types of insulation we install to Keep your home comfortable and energy-efficient all year round

loose fill cellulose insulation

Loose fill insulation, which is also known as cellulose, is a form of blown in insulation used in attic floors and other horizontal structural spaces. Cellulose is usually made from recycled newspaper or denim. The manufacturer then sprays the cellulose with a retardant that keeps pests and bugs from burrowing through and making a home. We blow cellulose into an open attic floor or similar spaces.

BEST FOR: ATTICS

BLOWN-IN INSULATION

Blown-in insulation is installed using a machine that blows a paper-like material into the space to be insulated. This type of insulation is often made of cellulose, fiberglass, and rockwool. This type of insulation can conform to fit nearly any type of location.

BEST FOR: ADDING INSULATION TO HORIZONTAL AREAS, AS WELL AS IRREGULARLY SHAPED OR HARD-TO-REACH SPACES

FOAM BOARD OR RIGID FOAM PANELS

If you need to insulate a floor or an unvented low-slope roof, foam boards, and rigid foam panels can get the job done. They reduce the amount of heat that is conducted through the wood, wall studs, and other elements that make up a home’s structure. Foam boards work well to insulate everything from foundation walls and basement walls to unfinished floors and ceilings.

BEST FOR: UNFINISHED WALLS (FOUNDATION WALLS, BASEMENT WALLS, ETC..), FLOORS, AND CEILINGS 

SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

Spray foam insulation will seal leaks and gaps inside existing walls. Liquid polyurethane is sprayed into the cavity of the wall, where it then expands and hardens into a solid foam. Spray foam comes in two constructions. Open-cell foam and denser closed-cell foam. Closed-cell spray foam has one of the highest R-values of any insulation. Open-cell foam insulation values are around R-3.7 per inch thickness. When choosing spray foam to increase the R-value of a home’s insulation, consider calling a professional to do the job, since installation can be trickier than simply aiming and spraying.

BEST FOR: ADDING INSULATION TO EXISTING FINISHED AREAS, AS WELL AS IRREGULARLY SHAPED OR HARD TO REACH SPACES 

ROCKWOOL INSULATION

Rockwool, or mineral wool is made from extruded lava rock, is a great insulation material for typical residential wood-framed structures. This material is made from lava rock which the manufacturer spins at high speeds, creating thin strands of material unlike fiberglass. It insulates against heat transfer and sounds and is also fire and moisture-resistant. Rockwool is more expensive than fiberglass, it typically comes in rolls of batts in pre-cute widths.

BEST FOR: FLOORS, WALLS, AND CEILINGS

BLANKET BATTS AND ROLLS

One of the most standard insulations forms available for walls, blanket batts, and rolls are typically constructed with fiberglass. Fiberglass is a lung and skin irritant. Cutting insulation to the correct size influences its functionality. 

BEST FOR: UNFINISHED WALLS, FLOORS, AND CEILINGS

Frequently Asked Questions About insulation materials

The R-Value measures the insulation’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value the greater the insulation power. R-value is determined by the material type, thickness, and installed weight per square foot and not by thickness alone. 

A professional insulation contractor has the training and experience to focus on energy conservation and comfort. Proper installation is essential for insulation to perform properly. Professional insulation contractors are familiar with local codes and regulations and can offer guidance about the type and amount of insulation to be used. 

R-value recommendations for each climate zone are different depending on the area. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends home insulation R-values based on the location of your home.
