Persistent squirrels caused these homeowners to reach out to Bearded Brothers initially. They knew their roof was old and probably needed to be replaced, and they had an ongoing issue with squirrels chewing their way into the attic and nesting in there.
Upon our inspection, we found that not only was the roof damaged and needing replacement, but their attic only had about 3″ of insulation – putting their insulation value at around an R-8. The deterioration of their insulation was causing their upstairs to become overly hot.
This home also had vinyl siding that was dated and damaged. The owners decided that while they were replacing their roof and fascia, and to prevent future squirrel infestations, to replace all the siding as well.
When we removed the vinyl siding we found that the original siding was rotted out in multiple places and irreparable.
To keep the original appearance of the home, we replaced the damaged sections. We then used hardy board for their fascia so that the squirrels could not longer chew through to find a nesting ground in the attic.
These homeowners love to stand out and appreciate bold colors, so they chose a happy blue and white trim combo for their updated home makeover!
We removed the old cellulose insulation and installed Atti-Cat Blown-In Insulation to bring the total R-value of the attic to R-60.
The roof was replaced and new gutters with gutter guards installed.
These homeowners were exceptionally happy with the end result. Not only did their house receive a face-lift, but it is now more structurally sound as well!
