According to the U.S.Department of Energy and Energy Star, sealing and insulating the "envelope" or "shell" of your home - it's outer walls, ceilings, windows, doors and floors - is often the most effective way to make your home more energy efficient and comfortable.
In addition to helping you reduce your homes energy consumption, adding insulation is sustainable in other ways. The majority of what we do is retrofitting (older house/new insulation) attics, walls, and floors with new insulation. Most houses built before 1975 were built with very little or even no attic insulation; the overwhelming majority were built with no wall or floor insulation. We can fix that!
Insulating an attic. Most attics already have some insulation -- in 99% of situations we recommend insulating directly over the insulation that's already there. In other words, the glass is partially full and we are just topping it off.
Insulating an attic. Special care must be given to vents, canned lights, wiring, and other items in the attic. Professional service is a must!
Insulating a side wall. We check the wall to find every stud bay -- most houses have more going on than just a simple 16"-wide space between studs. Unfilled bays will result in a gap: heat/cool (and money) will escape!Insulating a side wall. Every bay gets filled to capacity -- no loose-filled or underfilled areas. See FAQs for specific questions regarding this.Texture matching (not shown: paint matching, tex cote matching, color coat matching, raw stucco matching, wood or siding matching -- we can do it all!) Our commitment: you shouldn't be able to tell we were ever there!
