HOME INSULATION

NEW CONSTRUCTION AND RETROFIT HOMES

Properly insulating a new home or remodel is critical to comfort. Poorly designed or installed insulation packages can lead to cold spots, moisture problems, and higher energy bills.  Insulation can pay for itself within a few years, and then continue to save you money for as long as you own your home. It can even add to the resale value of your home. The International Energy Conservation Code requires new homes follow guidelines for window and door U-values, furnace efficiency, insulation levels and more. Our installations are compliant with all national and local building codes.  Builders offers Free no-obligation quotes and inspections!

INSULATION SELECTION

WHAT WE OFFER

#1 Selling Insulation

Ultra Fit DS Plus Spray-On

Insulation conforms to all shapes and sizes of wall cavities and fills in and around all wall obstructions. Provides maximum insulating effect with a seamless, efficient blanket that offers an R-15 rating in a 2 x 4 wall, and an amazing R-24 in a 2 x 6 wall cavity. Typically adds 2-3 times more fiberglass in the walls!

Closed Cell Foam Spray-On

Insulation is an all-in-one air sealing system designed to solve extreme insulation requirements. Appropriate for whole house applications it has a high R-value that minimizes hot and cold spots to improving efficiency and comfort. The rigidity provides added structural integrity to walls and also acts as a secondary moisture vapor barrier, reducing the risk of moisture intrusion in the wall cavity. Leaves no gaps or voids as it expands!

Loose-Fill or Blown-In

 Insulation is used with a machine that grinds up fibers and blows them into place. Builders installs two types of loose fill:

Fiberglass loose-fill is derived from the same material as blanket insulation. It is typically blown into attics, often over the top of existing insulation. Builders uses AtticGuard Plus insulation. 

Cellulose loose-fill is made of recycled paper fiber with a flame-retardant additive. It is typically blown into attics and walls, often over the top of existing insulation. 

Batted Fiberglass

Insulation is recommended for insulating walls between heated and unheated areas.  Can be unfaced or faced with kraft paper or foil. Made from mineral substances processed from a molten state to an incombustible fibrous form.

R-Value Information

Insulation is specified by its thermal resistance or R-Value. “R” meaning the resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the greater insulation power. 

The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on climate, type of heating (gas, oil, electric) you use, and the area of the house you plan to insulate.
