Family No Longer Cold In Winter—Attic Now Properly Insulated

Location: Roseburg, OR

Challenge:

This Roseburg, OR homeowner’s power bills were through the roof, even though this house was built a few years ago. To add insult to that, they were still cold in their house!

Solution:

After finding our website online, they scheduled an evaluation. Our inspector found many places where there was hardly any insulation. See photo 1—you want at LEAST an R-38 level (which for fiberglass should be 15 inches) yet it was only a few inches in some areas.

Another reason this attic was not keeping the home comfortable is because it was not air-sealed where the leaks were. Our crew started by removing the existing insulation; they then had access to air-seal with ZypFoam (photo 2).

Two different insulating materials were used here: 1) blown-in cellulose insulation (photo 3), and 2) closed-cell spray foam insulation (photo 4).

All these solutions together made for a much more comfortable home for this family.
