The material you choose for your home’s attic is just one of the many decisions you need to make. Another is the style of that insulation. A great choice is loose fill, also known as blown in insulation.
What is it?
Unlike batt, blown in insulation is not woven together. Instead of large strips that can be easily cut into shape, this material is kept loose so that it can be sprayed into the space creating a heavy blanket over the floor of your attic.
What are the drawbacks of blown in insulation?
One drawback to this style of insulation is most materials stay loose after being blown in. This allows the insulant to move around the attic as winds enter through the ventilation. What starts out as an even layer of insulant along your attic floor can over time turn into a few very high mountains of insulant with deep valleys that offer little protection. Another problem is that it over time it will begin to settle, as the insulation settles you will lose some of your much desired R-value.
Both of these issues are solved with our Pro Grade Stabilized Cellulose insulation. We avoid the settling and redistribution of the insulation by adding a lightweight adhesive which is activated as the insulation is blown into your attic. We guarantee that this insulation will retain its R-value for decades
What should I expect during installation?
The process for installing blown in insulation is right in its name. A large hose connected to one of our trucks outside will be safely fed into your home’s attic. We will lay down tarps and other protective materials to ensure no damage is done to the inside of your home. Then we will place the chosen material into our machine in the truck and it will feed it into the hose. Our crew will then blanket the entire floor of your attic with the material until the desired depth is reached.
