Does Your Attic Have Enough Insulation?
Just how much insulation you need depends on where you are located. The nice thing about attic insulation is that it’s easy to tell if you have enough. The recommended level for Kansas attic insulation in Kansas City, Overland Park, KS and the entire KC metro is to insulate to a minimum of R-49 or about 18.5 inches deep, depending on insulation product.
Check to see that the insulation is evenly distributed and there are no low spots. Make sure the insulation goes all the way to the eaves.
Inspect your insulation levels. If you notice that these are at or below the attic floor joists, then it’s a telltale sign that you need to replace and reinstall your attic insulation.
Why Leave the Job Up to a Contractor?
Attic insulation is a big job, especially if you’ve got a big space or too small a space that accessibility becomes a problem. Aside from the scale of this home improvement project, your attic may have certain conditions that call for professional attic insulation in Kansas City. These include:
- A leaky roof
- Rotted attic rafters
- Minimal to no attic ventilation
- Old wiring creating a fire hazard
Our experienced insulation professionals will carry out diligent, efficient work. We make sure the job is done on time and on budget, so you and your family can enjoy a consistently comfortable temperature throughout your home.
We Install Loose-Fill and Batt Insulation in Attics
There are two main kinds of insulation that we install in attics – loose-fill and batt (sometimes called roll). Batt insulation, also called blanket insulation, is fiberglass insulation (molten glass that is spun or blown into fibers) that is attached to a facing. This facing is usually made of kraft paper, white vinyl sheeting, or aluminum foil. All of these facing materials act as a vapor barrier. The facing makes it easier to install because it keeps it together in large rolls that are easy to handle and can also be used to fasten it in place. Loose-fill insulation is also made from fiberglass.
Loose-fill insulation must be applied using a blowing machine. It is also referred to as blown-in insulation. Both batt and loose-fill do a good job of insulating when installed properly. We will help you decide which type of insulation will be best for your home and your attic.

We Offer a Variety of Solutions For Attic Insulation:
InsulSafe SP is a fiberglass blown-in insulation used in both attics and walls. Besides thermal efficiency, it has many other benefits including great coverage, sound absorption, very little settling, and is also noncombustible. It is designed for pneumatic installation in open (attic) and closed (sidewalls/floor) construction cavities. It can be used in both new construction and in existing structures.
Cellulose insulation is another blown-in type of insulation. It acts similar to a liquid when it is applied, wrapping itself around obstructions and filling nooks and crannies that batt insulation can’t. It creates a virtual blanket around the inside of your home providing superior thermal efficiency.
CertaSpray closed cell foam insulation is a spray foam insulation that expands up to 100 times its original size to fill every little space. It is an all-in-one insulation and air sealing system. Once applied, it doesn’t settle or sag. A+ Insulation offers spray foam insulation for commercial and residential properties throughout the Kansas City area.
Batt insulation is one of the most affordable types of insulation for attics and walls. It is effective and affordable, but it is better for areas without a lot of pipes, wires, or other obstructions because these interruptions in the wall require cutting the insulation to fit around them. This can cause gaps in the insulation which negatively affect its ability to insulate the surface from the air. We are licensed and insured and prepared to take on any insulation job in Kansas City.
