Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is a high-performance insulating material. For many professionals, it’s the go-to insulation for both home retrofits and new construction. Unlike other insulation systems, spray foam is flexible and can be installed virtually anywhere.

However, this premium product’s cost is more expensive than other insulation options and might not fit all family budgets.

Blown-In Insulation

Blown-in insulation is the most common type of insulation used in homes. Its loose-fill material can easily fill air leaks and fit in the attic’s hard-to-reach areas. Unfortunately, this insulation becomes very troublesome when it gets wet.

If you’re considering blown-in insulation, it is wise to let Weatherization Plus inspect your home first. Our specialists will assess the condition of your property to determine whether this insulating option is the best fit for your situation.

Blown Fiberglass Insulation

Blown fiberglass is one of the most affordable insulation options available. It installs quickly, requires little to no maintenance, and can be added to underperforming insulating systems. In order to experience the full benefits of blown fiberglass, it’s crucial to let Weatherization Plus handle the installation. Our procedures will ensure that the insulating material is properly packed properly and seals any potential air or water leaks.

Cellulose Insulation

Another popular blown-in material is cellulose. Cellulose is an environmentally friendly alternative to fiberglass because it is made from recycled paper. It’s also fire retardant and unpalatable to insects, making it a long-lasting insulating material.

Rockwool Insulation

Rockwool insulation is made of basalt rock and chalk that is heated to very high temperatures and then spun like cotton candy. It has superior insulating and soundproofing qualities and doesn’t settle over time. This means it doesn’t lose its R-value as it ages. Rockwool is also dust-free, water resistant and fireproof. Like the other blown-in insulation products we carry, rockwool can also be dense-packed into cavities. And remember, compromised insulation should be removed or extracted prior to new insulation being installed so as not to cover up the underlying causes of your home comfort issues. Air sealing and insulation should always go hand-in-hand.

Radiant Barrier Insulation

Radiant barrier insulation is a special type of insulating system that uses reflective technology to block heat energy. It’s lightweight, non-toxic, and very effective in warm climates. Unfortunately, the radiant barrier isn’t as flexible as other materials. It tends to work best in the attic.

Rigid Foam Insulation

Rigid foam insulation is a popular choice for insulating building exteriors, crawl spaces and foundations. It offers a higher R-value compared to loose-fill insulation. However, this insulating material is sensitive to sunlight. Ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the foam plastic boards. To avoid this problem, it’s important that the rigid foam is installed properly and used in the proper location.
