Attic Super Deck surrounded by Blown in Cellulose Insulation
The complete “Attic Super Deck” is an innovative solution that air seals and insulates the top of your home while providing the maximum space possible. First, major air leaks and leaks along exterior walls are sealed with expanding polyurethane foam. Secondly, foam blocking is installed between joists. If the ceiling joist cavities are not filled with insulation, cellulose is used to fill them. Soffit baffles are installed as necessary to keep loose insulation out of the soffits. Then wood dams are installed as shown to contain loose insulation installed on the outboard side of the Super Deck. SilverGlo™ board foam is installed across the bulk of your attic floor and sealed to provide superior R-value. Finally, wood sheets are installed with special long screws to provide insulated storage decking. Results - a much warmer, more comfortable home, lower fuel and electric bills, home easier to heat and cool, lots of attic storage.
