Removed existing insulation to air seal the ceiling before installing TruSoft™ cellulose insulation.
This Peoria IL attic needed insulation. The house, being about 60 years old had very little insulation in the attic. The owner has lived there for 40 years, and over the past few years has been experiencing ice dams on their gutters each winter. The snow on the roof always melted and ice dams formed even though the roof was new within the past 2 years and gutters were recently replaced.
After conducting a whole home health audit, we determined the old insulation needed to be removed and disposed (we provided a dumpster for this project), the attic air-sealed, duct work encapsulated, and new insulation installed.
Upon completion, we presented our client with our Smart Money Guarantee - so not only will his home be resistant to ice dams in the winter (saving him hassle and costly repairs) but he also has the peace of mind knowing that if he does not save the principal paid in repairs and upgrades in ten years, we will rebate him the difference between the amount spent and the amount saved!

Walk up attics can be great for storage, but they are also great for air leakage. If you don't have a cover at the top of your attic stairs, you are losing all of the air you just paid to heat. Here are some before and after pictures of us adding a cover to our customers walk up stairs.
