Attic Insulation for Energy Efficient Homes in Edmonton

Most homeowners have never been in their attic and if they have, they likely don't know what they are looking at. Common insulation types found in the Edmonton area include:

  • Blown cellulose insulation 
  • Blown fibreglass 
  • Blown Rockwool
  • Fibreglass batts
  • Vermiculite (may contain asbestos)
  • Wood shavings

Like roofing materials, each performs as an insulator but there are differences. As building codes have evolved, so has the required R-Value. R-Value describes insulating material’s thermal resistance, which is its resistance to conductive heat flow. The higher the R-Value rating, the better the insulation is. Today, R40 is the minimum target that we aim to achieve. Many of the older homes with 3" of wood shavings are only insulated to R7. 

At Belvedere Roofing and Exteriors, we proudly use Weathershield Insulation, a successful product since 1976. It is 100% Canadian made with 86% recycled material to help reduce your carbon footprint.

Weather sheild

There are many issues that can arise from deficient insulation in the attic space such as:

  • Condensation and attic rain 
  • Excessive moisture and mould growth
  • Heat gain in summer (causing excessive power bills)
  • Heat loss in winter (causing excessive power bills)
  • Premature failure of roofing shingles

Attic Insulation
The insulation in your home is one of the most important components of your building envelope. With the right amount of insulation, you can improve the comfort level of your home and save on power bills.

Attic ventilation

Attic Ventilation
Ventilation is very important to the attic and roofing system. Inadequate ventilation will lead to problems with condensation and premature failure of your roofing material.

Wood chips

Insulation Removal
Removal of insulation is necessary for different reasons such as wet or contaminated material, renovations, or to lighten the load from older material.
