Insulating Cathedral Ceilings
Cathedral ceilings are always a magnificent addition to any home. However, they do require special maintenance and to take care of this specifically. Such hard work will pay off when the Cathedral ceiling fulfills its expectative not only to look amazing but also to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter.
Just like with any other type of ceiling. The bulk of temperature and humidity arrives at the ceiling through air movement. Therefore, the best way to tackle them is to create an airproof and airtight roof assembly. This can be achieved with either vented batt-insulation or unvented spray-applied insulation.
Batt insulation should be installed with a separation of 1.5” this will allow the ceiling to release air through the ridge vent. Of course, if you choose the spray-applied insulation, this will make it that there is no exchange of air through the ceiling, and as such, humidity from the outside will not sift in.
It might seem difficult for you, the new homeowner who wants to insulate your Cathedral ceiling by yourself, Do not worry, contact us at any time, we will be happy to help.
Insulating Ceilings with Attics
Insulating homes that have attics is not a difficult thing to do. It does require a little bit more attention to detail than what you would do and need for any other type of insulation, such as wall insulation. For ceilings with attics, the first that you need to remember is to insulate the trap door that gives you access to the attic itself.
This can be achieved by using batt insulation or using rigid insulation. It is important in both cases to provide a level of insulation that exceeds the rest of the attic insulation. This is because the door is the weakest spot in the attic and consequently, it can be the most problematic area.
For the rest of the space, insulation is pretty standard. Remember to insulate the entire space, to isolate any electrical, water, or gas fixtures after making sure that they do not need any special attendance or taking care of it beforehand.
If you have any questions or are uncertain about the viability that it might have to insulate your attic with spray foam and then the trap door with fiberglass batt, drop us a line and we will be happy to help you.
