Installs in 3 easy steps.
The attic cover is a simple product to install and only needs a few standard supplies and about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. The products we recommend are a hand held staple gun with 3/8" or 1/2" staples and silicone to caulk the attic cover to the framing.
Open the attic cover and place the Attic Seal an inch down into the rough opening. There is also black band inside the Attic Seal that is about 1" inch thick. This band can be a guide to help determine how far down into the rough opening the cover should be stapled. This black band is also the location you staple the cover inside the rough opening to keep it in place.
*Note: The Opening where the 2 zippers come together should be at the top of the attic stairs.
Inside the Attic Seal you will find a thick black band at the bottom inside of the attic cover. Place your staples into this band the help keep the product in place.
Before stapling all sides of the attic cover make sure you have the attic cover in the correct position and start by placing one staple in ever corner of the cover. If you need to adjust the attic cover remove the staples and reposition. When you have the cover in the desired location staple the attic cover to the inside of the rough frame about every 1 to 2 inches around the entire skirt of the attic cover. The Opening where the 2 zippers come together should be at the top of the attic stairs.
Place the tip of the silicone caulk between the attic cover and the frame. Caulk the attic cover to the framing using a good continuous thick bead. You may also need to caulk or foam the corners around the frame. This will increase the air seal from the Attic Seal.
You have now insulated and created an air barrier around your attic entrance.
Extra Install Tip
To help create even a better seal, apply expanding foam in the cavity between the attic staircase and the rough frame.
