After air sealing, an attic must be given a layer of insulation for optimal energy saving benefits. Typically, our insulation team will add blown-in fiberglass insulation. Read on for a list of the insulation products offered by our team at The Hayes Company.
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation takes care of both air sealing and insulation in one step and with one product. Polyurethane foam is sprayed on leak sources in your attic to stop unwanted air flow and help maintain your home’s temperature year-round. We offer different types of spray foam insulation for use in different attic environments.
Fiberglass insulation is a common and highly effective attic insulation solution. When providing all new insulation on a new or remodeled home, our professionals will typically use fiberglass insulation after sealing air leaks. For homes with existing insulation and sealant, an extra layer of fiberglass insulation is added to increase the R-value of the property.
Cellulose insulation is a cost effective way to increase the R-value of your attic and make your home more comfortable. Cellulose insulation is made from 80% post-consumer recycled newsprint and treated with nontoxic compounds to resist fire, mold, and insects. Like fiberglass, cellulose insulation is typically installed in tandem with air sealing for optimal insulation and air sealing performance.
