Closet Organization Tips

Whether you’re remodeling your home or just want to organize your space, your closet has a lot of potential. Have a lot of old clothes and shoes in your closet that are cluttering the space? After deciding what should stay and what needs to go, it’s time for the fun part!

Do You Need More Attic Insulation?

As one of the biggest sources of energy loss, the attic is an important place to insulate. Do you have enough attic insulation? If you don’t, or you aren’t sure, it’s time to call a local insulation company. Why wait? It’s summertime and you’re probably looking for ways to lower your cooling bill! Insulation is one of the best ways to gain long-term energy savings

How Much Does Insulation Save?

The main reasons most people install insulation are the high energy efficiency and savings it offers. The best answer to “how much does insulation save?” is “it depends.” Exact estimates are hard to make, but there are tools online that can help you figure out approximately how much money you can save by insulating—and of course, you can always talk to a local insulation company

When to Replace Gutters

It’s that time of year again—the flowers are blooming and temperatures are nice, but springtime also means it’s time to inspect your gutters! Ideally, you should inspect them twice a year, in the spring and once again in the fall.

Not only do old gutters look bad, but they also can undermine your energy efficiency efforts by increasing the risk of basement leaks and other moisture issues. Gutters are an important part of your roofing, helping protect your home against leaking, foundation problems, mold growth and more. This is why timely gutter replacement is essential!

An insulation company like ThermaSeal / Lakeside Insulation will be able to set you straight on the difference between new construction insulation and retrofit insulation.

Insulation in New Homes

Are you building a new home? You’ve probably thought of all the exciting things such as countertops, furniture, windows, etc. Insulation, while not as exciting, is one of the most important parts of building a new home.

How to Tell When it’s Time to Re-Insulate
