A Pro Home Improvement installation expert will perform a free evaluation to ensure that this type of insulation will best suit your specific home’s requirements. Both older and newer homes typically prove excellent candidates for our exclusive “Pro Grade” Stabilized Cellulose Insulation. This insulation will reap considerable savings for the customer, and the full cost of installation is usually compensated in as little as a year or two. Pro Grade insulation is simply a wise investment for any homeowner seeking to live more economically.
Pro Grade insulation is also a “greener” option for the environmentally-conscious consumer. Manufactured of 100% recycled fibers, it’s easy to see how our unique brand of cellulose installation helps to minimize our overall carbon footprint. Traditional fiberglass insulation, by contrast, is unable to be recycled like Pro Grade insulation. This insulation brand also boasts an incredibly low emissions rate for the transportation and production processes. Thanks to the use of Pro Grade Stabilized Cellulose Insulation, consumers are conserving energy, recycling products, and supporting an overall more sustainable way of life.
For those not ready to “take the plunge” by replacing their entire insulation system, Pro Grade can be installed over older insulation. Pro Grade is a concentrated product, and as little as five inches of this insulation will renew that much-desired R-value of the fiberglass, which helps to promote maximum heating/cooling using much less energy than traditional insulating materials. Also, federal and state initiatives provide some valuable incentives for those who opt to conserve energy by the securing of environmentally-responsible modifications for their homes and/or businesses. For area specific regulations, please contact your utility company.
A Word about R-Value:
R-Value is what gauges the performance of the insulating material being used. A high R-Value ensures top-quality protection for your home that will provide the most energy-saving benefits. With an average R-Value of 3.8-3.9 R/inch, Pro Grade Stabilized Cellulose Insulation defends against air-infiltration and radiation of thermal energy. This high rating ensures a greater concentration of insulating material, which also results in a greater reduction of outside noise.
Fire Prevention Tests:
Tested and produced by R&D Services in accordance with ASTM C739, Pro Grade Stabilized Cellulose Insulation exceeds the standards of fire-resistance testing. With a performance record 15 times greater than the National Standard! Pro Grade Insulation is the much safer, less flammable alternative for your home and family.
Heat Transfer Definitions
- Conduction is the transfer of heat through a solid material, such as heat being transferred from warmer sections of walls and ceilings to cooler areas.
- Convection is the transfer of heat by moving air, like warm air rising to the ceiling.
- Radiation is the transfer of heat in the form of electromagnetic waves, such as heat being transferred from the roof of a home to the ceiling.

- Spray Foam Insulation -
Having your home at a comfortable temperature regardless of the season is probably quite important to you. However, in these days of rising energy costs, many homeowners are finding it is too expensive to keep their homes warm enough in the winter and cool enough in the summer. Michigan residents often feel particularly challenged when confronted with harsh winters and blistering summer heat. One of the most effective tools in a homeowner's battle with the weather is proper insulation.
- Crawl Space Insulation -
A home's crawl space is a valuable convenience, as it allows homeowners and workers easy access to substructures, pipes and other areas that would be costly and destructive to access. However, crawl spaces can contribute to a number of problems in a home. One of the most harmful issues is that they can be ideal breeding grounds for mold and mildew. When the air in the home above warms, it can draw air, along with mold spores and other pollutants, into the home's living area. This can aggravate any breathing problems family members might have.
