Attic Insulation 

Properly insulating and air sealing your attic will help reduce your energy bills. Attics are often one of the easiest places in a house to insulate, especially if you’d like to add insulation.

Before insulating or deciding whether to add insulation to your attic, first see our information about adding insulation to an existing house or selecting insulation for new home construction if you haven’t already.

Warning: if you think you have vermiculite insulation in your attic, there’s a chance it could contain asbestos. Don’t disturb it. Only insulation contractors certified to handle and remove asbestos should deal with vermiculite insulation.

Attic Insulation Techniques

logo_pink_is_green Loose-fill or batt insulation is typically installed in an attic. Although installation costs may vary, loose-fill insulation is usually less expensive to install than batt insulation. When installed properly, loose-fill insulation also usually provides better coverage.

Before installing any type of insulation in your attic, follow these steps:

  • Seal all attic-to-home air leaks. Most insulation does not stop airflow.

  • Duct exhaust fans to the outside. Use a tightly constructed box to cover fan housing on attic side. Seal around the duct where it exits the box. Seal the perimeter of the box to the drywall on attic side.

  • Cover openings—such as dropped ceilings, soffits, and bulkheads—into attic area with plywood and seal to the attic side of the ceiling.

  • Seal around chimney and framing with a high-temperature caulk or furnace cement.

            • At the tops of interior walls, use long-life caulk to seal the smaller gaps and holes. Use expanding foam or strips of rigid foam board insulation for the larger gaps.

Wall Painting Technique-Make Your Room Look New Again

Wall painting is a wonderful way to add rich tone to any room, simply. Depending on the shade you select, we can brighten, clean up or cozy up your room in an afternoon. You can make small rooms appear larger or ample rooms appear more inviting. Paint is inexpensive, easy to apply and can serve as a beautiful backdrop to your space – provided that it is done right. Fortunately, there are some easy steps to follow that will ensure that your interior painted space will look great and last for many years.  Call us today for a free in home consultation.

Information, Research and Price Estimates for Painting Your Home or Business

Painting your house is one of the best ways to add value to your home when using quality paints and proven techniques. This is true even if you are putting on the same color as before. Keep in mind, using high quality paint can make a surface more abrasion-resistant, easier to clean and capable of washing without the risk of removing/scrubbing off the paint.

Interior Painting

If you are working indoors, you must attend to the holes in walls and ceilings before applying on a new coat of paint to ensure a great finish. These areas should be repaired with a vinyl spackling compound and they will usually require more than one coat due to shrinkage. Larger areas of drywall or plaster damage will most likely need more time and possibly wallboard or plaster patch. Visit this link to read our article on simple drywall patches. You can make wallboard repairs with Fiberglas joint tape and drywall joint compound. Plaster repairs can be successfully made with plaster patching product. If you need to blend in a textured finish after you make a repair, try using a spray texture in an aerosol can.

FEMA: During a Hurricane

 

If a hurricane is likely in your area, you should:

  • Listen to the radio or TV for information.
  • Secure your home, close storm shutters, and secure outdoor objects or bring them indoors.
  • Turn off utilities if instructed to do so. Otherwise, turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting and keep its doors closed.
  • Turn off propane tanks.· Avoid using the phone, except for serious emergencies.
  • Moor your boat if time permits.
  • Ensure a supply of water for sanitary purposes such as cleaning and flushing toilets. Fill the bathtub and other large containers with water.

You should evacuate under the following conditions:

  • If you are directed by local authorities to do so. Be sure to follow their instructions.
  • If you live in a mobile home or temporary structure—such shelters are particularly hazardous during hurricanes no matter how well fastened to the ground.
  • If you live in a high-rise building—hurricane winds are stronger at higher elevations.
  • If you live on the coast, on a floodplain, near a river, or on an inland waterway.
  • If you feel you are in danger.

If you are unable to evacuate, go to your safe room. If you do not have one, follow these guidelines:

  • Stay indoors during the hurricane and away from windows and glass doors.
  • Close all interior doors—secure and brace external doors.
  • Keep curtains and blinds closed. Do not be fooled if there is a lull; it could be the eye of the storm – winds will pick up again.
  • Take refuge in a small interior room, closet, or hallway on the lowest level.
