The Different Types of Insulation
There are a couple different types of insulation IBP Tulsa offers, including:
Spray foam: Typically made of polyurethane, spray foam is applied wet and expands into thick foam. Spray foam insulation can be installed in crevices and hard-to-reach areas and can help reduce air infiltration.
Cellulose: Cellulose insulation is environmentally friendly—it consists of up to 85 percent recycled material and takes less energy to make than other insulation materials—and can be installed in any area of a home.
Fiberglass: Fiberglass, which has been used to insulate homes for decades, is available as loose-fill or batts. Fiberglass is made of tiny glass fibers and is often installed in attics but can be used to insulate walls and crawl spaces as well. It is often pink in color.
Radiant barrier: Radiant barrier insulation is made of a highly reflective surface (like aluminum foil) applied to a substrate material. Radiant barriers are ideal here in the Tulsa climate because they help your roof reflect (rather than absorb) heat from the sun.
