INSULATION

SERVICES

Spray Foam Insulation In Minnesota

Types Of Spray Foam Insulation

2lb Closed-Cell Medium Density Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation

Closed-cell, medium density SPF is one of the highest performing insulations on the market. 2lb foam has an R-Value per inch of thickness of R6 to R7 depending on the manufacturer, most of them being R6. It’s not only a great insulator, it’s also a vapor barrier and air barrier all in one product. Spray foam is one of the only type of installation where the R-value is unaffected by air or moisture.  Not many people know that when it comes to other fibrous types of insulations the “Rated R-Value” listed on the package is greatly dependent on the “optimal” conditions for the product to perform, with zero moisture and air movement, which is an environment you cannot find anywhere except in a laboratory. Although, fibrous insulation is still widely used and accepted as common practice and perfectly fine to use in your home but, so is a rotary telephone, or a refrigerator that stays cool from a large block of ice…. Spray Foam Insulation is the new “improved” insulation that eliminates the flaws in old traditional insulation systems.

0.5lb Open-Cell Light Density Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation

Open-cell, light density SPF, also commonly referred to as icynene foam, has an R-Value of between R3 and R4 Per Inch (Depending on the manufacture) and is a much softer spongy spray foam compared closed-cell.  Open-cell foam also expands out of rate about five times more than 2 lb foam. This makes it great for filling large cavities, or insulating areas that are blocked by framing or ductwork leaving only a small crack or hole to insulate through. Open cell foam is not a vapor barrier and does require the additional vapor barrier to installed on the appropriate side of the building envelope depending on where you live in the climate.

Injection Foam

Injection foam is a low-rise spray foam insulation it has been formulated specifically for filling cavities or voids, to create a foam that slowly Rises, allowing extra time for the foam to react and expand filled cavity with less expanding pressure or strength than other types of foam, which reduces the risk of the spray foam pushing out or bowing the drywall well expanding within the cavity.

3lb High Density Roofing Spray foam

3 pound High Density Roofing SPF is a high strength spray foam  used on flat roofs and the exterior of buildings. because of its higher density it expands at a lower rate than 2 lb foam allowing it to be sprayed more smoothly or flat which is required for roofing or exterior insulation. High-density roofing foam also reduces impact damage caused by extreme weather like hail.

5lb-10lb Ultra High Density Agricultural Spray Foam

Ultra high-density agricultural  SPF is the most dense, highest strength spray foam available. Is not commonly used as insulation in homes or buildings but can be found more frequently used in agricultural applications. When ultra high-density home is applied it expands very little and hardens into plastic-like coding similar to a truck bed liner protective coating set this protective coating does have some insulation properties to it. Super strong ultra high density home is most commonly found used in chicken houses because the super-strong plastic-like insulation cannot be pecked scratched or destroyed by chickens or any other animals.

Fiberglass Batt Insulation In Minnesota

Fiberglass Batt Insulation Features and Benefits

Fiberglass Batts come in R11 through R49 and can be used in walls, floors, and ceiling applications.

Fiberglass Batt Insulation Benefits

• Excellent thermal control

• Effective acoustical control 

• Lower cost compared to other insulations

Fiberglass Batt Insulation Applications

• Wood-framed wall, floor and roof/ceiling cavity wall assemblies

• Metal-framed wall and floor cavity wall assemblies

Fiberglass Batt Insulation Vapor barrier Requirements

  Fiberglass insulation requires a vaporbarrier to be applied to the correct side of the building envlope (depending on climate). The most commonly used and building code compliant vapor barrier used with fiberglass insulation is either 4mil poly or 6mil poly.

 For optimal performance fiberglass insulation should be installed to sungly fit the cavity and not be forced or squished into the cavity and be the correct size thickness of material suggested for the thickness of lumber used.

Talk to your local building offical or office to find the, applicable building code(s) to determine your local vapor barrier / vapor retarder requirements, placement location, and vapour permeability requirements for the area your project is located

Why Air-Barriers Are Important For Batt Insulation To Perform

Fiberglass does not stop air movement, and for optimal performance there should be as little air movement in the cavity as possible. This is usually achieved by installing an air barrier on the appropriate side of the building envelope to reduce the potential air infiltration through the building envelope. 

Dense Pack Fiberglass BIBS Wall Insulation In Minnesota

Dense Packed Blown In Blanket (BIBS) Systems Vs Regular Traditional Batt Insulation

The Dense Packed BIBS insulation systems is a great alternative to spray foam insulation because it solves some of the common problems with batt insulation.  Fiberglass is blown into the wall cavity through a very tightly installed webbed membrane and packed with air under a certain amount of pressure, filling the cavity, leaving no gaps, voids or spaces and eliminates the possibility for any settling of the material over time.

Dense packed fiberglass also reduces sound transmission from outside or between any room where the wall is insulated with a BIBS systems. This makes for a great low cost way to sound proof the walls of your home in addition to the outside  walls.

Does Dense Packed Blown In Blanket (BIBS) Wall Insulation Settle Over Time?

When Fiberglass BIBS systems are installed properly, NO they do not settle over timeOur fiberglass BIBS insulation installers are trained and experienced in doing dense pack wall insulation. To eliminate the possibility of settling, our installers calculate the required amount of insulation for your wall and make sure that the density of that insulation is to the manufactures spec.  This will not allow the insulation to settle over time. 

Have peace of mind knowing your dense packed fiberglass BIBS wall insulation is installed by a professional team, trained to make sure that its performance lasts over it’s  lifetime without changing.

Cost Of Dense packed Blown In Blanket (BIBS) Vs Spray Foam Insulation

Insulation is the highest performing insulation available on the market. Unfortunately it also has a high price tag. Dense pack fiberglass BIBS wall insulation is a low-cost alternative that you may want to consider over using traditional batt insulation.

Traditional batt insulation is prone to having gaps, voids and wrinkles which allows air to travel through and around the insulation, degrading its performance.  With dense pack insulation completely fills the cavity. It is installed under pressure and does not allow for any gaps or space for air to travel.

Attic Insulation In Minnesota

Choosing the right insulation for your Attic

Before making a decision on what type of insulation to use in your attic, you should take a look at the insulation that is already there. Sometimes just adding insulation on top to increase thickness and R-value is not necessarily the right choice and may lead to problems down the road if not done properly. Have one of our insulation experts inspect your attic to find out what the best type of insulation and insulation system to use.

Types Of Attic Insulation:

Blown Fiberglass Attic Insulation

Blown fiberglass is the most common insulation used in attics.  Blown fiberglass is a fluffy insulation that is compressed into a square bag packaging. During the installation, the bag is cut relieving the pressure of the compressed material into the insulation hopper where it is agitated and fluffed up so there are no compressed chunks left then blown through a long 4″ plastic hose that leads into the building to the area where the attic or area where it blows out of the hose onto the attic floor to insulate the ceiling of the room below.

Blown Cellulose Attic Insulation

Blown cellulose insulation is fluffy blown insulation made from recycled newspaper, with added fire retardant chemicals like boric acid, sodium borate (borax), they also serve as a disinfectant so that mold cannot grow in cellulose if it gets damp, and also irritates insects and rodents discouraging them from nesting in the insulation. Cellulose is installed with the same equipment and method as blown fiberglass insulation described above.

Fiberglass Batt Insulation Attic Insulation

Fiberglass Batts are also commonly used as attic insulation. Although it is common to see batt insulation used in an attic, it’s not really the most ideal choice for attic insulation from an insulation performance perspective. This is because batt insulation comes in “pieces”, which results in seams and gaps between these pieces of insulation. These seams and caps allow air to flow around and through the batt insulation. Installing a blanket of blown insulation over top of all the fiberglass batts in the attic will greatly improve the performance of the fiberglass insulation by eliminating these gaps and cracks between the different pieces of insulation installed on the attic floor.

The Importance Of Attic Ventilation

In the summer the sun heats the shingles as well as the roofline, increasing the temperature inside your attic. Heat builds up and has nowhere to exhaust  if you don’t have a proper attic ventilation system in place. 

To properly vent your attic, you should have insulation & ventilation baffles installed around the outer edges of the attic.  There should also be a clear path to the soffit without any insulation blockage. 

The soffits around the exterior perimeter of the house should have ventilation holes and not any plywood or other old existing finishings that block ventilation holes to the outside. This pathway is what brings fresh cooler air into the attic. Your attic should also have an appropriate amount of roof vents closer to the peak of the roof. These upper roof vents are where the attic air is exhausted.   

When a complete ventilation system is in place the difference in pressure from inside the attic to outside forces the attic to pull fresh air in from the soffits and exhaust existing air from the attic through the roof vents. This keeps your attic cool in the summer, which in turn keeps your house cooler.

In the winter the same system helps exhaust any built up hot air and moisture not have leaked from the house into the attic due to air sealing. If an attic is completely sealed off from any air or moisture leakage from the house and ventilation during the winter would not be necessary, but we all know that’s rarely the case.

Why Attic Air-sealing Fixtures, Potlights And Plumbing Stacks Are Important

The air in your attic is under a different amount of pressure than the air in your house, both of those are under a different amount of pressure than the air outside. This causes your  attic to try to pull air from your house. It is why every little crack or void that leaks air from the house into the attic is more important and you think. 

This air leakage into your attic doesn’t only carry the air you paid to warm your house with but it also carries with it moisture. Moisture in your attic, especially during the winter or cold seasons, is definitely something you don’t want because it could lead to frost, wet insulation, damage to your drywall and even mold.

Sometimes air leakage areas are not just little cracks and holes, they are huge gaps and voids that you could stick your whole arm into.  Plumbing stocks are notorious for having very large air leakage holes around the ventilation stack that continues up through the attic and out the roof.  Pot lights are notoriously leaky in many attics, they are often found without any insulation from the person who installed them.

Problems That Can Happen When Your Attic Is Not Insulated Properly

Many people think more insulation is better, more R-value, more thickness,  more results right?  

Wrong!  

Sometimes more isn’t the solution and most of the time a better solution will be found by further investigating and fixing the insulation system that’s already in place, or by removing all the insulation and starting over the right way.

It is very easy to cause problems in your attic by just piling up insulation without taking into consideration attic ventilation and air sealing, which may lead to mold in your attic, rot, roof failure and a lot of potential damage. 

Attic insulation is not an item you need more of, it’s a system you need to improve.

Insulation Removal

In Minnesota

How We Remove Insulation, What Does The Process Look Like?

In most cases the insulation removal process involves vacuuming insulation with a large hose which runs outside the house to our truck trailer or garbage dumpster where industrial-grade 25hp gas-powered vacuum. The insulation from the house runs through the inside hose and into a material bag attached to the vacuum either located inside our trailer truck or garbage bin on site. The process is very clean inside the house as any dust created inside the attic during the removal is sucked from the air during the process. When our crews arrive onsite to begin the insulation removal project, we make sure to protect the house with cardboard and other cushioning items to protect corners or other items that the hose may rub against so that our insulation removal hose does not damage your home in any way.

Why Insulation Removal Can Solve More Problems Then Expected

We have done a lot of insulation removals in attics during our time as an insulation contractor. you may be very surprised to hear about some of the things we find in attics when we do insulation removals. Sometimes the best reason to remove insulation from your attic is the ability to start over and uncover any problems hidden under all that fluffy stuff.

Things We Have Found In Attics During Insulation Removals

You might be surprised to know that we find a lot more than just old lost treasures or relics from the past in attics. Sometimes our insulation removals uncover more concerning things hidden under the insulation than buried tressure. Removing the insulation from your attic gives you the opportunity to fully inspect the attic and find issues that would normally be hidden under the insulation like:

  •  Electrical wiring that has been either rubbing or chewed on by rodents that could very easily lead to fires.
  • Disconnected or broken vent stacks, venting sewer fumes into your attic
  • Disconnected or broken ductwork that’s blowing conditioned air into your attic
  • Hidden or unobvious Building envelope deficiencies like stranded cavities or inside walls that are open to the attic space leaking air from the house 
  • Potential fire hazards around fireplace chimneys,  or other hot exhaust vents
  • Bathroom fans leaking or venting  moist air directly into the Attic 
  • Hidden Mold, Frost, rot,  or other damage 

As you can see from the list above a lot of these items Are pretty good reasons to consider removing the insulation from your attic if it’s an older home. The “Peace of Mind” knowing that everything has inspected and corrected, there are no hidden problems, and all the installation is clean, fresh, air-tight,  and energy efficient as possible.

Reasons Why You Might Want To Remove Your Attic Insulation or Wall Insulation

There can be many reasons why you want to remove the insulation from your attic. Maybe it’s because you have a family of raccoons, bats or other wildlife living in your attic, and the feces or droppings from these animals can be hazardous to your health. Aside from the health hazards, the damage animals can create in your attic can sometimes be substantial and warrant removing the insulation completely. Maybe you had a roof leak and your insulation got wet, or you had mold growing in your attic,  or maybe you just want to remove the insulation from your attic to start over from scratch using more new-age materials like spray foam to increase the performance in your attic giving you peace of mind that you won’t have problems of air leakage condensation and moisture, Rot, ice dams or any other potential problems associated with using traditional insulation in your attic without a fully sealed continuous air barrier and vapor barrier eliminating any potential air leakage.
