Insulation for Michigan Homes

Although insulation material is unnoticeable because it’s hidden from view, it’s vital to the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.

It helps keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, and your utility systems working normally at all times. This results in a comfortable indoor atmosphere, with minimal energy consumption.

As with any other home component, however, the effectiveness of insulation material tends to diminish over time. This can be caused by leakage, poor installation, and other natural factors.

Whether you need to replace your existing insulation or insulate a new home, we’re here to help.


Your Home Probably Needs More Insulation

Per the United States Department of Energy, 1 in 5 homes constructed prior to 1980 have enough insulation. That means 80% of the homes built in Michigan before 1980 need more insulation. Is your home one of those? If so, contact us for a free consultation. We can help you save on energy costs and make your living space more comfortable!

Types of Insulation We Offer

You can reduce your energy costs by investing in insulation. Reinforcing your home insulation can help you save up to 20% on your heating and cooling costs, which is noticeable savings in your pocketbook. Here are the types of insulation we offer:

Blown-In Insulation

Sometimes referred to as blowing wool or loose-fill insulation, this type of insulation is blown into a space, making it ideal for spaces that are irregular in size and shape. Areas that have low ceilings or are difficult to access, such as the attic, can also benefit a lot from this type of insulation.

Rolled Insulation

Since insulation has a standard shape, it is meant to be used in easy to access areas that have flexible spacing. It can also be used in irregular spaces, but needs to be cut to fit properly.

We use fiberglass insulation for our services, and customize each project to optimize your home’s efficiency. Brands of insulation we like and use include Owens Corning and Johns Manville.

Insulation FAQs

What is insulation made of?

Fiberglass insulation is made from extremely fine glass fibers, and it is either spun or blown. Today, many manufacturers are making more sustainable fiberglass insulation and use up to 40-60% recycled glass in their products.

What is R-Value for insulation?

R-value is a rating that indicates the insulating power of a material. It indicates how well insulation can keep heat from entering or leaving your home. Essentially, the higher the R-value, the better insulated your home will be. While R-value is a helpful indicator, it’s not the only factor that should be considered when insulating your home.

Will adding insulation reduce my energy costs?

Yes! A properly insulated and ventilated attic space can reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 20-30%.
