Default attic insulation

Looking to put new insulation in the attic.

Any suggestions on local company?


What do you have in your attic?

I have blown in insulation in my attic. I've seen where Home Depot will give you a free rental on an insulation blower if you buy a certain amount of cellulose insulation. Keep in mind that you will want to protect and not cover any ventilation that is under your eaves.

Here is some info I found on cellulose insulation.

That's the way to go. It's sometimes difficult to judge just how hard it is to walk around in your attic. Unless you have a lot of room, leave it to the pros.

I agree. That's the difference between a smart DIYer and not so. Lack of experience always equals more time to do it right. Sometimes A LOT MORE TIME. I know a neighbor that just finished his bathroom in a year

I am a DIYer, But this time I gave in! Came with a great warranty and I didn't have to do it! I paid for R30, But got R40+. I keep the installers happy with drinks and food and a fan in the attic!
