KEEPING YOUR ATTIC AND ROOF COZY
We’ve been up in more than 20,000 attics, and what we’ve found is that a lot of them don’t hit the mark for keeping energy costs down. To really get those bills to a minimum, your attic’s got to have something like 14 to 16 inches of cellulose insulation. But you’d be surprised how many homes are hanging out at around 5 inches, which is way less than the R-60 value the Ontario Building Code talks about.
The stuff we use for insulation is cellulose, and it’s got a made-in-Canada tag on it. What’s cool about it is that it’s made mostly from recycled newspapers, so it’s a thumbs-up for the environment. We’re talking 80% recycled material, plus it’s got a special treatment to keep bugs and critters at bay. Homeowners who have switched to this insulation have seen the change and have been giving us a shout for help!
Our process is pretty straightforward: when we tackle a blown-in attic insulation job, our pros take a good look at your place to see if this is the right route for you and figure out what R-value will meet your needs.
