Des Moines, Iowa (October 25, 2013) – Tedrick’s Roofing says that, with a cooler winter coming this year, homeowners ought to prepare by ensuring that their homes, especially their attics, have proper insulation. For those who feel they need insulation in their residences in order to keep warm, the Des Moines roofing company can help them install, repair, or upgrade it.
Homeowners are also advised to set about these tasks sooner rather than later, as snow has already fallen earlier than expected in areas of Iowa to the north. The National Weather Service has said that most portions might accumulate less than an inch of snow, although some spots in a city like Waterloo might receive up to two inches of it.
Insulation lets the home keep as much heat as it can. Its layers function as a barrier through which warmth cannot escape through the floor, wall, ceiling, or roof. At the same time, these can also regulate the temperature in spaces such as the attic, ensuring that water from melted snow will not freeze on the roof or gutters.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, as much as 44 percent of the energy used to warm the home is lost due to poorly insulated walls, ceilings, and attics. Homeowners ought to have these parts of the house insulated to keep the loss of heat from happening and enable heaters and furnaces to operate minimally.
Homeowners who want quality insulation can call Tedrick’s Roofing to perform an installation. The company offers blown-in insulation, which features qualities that are more efficient than those of fiberglass batting. This type of insulation is also great for homes where fiberglass batting is hard to install because, unlike the latter, it can fill in spaces without leaving any gaps or voids. With it, homeowners can rest assured that there will be no way for warm air to seep out of the house.
Tedrick’s Roofing offers free estimates to help homeowners know the cost of insulating their attics. Interested homeowners who want to learn more about the company and how their team can help keep properties warm this coming winter can visit www.TedricksRoofing.com today for more information.
