Choosing the Best Insulation for Your Home

We understand that the world of insulation can be a bit tricky for the average homeowner. We would like to focus on the three most common types of insulation. With this list, we hope to help you choose the best insulation method for your needs!

Spray Foam Insulation

• Air and watertight seal
• Improves indoor air quality
• Does not settle or sag
• Environmentally friendly
• Home energy efficiency is ensured, lowering seasonal energy bills
• Longer lifespan than other products
• Has the highest R-value and does not lose R-value over time
• All awkward spaces are sealed up
• Pays for itself over time


Cellulose Insulation

• Fills cavities effectively
• Can be as loose or as dense as needed
• Environmentally friendly (made of up to 85% recycled content (mainly newspaper) and uses a minimal amount of energy to produce)
• Does not break down or deteriorate chemically
• Does not lose R-value in extreme outside temperatures
• No health concerns
• More affordable



Fiberglass Insulation

• Commonly available
• Easy installation
• Naturally fire-resistant (commonly made from combined fibers of plastic polymers, tiny glass fibers
