How Does The Process Work?

1) Clean Out Existing Soffit Vents

We clean out the soffit vents in your home to remove debris that may be obstructing airflow into your attic area.

2) Install Polystyrene Air Chutes

We Install Polystyrene Air Chutes between the rafter trusses of your home to allow airflow from the soffit vents into the attic area above the attic insulation to be installed. This air flow keeps your attic area consistent with the outside air temperature which helps you avoid a “HOT” roof that may lead to ice dams.

3) Install R-Value Rulers in Attic Area

We install R-Value Rulers in your attic to allow future inspection of insulation depth without disturbing attic insulation material.

 

4) Build-Up and Insulate Attic Access Panel

We build up the attic access panel in your home to match the level of insulation in the attic area. Construct an extension around the cover to keep loose insulation from falling back into the access upon future opening. We seal the attic access panel to keep warm air from infiltrating into the attic area.
