Insulation is not a “one-size fits all” product.
A building is a lot like a human body – what you do in one place affects things in another.
There’s a science into a tighter and more energy efficient home – if you look after it, it will look after you!
Importantly, it is crucial to the longevity of your home to consider the uniqueness of the building, the characteristics of its materials, the climate in which it resides, and the specific building methods that were used in its construction before insulating. Always keep in mind that improperly adding insulation to a building has the potential to wreak havoc on its overall performance.
In short, buildings need to breathe and homeowners must strike a careful balance between fully sealing their building and keeping it breathable…
Our experts understand this, the characteristics of building materials and how they may rely on air movement to disperse moisture so that it does not become trapped – with an absence of ventilation and/or improper insulation, dampness and mold can occur.
