- In the mid-west an insulation value of R-38 to R-60 is recommended which is about 14” to 20” of attic insulation. Please call TruCraft Roofing if you would like your existing attic ventilation evaluated and increased to meet the recommended requirements for homes in this region.
- Attic Insulation will work best when it is combined with a good attic ventilation system. If you’re attic isn’t ventilating properly then sometimes more insulation can do more harm than good. It keeps the hot air trapped in the attic and can decrease the life of your shingles.
