ducts-in-atticDuct sealing is a professional service that closes up gaps and leaks along the ductwork of a home’s ventilation system. And we have to emphasize professional: this isn’t a job an amateur can handle with a roll of duct tape. Duct tape isn’t even designed to work on ducts and won’t work at creating lasting seals. Professionals must use special equipment to find all the leaks and then use sealants and metallic tapes to restore the airtight seal along the ductwork.
