The Best Missouri City Attic Insulation Materials
There are several great options, but when you consider the best, you have to think about all of the features that it can possess and ultimately provide to you. This will regard things like flammability, and if the material has proper sound and heat protective qualities. Even the water-resistance must be assessed when discussing the finest quality. With that said, there are three options that come to mind. The following are selected for their barrier insulation, R-value, exceptional features, and other unique aspects that may make them stand apart.
This material is made from small fibers of glass (silicon) that are woven into a batt. The benefit of this material is that it is non-flammable and rather cheap to produce. The material can be used in all types of climates because of it’s versatile nature. It is not hard to come by and is considered to be one of the most common insulation materials used today. The R-value ranges from 2.8 to 3.6 and it will certainly serve your home well.
This is a material which is known more for its eco-friendly aspects. First and foremost, this is the most recycled material out of all of the insulation types. Therefore it will automatically be a better option for your home than some of the other types such as styrofoam or mineral wool. Since it has an R-value of 3.1 to 3.7, it is also more reliable than fiberglass and definitely easier to install. However, we’ll touch on that later on. This material has the ability to also create a decent sound barrier as well. It is slightly more expensive, but for good reason.
Aerogel (Spray Foam Insulation)
The best option on the market currently is polyurethane. It is a foam that is sprayed out of a gun with a CFC compound which is actually more helpful for the ozone layer. It is going to be the most expensive option, but you will notice the added benefits seem to outweigh the price tag. First of all, it is non-flammable and creates a good sound barrier. However, it also creates a water-resistance as well. This is ideal for the more humid climates like Katy. We would certainly encourage this otption because it is by far the best quality and the easiest to install.
In Terms Of Safety
Of course, you may be wondering what would be considered a difficult installation. This is why consultants urge homeowners not to apply their own attic insulation. For a long time, there were only options that appeared to be toxic and cause many severe problems for people. These ranged from toxins in the air to other damaging particles that would get released during the basic application. We will explain why some of the options above are safer, and why others are not. Regardless, you will still get a great Missouri City insulation that will be far better than any existing insulation currently present. Our applications provide excellent heat barriers that are cost-effective for home improvement.
Aerogel Is The Best!
While this polyurethane foam is not going to be the cheapest, it will do the best job. Furthermore, we will be able to apply it with ease. This type of insulation is used with a spray gun that coats the entire attic evenly in closed-cell foam. Whenever our crew utilizes this form, it is a fast and easy installation with little issues if any to note.
Cellulose Can Cause Allergies
Although it is the most ec0-friendly, that could end up being its downfall as well. Since a lot of the material is recycled, it comes from newspaper particles and other small particulates that have been known to trigger a lot of allergic reactions in people and it seems that the same can occur for this insulation. Our crew usually has to wear some kind of mask when dealing with this just so that there isn’t irritation during the process. However, over time, it may cause more problems with the air quality than you may have intended.
Fiberglass Is Truly Harmful
One of the downsides about fiberglass is that it can create serious health problems for people who don’t install it properly or are around it for too long. Since it is made of glass, small shards are constantly falling off and being thrust into the air. In cases where you have open skin or open airways, the glass particles can cut your skin and even damage your lungs. The effects can be life-threatening as the glass is not capable of breaking down can be stuck in your eyes permanently. This is why all of our professionals must wear skin coverings, breathing equipment, and protective eyewear when installing.
