One of the easiest places to insulate in a home – whether new or existing construction – is the attic. Accessing the attic is much simpler than trying to add or replace insulation materials inside inner walls, floors and ceilings.
In most cases, blown-in insulation is used to improve insulation in the attics of existing homes. Attic insulation is generally blown-in over top of any existing insulation as a means of improving thermal management and increasing the overall R-value of the home. In new residential construction, fiberglass rolls, blown cellulose insulation or spray foam insulation can be used.
Richie’s Insulation provides insulation services for attics in new and existing residential structures. Before installing insulation in an attic, we recommend sealing air leaks that can occur around joints and seams, openings to attic access throughout the home, utility penetrations, skylights and recessed can lights, chimneys near exterior walls and anywhere else air might leak through.
