Insulation Services Photo Album: Attic Insulation in Rumson, NJ
These customers in Rumson, NJ had a mouse issue in the attic of their house. The animals had been inhabiting their attic and been using the old fiberglass insulation as their personal bathroom! After destroying the attic, they had the mice removed by an exterminator, then called on The Home Comfort & Energy Experts to come and insulate their attic the right way! After a complete cleanout of the old and nasty insulation, we were able to start with a clean and fresh palette. Now after a full cleanout, air sealing and insulating the attic went smoothly and allowed for a full 16" of cellulose to be blown across the whole attic. Meaning the home will now be operating as efficiently as possible and protecting the occupants from the extreme winter temperatures. The best part about using cellulose for these customers was the fact that the cellulose will now deter(but won't kill) any other rodents or insects, protecting the whole house and not causing them to die and decompose in the insulation! We also took care of the home's leaking duct system, which is now completely encapsulated by 2" silverglo board and sealed with spray foam!
Picture shows the newly reinsulated attic and duct system.
Open Hatch Cover
The new stair cover provides a highly insulated seal over the attic stairs, which are usually the leakiest point of the attic.
Closed Hatch Cover
Shows the now closed cover as Dave himself inspects how well it fits in place.
Insulated Attic Flat
Rest of attic is covered completely with 16" of cellulose insulation after it is fully air sealed underneath.
Covers every square inch of the attic now at a full depth of 16".
Now the attic has a clearly defined decked area to store things on and walk freely to inspect attic or roof.
