Which Type of Insulation Is Ideal for a Virginia Beach Home?
Every insulation project is different. Insulation is an imperative addition to your home in the Virginia Beach area. However, the details have more to do with your preferences and priorities. A good place to start is learning about all the different types of insulation material, and the benefits each one brings to the table. Then, we can help you choose what is perfect for your project specifically!
Fiberglass insulation can be one of the most cost-effective types of insulation and is available as blown-in (loose-fill) or rolls and batts. Our team of home insulators recommend virtually anywhere in your home – walls, the attic, the basement, etc. If you want to keep the costs down for your insulation project, fiberglass may be your best bet.
Cellulose insulation, which consists of more than 80 percent recycled material, can be considered an environmentally friendly product. In our opinion, it is superior at stopping air infiltration, especially if your home is sealed as well. If being green is the most important aspect of your insulation project to you, cellulose could be the perfect choice.
Spray foam insulation is a great type of insulation to use if you need to fill cracks, gaps, crevices or any other small cavity. We use BASF Sprayed Polyurethane Closed Cell Foam. If your insulation project requires fitting insulation into tight areas in your Virginia Beach home, spray foam is ideal.
Radiant barrier insulation is typically installed in attics and can help lower cooling costs by reflecting (rather than absorbing) heat from the sun.
No matter what type of home insulation you want to install, you can rely on Tidewater Insulators. In addition to installation, we also offer insulation removal services.
