Why Install New Insulation?

Attic Insulation Benefits

  • Saves You Money

    Help cut heating and cooling energy bills by up to 20%.
  • Extends Life of Roof

    Ventilation and insulation work in tandem with the roof to prevent attic moisture on decking, ice dams, and premature failure of the life of your roof.
  • Moisture Resistant

    The products we recommend will not absorb moisture because the glass fibers resist dampness that reduce effectiveness.
  • Resists Mold & Fungus

    Inorganic glass fibers resist fungus or mold growth.

The Importance of Proper Attic Insulation

We only use moisture-resistant insulation at Bone Dry Roofing. With our solutions, you can properly ventilate your space while saving money on heating and cooling bills. Attic insulation can even help extend the life of your roof by preventing escaping heat from causing moisture damage to the roof decking. During our insulation process, we minimize our presence and thoroughly clean up when the job is done, leaving you with better efficiency so you will be more comfortable every day. 

What is an Ice Dam?

Ice dams form when an uninsulated (or poorly insulated) attic warms the underside of the roof deck. Snow or ice on the exterior surface melts and runs off, only to refreeze when it reaches the roof’s exposed edge. This can create a solid wall of ice that blocks additional flow. Water can then back up under your roof shingles and into your home, which can result in expensive damage. But a properly insulated and ventilated attic means your roof stays cooler, which helps to slow melting and prevent the formation of ice dams.

ATTIC INSULATION FAQ​

Blown-in insulation is most effective in the attic space of a home. 80% of a home’s efficiency is directly related to what is in the attic.
We install blown-in insulation into wall cavities and attic spaces.
Attic insulation lengthens the life of the roof by preventing warm air entering the attic. Warm air in an attic space is the perfect formula for creating condensation. A wet, condensating attic can damage decking, cause water stains on drywall, and has the potential to grow mold in the attic space.
Installing insulation while installing a new roof is ideal. As such, we won’t need to enter the home to install, as all work can be completed from outside.
90% of homes are either under insulated or insulated incorrectly per the Department of Energy. It is always a good idea to take advantage of our free insulation inspections.
“R” value is the industry standard to rate insulation. “R” stands for resistance to heat flow. The higher the “R” value, the greater the insulating power.
Typical “R” values of blown-in attic insulation are 3.5 per inch with a recommendation of an R-60 in the attic space, or 20” of total insulation. The higher the “R” value, the more insulating power, but also the more insulation needed.
Our insulation inspectors use high quality thermal imaging to determine the amount of insulation in the walls and attic and to inspect for potential air leaks. This allows us to see areas of your home where heat is escaping, giving us all the information needed to solve your insulation problem.
Per the Department of Energy, every inch of insulation added to your home can save you approximately $100 annually on energy bills.
Bone Dry Roofing installs Pro-Cat insulation from Owens Corning. This contractor grade blown-in insulation has a settling rate of less than 1%.
It is not necessary to remove old blown-in insulation before installing new insulation. In some cases, however, if the insulation is wet or soiled (for example, if a raccoon or other pest moved into your attic), it is wise to remove the old, affected insulation.
A typical attic insulation project ranges from 3-6 hours on site.
A cold spot in the home is a signifier that there are areas in the attic that are significantly under insulated. By contacting Bone Dry Roofing, we can inspect your attic space to determine the best course of action for more comfortable living.

Keep cool or warm with the right attic insulation!

There is a difference when you insulate your attic correctly. As much as 40% of your home’s air escapes through the attic. A Bone Dry specialist can evaluate your current insulation level to confirm or suggest if your home could benefit from additional insulation blown into your attic.
