fibreglass friction fit insulation
Fiberglass insulation or blanket insulation comes in sheets made of fiberglass, mineral wool, cotton, and other natural fibers. They are available in widths to fit the standard spacings of wall studs and floor joists but must be hand cut and trimmed to fit any non standard spaces. Fiberglass insulation is affordable and easy to install but is only suitable for unfinished walls.
Vapor barriers and moisture control system
The function of a vapor barrier is to stop the migration of water in the air, preventing it from filtering through the walls in your home and condensing on the warm side of the insulation. The incorrect use of vapor barriers is one of the leading causes of moisture related problems and can reduce your insulation’s efficiency, making your home colder and potentially raising heating bills.
Spray foam insulation
Spray in or spray on polyurethane foam expands to fill cracks and voids to form a tightly sealed barrier. There are two types: two-pound closed-cell foam, which is both an air and vapor barrier, and half-pound open-cell foam, which must be installed with a vapor barrier. The biggest advantage of spray in foam is that it virtually eliminates air infiltration. The foam is mixed and applied on site by a trained professionals.
Attic loose fill (blow in insulation)
Blown in Loose fill insulation is made up of cellulose, fiberglass, or rock wool in the form of loose fibers or fiber pellets. This form of insulation can be used in wall cavities, unfinished attic floors, and irregularly shaped areas because it completely fills all the space around obstructions between the walls, floors and ceilings of your home. Blown in insulation should be installed by professionals using pneumatic equipment.
