Attic Top Plate

Floor / Wall Junctures

Symptom:

Air infiltration along the top wall plate at edge of the attic causes heating/cooling loss and adds energy expense.

Solution:

Spray insulating foam sealant to cover edges of wall plate where it meets attic floor and joists to stop air infiltration, block pests and reduce energy costs.

HVAC / Electrical Penetrations

Heating and air conditioning ducts in attics penetrate living areas, creating gaps around duct boots and grill plates that result in unwanted air infiltration.

Solution:

Spray foam sealant around HVAC boots where they penetrate the drywall below. Also, spray foam where flexible ducts connect to the penetrating boot.
