Frequently Asked Questions

Not sure where to start when it comes to insulation? Here are some frequently asked questions to help point you in the right direction.

How much does spray foam insulation cost?
While spray foam insulation is more expensive than batt or blown insulation, its benefits far exceed any other insulation options. You will receive a much higher return on your investment, saving between 30%-50% on your annual energy costs, and your heating and air conditioning systems will work much more efficiently.

Do I have to remove the old insulation before installing new insulation?
No. Fiberglass  insulation can actually be added on top of old insulation, unless the existing insulation is wet. Wet insulation can lead to mold, mildew, and rotting ceiling rafters, so be sure to check for wetness and complete any repairs before installing insulation.

What is the difference between spray foam and traditional fiberglass insulation?
Made from melted sand, fiberglass insulation has a loose fiber that can be installed into framing with batts or blown into open cavities. However, fiberglass insulation is not an air barrier, so energy can escape easily. Spray foam installation, on the other hand, is applied in liquid form that expands to fill every nook and cranny, sealing the house and creating a continued thermal envelope. It insulates and seals air leaks in one step.

What is hybrid insulation?
Hybrid insulation combines spray foam with conventional insulation to create a cost-effective alternative to using spray foam alone. During the insulation installation process, spray foam is applied first. Once the foam has cured, the remainder of the cavity is filled with fiberglass insulation.
