Elbert Construction would be happy to add insulation to your attic while your roof is getting replaced. In this simple process, our roogers pull off a sheet of plywood and go in from the top. By doing this, we allow our homeowners more privacy but not having to go through the house, plus it creates less of a mess!
At Elbert Construction, all our our roofing experts have been properly trained to use the Atticat system by Owens Corning to ensure that that insulation is installed correctly. This is very important, because insulation in your home provides resistance to heat flow. The more heat flow resistance your insulation provides, the lower your heating and cooling costs.
How Insulation WorksNaturally, heat flows from a warmer to a cooler space. So in the winter and colder seasons, heat flow moves directly from all heated living spaces to adjacent unheated attics, garages, basements, and even to the outdoors. Heat flow can also move indirectly through interior ceilings, walls, and floors.
The insulation that is installed in your home provides resistance to that heat flow. The more heat flow resistance your insulation provides, the less the heat will travel to colder areas in your home.
An insulation's resistance to heat flow is measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value.
