    Looking to put new insulation in the attic.

    Any suggestions on local company?


    What do you have in your attic?

    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!
