Attic Insulation

Attic Insulation Near Eau Claire

Fiberglass Insulation being used to add energy efficiency to an attic in Maple Grove

Blow-in or blown fiberglass insulation is a good choice when insulating your attic. A special machine shreds the fiberglass and then blows it through an application hose to properly cover and insulate the space. DBS can install blown cellulose, blown fiberglass, fiberglass batts or denim batts for different applications.

Upgrading attic insulation is a VERY popular energy-saving improvement because more energy (and money!) is lost through the attic than through any other part of the house.

What makes matters worse is improperly or poorly installing inadequate attic insulation. Existing attic insulation in many homes may be as minimal as R-19 -- which pales in comparison to the recommended R-value!

Going through a cold winter with so little insulation is like wearing a t-shirt in a snowstorm. What your house really needs is the equivalent of a thick down-filled parka.

The U.S. Department of Energy recommends between R-49 and R-60 of attic insulation in Maple Grove, Minneapolis, Eau Claire, Saint Cloud, Eden Prairie, and other areas closeby. That's at least a 16-in.-thick blanket of fiberglass insulation!

Importance of Air Sealing and Insulating Attics

Larry Janesky explains that insulation is also needed in warmer areas. Insulation prevents heat transfer. It prevents hot air from being transferred to the outside in the wintertime, and prevents the attic's scorching heat from being transferred into the living areas of your home during the summer.

New Insulation installed in Eau Claire attic

Baffles keep ventilation channels open. Plastic spacers are installed between rafters in the attic to maintain a vent space beneath the roof surface after new insulation is installed.

              I am very happy with DBS & their communication throughout the process of insulating my basement & attic. Cody went above expectation by looking closely at the design of my 87 year old home, adjusted the original plan and explained in detail how the changes would give the house better coverage, all this with no extra cost to me. The crew was very professional, courteous & left my house clean.

    Customer Testimonial

              Nick and the crew did a great job! They were very careful to notify me of where they were with each part of the process and took many pictures to keep me updated. Nick also let me know when there were going to be extra fumes from the mitigation process and suggestions as to when to leave and return to the house as I am very sensitive to dust and odors. They cleaned up all the work areas including the outside every workday. I was very impressed and highly recommend them. Henry was very thorough and informative during the initial investigation and job recommendation.

              Nick and his crew did a very nice job on our insulation project. His daily communication was excellent. He let me know when he was leaving the office to begin and also let me know at the end of the day when they were complete along with pictures of work completed for the day. He was quick to communicate any issues along with solutions and photos. They put in three full days of work and never left for another project. They did a great job on clean up at the end of the project. Nick took pride in his work as was evident when we went through the project at completion. Well Done!

    Carole C. of Babbit, MN

    Customer Testimonial

              I can’t say enough nice things. They’re wonderful. These guys were just superb. They did one section under the house in very rustic conditions. They wrapped the whole underneath of the crawlspace and they did a fantastic job. My son wanted to see what they did and he said they did a wonderful job. The work they did inside was above and beyond what I expected. Tony was wonderful- he is coming back up to fix a storm door for me that another guy was doing before he disappeared over hunting season and hasn’t returned. They guys were very helpful in stopping to look at it and offer suggestions. You will be the first people I call if I need anything done.

Air sealing is a critical step when insulating an attic because sealing air leaks stops conditioned interior air from leaking into the attic. We use a variety of materials and techniques to stop this energy-wasting air leakage.

Mold in the attic could indicate that too much conditioned air from your living space is leaking into the attic. This causes your HVAC system to use more energy than necessary and can affect the air quality in your home. Our experts can air seal any leaks to prevent attic mold and improve comfort and energy efficiency.

We install a variety of insulation materials for the attic and the whole house, including spray foam insulation, cellulose, blown-in insulation as well as radiant barrier, rigid foam insulation and more.

We also offer a unique system called the SuperAttic™ System, which adds a continuous & airtight layer of foam insulation beneath the attic rafters and inside the attic's gable walls.

Installing baffles ensures proper attic ventilation. Sized to fit between the rafters in the attic, plastic baffles maintain a ventilation space between the attic's soffit vents (located along the eaves) and the ridge vent. Installing baffles before adding more attic insulation helps avoid damage from ice damming and excess moisture.

Old insulation can be reused, most of the time. As long as the existing insulation is not wet, moldy or overly compressed, it can usually be put back into place after the attic has been air sealed and before new insulation is installed.

In addition to attic insulation installation, DBS offers a wide range of insulation services and our team of experts can help you choose the best insulation for your attic or any part of your home. Our energy assessment can help determine where your home is losing energy and where more insulation and air sealing is needed.
