Attic Insulation in Durham
One of the most important spots of your home or building to insulate thoroughly is your attic. Insulating an attic the right way will keep heated air from seeping into the living areas in the summertime. It will also prevent warm air from living spaces seeping into an unheated attic in the cold months. Air flow such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a huge area, it is typically one of the first spaces where we boost the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also benefit because your hvac system will not need to work as hard and will last longer.
Insulating a Basement or Crawl Space
The basement and crawl space are two areas that should be checked for ample insulation. The ideal kind of insulation will minimize dampness and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will ensure that your floors are not freezing and there are no cool spots in your living areas. You will also discover that spray foam insulation also can help with insect and rodent control in below grade spaces like basements.
Varieties Of Insulation Available in Durham, NC
The type of insulation we suggest depends on the level of coverage and comfort you prefer for your home or building. We install four different types of insulation: spray insulation, cellulose, blow-in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation to shut out air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical material that spreads out to fill every gap and is water-proof and pest resistant. There are 2 varieties, closed cell and open cell.
Blown cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled products. It is used in attics and wall spaces and is resistant to pests and mold. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is blow-in fiberglass shreds and has similar applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basements and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal answer. It is a long lasting insulating option and is primarily installed in unfinished areas of the home or commercial buildings.
Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their wall spaces. In time, batts and loose-fill insulation can droop or get soaked and will lose insulating ability. We can easily use various insulation materials to remedy this issue including injection foam, blown fiberglass and spray foam. The type of insulation product we recommend will depend on how accessible the walls are from the exterior.
Durham Garage Insulation.
One of the many locations where insulation can enhance the comfort of living areas is the garage. Builders often neglect insulating a garage properly to save on building costs. Energy loss from a poorly insulated garage can originate from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the home to the garage. To improve your home’s comfort and efficiency, call us to help you upgrade your garage insulation.
