Insulating Your Michigan Walls
Your home’s walls and roof create a “building envelope” that helps to keep the elements out and comfortable air inside. But if your walls are not properly insulated you can waste up to 30 percent of the energy you use to heat or cool your home.
Kroll Construction can help reduce energy loss by installing blown-in cellulose insulation and blown-in foam insulation in your home’s walls. Both are installed in your home’s wall space through spray application. Based on your home’s age and the construction of your walls, we’ll determine which product is best suited for your home. Both provide excellent insulating properties.
Cellulose insulation is a wood by-product, mixed with fire retardant and mildew resistant chemicals. In wall applications it is applied via “damp spray” so that the insulation adheres properly to wall surfaces for maximum coverage. Cellulose has a high R-value (a measure of insulating value) of approximately 3.4-3.8 per inch applied.
Spray-in foam insulation is denser material, and is better at preventing air infiltration, which is important in colder climates. Although closed-cell foam can be more expensive to install than cellulose it has an even higher insulating value, up to R7.
Kroll Construction’s insulation experts can “wrap” your home in a comforting layer of insulation that will keep your home and family snug and cozy while saving you money.
