We look for is the penetrations there were caused by the plumbers and electricians or even sometimes a homeowners trying to install various cables and wires inside the walls. When we locate these holes we filled in with spray foam in order to make sure that no air leaks out of. We repeat the process throughout the entire attic thoroughly making sure that we do not like any penetrations in your attic flooring.
