"So, the guys are really great. Very earnest, communicative, reasonable, timely, nice, etc.etc. It started out so well. We were rookies and they were very patient." As things went a long, they got some other jobs though and there were so many sub-contractors to coordinate, that things went a little haywire -- the funniest/most tragic incident was when movers filled a storage room full to the brim with furniture only for BGB to realize they had forgotten to prep and paint it. There were some other mistakes and gaffs, but that was on both sides. All in all, it was much better than it could have been. They were pretty honest about when things went wrong. The on-line web-based software they use allowed us to keep track of costs and see pictures and in some cases we were able to spot errors or omissions from the pictures they posted. Such as when they charged us for wall insulation, but we saw from the pictures that they hadn't really been able to fit the insulate behind the walls (too thin). We were not on site so that made communciation and timelines more challenging. We ran about 3 months late due to delays in permits and them having other jobs and getting distracted. One thing that made me sort of crazy was when they made a mistake, they often charged us for the time it took them to correct it. I was able to put a stop to that through discussions. I withheld the final payment for a few weeks until we settled some concerns about the structural work, and the boss threatened to put a
on the house. I thought that was rather bullying, but I guess money is tight in the industry and contractors are not known for their good manners.

Avoid ice dams with proper attic insulation

Do you have icicles forming on your eaves and gutters and ice collecting on your roof? An ice dam can cause serious problems without proper insulation.

Better air quality, quieter living spaces, comfort and better health are all reasons to reconsider your insulation choices. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Roseanne J. of Seattle)

Hot air rises … but good insulation can keep your energy costs from doing the same thing.

Even in cold-weather climates, homes often lack insulation between the finished, occupied portion of the home and the ground. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Paul B. of Bluffton, South Carolina)

If you go the Better Business Bureau website you can see that the company has only had two complaints in the last 18 months and that they have both been resolved.  The company has an A+ rating.  This is not something you can buy.

 

There are genuine reviews on many 3rd party online review sites including AngiesList and the Better Business Bureau.  Simply do a Google search for "Smart Energy Today Reviews".

 

Sol Blanket Insulation acts as a radiant barrier, insulation and a vapor barrier.  It is not intended to replace traditional insulation but in fact compliments it and adds to it's ability to keep cool/hot air (depending on the season) in the home when the envelope of the home is properly sealed.  

 

Every attic is different and there are many other components that must be considered.  You mentioned an attic fan as well.  The heat that is radiated away from the ceiling by the Sol-Blanket Insulation is pushed out of the attic with an attic fan.  The US Department of Energy states that radiant barriers do work and suggest they be installed by professionals.

 

As with any product by any company if the product is not installed properly and other factors (attic fan, caulking and sealing, etc...) are not addressed then it will not be as effective.

?

A couple of comments about what Jim said:

1) Regarding type of insulation, in cold winter environments: Cellulose and fiberglass are actually about comparable in R value when installed - blown in cellulose runs from 3.2-3.8 R value, fiberglass batt 2.9-4.3 R value depending on manufacturer and whether hig-density or low density, high-efficiency or standard, according to official Department of Energy publications. Measured values in attic test cases, in areas with a true winter, after 10 years showed a decrease from 3.4 (in the test case) down to 2.1 for cellulose, and 3.5 to 3.3 for fiberglass batt, due to packing or matting. In an attic environment, there WILL be condensation or frost on the insulation at some point during the year (assuming an area with true winters) and in highly insulated houses commonly for a substantial time period each winter. Fiberglass packs down slightly from that weight but mostly rebounds, cellulose packs down and mats and does not substantially recover, so over the years cellulose loses 1/3 to close to 1/2 its insulation value, fiberglass about 10%.

2) a note on radiation barriers attached to the bottom of the rafters - there are a lot of installers and homeowners making two major mistakes with this product that can cause major trouble: First, be sure to terminate it short of the eave openings. I have seen cases where it was carried all the way out to the fascia board, thereby blocking all airflow on the underside of the roof. Even carrying it all the way to the eaves along the bottom of the rafters will block off ventilation to the main attic area. You have to leave the air space between the rafters open to full airflow from the soffit/eave area ot the ridge vent. Second, do NOT run it continuous from eave to eave across the full width of the attic - leave a gap about a foot wide under the ridge vents so warm and moist air in the attic can vent through the ridge vent. Closing the ridge vent area off with the radiant barrier effectively puts a vapor barrier around the main attic area, causing retention of the moisture which WILL accumulate there, promoting mold.

?

Obviously this is not a timely response to the initial question. However, for those who may be reading these answers at a later time, a couple of added thoughts:

1) the radiant barrier being discussed is basically heavy-duty metal foil or metallized surface on a plastic sheet, intended to reflect RADIATED heat (infrared radiation - think heat light, or heat you can feel at a distance radiated from a fireplace), the same way a mirror reflects light. Radiated heat is how a standard oven broils and how steam and hot water baseboard heat predominately work.

2) you generally should do NOT place a radiant barrier over the insulation that lies between and over the joists in a normal attic, especially in a region where the attic temperature can frequently reach condensation temperature (below about 45-50 degrees) - it may reflect back some of the house heat that is coming up from the house, but by destroying most of the temperature gradient from the house to the attic air destroys much of the driving force that moves moisture to the attic air and subsequent venting. Between that greater heat and the fact the barrier is also a moisture barrier, that makes a perfect condition for mold and rot in your insulation and attic wood, and has become quite an issue in energy upgraded homes because of retrofits that cut off airflow outside the insulation, but do not cut off the moisture source leaking thorough from the house. The proper and ONLY place for a vapor barrier in a normal attic insulation system is on the pressurized and normal warm, humid side of the insulation zone - directly above the ceiling drywall in the top floor, fastened to the UNDERSIDE of the ceiling joists or trusses, NOT anywhere above that. Perforated barriers are supposed to reduce this tendency, but the perforation area percentage is so small that typically they still act as a vapor varrier, just not a totally effective one.

3) radiant barriers reflect radiated heat ewith up to 99% efficiency but have basically zero resistance to CONDUCTION (body to body heat transfer at points of contact - think heat transfer from your warm hand to a frozen cold drink can, or hot pavement heat transfer to the bottom of your feet) - so there needs to be an air gap between the radiant barrier and the hot item passing the heat to it, otherwise the heat will just pass through it by conduction. Therefore, applying it directly to the sheathing (above or below) or manufacturing it directly on the surface of the sheathing defeats its purpose, even though this is commonly done.

4) there is a lot of discussion, particularly in the professional design community, about attic radiant heat barrier effectiveness and problems. Because they are being installed on the bottom of the sheathing or underside of roof joists, they act as a heat trap for the energy being conducted through the roof which would normally radiate into the attic air or be transferred by CONVECTION (fluid flow heat transfer) to the attic air, and be vented through roof vents, ridge vents, gable vents, etc. By trapping that heat, they are causing the underside of the shingles and particularly the felt and sheathing to get a lot hotter than they otherside would, essentially changing it from a system where the shingle top surface might reach 120-180 F and the inside surface of the sheathing about 80-140F in the summer, to making the entire roof system equal to the outside surface temperature. This causes more rapid shingle deterioration and cracking, and makes the felt or plastic moisture barrier under the shingles brittle and subject to failure.

Also, any moisture above the radiant barrier (from roof leaks or humid air coming into the area) is prevented from evaporating by the attic airflow which would normally remove it, so it starts acting like a steamer. I have seen both wood and metal lofts and attics become a major mold farm in months because of this effect, and a couple of roofs which started sagging due to rotted sheathing within 2 years of reroofing with tightly adhered radiant barrier. Some radiant barriers are vapor-permeable to reduce the moisture issue, many are not, but few actually are effective in letting moisture freely escape.

Having seen these products in use, and having analyzed and specified building products for use from the Middle East to the Arctic for decades, and having a Masters in Arctic Engineering (a degree predominately in energy conservation and heat flow), my personal opinion is that these radiant barriers will be banned by code within 10-15 years for unheated (so-called "cold" roofs) roofs, because they just do not use the principles of thermodynamics correctly. For more info on this issue Google the following search phrase  - moisture trapping by radiant attic barriers       and read the government (not the manufacturer) literature on the issue.

5) Unfortunately, the right way to handle this issue is to put the radiant surface on the OUTSIDE of the house - by using reflective materials on the roofing material. This is already done with flat roofs, house trailers, and industrial structures by spraying with alumiunum paint, and a few brands offer reflective aggregate shingles that are slightly more reflective and radiant than normal shingles. People obviously do not like this reflective surface from an aesthetic standpoint, though with solar cells coming into more general use this may soon be more widely adopted. The idea should be to keep the solar energy from penetrating into the building envelope at all, not try to re-reflect it away after it has penetrated throguh the roof system.

The sprayed-in foam has a couple of issues you need to be aware of:

6) it needs to be the low-pressure expanding type mixed for use around window frames, as fully expanding foam can bow joists or trusses and pop drywall ceilings free as it expands, and non-expanding foam actually shrinks as it cures, leaving gaps for air and heat flow alongside the ceiling joists.

7) being closed-cell it is essentially impervious to moisture, so the vapor barrier on the house side has to be EXCELLENT (incuding sealingof all penetrations), or it will trap household moisture escaping into the attic and promote mold and rot in the ceiling drywall and joists.

8) it tends to bleed chemical fumes into the house for a long period of time (can be noticeable for years), which may be objectionable to some people from an odor or environmental standpoint, and especially should be considered if any residents have severe allergy issues or respiratory problems.

9) I emphatically recommend AGAINST use of sprayed-in foam between ceiling joists or truss members in any area that can have cold attic air that could cause moisture condensation in the insulation, though this is probably not a significant problem where you live, assuming your Dallas is the city in Texas. For essentially year-around air-conditioned homes in hot climates, the problem can actually be condensation of attic air moisture on and in the colder ceiling surface insulation and on cold attic runs of air conditioned air, so attic ventilation becomes a critical issue to remove the moisture before it condenses.

In summary, having seen an awful lot of attic moisture and thermal problems, my personal recommendation would be to ensure excellent sealing of the house from the attic, use normal UNFACED fiberglass insulation, and instead of a radiant barrier ensure adequate full-attic ventilation. If you decide to got with a radiant barrier, then I would recommend a perforated one, sloping up towards the sides a foot or two and stopping a foot or so clear at the sides so moist air under it can escape to the roof joist spaces and be vented from the attic. I have seen this done several times with a fine nylon net strung above the insulation in the attic, supporting the barrier, resulting in something very similar to the double-roof system used in bedouin tents, where airflow between the two layers keep the hot air away from the living space.

?
Steve made a good point.  Also, while it isn't required to remove the old insulation you can check the ductwork, wiring, etc. with the old stuff removed,  You can also spray foam around all openings and holes in wall top plates to better seal your home as Steve was pointing out.  My concern is the potential for mold spores you mentioned in your question.  If you suspect there are any get a good company in to remove the old and clean the attic.  Another concern is asbestos.  Your home is old enough you could have it in there and that's worse than mold if released into the air.

we've had our sound-proof windows for nearly a year now and couldn't be happier. Before the windows were installed, my sleep was being repeatedly interrupted by sirens, drunk college kids, noisy garbage trucks, etc. The results of the windows were immediate and amazing. I have no doubt that it has increased the value of the property and distinguishes our home from others in the area. One recent morning, I noticed a loose part in the kitchen window. It didn't affect the sound insulation, but it was difficult to keep the window open. I gave
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
a buzz, and he was at our condo and had the window fixed free-of-charge THAT afternoon. He explained the part can come loose when the window is opened too much. While he was over, we also pointed out that in some areas the caulk was cracking, and although this wasn't affecting the sound and was hardly noticeable, it was visible if the windows were inspected closely. He offered to come back with his tools and fix that as well, and indeed he did within the week. He even left us the matching caulk so we could repair it ourselves if needed. I really don't think we could ask for more professional and responsive service than what we have received so far.

They were actually amazing. His crew is reliable, on time, easy to get a hold of, and they are detail oriented. I am very comfortable using this company. If we were to remodel our home again we would definitely use him again. He made sure we knew everything that was going on with our project. I had a vision of what I want and he exceeded our expectations. At the very end of the work, they send someone to clean twice. This is what it means to follow up on a project. I always try to recommend this company to my friends.

They did a great job. With the extent of the work and custom fixtures, it did take a bit longer than we had originally expected it to, but the work done was exceptional! They quickly gutted the existing bathroom, leaving us without a shower for several weeks, but we still had use of the toilet. They lined the path to the bathroom with paper to help minimize the dust and dirt of such a major renovation and kept major equipment and supplies contained on the back deck or in a small section of the kitchen, later removing all of it (including garbage) as part of the well-written contract. They worked with us, changing aspects we didn't like initially, always willing to work with us as our vision for the bathroom changed, even letting us pick out and buy some fixtures (our choice) ourselves. Overall, a very professional team and a job extremely well-done...

We have an 1864 brick row house - 3 stories and a garden level basement. we've been renovating the place incrementally, and this year we were focused on insulation, beginning from the basement up.
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out to provide the estimate and oversee the work. We wanted to replace the front and rear doors to the basement to stop air leakage. This required not only new doors but work on the frames. Replacing the front basement door so that it was air tight required some creativity because there was a floor drain sitting inside the basement behind that door. I wanted the drain moved to be outside and in front of the door at the base of the steps leading to the basement. Sub-contracted masons had to rework the bottom step to move the drain, which meant pouring some new concrete. The masonry work was functional but not particularly pretty.
We also wanted to replace the windows to the back basement wall, which is exposed to the back garden, and insulate the wall. Because there was very little space between the outer brick and the drywall (making it difficult to insulate), we decided to reframe the wall in order to be able to use
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
insulation. As it turned out, this was a good decision because the window casings had to be completely demolished and rebuilt too. We also had them replace the rear basement door leading to the garden.
The other major part of the project was renovating the front entryway to the house. The old entryway was a plain wood structure with a
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
glass transom and a glass stormdoor. We wanted the entryway rebuilt with a decorative facade, a new stormdoor, and installation of a pair of antique, lead stained glass windows that we picked up at a New England Demolition and Salvage in New
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. We weren't sure how they were going to install the stained glass, since the windows were very old and the lead was pretty soft and brittle. They (Rogerio and
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
) did an excellent job on installing the windows and creating the new entryway facade (no small feat because the building itself is a little crooked).
There was quite a bit of other work to the entryway. The last genius who owned this place painted over the brick in the entryway and we wanted that removed. A lot of other contractors that we've talked to wouldn't touch this project, but
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
's guys brought in a high pressure water hose and got almost all of it off. The last big thing in the entryway was the front door itself. It is the original 8 foot tall, quarter sawn oak door (you can see the tiger stripes) with a glass look-through. A lot of damage had been done to the door from repeated changes of locksets, and the entire door needed refinishing because the shellac was peeling.
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
's guys completely refinished (sanding, staining, polyurethane) the entire door and repaired the old lockset holes so that they are invisible. They installed a really nice new lockset that we picked up and the door looks beautiful now - lots of compliments from neighbors.
The whole project took considerably longer than we anticipated. They started the work in October 2012 and didn't finish until February 2013. Part of this was due to unforeseen problems on their end (events which were understandably out of their control), and, of course, winter weather. They were always responsive, but often unable to come to the house on the days originally promised, which required flexibility on our part. In any case, the length of time was the biggest shortcoming. However,
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was consistently responsive whether I called, emailed, or texted. Everyone was very polite and friendly and clean. Overall the work was well done. I wasn't terribly impressed by the sub-contracted masons, but anything done with woodwork was excellent. When I noticed small imperfections,
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his guys made no bones about fixing it to our satisfaction and repeatedly asked how we felt about the work.
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
also was thorough about fixing problems. After finishing the back basement wall, we had a big rainstorm (sideways rain) and I came down to the basement to find a puddle of water in the room leading from the new wall.
Boston Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
surmised that it was likely due to improper caulking on a first story window above the basement, allowing water to run down the inside of the wall. Nevertheless, he reopened the newly finished wall to inspect the insulation and the wall. In addition, he caulked that first story window (not in the contract), and also went out and bought and installed a downspout extension (no charge) to ensure water wasn't soaking the outer wall. He left the wall in the basement open until I was satisfied that water wouldn't come through. Sure enough, we got hit by another big rainstorm shortly after and no water came in.
I will rehire them for future work.
