As fall sets in, drafty homes become more noticeable. If you’ve been thinking about meeting with a contractor to discuss this situation, there are a few items worth knowing. First and foremost, door knocking contractors that show up at your home unsolicited often perform poor quality work and engage in questionable business tactics. Beware of a contractor that only suggests insulation without mention of attic air sealing. In the majority of homes, both are needed in order to prevent ice dams. Diagnostics such as thermal imaging and blower door testing can help pinpoint where a home is losing energy. While vaulted ceilings can be an aesthetically appealing architectural feature in story and a half homes, they can create the perfect environment for ice dams to form. Working with a contractor that understands the proper installation of a hot roof is your best opportunity to eradicate this issue for good.
