Maximizing Home Insulation: Complete Envelope Solutions from Mighton Construction Limited

Welcome to Mighton Construction Limited's Expert Insights!


In our continuous pursuit of building better, more energy-efficient homes, understanding and implementing comprehensive insulation is key. At Mighton Construction Limited, we're committed to not just meeting but exceeding the latest building code requirements for insulation. In this post, we'll dive into the importance of insulating the complete envelope of your home – from the floors to the walls, right up to the attic.

Understanding the Complete Envelope of Your Home


The Foundation: Insulating Your Floors Insulation often begins from the ground up. Insulating your floors, especially in homes with basements or crawl spaces, can significantly reduce heat loss. This step is not just about comfort; it's about creating an energy-efficient foundation for your home.


The Barrier: Wall Insulation Techniques Walls are the barriers between the comfort of your interior and the varying temperatures outside. With the latest insulation techniques and materials, we ensure that your walls are not just barriers but effective shields against energy loss.


The Cap: Attic Insulation Heat rises, and a poorly insulated attic is like leaving a window open all year round. Proper attic insulation is crucial for maintaining a consistent temperature throughout your home, enhancing energy efficiency, and reducing heating and cooling costs.

Exterior Insulation: Ideal for New Constructions and Renovations


When building new or replacing siding, considering exterior insulation is a wise decision. Exterior insulation goes hand-in-hand with siding replacement, providing an excellent opportunity to improve your home’s thermal performance. This approach not only adds an extra layer of thermal protection but also helps in minimizing thermal bridging - where heat bypasses insulation through more conductive materials.


Exterior insulation, especially when combined with high R-value materials, can significantly enhance the energy efficiency of your home. It provides a continuous insulation layer that covers all aspects of the building envelope, ensuring that there are no gaps or weak points. This method is particularly beneficial in new constructions and major renovations, where it can be integrated seamlessly into the building process


Aligning with the Latest Building Codes


Up-to-Date Standards Building codes are continually evolving, focusing more on energy efficiency. Our team at Mighton Construction Limited stays ahead of these changes, ensuring that your home not only meets but exceeds these standards. This commitment not only future-proofs your home but also reduces your environmental footprint. For instance, in attics, we've upgraded our insulation approach to meet the new R-60 standard, significantly higher than the previous R-50 requirement. This enhancement is crucial for reducing energy loss, especially in colder climates such as ours.
