What is the Best Attic Insulation in Buffalo or Rochester?

The attic is a significant source of energy loss in a home, which is why it needs to have the right insulation.

Attic Insulation in Rochester, NY

Town Building Systems has experience working with all different types of attic insulation materials, including:

  • Blown fiberglass  Fiberglass is made of natural ingredients like sand and recycled glass products, which are spun to create small strands of fiberglass. It’s a great choice for noise reduction. Blown fiberglass is installed with a special blowing device.
  • Batt fiberglass Batt fiberglass comes in pre-cut panels, and is one of the most common forms of insulation available.
  • Cellulose Cellulose is made from recycled newsprint and other recycled paper, and it is a durable, cost-effective insulation material.
  • Spray foam (for new construction only) Spray foam is applied wet and expands into thick foam, making it an ideal insulation material for hard-to-reach areas.

Thermal insulation, like fiberglass and cellulose, can be installed in your attic’s flooring, knee walls, etc. Radiant barrier insulation is installed under the roofline, to help your roof reflect heat from the sun and keep your home cooler in the summer. In Western New York, blown-in/loose-fill and batt insulation are an effective attic insulation.

Our home insulation contractors can recommend the ideal type of insulation for your attic and complete your project in a timely manner.

FAQs About Attic Insulation

Can attic insulation prevent frozen gutters?

Ice and gutters don’t get along, but your attic insulation can improve your gutters’ response to frigid weather by encouraging snow to melt evenly. Ice can cause serious structural damage to your home, so you need a permanent solution that will reward you with the progression of the years.

Can I add extra attic insulation over my existing insulation?

Insulation is an accommodating addition to your home as long as you’re building onto dry materials. Wet insulation is less cooperative. It’s prone to mold and mildew, which will spread and destroy your new materials. Fiberglass and cellulose will accept new layers, but faced insulation needs to be treated before coverage or it will trap moisture and foster microbial growth.

What R-value does attic insulation need?

Most attics require an R-value of about 38 in temperate climates. Colder regions like ours need an R-value of about 49.

I want to use my attic for storage. Do I have to insulate it?

One of the most effective ways to insulate your attic is by lining the floors, but that renders your attic unusable. If you’re determined to use the space, you can insulate the underside of the roof instead. Flexible batts can fill up the small spaces between your joists and studs, keeping heat from escaping through your attic.

I feel a draft in my attic, but I can’t find the leaks. How can I fix this?

Air leaks aren’t always obvious, even to the trained eye, but they can reduce the efficacy of your entire insulation system. The sources of chilly air are usually windows, old doors, and patched walls. We can treat all three entry points and raise your R-value by adding a new layer of insulation.

My attic is already insulated. How can I tell if I need more?

R-ratings are an easy way to work out if your current insulation is sufficient. If your material provides less than R-38, you need a new layer. Signs of a poorly insulated attic include drafts, mold, ice dams, and pests. Shoddy insulation will also push up your energy bills and allow drafts into your home.
