Frequently we observe that ventilation, especially in attics, has been obstructed. Your goal should be to have a well-functioning ventilation and insulation system in your home or building.

Attic Insulation in Tigard
One of the most important spots of your home or building to insulate properly is your attic. Insulating an attic correctly will keep hot air from leaking into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent warm air from living spaces escaping into an unheated attic in the wintertime. Air movement such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a big area, it is generally one of the first areas where we improve 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 right type of insulation will reduce moisture and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation in between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will make sure that your floors are not chilly and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray foam insulation also helps with insect and rodent control in underground spaces such as basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Tigard, OR
The kind of insulation we suggest depends on the degree of protection and comfort you need for your home or building. We install 4 different types of insulation: spray foam, cellulose, blown-in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation to shut out air and insulate simultaneously. It is a chemical substance that expands to fill every void and is water resistant and insect resistant. There are 2 kinds, closed cell and open cell.
Blow in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is manufactured from recycled products. It is used in attics and wall spaces and is resistant to pests and mold and mildew. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is blown-in fiberglass shreds and has comparable applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal answer. It is a long lasting insulating choice and is mostly installed in unfinished areas of a house or commercial buildings.
Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their wall cavities. In time, batts and loose fill insulation can sag or become soaked and will lose insulating ability. We can easily use various insulation materials to correct this problem including injection foam, blown fiberglass and spray foam. The type of insulation material we recommend will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the outdoors.
Tigard Garage Insulation.
One of the many locations where insulation can enhance the comfort of living areas is the garage. Builders overlook insulating a garage adequately to save money on building costs. Energy loss from an inadequately insulated garage can stem from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the home into the garage. To improve your home’s comfort and efficiency, phone us to help you upgrade your garage insulation.
Uninsulated ducts in the basement, crawl space or attic is a reason for lost energy and wasted money. We can insulate your duct work with foil blankets, spray foam or burying attic ducts with blow in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your ducts will ensure that you are not losing heat in the wintertime and air-conditioned air in the summer and making your hvac system work much harder than it needs to.
