Home insulation is one of the most important parts to any home construction project no matter where you live or where you’re building. It is the barrier that separates the outside environment from your living area that you want to keep at a certain temperature. Insulation has been used in construction for thousands of years dating back to the cave men insulating their huts with her and leaves. Today it is equally important to make sure that we are not wasteful and how much we spend on heating and cooling our home.

Insulation can come in many different ways I can be applied with various methods. Some of the most common methods are spray foam insulation, cellulose insulation, and also fiberglass batts. For new construction the best way to insulate a home is by choosing to go either with open cell or closed cell spray foam insulation. The benefits of using spray foam is that it is able to provide a uniform coverage and also air seal any gaps or holes that might be present during construction process of the house. The negative spray foam insulation is that it is very expensive to put in and also that it might carry some chemicals that are not safe during the installation services.
For residential homes that are a bit older our company chooses to use cellulose insulation. Some of the greatest benefits of cellulose insulation are that it is fire resistant, fireproof, and in many cases it even works as soundproofing material. Also it is best for old attics where the roof is pitched really low and the axis is limited for the workers. But the biggest reason why our companies favorites insulation is cellulose due to the fact that it is made out of recycled material which helps the environment. And lastly it is less expensive to choose cellulose that it is to go with the alternate spray foam services
