R-Value Attic Insulation
To start off, understand what R-value is suggested for your home based on your location. You can get this information from the Department of Energy. If you aren’t familiar with R-value, it’s primarily an insulating material’s resistance to heat flow, measured by its thermal resistance or R-value. The higher the R-value, the more efficient an insulating material is. Your home’s R-value score will lead you toward the type of insulation you need.
At Everlast Roof Systems Inc., we will provide you with expert guidance on what your attic needs. A great attic requires a minimum of R-50 value insulation.
We use cellulose as our primary blown-in attic insulator because it has several benefits like :
- Operates a high-density rate and R-Value (almost 1/3 higher than fiberglass)
- Lower health risk as compared to fiberglass (through inhalation)
- Environment friendly (made of recycled paper and cardboard)
- Fills all of the small crevices in the attic to secure a proper air seal.
