Depending on the age and style of your house, Above All Insulation can upgrade the insulation in your attic, basement or crawl space, and exterior walls of your house.
We insulate all types of houses, including the more complicated 1 ½ and 2 ½ storey attics with knee wall areas. The goal is to insulate horizontal areas of the attic to R-50, which is the current code requirement in Manitoba for new homes. We pay attention to the importance of vapour sealing and ventilation to reduce water damage due to condensation. A common solution for older houses is for us to remove your existing insulation then install 2″ of polyurethane spray foam insulation for a continuous vapour seal of your attic floor. Cellulose insulation would then be installed over the spray foam to bring the total R-value to R-50 with a perfect vapour seal.
In most cases, our insulators are able to do all the attic work through vent holes cut in strategic locations in the roof. These will be covered over with new roof vents when the job is completed.
