Attic Insulation for Your Home
Home insulation is a major component of consistent energy savings and comfortable living. However, not all types available are suitable for the humidity of southern states.
A complete system is dependent on proper roof ventilation, attic cross-ventilation, and attic insulation. When all factors are optimized, your home’s energy efficiency can increase exponentially – even in the heat of the summer.
An effective way to boost your home’s efficiency would be to add insulation such as AttiCat® Expanding Blown-In insulation. This type comes in cellulose or fiberglass and is blown into the attic using a large machine. The machine blows smaller pieces, filling up the gaps and providing a complete yet airy layer. Blown-in insulation is tighter and more efficient than batts or rolls and prevents airflow from entering the attic. It can also reduce noise transmission. An experienced roofer, like Yellowhammer Roofing, is qualified for professional installation.

We use AttiCat® Insulation.
From our many years of experience at Yellowhammer, we recommend Owens Corning’s AttiCat® Blown-in Insulation as one of the best options for Southern homes. This insulation type utilizes loose fill Fiberglass™ for its insulating efficiency. Rather than laying batts or rolls, AttiCat® is professionally installed through a hose, enabling it to fill even the smallest of corners.
The air pockets formed in the installation process give the material a phenomenal insulating ability. Also, since Fiberglass™ does not settle over time, it maintains its efficient energy-savings R-value throughout the years.

Congratulations! Your Birmingham-area home needs a complete roof replacement! That may not strike everyone as good news, but needing a new roof is a great opportunity. You have many choices in replacement roofing material, like shingles or metal panels. You also can ensure your home stays current with building regulations.
Hire a storm-chasing roofer even once, and you will quickly learn why community involvement is important. Good construction industry contractors live and work in their communities. Sure, they may dispatch proficient crews far from home base, but they always come home. At Yellowhammer Roofing, community involvement is essential.
How much damage is too much? Wreck a wedding cake, and you could be unhappily “famous.” Let a storm wreck your roof, and you could be fighting mold and respiratory infections. Your roof is not meant to sustain a series of “minor” roof problems before you contact your local residential roofer.
