When it comes to a construction project, time is money. When deadlines are missed or subcontractors hit snags, an entire project can be delayed. With the scale of a commercial project, each decision becomes even more important, including choosing the best insulation contractor. If it’s time to hire a commercial insulation contractor for your next commercial construction project, here are a few things to look for:

  • Commercial insulation experience. Hire a commercial insulation contractor that has extensive commercial insulation experience. The best commercial insulation contractor should confidently answer questions about fire ratings, codes, etc.
  • Fully licensed and insured. A quality commercial insulation contractor will hold the proper insurance and licensing to perform commercial insulation work. If you have any doubt, ask.
  • Current installation techniques. The best commercial insulation contractor will recommend installation techniques to help improve performance, aesthetics and more. A professional commercial insulation contractor will be up to date on industry trends and provide recommendations to make your project even better.
  • Installer base. Hire a commercial insulation contractor that has a large installer base that can complete your installation in a timely fashion. Confirm your contractor has an adequate number of installers available to handle your project when install day comes.

When thinking of insulation, the attic area of a home is often the first space that comes to mind. Properly insulating a home goes beyond attics and includes walls, crawl spaces and more. For years, fiberglass batts have been used to insulate wall cavities. Today there are wall insulation options that provide greater energy efficiency and comfort. Here are three wall insulation methods to consider for your next new home construction or remodeling project.

  • Dense Pack Fiberglass with Air Sealing – Fiberglass is a cost effective insulator. Combining dense pack fiberglass insulation with air sealing prevents air infiltration and makes a home more comfortable and energy efficient at a cost-effective price point.
  • JM SpiderJM Spider® Plus is a fiberglass insulation that is installed in open cavities such as walls before drywall is installed. It is manufactured with interlocking fibers that spring and lock in to place without adhesive or installing behind netting. This technology completely fills any gaps and voids in a cavity with quick drying times to deliver high energy performance and help keep your project on schedule.
  • Flash and Batt – Also known as a hybrid insulation system, flash and batt combines fiberglass insulation and spray foam insulation in one application. During installation one inch of closed cell spray foam insulation is applied. Once in place, a fiberglass batt is placed over the top of the foam. This is a great option to achieve high performance and at a budget-friendly price.

There are many options to insulate walls in new homes and remodeling projects. Contact our office to learn more about these options and schedule a free estimate.
