  • Under-insulated
    Compression of common insulation or improperly-fitted batts in soffit area lowers R-value.
  • Wind-washing
    Air movement through air-permeable insulation lowers R-value up to 50% or more
  • Ice-Damming
    Reduced R-values causes melting of snow and re-freezing into ice, which blocks proper drainage, and potentially leading to extensive damage.
