  1. What is R-Value?
    R-value is a measure of a material's resistance to heat flow; usually used with regards to insulation. The higher the R-value, the better the thermal performance, or effectiveness, of the insulation.
  2. Why insulate?
    Insulation is an investment and can provide many short- and long-term benefits including reduced energy costs, improved air quality, and sound dampening.
  3. Are your technicians certified?
    Our OSHA Certifications are kept up to date and our insulation technicians regularly attend classes, workshops, and conventions to learn the latest about products and standards.
  4. Where should I insulate?
    This depends on your structure's current insulation and the areas that require more insulation. Some of the most common areas that should be insulated are the attic, basement or crawlspace, exterior walls, and the garage (depending on its usage). We will review your facility and discuss the most cost effective solutions for you. 
  5. Do I need to hire a professional?
    It is highly recommended to hire a professional to install insulation. Before we begin any project we review your current home or building's conditions in order to determine where insulation is needed and then give our recommendations as to how much and what kind.
  6. Do I need to remove old insulation before adding?
    Usually adding new insulation along with the old insulation will have a cumulative impact on the insulation's effectiveness. However, it would depend on the state of the current insulation and the type of new insulation being installed.
  7. How does spray foam compare in cost to other materials?
    Spray foam includes a higher initial cost at installation, but will make up for it over time in reduced energy costs compared to other forms of installation. Spray foam also does not settle nor retain moisture which would reduce it's effectiveness.
