3 Popular Insulation Varieties You Can Choose for Your Home, Greenbrier, Arkansas

Insulation plays an essential role in any building, helping to maintain a consistent internal temperature. Without proper insulation, homes and businesses would be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. The team at Whit Davis Lumber Plus in Jacksonville, Cabot, Sherwood, and Greenbrier, AR, says there are several types of insulation, each with their own ideal usage situations. So how can you decide between cellulose, fiberglass, and spray foam insulation

A Closer Look at the Top Types of Insulation

Spray Foam

spray foam insulationSpray foam insulation has been used with increasing frequency by contractors in recent years, in large part because it makes it easy to fill enclosed existing walls, new open cavities, and other areas that are difficult to reach. The polyurethane spray foam insulation is perfect for filling the small nooks and crannies where blanket insulation wouldn’t work.

Fiberglass

Fiberglass insulation is one of the most widely used forms used today. Made from minuscule glass fibers, it is distinctive for its bright pink coloration. Highly cost effective and easy to install, it’s an excellent choice for exterior walls, attics, and other areas where a lot of insulation is required. While it can be a very effective form of insulation, a thicker layer is typically used to achieve a high R-value.

Cellulose

Crafted using primarily recycled materials, cellulose is environmentally friendly and available exclusively as a blow-in insulation option. It can be used in the same areas as fiberglass, providing quality soundproofing and insulation. Though somewhat more expensive than fiberglass, it offers superior resistance to mold and mildew and improved blockage against air leaks.
