Insulating Your Home In The Twin Cities

Does My Minnesota Home Have Enough Insulation?

An attic insulated to today’s energy standards minimizes heat escape through the ceiling, virtually eliminating the possibility of snow melting and freezing at the base of the roof.  The amount insulation your house should have will vary, depending on where you live, how your house is built, and many other factors.  Insulation levels are recommended by geographic zones and are stated in R-values.  R-value is the resistance to heat flow of a material.  The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.

Ventilation?
• The average family generates 2 to 4 gallons of water vapor a day.  Poor ventilation means some of the vapor may build up in the attic resulting in mold, mildew, and poor air quality.
• Heat in unventilated attics can cause temperatures to exceed 150*F resulting in damage to shingles and roof sheathing.

There is a solution! We have solutions for any of any sort of home improvements you need.  And best of all, some of these home improvements are eligible for tax credits.

The tax credit does not cover the installation/labor costs for insulation, windows, doors, or roofs.

We will provide you with an itemized bill that separates the product cost (ex: insulation) from the installation/labor cost. Insulation, windows, doors, and roofs are eligible for a tax credit of 30% up to $1,500 for the cost of the product only.
