We seal off all the air leaks in your North Carolina home to make sure that your insulation is doing its job, which is to insulate (just like a blanket does when you're in bed). We use Firestop caulking and Spray foam insulation in all the vital areas where air leaks exist such as around the foundation of your home at the sill plate, around electrical outlets, switches and plumbing pipes.

Live Comfortable - We all experienced the feeling of waking up on a cold morning and not wanting to step out of bed because of how uncomfortable the house until we get up and "crank up the heat". If your parents were like mine the Thermostat would get turned down before we "turn in" for the night, If our homes were Insulated better and sealed from Air leaks the heat wouldn't have escaped and we would have woke up in comfort ready to get out of bed and start the day.
It's a fact that by not having your Charlotte area home Insulated properly you are also putting a strain on your Heating and Cooling system (HVAC) because it runs longer and starts up more frequently which costs you money not only in fuel or electric but also the cost of having to re-charge you Air conditioning unit more frequently.

Radiant Barrier - Radiant barrier is another important upgrade especially in the South because of the intense sun and heat we experience in the Charlotte region. Radiant barrier is designed to reflect the radiant heat from the sun that penetrates the roof of our homes and finds its way into the attic space increasing the temperature tremendously.
