There are many things to think about when remodeling a home and you don’t want to overlook insulation. Many homeowners tackle their own home improvement projects, but when it comes to installing or upgrading home insulation, it’s best to hire a professional insulation contractor.
The home’s primary insulating areas are open during most remodeling projects. Areas such as walls and ceilings become accessible during a remodel. This gives a contractor more insulating options and makes it easier for your insulation contractor to install upgraded insulation.
When considering insulation options for your remodeling project, spray foam insulation is a great option. Spray foam insulation adds R-value to a cavity and air seals in one step. Spray foam expands to fill a space so it seals crevices and air leaks in one process. When you choose spray foam insulation for your remodeling project you will receive two energy-saving benefits in one application.
