Our attic experts create an air barrier for optimum home comfort
Making a house as airtight and well-insulated as possible is essential to cutting heating and cooling costs. This sealing and insulating priority are more important in the attic than anywhere else in the house. The SuperAttic system from Pipe Works Services overcomes the limitations of other attic energy upgrades, offering superior energy performance throughout the year as well as a neater, cleaner appearance and more usable attic space.
The top of the house is a high priority when improving a home’s energy performance. This specialized attic insulation system eliminates the shortcomings of conventional attic sealing and insulating strategies, resulting in a clean, open, and accessible attic space that’s super energy efficient.

What is the SuperAttic system and how does it work?
The SuperAttic system utilizes proprietary SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation panels to fully seal and insulate the attic directly beneath the roof rafters and inside the gable ends. The SuperAttic system creates a continuous barrier without thermal bridging to compromise energy performance. SuperAttic maintains roof ventilation without allowing exterior air to enter the attic space. As an added benefit, SilverGlo™ insulation panels include an integral radiant barrier that further reduces heating and cooling costs.
Installing a SuperAttic system in a typical house usually takes just a day or two. Unlike conventional attic insulation and sealing upgrades, the SuperAttic system allows attic flooring and storage areas to remain in place, eliminating the need to tear out flooring material and relocate stored items.
- Continuous layer of insulation without thermal bridging to compromise energy performance
- SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation will not shrink or reduce the R-value like other types of rigid insulation
- Superior air-sealing performance eliminates energy-wasting leaks at the top of the house
- SilverGlo™ has an integral radiant barrier to reflect summer heat out and winter heat back in
- Roof ventilation is maintained, but outside air is kept outside of the attic space
- Excellent protection against ice damming
Is the SuperAttic system a smart choice for my house?
The SuperAttic system can help many homeowners save energy and cut heating and cooling expenses. But it’s more suitable for some attics than for others.
- I’d like to upgrade attic insulation levels so that I can save energy and money, and also make my house more comfortable.
- I have ductwork and other HVAC equipment (like air handlers) in my attic.
- My attic is framed with rafters and a ridge board, not with roof trusses.
- Parts of my attic are floored.
- I’d like to use some of my attic space for storage.
- I’m concerned about ice dams forming along the eaves of my roof in wintertime.
If more than two of the statements above apply to you and your house, a SuperAttic system could be a smart investment.
How was the SuperAttic system invented?
Building scientists, the experts who study how buildings use and lose energy, have for years known that the Stack Effect causes houses to lose more energy through the attic than anywhere else. Inside the house, warm air rises naturally by convection, leaking into the attic through numerous gaps, cracks, and passageways. Air leaking out of the house causes an equal volume of outside air to be drawn into the house through leaks in lower areas. With conditioned air leaking out of the house and unconditioned air leaking in, you’re wasting energy and money 24 hours a day.
Sealing leaks in the attic floor can short-circuit the Stack Effect, but it’s usually impossible to do this effectively. There are simply too many leaks and too many obstacles like existing home insulation, ductwork, and attic flooring, so air leakage and energy losses continue.
Blowing additional fiberglass or cellulose insulation into the attic will reduce energy losses, but the effectiveness of this added insulation is compromised by gaps around recessed light fixtures, HVAC components,Start saving energy and money with a SuperAttic upgrade
