Why Choose Pro Home Improvement?
What You Can Expect
Full Attic Inspection
Before proceeding with any attic work, a comprehensive inspection by a Pro expert evaluates ventilation and insulation needs. The inspection ensures a fair and accurate estimate, covering all costs and requirements, from insulation type to quantity, to provide a comprehensive quote.
Preparing Your Home
We’ll ensure your home is protected and your attic is ready through protective layers, also installing vapor barriers to prevent mold and baffles for proper ventilation.
Installing the Insulation
The attic insulation installation method varies, depending on the type of insulation purchased – blown-in attic insulation, batt insulation, or spray foam insulation.
Quality Insulation Materials
Blown-In Attic Insulation
Blown-in insulation is installed by running a hose from a truck-mounted blower machine into the attic. The installer directs the hose to ensure an even layer of insulation on the attic floor.
Batt Attic Insulation
Batt insulation is installed by measuring and cutting sections to fit between floor joists in the attic. Additional layers may be added for full coverage. Alternatively, insulation can be nailed between rafters instead of being laid on the floor.
Spray Foam Attic Insulation
Spray foam insulation is applied using smaller hoses, covers attic walls and ceilings, and expands upon application. It's advisable for homes to remain vacant for 24 hours post-installation due to toxic fumes emitted during application.
Stabilized Cellulose Insulation for Walls
Our exclusive stabilized cellulose blown-in insulation guarantees long-term coverage without settling or shifting, ensuring effectiveness for decades. Made from 100% recycled materials, it's our greenest insulation option, providing sustainable and efficient home insulation.
Dense Pack Cellulose Insulation for Walls
Upgrade your finished walls' R-value efficiently with dense pack cellulose insulation. By drilling small, easily sealed holes in the exterior, stabilized cellulose is blown directly into walls, tightly filling each cavity without costly repairs.
Fiberglass Insulation for Walls
Fiberglass insulation, offered in loose-fill and batt forms, is widely used in Michigan homes for its effectiveness. Recognizable by its pink color, it consists of glass fibers woven with a binder, providing a wool-like texture.
The Details for Expertly Installed Insulation
Checking the Current Insulation Levels
Pro Home Improvement will evaluate the current insulation’s R-value per inch and calculate its sufficiency for meeting Energy Star-recommended levels in Michigan homes, typically between R50 and R60 for attics, ensuring adequate insulation coverage.
Look for Gaps in Coverage
Batt insulation often leaves gaps, especially in corners and around electrical wiring. Loose-fill and spray foam insulation can also develop gaps, but they are less frequent. A thorough inspection is essential for identifying and addressing these areas.
Inspect Health of Current Insulation
Contractors inspect insulation for wet spots, indicating roof leaks, and look for signs of pest infestation beneath and around the insulation. This comprehensive check ensures any underlying issues are addressed alongside insulation concerns.
