At Spraytech Insulation, we strive to resolve your attic insulation needs while maintaining ventilation. Homes with unfinished attics should be well vented with intake and exhaust vents for proper air exchange. Proper ventilation prevents the accumulation of moist air in the attic, which results in moisture and mould issues.
Our Ottawa attic insulation process involves a detailed attic inspection to establish your home’s insulation needs. Our contractors check for signs of poor ventilation, including condensation, rusted nails, and mould, as these could be detrimental to your existing insulation.
We also look for possible leaks, which could be pointed by water stains, mould, and rot. Droppings and nests could also be signs of pest infestation and possible damage to your existing insulation. Moreover, we determine whether your existing insulation meets the required R-Value and whether your home needs new insulation.
We install spray foam insulation on the attic floor of unconditioned attics to act as a heat barrier. Our contractors also install spray foam on the underside of the roof for climate control in conditioned attics. That helps prevent heat radiation through the roof during the summer.
If there are signs of extensive damage to your existing insulation, we recommend removing the old insulation and installing new insulation. Our pro insulation contractors ensure the safe removal of damaged insulation to avoid spreading contaminants in droppings, nests, and mould. Besides safe removal and cleaning, we can rodent-proof your attic to prevent subsequent infestations
