Attic Insulation Photo Album: Transforming an Attic with Blown-in Cellulose Insulation in Bernardsville, NJ
We're at a home in Bernardsville, NJ, adding some much needed blown-in cellulose insulation to the attic.
Fiberglass Insulation Deteriorated
All the fiberglass insulation had been deteriorated (because it was old) and is now dirty, wet, and ineffective.
As fiberglass insulation ages, it degrades, leaving gaps where air can escape. In other words, your heater or air conditioner needs to work even harder to maintain the temperature inside your home.
First, we carefully removed all the old insulation and properly disposed of it. We then placed several measuring sticks throughout the attic to ensure that the proper amount of R-value is added to the attic.
Next, we air sealed all the gaps and cracks in the attic. This will eliminate air flow between the living space and the attic, improving energy efficiency.

Lastly, we added over 10 inches of TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation.
