Attic Insulation

Spray Foam Insulation can be used to insulate your attic space and protect your home from other weather…

Spray Foam Insulation can be used to insulate your attic space in a new modern way that will benefit you and your wallet. When you insulate your attic with foam you will see immediate results in your electric usage and your comfort.

The old way of insulating your attic is now a thing of the past. The old way of insulating with fiberglass, cellulose, or other recycled material, was to create an oven or freezer on top of your house. After you created an oven that can reach up to 150 degrees in the Texas sun you would
stack whatever insulation material you would use as high as you could to provide some type of r value to keep the living area cool. All the while expecting your air conditioner and vents to cool and dehumidify the living area below while working away in the oven above.

The new way of insulating your attic with spray foam makes much more sense. With foam we stop the heat at its source, the roof deck. When you add 5.5 inches of foam to the roof deck you provide a sealed R-value of 19 or higher. The attic stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Most attics that are foamed will only be a few degrees warmer in the summer then the living area below.

As with all things new you will hear a few old timers in the construction business say an attic has to breath. I would like to issue them this challenge. I will go up in a foamed attic on a 100-degree day and breath for two hours for every 10 minutes they sit in their breathing oven attic.
