Attic insulation - is this quote fair?
An attic insulation company showed up at my door. They inspected my attic and told me that the insulation is not enough; its R value is R14. I should add 16 inches of insulation. The are quoting me $2145 before tax for the following.
1. R-56 blown cellulose insulation of 16 inches. The attic area is 660sq ft. so the rate is $3.25/sq foot. Climatizer brand cellulose.
2. They will install / extend baffles
3. Extend the hatch height
4. These modifications would save me 45% in my energy bill
Is the installation rate reasonable?
Can this be done DIY?
If I were going to use the company, what other things should I be mindful of.
Almost all problems in our lives can be traced back to a lack of knowledge.
