Batt insulation is fiberglass blanket insulation that comes in rolls or sheets and designed for easy handling. It is used between framings such as studs and joists. Batts are available in a variety of lengths, widths, and R-values.
Loose fill insulation is blown-in with a machine directly into the attic. Blowing in insulation is faster than installing batts and offers better coverage by completely covering the attic floor.
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a spray-applied plastic that can form a continuous insulation and air-sealing barrier on walls, roofs, around corners, and on all contoured surfaces. Spray foam insulation is known to resist heat transfer extremely well and offers a highly effective solution for reducing unwanted air infiltration through cracks, seams, and joints.
Radiant Barrier Foil is a layer of metalized film facing an airspace and is installed inside the envelope of a building, usually on the bottom face of the roof rafter or between the rafters against the roof sheathing. Radiant barrier foil reflects electromagnetic radiant heat energy from the sun and dramatically reduces the amount of heat gain and heat build up in attics, improving the summertime energy efficiency performance of most homes.
Rigid Insulation is a building material used to provide thermal resistance to walls, foundations, and roofs. It is available in formed or extruded sheets varying sizes, which are made from polystyrene or polyurethane. This polyisocyanurate insulation board helps improve the energy efficiency of a home by keeping cold or hot air from penetrating the walls.
