This image captures what we walked into in the beginning of the project! The next step will be removing the originial and low performing insulation.
Here we are looking at rolled out pink fluffy stuff which is what the original insulation looked like. We will remove this and install a blow-in cellulose insulation.
Here you can see what the attic looks like after we were out with the old and ready to be in with the new!
The orange rectangle on the floor is ZypFoam. ZypFoam is the insulation we use to seal every crack and potential point of leakage before using the blow-in thermal insulation.
What we are looking at here is a TiteShell Can Light Cover. This inflammable recessive light cover will keep your home safe and comfortable.
If you look past the orange ZypFoam, you will see thick shiny blocks of SilverGlo. SilverGlo is yet another type of insulation used along the process.
What you are looking at in this shot is the air baffles that are covering the holes that we once lining the floor here.
A special aspect of this attic is the holes you can see forming a line where the roof and the floor meet. It is crucial that before we blow-in the TruSoft Cellulose Insulation that we seal up these holes. We will cover them with Air Baffles which is the black plastic you will see in the next photo.
The primary thermal insulator we use in attic insulation is TruSoft. TruSoft is a state of the art blow-in cellulose insulation that's high performance technology is patent protected.
