Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is applied wet and expands into thick foam that fits snugly in wall cavities, crevices, and gaps—therefore, it can be installed in hard-to-reach areas and around piping and wiring.
Spray foam insulation is also extremely energy-efficient. It fits perfectly in wall cavities, small crevices, tiny gaps, etc. and can act as an air sealing solution.
Fiberglass has been used to insulate structures for decades and we install both batt and blown-in fiberglass. This type of insulation is made of tiny glass fibers and is often installed in attics but can be used to insulate walls and crawl spaces as well.
Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newsprint and other recycled paper. Consisting of up to 85 percent recycled content and requiring less energy to make than other types of insulation, it’s one of the most environmentally friendly insulation materials available.
