Attic Insulation | Dick's Roofing

Is It Time to Insulate Your Attic?

Wind, snow, ice and cold. Winter is making itself known from the damage to the dunes on Lake Michigan to the sidewalk wreckage in Downtown Kenosha, behind the Kempler Center. But, what you might not realize, is that damage is also being done to your roof. Damage that could possibly be avoided with new or properly installed attic insulation.

If your home is experiencing any of the following issues this winter, it is time to have your home’s attic insulation replaced/inspected:

  • Curling or buckling shingles
  • Missing shingles
  • Ice dams
  • Icicles
  • Overly warm attic

Any one of the above issues can be caused by inadequate or improperly installed attic insulation. Remember, snow and ice are two of the most damaging elements to roofs. Not only can these issues lead to potentially costly repairs, they can also lead to increased heating bills ALL winter. 

A great rule of thumb, when it comes to your attic, is “if it’s too warm, cool it.” Your attic temperature is a result of heat rising from the inside of your home combined with the the heat from the sun shining down on your roof. Without proper insulation, your attic can become a hot little nest egg of trouble.

Your best option, according to Tom Silva, from “This Old House”  to avoid such issues is to properly insulate your attic.

Luckily, now is the time of year best suited for updating, replacing or installing new insulation in your attic area. If your attic is the “arctic tundra” in the winter and becomes the “Serengeti desert” in the height of summer, now is the time to take action. Inspection, installation and clean up is much easier and more comfortable at this time of year, both for you and your contractor.
