Attic Insulation in Oak Park.
One of the most important areas of your home or building to insulate correctly is your attic. Insulating an attic the right way will keep heated air from seeping into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent heated air from living spaces seeping into an unheated attic in the winter. Air movement such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas.

You will also discover that spray foam insulation also helps with insect and rodent control in below grade spaces such as basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Oak Park, IL.
The kind of insulation we recommend is dependent on the degree of coverage and comfort you need for your home or building. We install four different types of insulation: spray foam, cellulose, blown in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation to shut out air and insulate simultaneously. It is a chemical substance that spreads out to fill every opening and is water-proof and pest resistant. There are 2 kinds, closed cell and open cell.
Blow-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled products. It is used in attics and wall cavities and is resistant to pests and mold and mildew. Loose fill fiberglass insulation is blown in fiberglass shreds and has similar applications to cellulose insulation. It is a very cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basements and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is a perfect answer. It is a durable insulating choice and is mostly installed in unfinished areas of a house or business buildings.
Many properties don’t have adequate insulation in their wall spaces. In time, batts and loose fill insulation can droop or get soaked and will lose their insulating ability. We can use various insulation materials to remedy this issue including injection foam, blown fiberglass and spray foam. The variety of insulation product we recommend will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the exterior.
