A quality job starts with professional installation. Our installers are fully trained professionals. Preparation and cleanliness are important for our company…  Our installers take great care in ensuring we leave your home just the way we found it.

The Department of Energy has rated insulation thicknesses using a number called “R-value” to evaluate maximum efficiency and comfort.  Most homes fall drastically short of those recommendations. 

The R-value is a measure of the resistance to heat transfer. All insulation products have an R-value. R-value is a function of denisty, thickness, and type. For Denver, the R-value of your attic insulation should be between R-49 and R-60.

But R-value is only one component of the efficiency conversation and process.  Other factors to consider are ventilation, materials, and placement of the insulation. Each variable contributes to the longevity and overall effectiveness of the solution you choose to deploy. 

Improper installation can actually cause an adverse effect on home efficiency. Some materials lose R-value over time and have potential hazards associated with them. Proper equipment and training increase your chances of having success with your insulation installation. Contact us for more information on attic insulation.

Frequently Asked Questions

To insulate your attic, you first need to determine the depth of current insulation to calculate R-Value. Many homes have only 4-5 inches of insulation. If the existing insulation is not thick enough, raise the R-value to the appropriate level to adequately insulate your attic and make it more energy-efficient.

There are two ways you can insulate your finished attic. If only the living space will be insulated, wrap insulation around the room’s walls and ceiling. However, if you want to make sure that the area behind the knee wall is not too hot or cold in winter months, apply insulation from the roofline all way down to floor level while wrapping it along non-living part of house walls and ceilings as well.

Safety is paramount when working with insulation due to the fiberglass fibers. A typical install of insulation in the attic will have the following steps:

1. Have proper protection gear on hand.

2. Prep the attic by foaming all open gaps.

3. Install battens in the soffit to ensure proper airflow.

4. Set out height indicators to ensure the proper level of installation.

5. Blow in loose-fill insulation to fill the spaces.

Peak to Peak can help you properly insulate your attic and home to make it more energy-efficient through the months of extreme temperatures.

The amount of attic insulation needed depends on the specifics of your home and the climate. In general, 17.5 inches of insulation is recommended in Colorado. A proper amount of attic insulation helps your home stay warm in winter and cool in summer, which provides better air quality for the house and lower energy costs.

Was delighted to have quality work done in a timely manner. Especially considering the demand in the construction industry right now where sometimes even getting a call back seems like an oddity. Will return for future roofing needs.

My realtor suggested Damen at Peak to Peak for a roof replacement through our insurance. We were on a timeline to sell our home, and Damen was an absolute rock star. He answered the call on a Sunday night, showed up for an inspection and helped us through the process - getting the entire job done within a couple short weeks. The roof looks amazing, and Damen also met with our insurance adjuster and added the gutters and garage door. I can't say enough about the professionalism, communication, availability and work that Damen and Peak to Peak provide. Give them a call - you won't regret it!
