If you’re wondering how to make your home more efficient without tearing out your walls to apply spray foam, cellulose insulation is an incredible and effective option.
Perfect for existing walls and attic floors or ceilings, cellulose insulation can be added to almost any empty cavity to create an effective (and cost-effective) thermal barrier.
Even spaces as thin as a few inches can accommodate valuable cellulose insulation easily, and the installation is not NEARLY as messy, expensive, or time-consuming as opening up your walls.
At Solanco Spray Foam, we offer high-quality cellulose and spray foam insulation services that are designed to meet the unique needs of our customers. Our team of experts can help you choose the right product for your home or building, and we offer professional installation services to ensure that your insulation is done correctly from the start and the job exceeds your expectations.
Cellulose insulation is made from shredded, recycled paper products such as newspapers, cardboard, other paper-based materials, and sometimes fibrous cloth materials treated. This shredded mixture is treated with fire retardants and other chemicals to increase its resistance to fire and pests, and is then blown into walls, attics, and other spaces using special equipment.
The result is a dense layer of insulation that helps to trap heat in the winter and keep it out in the summer, reducing energy consumption and improving the overall comfort of a home or building. Because it uses otherwise recycled materials, it’s an eco-friendly and cost-effective option for insulating homes and buildings. Cellulose has great sound-proofing qualities, too!
Cellulose provides a compelling alternative to both closed cell spray foam and fiberglass insulation batts for different reasons.
It’s far more insulative than traditional fiberglass or rock wool – with an R-value of about 4-per-inch and with much greater air barrier – while at the same time costing about half as much as closed cell spray foam!
For homeowners who are cost-conscious but still want great insulation, blown cellulose is a stupendous option. More importantly in many cases, blown cellulose is perfect for otherwise-impossible places to insulate!
Blown cellulose is an incredible insulation choice for older homes where access is tough: we use specialized equipment to “fill” your walls from top to bottom with only tiny, patchable holes to show for it.
