Kinds Of Insulation Available in Albany, NY
The kind of insulation we suggest depends on the level of coverage and comfort you need for your home or building. We install 4 different types of insulation: spray foam, cellulose, blown in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation to seal off air and insulate simultaneously. It is a chemical material that expands to fill every void and is water resistant and insect resistant. There are two varieties, closed cell and open cell.
Blow-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled materials. It is used in attics and wall spaces and is resistant to pests and mold and mildew. Loose fill fiberglass insulation is blow-in fiberglass scraps and has similar applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basements and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal solution. It is a durable insulating option and is mostly used in unfinished areas of a house or commercial buildings.
Many homes don’t have adequate insulation in their wall cavities. Over time, batts and loose-fill insulation can droop or get wet and lose insulating ability. We can use different insulation materials to fix this issue including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The variety of insulation product we suggest will depend on how accessible the walls are from the exterior.
