Attic Insulation San Antonio
Insulation can improve temperature control and lower your energy usage when installed almost anywhere in your home or commercial building. However, it is imperative to have reliable insulation in your attic. Attics are a place where air leaks often hide, whether they’re finished or unfinished.
Because of this, you need to choose a reliable insulation contractor to install new attic insulation or retrofit your existing insulation if it’s seen better days.

Our Attic Insulation Services
Since insulation is so crucial for attic spaces, it makes sense that many different types of insulation are common in these settings. However, not every kind of insulation is suitable for every attic. It can be challenging for people without experience to understand what they need from their attic insulation, so you’ll want to work with the pros at SATX Spray Foam Insulation for this project.
Some of the most common types of attic insulation we install are:
Spray Foam Attic Insulation
SATX is highly skilled at installing the spray foam San Antonio residents rely on. This insulation type is excellent for use in attics - after we spray it on, it will expand to fill any air leaks.
Our team can install both open-cell and closed-cell spray foam insulation. We recommend the former type for attic roofs. That’s because closed-cell foam is so dense that it’s not water-permeable - which could result in trapped moisture as a result of any water leakage. Fortunately, this isn’t an issue with open-cell spray foam insulation.
Blown-In Attic Insulation
This type of insulation involves loosely-packed insulation materials like fiberglass, rock wool, or cellulose. Using specialized equipment, we blow these materials into your attic space.
Blown-in insulation is most commonly used to insulate attic floors. In most cases, you’ll want to use it in combination with one or more other insulation types to keep your attic ceilings and walls insulated.
Batt Attic Insulation
Batts are one of two common insulation types that are essentially fiberglass “blankets.” In the case of batt insulation, these blankets take the form of preformed panels.
Batt insulation sections fit perfectly between most wall framing sections. They’re also well-known for insulating attic floors and ceilings.
Attic Insulation Rolls
This insulation type is similar to batt insulation, with a few crucial differences. Most notably, our employees will roll out insulation rolls to fit the surface they’re installing insulation on.
Homeowners can use insulation rolls in many of the same settings as batt insulation. If you’re unsure which of these insulation types is best for you, the team at SATX will be happy to help!
The Importance of Attic Roof Insulation
In the average home, attics are a significant contributor to heat loss. That’s because most homes have under-insulated attics. Because of that, air leaks can have a notable impact on attic temperatures, leaving them either freezing cold or unbearably hot.
Does this sound familiar? If so, your attic’s insulation (or lack thereof) is probably to blame. Homeowners should double-check their attics to make sure all of these spaces are adequately insulated:
- Floor joists (in unfinished attics)
- Attic doors
- Between wall studs
- Between studs and rafters
If you’re unsure whether or not these parts of your attic are fully insulated, there’s a good chance that they aren’t. Start the process of remedying this situation by giving SATX a call!
When should I have attic insulation replaced?
We would encourage you to have more insulation installed on top of your existing insulation in most cases. Still, there are quite a few situations where the insulation currently in place can create health risks. We can remove and replace:
- Insulation that contains asbestos
- Insulation contributing to dust buildup
- Insulation that has been nested in by animals
- Insulation affected by mold growth
- Insulation containing materials you or someone else in your building are allergic to
How much insulation does my attic need?
This is a tricky insulation question to answer, as our advice will vary significantly based on your current situation. In any case, the best option for San Antonio homeowners is to contact SATX. We can inspect your attic and provide a more accurate assessment of your insulation needs.
Does attic insulation have any perks beyond temperature control?
Of course! Insulation can improve your building’s energy efficiency, prevent mold growth, and help with soundproofing.
What is the “R-value” of attic insulation?
An insulation product’s R-value refers to its ability to resist the flow of heat. Insulation with a higher R-value can more effectively keep temperatures in a given space under control.
Can I install attic insulation myself?
Unless you already have experience working with insulation, we wouldn’t recommend doing this. One of the most common insulation materials, fiberglass, can cause health problems if you don’t take the proper precautions while installing it. Meanwhile, blown-in insulation relies on specialized air blowers, making it infeasible as a DIY project.
Instead of trying to do it yourself, it’s best to save time and reduce risks by calling SATX Spray Foam Insulation. We can also help keep your installation costs to the bare minimum!
