Fiberglass & Cellulose have the same R-Value. Fiberglass, the most popular attic insulation, is made from basic raw materials majority including silica sand, limestone and soda ash. Cellulose is composed of 75-80% of recycled paper with the remaining 15% being a fire retardant such as boric acid or ammonium sulphate. At 1907 Insulation, we offer both types to meet the client’s requests.
All attic spaces, ceilings, walls, floors, crawl spaces and basements.
All insulation is defined by its current R-Value. “R” is the resistance to heat flow meaning the higher the R-Value the more efficient and insulation capacity.
First, you need to know the current insulation type in your space. Second, understand the R-Value of your insulation will decrease over time as the product ages & settles. Third, most attic insulation should be 14-16 inches above your ceiling rafters. Please contact us for a free estimate of your current R-Value.
Retrofit Insulation is a construction term that simply means to add additional insulation to your property’s current insulation base.
No, not necessarily. Our specialists will remove all loose debris & trash in your attic, wall or floor and then use a hose to blow in additional insulation to achieve the highest R-Value necessary. If our specialist, or if the property owner determines it is necessary to remove all existing insulation, our specialist will suck out all old/existing insulation with a large commercial vacuum, seal all necessary cavities, then then use a hose to blow in additional insulation to achieve the highest R-Value necessary.
