Here you see one of our crew members reinforcing the scuttle cover before insulating the rest of the attic. Our team makes sure that the work we do will fix the entirety of the problem from start to finish, and do extra little steps like fixing the scuttle cover before working around it is just another part of a well done job.
The orange puffy foam on the floor at the bottom of the photo is ZypFoam which is what we use to seal all of the cracks around the attic before it is insulated with the blow-in cellulose insulation.
If your home has recess lighting in the upper level of your home this is what it looks like in the attic. This can light can get very very hot and become a fire hazard if not properly handled. This can also be a source of leakage of conditioned air from the main part of the home.
This is just a close-up shot of what the can light cover looks like.
This is a photo of the same can light, but it is now covered. It is covered with a TiteShell can light cover which is a fireproof form of insulation. You can see the ZypFoam that is insulating this as well, ensuring there will be no leaks.
