Cellulose Insulation is Efficient and Economical

If you are building a home or adding an addition, you have plenty of choices for insulation including, spray foam, batt, cellulose and blown-in. While all types of insulation works well, many feel as though cellulose is the best choice for old and new construction. Cellulose insulation gives you the most bang for your buck.

Cellulose insulation is exceptionally green-friendly, made from recycled newspapers. This makes it economical option.  But besides being economical and organic, recycled cellulose insulation out performs fiberglass insulation and is less expensive than spray-foam. Builders have been looking for a better solution to fiberglass insulation and cellulose is it. Why? Because when using cellulose insulation, the entire building envelope of your home is sealed.

Cellulose is cheaper than spray foam and is more effective than fiberglass insulation. Dense packed cellulose has an R-Value of 4.0 per inch and wicks moisture better than any other insulation. For  air infiltration and sound control, cellulose insulation is a better choice than fiberglass or spray foam.
