INSULATION & AIR SEALING

ENERGY-STAR-Partner LogoLehigh Gap LLC is always looking for ways to help our customers improve their homes while saving money in the process. We have recently added air sealing, attic ventilation and attic insulation to our portfolio of services. These are great services to offer along with our current services because they are interconnected in keeping you comfortable and protecting the home. Having a good building “envelope” will help you against these common problems:

  • Ice damming on roof and in gutters
  • Large quantities of icicles
  • Roof problems due to the lack of insulation & ventilation
  • Extremely hot attics in summer
  • Air leaks from around existing window and door frames
  • Drafts and cold spots in the home
  • Condensation on windows

The department of Energy estimates that proper air sealing and insulation can save 10-50 percent off heating and cooling bills. Not to mention you will notice the difference immediately.

Owens Corning is a proven company in the insulation industry that is known for its innovative products and let’s not forget this guy.  The Pink Panther.

The AttiCat system uses bagged Fiberglas insulation which is fed into a machine to insulate your attic. It works by breaking it up and fluffing it, adding millions of the tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power. The insulation is conditioned further throughout the length of the hose, and as it bounces its way up to your attic, more and more air pockets are added, increasing its insulating power even more. And since Fiberglas™ insulation will not settle, it will keep its energy-saving R-value over time.

Having your home properly air sealed is critical to your energy conservation efforts and greatly impacts your utility bills. You can save up to 30% of your energy costs by air sealing multiple points of your home where energy losses occur. Additionally, air leaks are also a major cause of discomfort, moisture problems and even poor air quality.

Proper insulation and air sealing also keeps attics cold in winter by blocking the entry of heat and moist air from below which reduces the potential for ice damming. In the summer, natural air flow in a well-vented attic moves super-heated air out of the attic, protecting roof shingles and removing moisture. The insulation will resist heat transfer into the house.

Excess moisture can lead to mold, ice damming and potential roof damage when it becomes trapped in your customer’s attic. Raft-R-mate® attic rafter vents help attic insulation perform at its best.

“ From the estimate to the job completion, it was an excellent experience. They listened and completed the project that solved my problem, all at a fair price. The company deserved a six star rating if it was available. ”

“ The project was scheduled and proceeded exactly as quoted. Steve Pisulak was prompt in our appointment to discuss the project and he was able to schedule the work in co-operation with the roofer we were using, so the overall project was completed on time. We used Lehigh Gap Seamless Gutters because of a special gutter screen we hadn’t seen before, and due to the height of our house this option was the right choice for us. We would recommend this company due to their reliability. ”

“ Excellent, ethical company to work with. I originally contacted this company to do the seamless gutters. After talking with the sales person, Steve, I found they did other work as well. So I started with gutters, added a new roof, 30 plus windows, one storm door with dog portal and 2 customized storm doors, vinyl ceiling on back porch, new railings on back porch, columns wrapped, new stairs to the back yard and new railings on my side porch. This company is fair and honest…the salesman is honest and one heck of a nice guy…no lowballing. If you need work done on your home, please give them a shot. I seriously doubt you will have any regrets. I have none and I will have them here to do additional work. ”
