Expert Attic Insulation Installation By Stay Dry Roofing
Does your home have drafty areas or temps that are uneven from one room to another? Are your heating and cooling costs too high? During winter, do ice dams form on you roof, upping your risk of expensive roof repair? It may be time to upgrade your attic insulation.
Stay Dry Roofing is a family owned business that serves the Greater Indianapolis area and the surrounding suburbs such as Carmel, Zionsville, and Fishers. We understand the insulation installation needs of our area to ensure optimal heating and cooling savings and comfort in every season.
Stay Dry Roofing has experts in blown-in insulation, widely considered the best type of attic insulation. There is very little difference in cost between blown insulation and traditional rolled insulation, and blown-in insulation more thoroughly fills gaps, seams and crannies. The thickness of the insulation installation can be customized to guarantee the desired R-value for your home.
R-value is the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. When you increase the R-value of your attic insulation, you home may be qualified for a tax rebate of as much as $1500. In Indiana, the building code requires an R value of R38 for insulation installation. The Federal Department of Energy recommends R60.
How To Know When You Should Upgrade Your Attic Insulation
It’s easy to forget about the attic once a house has been built and the attic’s initial insulation installation has been done. But when an attic is poorly insulated, the insulation has settled or compacted, mold or mildew is growing due to water leaks, or the insulation is outdated and decayed, it’s time to update and upgrade.
40% of a home’s conditioned air will escape through a poorly insulated attic. That’s a big impact on heating and cooling bills. Proper attic insulation can save as much at 20% in heating and cooling. And good insulation works with your roof’s ventilation system to prevent the cycle of snow melt-and-freeze that leads to ice dams on your roof in winter, which can cause the lifespan of your roof to shorten.
We at Stay Dry Roofing install Owens Corning blown-in attic insulation. This glass fiber material is moisture resistant, fungus and mold resistance and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Owens Corning AttiCat Expanding Blown-In PINK Fiberglas Insulation uses a network of minute air pockets between the tangled strands of Fiberglas. It’s the air pockets that trap rising heat, minimizing heat loss during the cold months and heat gain during the hot ones.
The insulation installation is fast and easy. From start to finish, installation will be done in four hours or less, with the insulation targeted exactly where you need it. With no muss or fuss, the Owens Corning Fiberglas™ insulation is released to expand entirely inside the machine. That means easy clean-up. And it’s known for its safety and reliability. The process is optimized for minimized handling, the system if fully enclosed with a remote controlled that is mounted on the hose.
