So, what projects gets you the most bang for your home renovation buck? It may not be nearly as sexy (or fun!) as adding a chef’s kitchen or glam bathroom, but attic insulation gets the top spot. That’s right: Blow some fiberglass or cellulose insulation into of a 35-by-30-foot attic, and you’ll pay an average of $1,268. But when you sell, you will rake in $116.90 for every $100. For you math-challenged out there, that’s a recoup of 116.9% of your costs. It’s the only home reno on this year’s report that redeems more money than you spend!
Service Doctor will free of charge review your home’s insulation and venting of your attic space. Improper venting will decay your roof sheeting and cause your roof shingles to fail prematurely. The attic temperature must be between 5 to 10 degrees of the outside air temperature to protect your roof sheeting, shingles and lower your utility bills. We will check to make sure your bath fans are vented to the outside with insulated piping to prevent moisture and mold in your attic.
Service Doctor recommends and uses both cellulose and fiberglass blown in insulation. Recommended R value (insulating capability) is R-38 (now code in this region).
