I own a 50 year old single family home in Brampton, Ontario. The current attic insulation consists of the builder's pink insulation laid between the ceiling rafters and some additional cellulose insulation blown in about 20 years ago. The blown insulation is almost up the level of the top of the rafters, or about 4 or 5 inches on top of the original pink roll. I am uncertain of the existing RSI value, but I assume it is about RSI 2.11 (R-12). I would like to upgrade the ceiling insulation to qualify for the maximum grant under the extended ecoENERGY Grant Program, or up to RSI 8.81 (R-50). The house is a 3 bedroom side split with an attached garage and has approximately 2,100 square feet of attic split into two attic areas - about 1,200 square feet on the main level (accessible by two attic openings) and about 900 square feet on the upper level (accessible by one attic opening). Please provide a quote for blown cellulose insulation to obtain an R-50 insulation value using material compliant with the extended ecoENERGY program.
The home area was constructed around 8 years ago so the home should be up to today standards but you never know what behind the dry walls.
The two car garage is attached to the home. The garage is very cold. The garage door has no insulation. The walls inside have dry walls so we cannot check the insulation value.
We would like a "best for the money" insulation solution, not over the top project.
We have a single car garage, with a drywall ceiling. We are not sure if it is has no insulation or just poor insulation, as the bedroom above it is very cold/hot depending on the outside weather. We would like to put additional insulation in the garage - blown foam or fibreglass, depending on cost efficiency.
It has been recommended that we increase the insulation in our attic and basement crawlspace.
The basement crawlspace is about 13 feet long, and aprox 3.5 ft high. The Energy Audit recommends insulating to a minimum value of RSI 4.2 (R-24). There is currently no insulation against the back wall (which is why the entryway hall is so cold in winter) and the insulation currently in the ceiling of the crawlspace (it looks like styrofoam) should probably come down and be replaced with better insulation.
I'm not sure of the dimensions of the attic, but it is a 1400 sq ft (main and basement) bungalow. The current level of insulation is RSI 3.9 (R-22) and the Energy Audit report recommends a minimum value of RSI 8.8 (R-50).
On the second floor of the front of the house it's always extremely cold. I believe the previous owners didn't insulate properly when they had the extension of the front the house done, so I think the cold and heat air is coming directly through the eaves/soffits spreading throughout my floor on the front of the house.
Are you able to pass by to have a quick look and give me an estimate to have that checked and if so to have the eaves/soffits removed and insulate proper to prevent air coming in to the house?
Please let me know
Ps.. there's a photo attached so you have an visual ideia of the house.
racoons have damaged insulation and vapour barrier (?) in attic. Entire house needs insulatio removed and reinstalled .
Mould growing everywhere
Heat bills going through roof
Extreme cold causes severe condensation on ceillings.
Windows need replacing.
House is 35-40 years old.
Possible rearrangement of floor plan
1893 basement needs rim joist insulation to relieve cold floors. I don't know whether the framing is ballon framing or not. I do know we have have a lot of cold walls and floors in the older section of the house. There is also work to be done replacing mortar in between the field stones. I am the owner.
One bedroom, 4.57m x 2.67m, on 2nd level is cold in the winter and warm in the summer (winter is worse, a small heater is required to sleep in there). The room is directly above a one-car garage (drywall garage), and on the other side of the main wall is another unit. The opposite side of the room is another bedroom and a hall. The outside is brick. This is an end unit of a row of townhouses. It is about 15 yrs old, and we moved in Sept 2005. The house inspector at that time peeked into the attic with a light and said the insulation was good.
We think the issue may be a lack of proper insulation (even though the inspector said it was good, that was 6 yrs ago, and the room is at the far end of the attic opening). We want to know for sure if the issue is insulation, and if so, how much it would cost to fix it.
