam, or water intrusion problems. This is FALSE, at Atticus Insulation we have found after years of attic rehabs to fix these problems you must find the source of the conditioned air leaking into your attic space. Air Sealing – is the most important step in this process, finding and closing off all points of air leakage into the attic space. This will ensure that no conditioned air is entering into the attic space. Ventilation – installing proper intake (Process in which air flows through the soffit into the attic space) and exhausting (Process in which air exchanges out roof vents) is also a very important step in developing a functioning and healthy attic space. R-value – additional R-value can then be added to achieve a level R-50 throughout your attic space.
Get total control over the health of your home with our Gold Package. We start by removing all the existing insulation in your attic space until the attic floor is clear of all insulation and animal feces. Then new venitlation and closed-cell polyurethane spray foam insulation is added. We maximize ventilation and coat the entire attic floor with 1.5″ of closed-cell spray foam. Additional R-value is then added with fiberglass insulation to achieve an R-50 rating through-out the home. We perform all this work in a healthy, organized and controlled manner.
Stop ice dams in their tracks. Our Silver Package is specifically designed for clients who have problems with ice dams. We begin by exposing all points of air leakage in the attic, including every wall plate. Then, we maximize ventilation with properly installed air chutes. All points of leaking are coated with closed-cell polyurethane spray foam to ensure an airtight seal. Finally, the attic is re-insulated with additional R-value to achieve an R-50 rating throughout the home. These steps stop air leaks to create a high-performance, energy-efficient home that stays free of ice dams.
