Attic Roof And Wall Penetration Caulking Helps Prevent Leaks

Attic Roof And Wall Penetration Caulking Helps Prevent Leaks

Transferring heat from a room, through walls or even from the ceiling is natural and unfortunately very expensive. It is estimated that 35% of heat is lost through poorly insulated walls and up to 25% of home heat is lost through ceilings and roofs. This means that up to 60% of your energy bill can be wasted due to heat loss through the elements.

The best way to reduce overall heat loss and save money, in the long run, is to install the right insulation, including attic waterproofing and wall penetration. Attic and wall penetrating work by finding open and uninsulated gaps and sealing with expandable thermal sealant. You can also contact us today to request a free quote.

Finding leaks is often easier said than done. In some cases, leaks can go undetected for years without a proper inspection by an insulation specialist. Even a small leak can cause enormous heat loss as well as high energy bills. A tip for finding leaks is to check the insulation for dark spots.

When the insulation is in the attic, localized spots can have heavy exposure to the outside air and spots where dirt is filtered through cracks or leaks. Another method of finding areas in need of repair can be used in cold weather, you can look for accumulated frost in the insulation.

Frost occurs when warm, moist air from inside the house condenses very quickly when it encounters cooler outside air. In most cases, this dirty or frozen insulation is still good and doesn't need to be replaced. However, the leak should be repaired as soon as possible. Large holes or leaks should be repaired with the right tools, but small cracks can easily be closed with roof and wall putty.
