In a time where we are all striving to be as energy efficient as possible, quality insulation is one of the best ways to decrease your energy bills. Our goal at Sunshine Contracting is to make your home as thermally efficient as possible. A very important factor in the installation of attic insulation is the R-Value – this is the resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the better protected your home is from the change in climate. Virginia is considered to be a Zone 4 Climate – the recommended R-Value for Virginia is between R38-R60.
You have many options when it comes to insulation, but one type stands out – blow-in insulation. Blown-in insulation means that the insulation material is blown or sprayed into the attic. Sunshine Contracting uses the Guardian Fiberglass Blown-In Insulation. This process and particular product have many advantages.
Blown-in insulation’s main advantage is the fact that it can be much more efficient than the alternatives. It can create seamless blankets without any real imperfections – that is something that is hardly achievable with batt insulation. And since you can also choose from various materials, the insulation can be customized according to specific needs or wishes. Finally, blown-in insulation is more flexible than other types of insulation, so it can be used in diverse situations.
When you call our office, we will schedule a time for a free in-home consultation. One of the members of our Sunshine Contracting team will come out to your home to meet with you. Among the things we will do while at your home is evaluate the state of your current attic insulation by getting in your attic. We will speak with you to get an understanding of what your goals, wants, and needs are with regards to your insulation and work together to come up with a plan that will help you achieve that.
When you decide to move forward with Sunshine Contracting for your attic insulation needs, both our Operations Manager and our Installation Manager will give you a call upon receiving the work order to let you know the next steps. Attic insulation is installed in one day and can typically be scheduled within 1-2 weeks of signing a contract. We look forward to helping you with your attic insulation needs!
