Are your energy bills getting more and more expensive, no matter the season? While most of us immediately think that drafts around our doors and windows are the culprit, one item that’s usually not considered by Nashville homeowners is attic insulation. Poorly insulated attics are one of the main reasons for reduced energy efficiency. Professionals can determine whether you have adequate insulation in your home. Talk to the experts at Bone Dry Roofing today.

Do You Need Insulation?

Won’t attic insulation make my nashville property hotter?

There’s no denying that it can get hot in Nashville. This is why attic insulation is so important. While you may think that “insulation” means “heat”, it actually works the opposite way. Adding attic insulation can make your home cooler because it reduces your home’s overall heat gain by decreasing the energy entering from the attic. This also means less strain on your AC during the summer months.

If you’re unsure whether your home has enough insulation, Bone Dry Roofing is a local roofing contractor with over 30 years of experience. We treat our customers like family. We’ll do an inspection and determine your insulation needs. Schedule a free estimate by calling us or filling out our convenient online form.

Benefits of New Insulation

  • 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.

Better comfort all year long

The money you spend to heat your home in cold temperatures can escape through your ceilings and be dissipated in under-insulated attic space. Bone Dry Roofing’s insulation creates a high R-value thermal barrier that traps heat, keeping your home warmer and balances the temperature difference between your roof and attic. Keeping your roof cooler can help prevent ice dams and greatly extend the life of roofing materials.

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. So, your air conditioning system runs more efficiently and keeps you comfortable at a reduced energy cost.

Stay comfortable year ‘round with top quality attic insulation in nashville

Is your home cold and drafty? It may be that your insulation is not doing its part to keep your home comfortable. We can help! Bone Dry Roofing is the roofing companies Nashville TN homeowners also trust for the proper installation of attic insulation. We have helped hundreds of Nashville neighbors enjoy a more comfortable, more energy efficient home.

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. Bone Dry Roofing 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. 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.
