What Should Homeowners Know About Insulation Contractor Services?

Before an insulation contractor commits to your home insulation services project, it’s likely that they will want to get a better understanding of your home’s building envelope.  Many times, when homeowners observe drafts in their home during the winter months, they assume it’s the outside air making its way in.  In fact, it is often air that’s being pulled down the walls from a home’s attic due to the stack effect.  This can create a health hazard if the attic has previously had animals, such as mice, bats, and squirrels living in it.  The same holds true if mold is present in the attic.

What Does An Insulation Contractor Do When They Visit Your Home For The First Time?

Home insulation services typically perform an inspection of your attic to verify its R-value and analyze its vapor barrier.  Insulation contractor services also need to understand the attic ventilation systems in place to determine if upgrades are needed.  Many homeowners are surprised to learn that an insulation contractor will also want to visit a home’s basement to see how the rim is impacting the airflow within the house.  Once this data has been collected, insulation contractor services can put together a list of their recommendations for energy efficient home improvements.

How Do You Know If An Insulation Contractor Is Trustworthy?

Before committing to insulation contractor services, it’s important to check their references.  This can give a homeowner peace of mind because they can get a better understanding of if the home insulation services were able to improve home energy efficiency.  It’s also important to understand if the insulation contractor stuck to the original time and budget.

Should Roof Replacement Occur At The Same Time As Home Insulation Services?

Many times, roof installation and home insulation services take place at the same time. That’s because proper levels of attic insulation will ensure that a roof reaches the maximum possible lifespan.

What Type Of Roof Replacement Is The Best?

Homeowners needing new roof installation should consider Class 4 impact-resistant shingles.  This type of roof replacement uses shingles that are resistant to hail damage.  In addition, the shingles are often eligible for insurance discounts.  They are an environmentally friendly choice because of their longevity.

"My wife and I are so thrilled about the new roof shingles you installed on our home. They are absolutely gorgeous and could not possibly look any more amazing than they are.  The LeafGuard® team also did an outstandingly professional job installing the gutter system and had a couple of recommendations on a gutter and downspout placement that really functions well AND makes the house look astounding."
