Types of Insulation
Insulation is one thing that many homeowners don’t really think too much about. Choosing the right type of insulation can prove to be a bit intimidating. It’s all determined on your budget and your home.
- Cellular Glass – Crushed glass and a foaming agent are combined and heated in a mold. This decomposes the foaming agent and melts the glass which causes the mixture to expand and create closed cells to form the insulation material.
- Gypsum Board – This board is available with non-asphaltic coating on one side to effectively secure it to the roof membrane. Gypsum is non-combustible, water resistant, and used as a cover board over foam plastic.
- Wood Fiber – This is an organic insulation board made up of cane, wood, or vegetable fibers combined with binders and fillers. Wood fiber insulation can either be covered or filled with asphalt to improve moisture resistance.
These are just a few of the many options for insulation that you have available to you. Call our office to further discuss your choices.
