Cellulose Insulation Installation

Cellulose Insulation Installation Services in Virginia

Cellulose insulation has been used to insulate homes for many years. Cellulose is made from recycled newsprint and other recycled paper and treated with nontoxic fire retardants. It is a durable, safe, cost effective solution for a homeowner looking to upgrade their insulation. It can be used in similar applications as blown-in fiberglass. It can be blown into nearly any space including attics where it can be blown over the top of existing insulation. Cellulose can also be dense packed into other closed cavities.

More to Know About Cellulose Insulation

You may have heard about the growing popularity of cellulose insulation and its many energy saving benefits such as reducing your carbon footprint, lowering your heating and cooling costs, and providing quality sound control. Here are a few more things to know about this effective insulation choice:

  • It has a Class 1 flame spread rating and contains active fire-resistance materials to provide durable and excellent fire resistance.
  • It is resistant to mold growth and works to dissipate moisture for moisture management.
  • It does not contain asbestos or formaldehyde.
  • It is ideal for insulating older homes, adding R-value, and filling gaps over existing insulation.
  • It is safe to touch and won’t irritate unprotected skin.
  • It won’t settle in sidewalls but will settle in attics until it reaches a stable density, similar to other blown insulation. All thermal performance testing is done at the settled thickness.

Cellulose insulation is available in two primary forms. Loose-fill cellulose is often used to insulate attics. Stabilized cellulose insulation is used to protect your entire home including sidewalls.
