Insulation

Insulation is one of the most essential part of a home. Regardless of the climate that we live, a proper combination of insulation with ventilations helps to control and stabilize the temperature inside your home so it won’t get too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter. Insulation can also help to lower your gas and electricity bills.

Attic Insulation

A very important source of heat loss from a house is through roof or attic. Roof insulation is needed to reduce the overall heat transfer coefficient by adding materials with low thermal conductivity. Roof and attic insulation is an important factor to achieve thermal comfort for its occupants by reducing unwanted heat loss and heat gain. In this way they significantly decrease the energy demands of the heating and cooling systems.

More than 90 % of hoses in North America lack adequate attic insulation and house insulation. Most of the homes in Canada lack adequate insulation which cost homeowners spend more money on energy bills to keep their homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. With proper insulation, they can save money and be more efficient with your energy — and that can be started by proper insulating the attic.

If your attic is not insulated, we can help you start from scratch. If your attic just needs a top up for maximum efficiency, we can help you there as well.

Things to Remember Before Starting

  • Always ensure that your installation is very clear as well as accessible as possible. You should be able to move around easily and access all required areas. You will also need something sturdy to walk or stand on such as a plank or sheet of plywood.
  • You will need some basic tools to help you complete your project. Having a hammer, putty knife, caulking gun, tape measure, straight edge, utility knife, a lightweight stapler and a pole or rake (for your hard to reach places) will help make this job very easy
  • Always remember that when you open a package of batting, it gets expanded significantly, so always try not to open it outside of your project area.

Basement Insulation

Basement has a challenging insulation problem because of high moisture levels and cooler temperatures. The key is to insulation is select insulating materials that prevent movement and mold growth

Garage Insulation

The fluctuations of temperature in your garage could potentially damage items you store in the garage. Plus, it increases the risks of certain hazards, like storing spray paint, gasoline, and other chemicals at extreme hot or cold temperatures. Insulated garage doors not only help to maintain temperatures in the garage but also can add to the curb appeal and value of your home.

Materials and Methods for Insulation

Spray Foam: Spray foam is probably the best possible insulating material for basements and damp areas.

Foam Board: The key to using foam board is to choose the correct thickness and sealing it properly to create an effective vapor barrier.

Fiberglass Insulation: Another method is hybrid system of foam board and fiberglass. This method is the least expensive yet it will perform well in basements that don’t have visual signs of water infiltration.
