Our Blown-In Cellulose Insulation Keeps Energy Bills Lower
& Is Much More Fire Resistant Than Other Options
Fiberglass Insulation Options Are NOT A Great Fit For The Cold Climate Of SE Michigan & Metro Detroit
Performance Remodeling believes if you are going to invest in attic insulation, you should always go for the best long-term value.
The best, most energy efficient choice for the cold climate of SE Michigan is blown-in cellulose insulation, and that’s exactly what we install. We can prove it’s better than fiberglass by telling you this one indisputable fact:
Fiberglass insulation loses half its R-Value when the temperature goes below 30 degrees. (R-Value is a measure of resistance to heat flow in any home improvement product that insulates. The higher the R-Value, the better it insulates).
And it doesn’t matter if you are talking about roll out fiberglass (the “pink stuff”) or blown-in fiberglass – they both are less effective when the temperature drops.
Any insulation that needs to stand up to a Michigan winter should not see this kind of big decline in effectiveness every time the temperature drops below freezing – it’s just not the best choice for our region.
We Pay Attention To The Details During Insulation
Some contractors blow-in insulation ‘willy-nilly’ without really understanding the problems that can cause. Here are 2 very common problems that can happen if blown-in cellulose insulation is not done right:
This can happen when a contractor doesn’t account for the fact that the cellulose insulation will settle. If you pay for a certain height of insulation, you should get every bit of it. We always install enough to take into account settling so you’ll get every inch you paid for.
One of the most important factors for the long-term health of your roof is that it be properly ventilated. If someone comes in and sprays insulation that blocks air flow from your soffits, that can cause big-time problems for your roof and actually makes your attic insulation less efficient too. We’re roof experts and we know exactly what to avoid so we don’t impact your roof’s ventilation.
Choose the company in SE Michigan that installs insulation the right way and pays attention to the details – they matter!
More About Cellulose Blown-In Insulation Vs Fiberglass Options
Fiberglass particles can be unsafe to touch and certainly don’t want to breathe those particles in either. And as mentioned above, fiberglass insulation is not as good an insulator as cellulose, particularly in very cold temperatures.
Cellulose insulation is also more resistant to critters and rodents than fiberglass.
And another thing we don’t like about fiberglass insulation is how easy it burns. Of course, house fires are uncommon, but in the event you have one, wouldn’t you rather have a fire-resistant material blanketing your attic instead of something that burns very easy?
