Mrs. Eaves had problems with ice damming on the roof of her house in winter. So she contacted Systèmes Éconergie to re-insulate her attic.
In the attic of her house, there were only 10 inches of fiberglass insulation, which was far from enough. We removed the old insulation, sealed all the air leaks present on the attic floor with our expanded polyurethane foam, and then blew a little more than 16 in of cellulose fibers to achieve an R-60 value.
Mrs. Barnes bought a new house in Longueuil and following our inspection she had to re-insulate the attic to improve the ventilation and the effectiveness of the insulation. The lack of ventilation caused a lot of humidity in the attic which created mold on the wood and led it to get rotten.
- Seal all air leaks in the attic. With our expanded polyurethane foam, we seal the joints and holes on the floor in order to eliminate air leaks.
- Seal and insulate recessed lights with boxes.
- Add vents to allow controlled ventilation in the attic and prevent air from coming into contact with the insulation.
- Blow a little over 16” of cellulose fibers. Highly effective, safe, and environmentally friendly insulation!
