UPGRADE YOUR ATTIC SPACE WITH BLOWN-IN INSULATION
Foametix Insulation uses Johns Manville’s Climate Pro lightweight premium fibreglass insulation for attic insulation upgrades. This virgin blow-in loose-fill insulation product is far superior to cellulose, providing effective and resilient thermal protection.
Using our high-volume equipment, Foametix can install Climate Pro into attics and other hard-to-reach spaces like corners, edges, and framings. Unlike cellulose, it won’t settle over time or lose its R-value after installation. It will continue to offer maximum thermal efficiency for years to come. Our installation procedure is efficient and clean, offering complete coverage even in tight spaces with nooks and crannies! Please call/text or email us to book an appointment for a free attic inspection!
Efficiency Manitoba rebates and loans are also available!
More Advantages of Climate Pro Fibreglass Insulation:
This insulation product is 100% formaldehyde-free.
It creates a great sound barrier between floors and ceilings.
It’s non-combustible, rodent and pest resistant.
It’s non-corrosive, so it won’t cause corrosion of pipes, wiring or metal studs.
Climate Pro will never rot, smell, or grow mildew/mould because it doesn’t hold moisture like cellulose.
INSULATING ATTIC FLOOR
Warm air rises and so do your utility bills all winter long. If you notice any frost on the shingle nails poking through your attic roof deck or see frost on the underside of your roof, you are losing big money! Natural updraft will cause any hole or cut in a ceiling vapour barrier to allow air to be sucked out of your home and into the attic like a chimney. Even several small holes (such as light receptacles, wiring holes, and drywall screws) can add up to tremendous air loss.
Attic insulation installation with our insulating spray foam is a beneficial procedure that can prevent this air loss. Spraying the floor minimizes the surface area you spray, minimizes the amount of foam needed, and minimizes your utilities because you’re only heating and cooling the area you live in. In other words, you’re not paying to heat and cool the additional square footage in your attic that you don’t use.
If you have existing attic insulation, our spray foam installer will commence with insulation removal and then apply 2-3 inches of closed-cell attic spray foam insulation. This attic insulation installation creates a seamless air barrier that makes your other insulation work MUCH better. Plus, the total air/moisture seal and high R-value offered by Foametix polyurethane spray foam insulation help retain the energy inside your living space where you have paid to keep it, saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars annually in utility bills by insulating the attic.
Attic insulation installation with Foametix spray foam insulation is a great solution for any home but especially for older homes lacking a correct ceiling vapour barrier or those homes with recessed lighting fixtures.
INSULATING ATTIC RAFTERS
If you’re using the attic for living space or have a vaulted ceiling, then you’d want to use insulating spray foam on the underside of the roof for the attic insulating the attic. Older 1 ½ and 1 ¾ story houses commonly have this type of roof and were usually not insulated in the ceiling or were insulated with a loose fill product that has long since settled to the bottom away from where it needs to be. These types of roofs in older homes were commonly lacking a vapour barrier of any kind!
During the application of attic insulation installation, the drywall or plaster of the ceiling needs to be completely removed in order to spray the foam into the cavity. A less disruptive method is to remove the roof decking when shingling, which usually is required anyways on homes older than 1965. We would then commence with insulation removal that is left in the cavities and then spray down into the cavity prior to resheeting and shingling.
Finally, with attic insulation installation using polyurethane spray foam insulation, you’re sealing off the attic fully to make it unvented. You’ll want to reroute anything that needs to be vented outside, like a kitchen or bath exhaust fan that dumps into the attic. If space permits, adding fibreglass or Roxul batting after the foam cures will raise your R-value even more while protecting these products from their usual moisture issues.
