How long does insulation last anyway and does it degrade over time? Although most types of insulation have a life span much longer than homeowners might think, these life spans are for ideal conditions only. Your home may have less-than-ideal conditions for keeping your insulation effective.
Insulation plays an important role in keeping your home comfortable. Properly installed insulation can help regulate temperatures, improve energy efficiency, and reduce utility costs.
Blown In - Fiberglass insulation is one of the most cost effective ways to keep your home insulated and comfortable. A majority of homes suffer from inadequate insulation levels, reducing their energy efficiency and overall capacity for keeping a consistent temperature. With Mairathon’s blown-in insulation services, we can replace and remove old insulation or add new insulation to keep your home shielded from the weather.
Spray Foam (Open and Close Cell Foam) - Spray Foam is a spray-applied insulation that offers flexible coverage for those hard to insulate areas. Applied as a liquid, the foam then expands and creates a locking barrier that serves to insulate and seal in spaces where it’s applied.
Closed-Cell: Generally a thicker, heavier foam that may act as a barrier for air and vapor while providing some structural benefit.
Open-Cell: A less dense foam that acts as a barrier for air, may also provide some level of noise reduction.
