how do i properly insulate a "one and a half" story house's attic?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

My house is considered "one and a half" stories - in other words, the second floor living space is built into the eaves. It's the middle of winter in upstate NY and I have tremendous amounts of icicles built up, and I'd like to stop this from happening. I have no soffet vents (but do have 2 gable vents) and about 4 inches of wool insulation in the crawl space. How can I properly insulate/ventilate?

Working with a contractor that is well-experienced in insulation for your particular 4 seasons in terms of temp and humidity will definitely be worth your time. Sears home services is available to give free consultations/estimates - simply call 1-877-587-3055.

Insulation expenses are often tax deductible thanks to energy star and green tax credits - a link below is attached and you may want to factor that when deciding on the types of materials used.
