How is Cellulose Insulation Added into Attics? - Prepping the attic

The attic is prepped before the cellulose is used.

Attic insulation is the hat that keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  It’s more than just a cost per square foot.  The attic needs to be properly prepared before the insulation can be blown-in.

Detailing light fixtures, wire penetrations, pipe chases, stairwell openings, open interior soffits, access hatches, pull down stairs, bath vents, kitchen vents and proper passive ventilation all need to be addressed prior to adding cellulose insulation or your efforts and expense may be wasted.  We’ve actually had to remove 30+ inches of blown in fiberglass from an attic in order to create space to work and find the items in need of air sealing.

Cellulose insulation is an extremely cost effective way to update your home’s insulation to today’s building code standards.  The average attic typically falls in the range of $1,500 – $2,500.  Every home is unique.  We’ll be sure to take care of all of your home’s needs so please contact us for your FREE no obligation evaluation.
