While insulation is practically a necessity for any modern structure, that doesn’t mean that all insulation methods are correctly utilized. Just like many other aspects of establishing or maintaining property, the setup of a job determines its outcome.

If there’s one characteristic that contributes to our success year after year, it’s our talented staff.

We want your home’s insulative properties to last as long as you do, which is why we use top-performing insulation materials. Gone are the days of relying on less effective cellulose substances, like cardboard and corn cobs. Today’s cellulose is made primarily of recycled newspapers that have a flame retardant added to reduce the likelihood of a fire spreading further. We only use the highest quality materials, which are tested and proven to retain warmth in cold weather while maximizing your building’s existing heating system.
Is it cheaper? Sure, if you’re only talking about money. But, it will cost you a lot of time and headaches. For many people who say, “I’ll install insulation myself…” quickly being to feel like, “I bit off more than I could chew.”
There is not enough insulation installed to meet the building codes for their climate.
The list goes on.
We could list many mistakes that are both serious and easy to make. True, you wouldn’t be the first to make them, but that won’t make the consequences any less frustrating or costly for you.
As is always true in life, there is simply no substitute for experience. A professional will have already learned these lessons the hard way — a long time ago — to your benefit.
The best type of attic insulation for the hot Illinois summers, and cold winters, is spray foam. Closed-cell spray foam has an impressive R-value in the range of 6 to 7 per inch. Other adequate attic insulation types for Illinois include blown-in fiberglass, blown-in cellulose, and fiberglass batt.
It can costs between $1 and $5 per square foot for insulation on average, depending on the type. A 1,500-square-foot home could cost between $1,500 and $7,500 to insulate. The amount of insulation needed varies from home to home.
According to ENERGY STAR®, you can put new insulation over old insulation, “unless it is wet. If it is wet or appears that the insulation has previously been wet, you should look for the cause and repair the problem…” Wet insulation is problematic, as it can lead to mold, mildew and sometimes the rotting of ceilings or roof rafters.
Although insulation professionals will handle the installation for you, here are some things to keep in mind about removing old insulation and installing new insulation over old insulation.
“Faced” insulation should not be placed on top of existing insulation in the attic. Any new roll or batt insulation installed over existing insulation in the attic needs to be without a vapor retarder (face). The vapor retarder on top of or between layers of insulation can trap moisture. Any existing batt or roll insulation in the attic should have the facing against the attic drywall floor or no facing at all.
K13 is a spray on insulation used for thermal and noise control which is applied to ceilings as an exposed finish. This spray is used to create a comfortable sound controlled environment in offices, bars, restaurants and event venues.
K13 thermal insulation spray is created from cellulose materials which are used to reduce noise levels and absorb sound. This versatile product can be applied on many surfaces and is useful in reducing noise in offices, music venues, restaurants or metal roofs.
Spraying fire resistant K13 insulation on the ceiling of a building increases safety. K13 thermal insulation is fire class 0 meaning that it decreases the heat release and prevents the spread of flames on surfaces.
This green form of insulation is composed of recyclable materials such as cotton and wood. Applying K13 offers many esthetic benefits and can compliment any color scheme as the spray is offered in a variety of different colors.
K13 spray can be applied 5 inches thick and has an R-Value of 3.75 per inch. This versatile spray can be applied to almost any surface shape such as domed, curved and corrugated. One of the many benefits of this spray is that it fills in gaps, cracks, creates an air seal, stops air leakage, condensation and moisture. Another amazing quality about K13 is that it adheres to metal, glass, gypsum, wood, concrete, and plasterboard.
