Century Insulation is your Minneapolis Insulation Contractor that provides an entire package of insulation services in Minnesota, especially expert Attic Insulation and Ventilation Services for all of St Paul. Our attic insulation and ventilation services take a two-pronged approach in ensuring that your home or business gets the right amount of airflow and that the roof and attic get the appropriate amount of as well as evenly-placed insulation. This will, in turn protect your building from heat loss, water damage, mildew, mold growth, and other potential damages to the structural components.
Ice Dam Prevention St Paul
Poor attic insulation, when combined with inadequate ventilation, can cause serious ice dam issues in the winter months, which is the majority of the year in this state. We can perform ice dam analysis and repair, often saving our customers thousands of dollars in expensive roof repairs that are not normally covered by insurance plans. And many property owners can attest that prevention is a much more affordable and easier task to take care of than repairs – especially when structural integrity issues are involved.
Proper Indoor Air Circulation
The cutaway image below displays how air should flow in a well insulated home. Soffit vents below the roofline pull air from outside of the house; this comes across the roof insulation plug and up into what is called an “air chute” – essentially, a channel that runs directly under the roof’s backing board. This also helps your home keep a healthy atmosphere for you and your family.
This chute allows air to flow from the exterior of the house and from the top of vents that release pent-up attic heat into the atmosphere. This process helps keep your home cool and insulated during the high temperatures of the summer months.
