  • Heat and hydro through energy savings.
  • Equipment maintenance through less usage.
  • Roof repairs through ice dam and leak prevention.
Significantly improves household energy efficiency

What Kind of Insulation Should You Use?

Attics should be insulated using blown-in (or “loose-fill”) materials, such as fiberglass or cellulose.

Using special equipment, Weaver Attics “blows in” the insulation, in the thickness your home requires, to achieve the optimal R-Value.

Benefits of Fiberglass
Fiberglass insulation is made from extremely fine glass fibers, which provides greater insulating properties than cellulose.
Problems With Cellulose
Densely packed cellulose can spread throughout your home, posing respiratory problems.
If cellulose isn’t installed correctly, your home will be vulnerable to air movement.
Problems With Spray Foam
Spray foam is usually installed in too thin of a layer to create an effective air barrier.
Spray foam insulation usually isn’t installed properly, causing bad odors, and lack of adhesion.

How Much Insulation Do You Need?

  • R-Value measures how well certain building insulation materials, such as foam insulation, can resist heat. The higher the R-Value, the greater the performance of the insulation.
  • Ensuring your insulated spaces have the correct R-Value depends on where you live and where it will be in your home. Colder areas require more insulation.
