Attic Insulation Installation Tacoma
While DIY might save money in certain situations, attic insulation installation should be left to professionals. Proper installation is crucial for optimal protection. DIY efforts could lead to foam layer issues, mold growth, or even personal injury and attic damage. Choose Guardian Home for expert attic insulation.
Tacoma Spray Foam Insulation
Polyurethane foam insulation is created by combining isocyanates (A-side) and polyol resins (B-side) in a chemical reaction. When applied with a foam gun, the material expands to fill gaps and crevices in your attic or crawl space before solidifying. This insulation type is highly effective for sealing attics and crawl spaces.
Fiberglass insulation typically comes in batts that can be rolled or positioned on various surfaces, such as walls, floors, or ceilings. Blown fiberglass has gained popularity and constitutes a significant part of our insulation projects. This insulation type is created by mixing recycled glass with natural sand.
Cellulose insulation consists of recycled paper, primarily newsprint, with a high recycled content of about 82-85%. During production, the paper is broken down into small fragments, transformed into fibers, and combined with flame and insect retardants. Mineral borate or ammonium sulfate are the most commonly used retardants. Blown-in pellets are the main form of cellulose insulation, but it can also be made in batts.
Cotton insulation is becoming increasingly popular among environmentally-conscious consumers. It is manufactured by reusing recycled blue jeans and other natural cotton fibers from industrial waste. Cotton insulation typically contains 85% recycled cotton and 15% plastic fibers, treated with boric acid for flame resistance. This insulation is non-toxic, and its installation doesn’t necessitate respiratory or skin protection. Unlike fiberglass insulation, cotton insulation does not cause skin irritation or burning upon contact.
