Residential Insulation


The maximum thermal performance or R-value of insulation is very dependent on proper installation.

Homeowners can install some types of insulation -- notably blankets and materials that can be poured in place. (Liquid foam insulation materials can be poured, but they require professional installation). Other types require professional installation.

When hiring a professional certified installer:

Obtain written cost estimates from several contractors for the R-value you need, and don't be surprised if quoted prices for a given R-value installation vary by more than a factor of two.

Ask contractors about their air-sealing services and costs as well, because it’s a good idea to seal air leaks before installing insulation.

To evaluate blanket installation, you can measure batt thickness and check for gaps between batts as well as between batts and framing.

In addition, inspect insulation for a tight fit around building components that penetrate the insulation, such as electrical boxes.

To evaluate sprayed or blown-in types of insulation, measure the depth of the insulation and check for gaps in coverage.

If you choose to install the insulation yourself, follow the manufacturer’s instructions and safety precautions carefully and check local building and fire codes.

Do-it-yourself instructions are available from the fiberglass and mineral wool trade group.

The cellulose trade group recommends hiring a professional, but if there isn’t a qualified installer in your area or you feel comfortable taking on the job, you may be able to find guidance from manufacturers.

Spray Foam Insulation is developed from two types of composite materials: polyurethane and isocyanate. When combined, these two materials chemically react to each other and cause their combined substance to expand and harden. During the installation process, both materials are simultaneously sprayed from the tip of a spray foam gun. allowing them to expand and form a protective layer of spray foam insulation over the desired area.

Open Cell Foam Insulation:


Open cell is a type of foam where the tiny cells are not completely closed. open cell is less expensive because it uses fewer chemicals. It is a very good air barrier but does not to provide any type of water vapor barrier. It is much more sponge-like in apparence. It is ofen used for interior walls becaude it provides sound reduction by damping the movement of existing insulation. It is not recomended for outdoors applications.


Closed Cell Foam Insulation:


Closed cell foam insulation is a much more dense type of foam than open cell. It has a smaller, more compact cell structure. It is a very good barrier as well as water vapor barrier. It is ofen used in roofing projects or outdoors applications, but can be used anywhere in the home.
