Spray Foam and Cellulose Insulation

You wouldn’t leave your windows open when your heating and cooling system is running, that would be a waste of energy. But without high-quality insulation, you’re still throwing money away. At Better World Builders, we help our customers lower their heating and cooling bills through high-performance insulation options.

Better World Builders offer two main types of insulation that are both significant upgrades from the old, pink-fiberglass batt insulation. Pink-fiberglass batts simply fit between the studs in your ceilings and walls and are only as effective as the quality used to install them. Along with air sealing, the cellulose and spray foam insulation Better World Builders uses fill these gaps completely, minimizing leaks or drafts and cutting down on moisture.

Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation is for use in attics, floors, walls and hard to reach areas of Portage, MI, area residential or commercial new construction and re-insulation applications. Comprised of recycled newspaper and naturally occurring minerals with fire resistant, mold resistant, and insect resistant properties.

Compared to fiberglass insulation cellulose has a better insulation efficiency and better sound insulation and higher R-value (thermal resistance, the higher R-value the more a material prevents heat transfer). A smart alternative to fiberglass, cellulose is both effective and environmentally friendly and it offers more than just energy savings. With cellulose insulation from Better World Builders, you’ll also enjoy a warmer indoor environment in the winter and a cooler one in the summer.

Cellulose insulation is installed using an insulation blower, allowing the fibers to flow through a long hose being blown into the space. The machine can densely pack the fibers, creating an even layer of insulation that fills all gaps.

Spray Foam Insulation

At Better World Builders, we offer high-quality closed cell spray foam insulation for local Portage, MI, area homes and businesses alike. Closed cell spray foam insulation is for use in attics, floors, foundations, rim joists, walls and metal buildings or pole barns.

It is highly moisture resistant and adhesive, making It very effective for sealing large gaps and in areas where moisture and drafts are prevalent, while also deterring mold. Spray foam not only insulates structures well but because of its expansive nature, it seals all the nooks and crannies that would otherwise have been left exposed by other insulation types. Because it is such a powerful insulator and provides an air-tight seal it provides incredible energy savings too!
