Insulation Types

Insulation Services and Energy Solutions

When it comes to your home, we understand that comfort and energy efficiency are important. We have several insulation options to choose from that will benefit your family for years to come.  Among those options are:

Spray Foam

Spray foam also called Polyurethane Foam tightly seals wall cavities, ceilings or floors and creates an insulation barrier that halts air leakage. Your home in turn will be comfortable, all the while lowering your energy costs. Additionally, your structural strength will improve. No need to worry about sagging insulation or materials falling out of place with this option.

Foam Board Insulation

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is the most versatile of the three rigid insulation options, EPS is used in Roof, Wall, Floor, and Below Grade applications. It has the highest R-value per dollar of all foam boards. (R-4.6/inch)

Extruded polystyrene (XPS) is most commonly used in walls and below grade applications. It falls in the middle of the three both in terms of cost and R-value. (R-5/inch)

Polyisocyanurate (Polyisco, ISO) is most often used in roofing applications where a high R-value is needed in a small space. It’s also the most expensive of the three options. (R-7/inch)

Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass insulation can be blown in or installed by rolling out batts of insulation. Blown fiberglass is a great product to use in attics or finished walls since the small particles fill evenly around utilities. When dense packed into walls, fiberglass can effectively reduce drafts that are caused by air infiltration.

Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation works in three ways. First, cellulose is installed to prevent heat loss through the ceiling. Secondly, cellulose is inserted into wall cavities, serving as insulation. Finally, if you have brick walls, we will install cellulose by drilling a hole in the mortar joint and mortar the hole upon completion.

R-Value:

What does R-value mean? R-value is a measure of resistance to heat flow through a given thickness of material. The higher the R-value, the greater that resistance. For a better understanding of these factors, check out the following link: https://www.energystar.gov/insulation

Insulation Service Testimonials

Wall insulation, existing home:

“I was satisfied with the whole process, and my electric bill was $100 cheaper. Cold spots and drafts are gone.”  (Sarah B.)

Attic insulation, existing home:

“I have a thermostat that tracks furnace usage. My furnace is running 32% less than before insulation. They did do a great job of insulating. I would recommend it to anyone that is wanting a high quality insulation.”   (Tom F.)

Crawl space, existing home:

“We had moisture accumulating in our crawl space with mold growth on the ceiling. Jeff came out and gave us a quote to insulate the walls and install a vapor barrier on the ground to stop the moisture. The crew showed up on time and they put down drop cloths to protect our white carpet. I’m really happy with my new crawl space.”  (Steve S.)
