Fiberglass batt insulation is used in any construction type, including residential and commercial, as a thermal or acoustical barrier. It is the best choice for soundproofing between rooms, and it is a top budget-friendly solution for attics, floors, and ceilings in all climate zones. Batt insulation is made of fiberglass or mineral wool (also called rock wool). Batt insulation was traditionally manufactured in rolls but is now manufactured and precut into industry-standard sizes. Batt insulation is installed with facing (called kraft-faced batts) or without facing.
Blown-in insulation fills every nook and cranny and creates an extra fluffy layer of effective insulation. It is a convenient choice that can be blown in over existing insulation or in between walls and ceiling joists without disturbing structures. Blown-in insulation can easily cover large areas and will fill in areas with tight spaces and angles. BluContractor installs blown-in for retrofit, residential, commercial, and new build construction.
Spray foam is a chemical product created by two materials, isocyanate and polyol resin, which react when mixed with each other and expand up to 30-60 times its liquid volume after it is sprayed in place.
We can apply quality insulation, with our spray foam insulation services, to multiple areas of your home. Not only will this allow you to better regulate the temperature of your house, but will save you money and reduce your carbon footprint, too.
Our team of experts have been trained in installing our high-quality spray foam insulation and other insulation types. As a result, we can successfully take on commercial projects of all sizes. All of our products meet the requirements that commercial projects need. So let us help you increase the space and structural integrity of your commercial building, as well as regulate the temperature better, and reduce your overhead costs.
Radiant barriers and reflective insulation work by reflecting radiant heat. Radiant barriers are installed in homes — usually in attics — primarily to reduce summer heat gain, which helps lower cooling costs. Reflective insulation incorporates reflective surfaces — typically aluminum foils — into insulation systems that can include a variety of backings, such as kraft paper, plastic film, polyethylene bubbles, or cardboard, as well as thermal insulation materials.
Radiant heat travels in a straight line away from any surface and heats anything solid that absorbs its energy. When the sun heats a roof, it’s primarily the sun’s radiant energy that makes the roof hot. A large portion of this heat travels by conduction through the roofing materials to the attic side of the roof. The hot roof material then radiates its gained heat energy onto the cooler attic surfaces, including the air ducts and the attic floor. A radiant barrier reduces the radiant heat transfer from the underside of the roof to the other surfaces in the attic. To be effective, it must face a large air space.
