Here are a few of our attic services that set us apart from other attic insulation companies.
A step that is often skipped in attic insulation is sealing any air leaks in the ceiling that lead to the attic. Any gaps or penetrations from the ceiling to the attic allow conditioned air from the home to leak into the attic. Sealing air leaks prevents conditioned air from escaping into unlivable space.
Another attic service we offer is encapsulating duct work in the attic. Ducts in the attic have seams and joints that leak conditioned air into the attic, and they are not insulated well. Encapsulating air ducts makes the attic more energy efficient.
Old attic insulation, especially old fiberglass batting, is not safe and is not energy efficient. Old attic insulation is typically filled with dust, rodent droppings, and many other contaminants that reduce the air quality in the home and make the insulation inefficient. As a part of our attic services, we remove the old insulation and replace it with blown in cellulose insulation. Cellulose insulation is much more energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and has a Class-1 Fire Safety Rating.
If you live in an area that is hot, like the DFW and surrounding areas, it is important to install radiant barriers in the attic. When the hot sun beats down on the roof, the attic can hover around 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Installing radiant barriers will cool the attic as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Radiant barriers, along with the other attic insulation services, will make your home much more comfortable and energy efficient.
If you are in the DFW and surrounding area and your attic needs fixed, we will send a specialist to your home for a FREE, no obligation estimate. Just call 1-844-810-7398, or click here: https://www.olympicrestoration.com/free-estimate.html
