The problem :
The client wanted to change her attic insulation because it was old and it wasn't insulated properly. And when we were doing our inspection, we found many cracks that leaked air from the attic.
The solution :
With the help of our certified attic insulation specialist, we established a plan and found a solution for the client's needs.
We started by removing all the old isolation. We then fixed all the cracks with our Zyp foam in order to air seal which is imperative to do before any insulation work. We then insulated all the attic with our cellulose fiber to get an R60 insulation value.
Now, this client has a better isolated attic with a much higher energy efficiency, which will help them save money and enjoy a more comfortable home.
The attic of Mr Gaudio's house was very poorly insulated. It had about 6 inches of fiberglass as insulation, which is far from sufficient in Quebec. Because of this, he felt some very cold breezes in winter, especially in the rooms of the house and he had noticed that heating costs were getting very high.
We removed or customer's old insulation to properly seal any air leaks on the attic floor. Subsequently, we added our SilverGlo insulation boards on some walls of the attic to finally blow 16 '' of cellulose fibers.

This product is crucial before insulating the attic. If you have recessed lights, these protective boxes prevent air warmed by the light from entering the attic through the cane and wire holes. Hot air impairs insulation in the attic. If air leaks are not sealed properly, you are not taking advantage of the maximum capacity that your insulation can offer you. Hiding the problem under insulation is not the same as fixing it. In addition, the majority of insulation products are not flame retardant. It is dangerous to put insulation directly on recessed lights.
