New York Bungalow Residential Application – Attic Insulation
Looking for an alternate form of ceiling and attic insulation to increase cubic space in ceiling
– Customer Quote –
“I recently re-roofed my bungalow style house and added a skylight, ridge vents and soffit vents for a good ventilating air flow from the eaves to the peak. Inside I removed the old ceiling and attic insulation opening up part of the house with a “cathedral” ceiling and making a sleeping/ storage loft over the rest. I sheathed the inside of the roof rafters with furniture grade birch plywood and sealed this with translucent HomeProtect™ .
This allowed me to maintain maximum ventilation for the roof ( as opposed to the foam air channel attachment were I to use traditional pink insulation) with an easier application and also maximizing the beauty of the birch wood grain . Having added a good amount of cubic space to the house, I am incredibly impressed with the insulation effects.
I witnessed just last night when we had our first frost here on long island and I was able to maintain an inside temperature of 68 degrees with only a small woodstove. The boiler never turned on and it was set at 65 degrees.”
