    Superior Materials

    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 to insulate myself?

    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.”

    Common Issues Found When Homeowners Install Insulation Themselves

    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.

    What does insulation cost?

    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.

    Can I add new insulation over existing layers?

    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.
