Summers in Dallas can be brutal. If you've ever been in your attic or on the roof during the heat of the day, you know that the heat from the sun can easily push temperatures in those spaces over 100 degrees.
Radiant barrier, sometimes referred to as foil radiant barrier or reflective insulation, is a powerful protectant against heat from the sun. A radiant barrier works as a reflective surface on the underside of the roof, reflecting heat as it transmits from your roof into the attic. Trapping the heat between the barrier and your roof allows the heat to rise and leave through your roof vents.
When you block the heat from the sun and allow it to escape through your roof vent, you reduce attic temperatures by up to 30-degrees. This reduction means that your HVAC system will have to cycle on less frequently, meaning less wear-and-tear on the system and lower energy bills.
Radiant barriers attach to the joists of your roof, leaving you plenty of walking and storage space in the attic.

Yes! While radiant barriers reflect heat from the sun, it doesn't seal your attic like other insulation products. Either blown-in insulation or spray foam insulation can help with this.
No. A radiant barrier does not affect your cell phone or TV signal strength.

"Superior Attic came out to install insulation and radiant barrier in my home. Although we had a few issues that came up, I have to say it’s obvious that Jonathan cares more for the customer and their satisfaction than he does for his margins. He was on it with quickness and personally ensured everything was taken care of to my liking. The job turned out great and the customer service even better. Great Job!" - Ryan G.
"Jonathan explained in detail the process involved to remove the old insulation and sanitize it and spray foam around all the electrical boxes and A/C vents and put the radiant barrier up. Blake replaced the rood vents with a nice solar powered attic fan. They blew new insulation in my attic; within the first day I could already feel a temperature difference in my house. Blake and his crew did a great job. They were professional and provided good customer service. I highly recommend their service." - Michael B.
