Energy-Efficient Attic Insulation Makes an Excellent Addition to Homes in St. Louis, MO; Edwardsville, IL; Glen Carbon, IL; O’Fallon, IL & Other Communities in Missouri & Illinois
Attic insulation isn’t always at the forefront of homeowners’ minds, but it can make a huge difference in a home’s energy efficiency. In fact, the average home experiences most of its heat transfer via the attic, by virtue of its position on top of the home where heat rises and escapes, or heat enters as the sun beats down on the roof. If you have noticed that your home is particularly cold in the winter and warm during the summer, or if you have been racking up high energy bills just to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, then it might be time to replace or upgrade your attic insulation. Mattea Construction is here to make the process smoother for you, whether you’re in St. Louis, MO, or any surrounding area of Missouri or Illinois, including Glen Carbon, Edwardsville, and O’Fallon, IL. We have performed home improvement services of all kinds for years, and we have been a respected local home builder since the late 1940s, giving us the knowledgeable background you want in an attic insulation installer.
When we outfit a home with attic insulation, we take every precaution to ensure that the job is done properly. For example, if you have an air leak, we can detect and seal it properly. Moreover, we use some of the most effective insulation products on the market today. Our trained experts can install any of the following products:
- Radiant barrier – Our foil barrier reflects radiant heat from the sun, which typical insulation doesn’t address. Plus, the 99 percent pure aluminum layers of our foil insulation surround a one-quarter inch fiberglass core, providing you with the ultimate combination of insulating materials in one tidy, space-saving product.
- Blown-in fiberglass insulation – This is the most common type of insulation and is found in attics all over the country. Our blown-in method of fiberglass insulation installation helps ensure that we cover all the nooks and crannies of your attic.
- Solar attic fans – This upgrade is useful with any combination of insulation because it serves as a vent actively removing heat and moisture from the attic.

We can also replace other items that affect your home’s energy efficiency, including your windows, siding, and roofing.
