Air Leakage Control
Grade 1 Insulation with an effective air barrier. Every job, every time.
Insulation is an integral part of constructing or renovating a comfortable, efficient, and durable home. Unfortunately, this critical trade is paid little due by many builders, remodelers, and even building inspectors! If not installed to Grade 1 (99.5% perfect) standard, insulation will not work as intended, causing discomfort in summer and winter, excessive energy use, high utility bills, and condensation in building assemblies.
Insulation is only half the equation when it comes to a thermally efficient enclosure to protect from the elements. Even if perfectly installed, insulation only does its job in tandem with an effective air barrier, to prevent heated and cooled air from leaking out of the home through drafty areas. Most insulation contractors don’t complete air leakage control improvements as part of their standard process.
