Prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic there was a slight increase in the amount of new residential construction activity in low density markets.

Don’t Get Cold Shoulders: Attic Insulation is a Must for Winter

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Oct 27, 2020 10:24:23 AM

Keep Out Winter’s Cold

Attic insulation helps to keep a home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Most homeowners don’t want to pay to have their HVAC system work overtime to heat and cool the great outdoors, making attic insulation necessary. Some types of insulation are better than others depending on the geographic area and climate, but insulation in general will result in a noticeable difference in any home's interior climate. Insulation works by trapping pockets of air to slow down the movement of heat escaping the house in the winter or entering in the summer. An “R-value” is assigned to all insulation to rate how well it slows the heat transfer. The higher the number, the better.

5 Keys to Better Attic Insulation Application

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Aug 29, 2020 9:15:00 AM

A pneumatic stapler and a handy crew can mean the difference between a passable insulation job and one that will hold for years. Here are a few basic tips that can help maximize the effectiveness of insulation while minimizing the time it takes to install.
