These Wildwood, MO homeowners found themselves with a mess! Their home was damaged in one of the late spring mega storms that rampaged our area, when a large tree fell onto their roof. Left with gaping holes, a huge mess and damaged insulation, the homeowners got back in contact with Dr. Energy Saver. We had completed air sealing and insulation work in their home just months prior to the storm damage. After a quick visit from their specialist, Chad, the Dr. Energy Saver crew went back to re-air seal and insulate the entire attic area once the roof was repaired.
Blown-in fiberglass insulation uses a similar material to fiberglass batts, but is instead applied by through a machine that shreds the material and blows it into the attic space. Once applied after air sealing, this method creates a thick blanket of insulation that limits heat transfer between the attic and the living space below and helps create a more comfortable, efficient home.
Blown-in insulation can usually be applied over the top of existing insulation, limiting the amount of prep work and time that are involved in the process. Fiberglass is one of the most affordable insulation materials available, making it a great choice for homeowners who are looking to reduce their utility bills.
