Many homes in the U.S. are under-insulated, and this includes many older homes in the Louisville area. Lack of attic insulation can be detrimental to a home in many ways, including reduced energy efficiency and potential moisture damage. At Bone Dry Roofing Louisville, we can help you select the right type and level of insulation needed to keep your interior comfortable all year round.

DRIVE DOWN ENERGY COSTS AND STAY COMFORTABLE WITH ATTIC INSULATION IN LOUISVILLE

A drafty, chilly home isn’t comfortable, but neither is paying an arm and a leg to heat and cool your home. When your home’s attic is drafty, you are actually losing a large portion of the energy you are paying for, watching it escape right through the cracks. The Louisville Kentucky roofing experts at Bone Dry Roofing offer top quality attic insulation services, helping you to keep energy costs low and to maintain a comfortable home year ‘round.

Each month you pay utility bills for heating or cooling. Where does the energy that you pay for go? Without proper insulation, much of it is lost. According to the National Society of Heating and Ventilation Engineers, 44% of energy loss occurs through walls and ceilings. One way to reduce energy loss is by properly insulating your attic. The insulation experts at Bone Dry Roofing Louisville KY can help with highly efficient, highly effective insulation solutions that work to stop energy loss and keep you more comfortable while reducing your monthly energy expenditures.

What’s 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.

A properly insulated and ventilated attic means your roof stays cooler, which helps to slow melting and prevent the formation of ice dams!

Year ‘Round Comfort

During the summer the process is reversed. Hot air trapped in your attic is prevented from seeping down into your nice, cool living space by a blanket of insulation. This takes some of the burden off of your air conditioning system, helping it to run more efficiently which, in turn, keeps your energy costs down during the hot summer months here in Louisville. 

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.
