Why do you need Attic Insulation?
The attic is an area of the roofing system that is often ignored but has an impact on the comfort of your living environment and the life of your roof. Without proper air sealing and balanced ventilation insulation is inefficient and may even cause moisture and mould problems because of the warm, moist air stagnating in the attic. Energy audits recommend a minimum of R50 in the attic. Fiber Glass insulation is a first-rate insulator which fills all crevices and voids and can be blown in over existing insulation. At the proper density Fiber glass does not settle and has a high R-per-inch value. It is fire resistant and protects against fungal growth, insects, rodents and wood rot. Insulation must be blown in from the attic interior to ensure that all crevices are filled and the insulation attains the right density.
