Why is it so important to work with certified insulation experts?
One must have a certain set of knowledge to complete renovations that touch on residential insulation. The products and techniques that are used in this field require a level of experience that cannot be achieved through reading articles on the subject. Therefore, when dealing with insulation problems, always seek the help of a professional contractor.
Get several experts to check out your problem, to see if they all notice the same things and present solutions that are similar. Above all, before you get any other opinions, never sign a contract with a door-to-door salesperson that comes to your house and immediately diagnoses a problem that you had never noticed.
That’s why it’s in your best interest to use RenoQuotes.com, which will refer you to several contractors in a short amount of time. You can compare quotes and solutions offered by different specialists.
4 things to know about home insulation
- Crawlspace insulation: For a time, crawlspaces went out of style. Now, these small spaces located between the ground surface and the first floor of a home are making a comeback. What few people know is that a crawlspace has to be well insulated and well ventilated in order to avoid problems with humidity, radon gas, flooding, frozen pipes, heat loss, etc. There are several ways to insulate a crawlspace. Determining the best technique is done on a case-by-case basis. However, glass wool is not recommended for this part of a building.
- The attic is a part of the house that tends to stay out sight and out of mind. In some buildings, reaching the attic is nearly impossible without using special equipment. Nevertheless, this section of the house must be inspected on a semi-regular basis, as it is exposed to several harmful elements, such as humidity, ventilation problems and temperature changes. Moreover, if the attic is poorly insulated, the impact will be felt on energy costs. If you can reach the attic easily, try to inspect it as often as possible, to see if you notice any changes. If not, contact insulation experts.
- Are you looking for an alternative to synthetic insulation products? Here are some natural alternatives that are just as efficient, in addition to being environmentally friendly:
- Cellulose: made from recycled newspapers, cellulose is sold under several forms: sprayed, blown or as panels. This product is affordable but the installation process can be complicated.
- Cork: Cork comes from the cork oak tree. It is sold under the form of panels or granules. Along with an extended lifespan, cork also works well for soundproofing.
- Hemp: Hemp is an efficient insulation product. It offers good resistance against bacteria, insects and mushrooms. Moreover, this type of plant does not require fertilizer or pesticides, which makes it environmentally-friendly.
- Cotton: This insulation product is made from recycled textiles and polyester fiber. It is sold in braids or panels.
- Hay: Hay is an affordable insulation material that is mostly used for exterior walls.
- Mineral insulation products are often used for thermal insulation in buildings. Several types are available:
- Rock wool: This material comes from rock or iron ore that is reduced to fibre fragment. It often contains recycled materials.
- Fiberglass: Fiberglass is mostly used to insulate walls and attics. It is an excellent thermal insulation product.
- Cellular glass: This product is made of silica sand that has been transformed into a rigid foam product. Cellular glass is often used for floors and roofs.
- Vermiculite: The government of Canada does not recommend the use of vermiculite as it can contain traces of asbestos.
