Removed existing insulation to air seal the ceiling before installing TruSoft™ cellulose insulation.
Our client owns an historic home in Peoria IL that boasts a large attic. Our client had an unwanted visitor in their attic (a bat) and wanted to ensure they wouldn’t have more. Additionally, our customer wanted a cooler upstairs in the summer and to improve his home’s resale value.
The solution our customer chose was to have PCB Insulators remove the old, dirty batt insulation, air-seal all of the leaks and gaps (including around the chimney), install scuttle cover for the attic access, then blow in new cellulose insulation.
The resulting blower door test (performed before and after the job) shows a decrease by 2000 cfm of airflow. There have been no more bats in the attic, and the customer’s upstairs is now more comfortable.

This Peoria IL attic needed insulation. The house, being about 60 years old had very little insulation in the attic. The owner has lived there for 40 years, and over the past few years has been experiencing ice dams on their gutters each winter. The snow on the roof always melted and ice dams formed even though the roof was new within the past 2 years and gutters were recently replaced.
After conducting a whole home health audit, we determined the old insulation needed to be removed and disposed (we provided a dumpster for this project), the attic air-sealed, duct work encapsulated, and new insulation installed.
Upon completion, we presented our client with our Smart Money Guarantee - so not only will his home be resistant to ice dams in the winter (saving him hassle and costly repairs) but he also has the peace of mind knowing that if he does not save the principal paid in repairs and upgrades in ten years, we will rebate him the difference between the amount spent and the amount saved!
