Frequently asked questions
Insulation keeps cool air during summer and warm air during winter within your home. At least 25 percent of heat loss in a home is through under-insulated attic areas. This means poor or inadequate insulation, resulting in air leakage and wasted energy.

Insulating your roof reduces the transfer of heat out or into houses. Less cold air leaves your homes during hotter seasons and cold air in warmer seasons.
This makes your heating and cooling system work less, reducing the amount of energy you use. So if your energy bills start going up because you need to turn your air-conditioning or heater higher, maybe it’s time to have your roof insulation checked.
While it doesn’t affect your house’s appeal, having proper insulation still increases your home value. A study made by Remodeler Magazine in 2017 shows 107.7% recouped cost for attic insulation.
Adding insulation better protects you from external conditions, and that brings in more value into your home.
