Spray foam, fiberglass, and cellulose are all great options for insulating a house or commercial building. But it’s important to know the differences between each type of insulation and, figure out what your structure needs before you request services from Northstar Specialties, Inc:
- Spray Foam Insulation – Ideal for applying around small gaps, crevices, and cracks, spray foam dries quickly and is the sturdiest, highest quality option for insulating a building.
- Fiberglass Insulation – The most popular, affordable selection, fiberglass is a great choice to insulate any structure, but it doesn’t hold up nearly as long as spray foam.
- Cellulose Insulation – Perfect for property owners that value safe, recycled, and environmentally-friendly materials, cellulose is a great option to insulate your home or building.
An R-value is the measure of of thermal resistance to heat flow. This is dependent on the type of insulation, how thick the material is, and its density. Higher R-values mean that the insulation is more effective.
The assumption is that insulation is only needed on the external walls and attic of your home or building, but certain climates may require more insulating to get the best results. Insulate doors and windows before installing the siding to prevent drafts and heating/cooling loss. Another common place to insulate is above unheated basements, porches, and garages. Lastly, interior walls and areas where you want more soundproofing can also be insulated.
The pricing of insulating a building depends on what type of insulation is chosen and how much material is needed. If you want to know specifics, please contact Northstar Specialties and describe your project for a free estimate.
