to the top, only requiring a few screws and a screwdriver, but it ensures the door will return to the big hole in the wall, not only conserving your conditioned air but keeping out bugs, too. ATTIC NEEDS ATTENTION So far, so good. While examin- ing the house, I’d only encoun- tered minor issues in need of sim- ple repairs … until I climbed into the attic. A home inspector had recently reported that the insula- tion to this house was compressed in the attic, but I was shocked to see just how little insulation was to be found and how poorly it was distributed across the floor. My guess, based on the crude plywood subfloor in parts of the attic, is that the previous homeowner had used the attic for storage—maybe stored bins of clothes that served as insulation but also smashed
The attic didn’t have near enough insulation, and what it did have was very compressed.
We decided to supplement the existing insulation with unfaced rolls and loose-fill cellulose.
I broke up the compressed cellulose material when installing it by hand.
