Ensuring your North Carolina home is properly insulated with attic insulation will help keep you comfortable throughout the year. Keep your energy bills lower and reduce damage from temperature fluctuations with Camden Roofing’s Attic Roof Insulation Services.
Why Is Proper Attic Insulation Important?
Nothing is more important than keeping your family comfortable and safe at home, and proper attic insulation is essential to maintaining thermal comfort throughout your North Carolina residence. If you don’t insulate your attic properly, then you could end up with a lot of problems such as:
- Condensation in the attic that can cause mold and mildew. This can be dangerous for anyone who breathes in toxins from mold spores and can lead to serious health issues like respiratory problems or even death in some cases if left untreated long enough.
- Poor air circulation will result in your HVAC system running more than it needs to
- Not being able to keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
- The roof deck may become damaged over time due to water damage, which can lead to leaks and other major problems.
- A fire hazard from the build-up of heat in the attic.
- Ice dams in the winter. If the attic is too cold, then it can lead to ice dams forming on the roofs which causes water damage inside your home.
- A higher risk of pipes freezing or bursting in the winter months.
- Insects and pests can make their homes in your attic.

How Attic Insulation Works
The basics of attic insulation are simple. The first thing to understand is that heat rises so when you’re in your attic, you’ll notice that it’s always warmest at the top. The second is that the colder it gets, the better the heat insulators work. So, when you lose the ability to conduct heat through your roof, you lose energy efficiency and end up spending more on energy costs.
Therefore, installing attic insulation from insulation leader Owens Corning is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly way to save money on your home heating and cooling costs. It helps reduce heat loss by slowing down the transfer of heat from inside to outside (or vice versa).
Reasons to Hire Professional Attic Insulation Installers
Your attic insulation is one of the most important parts of your home’s energy efficiency. But, if it’s not installed correctly, it won’t function at its full potential and may do more harm than good. Are you wanting to know which attic insulation is best, or if you can do a DIY attic insulation? You want to make sure that your attic insulation is installed properly. It makes sense to hire a professional roofing company like Camden Roofing to do the work for you. This is because installing attic insulation depends on several factors, including:

The Size of Your Attic and the Amount of Insulation Required
Attic insulation contractors are equipped with special technology that allows them to measure the square footage of your attic and determine how much insulation you need based on that measurement.
The best way to determine how much insulation is needed for your attic is by calculating its R-value. The R-value of attic insulation refers to its resistance to heat transfer. The higher the R-value, the better insulated your attic will be, it won’t need as much heating or cooling to maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home. The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends using at least R-38 insulation in all attics, but some areas may need more than that depending on the climate and orientation of the home. In addition, many states require homeowners to install at least R-19 or R-30 insulation in their attics if they have no existing insulation at all.
The Level of Insulation Already Present
Some homeowners already have plenty of attic insulation in their attics, while others have very little. If you already have some attic insulation but want more, then hiring a contractor is probably a good idea because they’ll be able to tell exactly how much additional insulation is needed and install it properly for maximum effectiveness and efficiency.
The Age of Your Home
Older homes may not have been properly insulated during construction, so it’s important to have them inspected before installing new insulation. Even if the existing insulation is in good shape, you may need to remove an old layer and install new insulation over the top of it because older materials lose their insulating properties over time.
The Type of Roofing Material
Some roofing materials are easier to install than others; some require special tools or equipment that most people don’t have access to at home. If you are worried about damaging your roof while working on installing attic insulation, then hiring an expert makes sense for you. Installing more attic insulation is best done during a re-roofing project. You will already have the roof stripped to the deck making it much easier to add more attic insulation from above. This will help keep your home cleaner while adding the proper amount of insulation.
Type of Attic Insulation You Need
There are many different types of attic insulation out there, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. For example, some types of attic insulation are better at blocking heat than others, while some can block noise. If you want the best possible attic insulation, it’s important that you consult with an expert so they can recommend an appropriate type of material for your home. At Camden Roofing & Construction we recommend and use industry leading Owens Corning attic insulation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Attic Insulation
Q: How much does attic insulation cost?

Q: How much insulation should I put in my attic?
A: It depends on the climate where you live, what type of house you have, how well it was built originally, and how much energy efficiency you want. A general rule of thumb is to use at least R-38 fiberglass batt or R-60 blown-in cellulose. While this will likely be enough for most homes, some climates may require more insulation depending on factors such as the number of windows, orientation toward winter winds and so forth.

Q: Why add attic insulation during a re-roof project?
A: During a re-roof project, we will already have your roofing system torn off your home. This makes it easy for us to take a few sheets of roof decking off your roof and take our blow-in line in through the roof without even having to enter your home. It will save time and effort during the process, keep you out of your attic, and save you money.
