    "The house absolutely glows with a new-found beauty. Tom is a genius in his ability to coordinate the work done to my home. In between many raindrops, he managed to get the painting done in a few days and have Mike, the roofer, and his crew tear off and replace the shingles and wood in two days time. And even though I'm on the west side, Tom was able to catch me before I left for work around 8:00 a.m. Your company has really boosted the resale value of my house. I plan to engage you again for interior work in the coming years. Thank you for a job well done!"

    The Importance Of Insulation

    The insulation throughout your home is one of the key determining factors as to how much heated and cooled air will remain inside. That’s because insulation is specifically designed to resist heat. And heat is naturally attracted to cooler air, no matter the season. Here’s what happens:

    During summer, insulation will resist the movement of heat from the outside, so that your home’s cooling load doesn’t increase, causing your air conditioner to work longer and harder, and thereby consuming more energy and raising cooling costs.During winter, insulation resists the movement of heat from within the house, keeping more heat inside, which reduces the heating load of the home and energy bills.

    Attic Insulation

    Attic insulation is a key area that homeowners can focus on when improving whole-house energy efficiency. That's because it's easy for a contractor to access, and upgrading insulation there can greatly reduce energy consumption.

    Upgrading attic insulation will immediately offer three significant benefits:

    Improving energy efficiency and savings on cooling/heating bills.Increasing the value of your home. Boosting home comfort.
