We use the best quality products available
All insulation has an R value. Just what is R-value? The ”R” in R-value stands for resistance to heat flow. R-value is the measure of insulation’s ability to resist heat traveling through it. The higher the R-value the greater the insulation performance.
All types of insulation promote better indoor air quality and comfort levels. Knowing the type of your building, your expectations of its use, and budgetary considerations is what helps us help you consider your best option and the R-value you will need.
Here are some of our insulation products
We use Gaco Spray Foam Products. Foam is one of the most preferred insulation options available today. Gaco Spray Foam can reduce energy bills by up to 40% over other insulation techniques. Spray foam fills in the gaps and restricts moisture transmission; you can actually see the seal created when foam is blown into the cavity of your home. It is especially resistant to pests and mold. Gaco products offer Superior Sound Control and adds structural integrity to your walls.
Polson Insulation uses the Bibs system, which stands for blown-in blanket system. Polson Insulation is certified and trained to apply Bibs. Bibs offers some of the highest R-values attainable today. This state-of-the art system features loose-fill virgin fiberglass, which is especially designed for open system(attic) situations and closed (sidewall/floors) situations, as well as cathedral ceilings. It is blown in behind a proprietary fabric. Bibs completely fits around pipes, wires, etc. to increase thermal efficiency and eliminate costly air gaps.
We prefer Fiberglass (over cellulose) insulation for jobs which require batts. Fiberglass is made from molten glass spun into fibers creating an exceptional thermal blanket, keeping cold air out in winter and hot air out in summer. Another superior batt we love is mineral wool. In addition to maintaining consistent temperatures in your home, both products have acoustical properties, resist moisture growth, and are environmentally friendly. Mineral wool has the added feature of being fire-resistant. We use pink Owens-Corning EcoTouch batts which consistently delivers comfort, performance, and value to home owners. Think pink!
