Loosing your grip in the attic. Is there a better way?
There I was in an attic at a recent home inspection and the insulation was waving at me.
At desert sun Home inspections we really try hard to find everything we can when it comes to inspecting every part of the home that's accessible for review and inspection.
When I entered this attic in a home built in 2010 and yes this is the rental home of the builder that had not sold it. We can't blame these issues on the renters. These are issues that are one unto them selves.
Remember everything is "out of sight and out of mind, till the inspector shows up to inspect the home".
When inspection the attic on this home I did find a lot of insulation falling from the joists.
As you can see when you look back further and further in the attic, there is the same problem deep in the attic.
Here we have more of the same. The contractor tried to use staples to install the insulation but the staples had failed.
I have never been a fan of a double insulated attic.
And the stapling of the batts that are going to be hanging there upside down.
My install would have used insulation supports or strapping for the supports.
Do you have a better way of installing insulation in the attics? Let me know and leave a comment please.
Have a great day everyone.
