Benefits of Clean Attic Insulation in West Seattle

Keep Moisture Out

  • Holes or cracks in an attic allow moisture and water to enter into the structure of your West Seattle home. Mold and mildew thrive in the dim, warm conditions of the attic. The presence of mold and mildew drastically decrease the air quality of your home and causes decay to a home’s structure.
  • Prescriptive air sealing, duct sealing, and the correct choice of insulation can lock out moisture and keep your attic and crawl space dry and toxin free.

Save Money

West Seattle homes that lack proper attic insulation spend more money on their energy bills. Conversely, investing in attic insulation creates an average energy savings of 30% – 80% (depending upon the condition of old insulation), simply because the insulation enables their homes to be more energy efficient. Because of this, the insulation installation pays for itself within months.

Types of Attic Insulation We Install in West Seattle

Spray Foam Attic Insulation

Spray foam insulation is made from two types of composite material: polyurethane, and isocyanate, an organic compound made from tweaking the molecular structure of isomeric cyanic acid. When sprayed out of the tip of the spray foam gun, the substance gradually expands, filling in the cracks and crannies of your crawl space or attic before curing. Spray foam insulation is the most effective material for insulating your West Seattle attic available.

Fiberglass Attic insulation

Fiberglass insulation is usually installed as large segments of insulation that are rolled or laid out onto a surface, such as flooring, ceilings, or in wall cavities. However, blown fiberglass is becoming more and more popular, comprising one of the main insulation jobs we’re asked to do in West Seattle. This type of insulation is made of a mixture of natural sand and recycled glass.

Cellulose Insulaiton

Cellulose insulation is made from recycled paper products, primarily newsprint. It’s recycled material content is very high, generally between 82-85%. The manufacturing process reduces the paper products to very small pieces, which are then fiberized and mixed with a flame and insect retardant, usually mineral borate or ammonium sulfate.

Cotton Attic Insulation

Cotton has become a favorite of the environmentally friendly West Seattle community. Recycled blue jeans have been used in its production, as well as other natural cotton fibers gleaned from industrial scrap. Most cotton insulations consist of 85% recycled cotton and about 15% plastic fibers, which are generally treated with boric acid as a flame retardant. Cotton insulation is non- toxic, and can be installed without respiratory or skin exposure protection.

Denim Attic Insulation

Using recycled jeans, post-industrial denim and cotton, denim insulation is an eco-friendly insulation material for your West Seattle home. Without the itchy fibers that many other types of insulation contain, denim insulation is just as effective as fiberglass and cellulose insulation. While it is more expensive than other types of insulation, if you’re looking for an earth-friendly insulation material, denim insulation is the type of insulation for your home.
