Improve your home's energy efficiency with air sealing.
Properly air sealing these vulnerable spots in your home can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, particularly in the cold winter months and create a healthier indoor environment.
When you stand in a specific spot in your home, do you feel a draft? When the weather is cold and windy, too much air often enters houses. By comparison, when the weather is warmer and less windy, not enough air may enter, causing poor indoor air quality. Air infiltration can also cause problems with moisture, mold, and dusty air. Common trouble spots include attics, shafts for piping or ducts, dropped ceilings, fireplace walls, windows and doors, and more.
The best strategy is to reduce air leakage as much as possible and to provide controlled ventilation for air flow. HandiFoam® market-leading low-pressure one-component polyurethane foam sealants (OCF) are moisture cured and designed to completely fill and seal small gaps, cracks and voids. Compared to standard cartridge type sealants, these polyurethane foam sealants have excellent adhesion and expansion characteristics, ensuring a complete and permanent air tight seal. Polyurethane foam sealants result in less waste on small jobs while having a positive economic impact on large jobs.Contact our Eau Claire area insulation contractors today
The Rock & Tait team that came to our house to redo our attic insulation and ventilation did a fantastic job. The team was troopers crawling into some tight spaces to make sure our house would be airtight. We were also very impressed with the quality of work and craftsmanship on our awning that needed to be replaced. We can't recommend them enough!
Our experience with Rock and Tait was positive all the way around. They arranged for an energy audit and followed up with recommendations. They communicated the plan and kept us up-to-date with progress. Everyone on the crew was professional and friendly. We had our 1960s house reroofed, some windows and a storm door replaced, the attic insulated, ventilation added, and exhaust fans installed. I would work with them again!
Rock & Tait put together an itemized estimate for us based on our energy performance test results. We were able to prioritize the items completed and went from a 1575 CFM -ACH of 4 down to 792 CFM -ACH of 1.9 = 51% reduction in air loss! Our heating and air system doesn't have to run as hard or as long as before = $$$ saved. I couldn't be happier that I selected Rock & Tait. Their ability to do it all made the entire process easy.
My house was built in the 1930s and likely hadn't been meaningfully insulated since. This year, I decided to bite the bullet and get it done (plus attic venting, bathroom fan, and basement crawl space insulation). It's only been finished for a few weeks, but I can definitely feel the difference already! With gas bills skyrocketing this winter, I'm very much looking forward to seeing what a difference this will make. Rock & Tait did a great job, and I'm so thrilled to have this finished!
Rock & Tait insulated and dry-walled my garage. It made a huge difference in the temperature inside the garage. Work was done quickly and clean-up was done promptly. The cost was minimal and saved me many labor hours. I highly recommend Rock & Tait!
I had an energy assessment earlier this spring and after receiving my detailed assessment I reached out to Rock & Tait. Our project was more than just insulating due to some complex design flaws within our home. The service was excellent and their communication throughout the project exceeded expectations. They were meticulous in the details and it showed in our follow-up energy assessment. Well worth the investment!
