Types of Insulation Materials

We can fullfill every insulation project you can imagine!

Most Common Types of Insulation Materials

Spray Foam, Cellulose, Fiberglass, and Rigid Foam

By simply installing adequate insulation and repairing your home's interior and exterior surfaces, you can reduce your energy bills by as much as 30%. We'll customize a plan to suit your needs.

Cellulose Insulation

R-Value- 3.8 per inch

There are many advantages to cellulose insulation, one of which is that after shredded and treated they will not be flammable or combustible and also resistant to mold. Installing it is also pretty simple: all you need to do is spread newspapers around your walls, then blow the mixture of paper fiber and boron up into the ceiling cavity, leaving a one-inch gap between the ceiling and the insulation.

Fiberglass Batts

R-Value: 3.2-3.8 per inch

Fiberglass batts come in different dimensions but still provide insulation. Loose-fill insulation is more prone to shifting around, so it's probably best not to use it in areas where you will be working. I would recommend using fiberglass batts because they are easier to move around and can stay put when needed. You'll need to invest a lot of time and effort in designing and installing the batt insulation correctly. It may also be hard for you to ensure that it has maximum energy efficiency.

Rigid Foam

R-Value: 3.8-8.7 per inch.

Rigid foam can be cut to size and thickness, ready-to-use. The most popular types of rigid foam are Extruded Polystyrene, Expanded Polystyrene, and Polyurethane. Polyurethane has the highest R-Value as insulation. In some foam boards, there are foil coverings that also act as a radiant barrier. In most cases, rigid foam installation takes place in new structures. It can also be used for home upgrades only if it is accurately fit and cut to size. Spray foam is often used to fill up cracks in rigid foam.

Spray Foam

R-Value: 6-7 per inch

Spray foam is sprayed out of a "can" and it's super sticky. But it does a great job at insulating. The pros of this type of insulation is that it seals things off really well. Spray foam can fill up any gaps or cracks in your insulation so that warmth or cold doesn't escape out of the building. Having foam insulation is better than other types because it can fill in these areas and stop heat from escaping.

When it comes to blowing insulation, there are a few extra steps you need to take. You should always be careful not to block the soffit vents on the overhangs of your structure. These vents keep hot air from building up in the attic and they need a clear path for airflow.

Fiberglass-Loose-Fill

R-Value: 3.4 per inch

If you're looking for the same benefits as the well-known fiberglass sheets but in a porous and lightweight fill, we offer loose fill. Loose-fill is made with the same fiberglass and installs through a blower.

The Windbreaker Effect

A thick jacket might protect you from the cold, but a windbreaker will help ease the effects of the wind. A thin layer can help protect against the harshest elements, such as air-sealing that can keep warm or cool air inside your home. Perhaps the best thing about these methods is that they are very energy efficient. The use of insulation and air sealing reduces energy loss.
