What do I need to do to start the process?

We want the Insulation Russellville AR process to go as smoothly as possible! Fill out the form above or give us a call at (479) 967-4663 and we will walk you through the next steps. Typically we will have an initial conversation, schedule a time to view the project in person, provide a set of options that will achieve your goal for you to choose from, then provide you with a formal proposal, once accepted we then schedule and complete the installation process in as short a period of time as is possible for you. Our mission is to make the process as smooth as it can be so you and your family can enjoy a more energy efficient home, save money, and be more comfortable on a regular basis.


When do I need to get new insulation?

The products produced today are orders of magnitude better than the products used even 10 years ago. Many of our clients still have insulation that is even older than that at 15-20 years. The main trade offs for leaving old Insulation Russellville AR rather than replacing it with newer products is that there is a high potential for structural damage, energy bills that are up to 40% higher, and much less comfort and temperature consistency throughout the home. All of these trade offs end up costing you a lot of money in the long run.


What are the benefits of blown-in insulation?

This type of insulation is typically quicker and easier to install into most homes, especially older ones which saves you money on labor and time for your insulation project. There are two types that include two similar but separate materials: cellulose and fiberglass. One of the benefits of cellulose insulation is that it is very environmentally friendly and therefore you may qualify for tax rebates for installing it. Call us to learn more about your potential for a tax rebate.


What is the craze for spray foam insulation all about?

Spray foam insulation is widely considered in the building and construction industry to be the most efficient type of Insulation Russellville AR out there. When the installation process is completed properly it serves to strengthen the “building envelope” essentially making your home more sturdy. It typically provides better moisture protection and keeps out insects and pests much better than other types of insulation. In addition, this type of insulation is able to make a structure more quiet as it serves as an “air barrier”. Finally, it can be applied to all types of materials including brick and concrete, wood and siding, even steel and other metals while maintaining viability in any climate.


Why have my insulation removed rather than installing on top of it?

It’s usually really, really gross. Even downright nasty! We run into unfortunate situations all the time where a less than scrupulous company has simply blown insulation on top of an additional layer of insulation in a structure. In these too common situations there is almost always a problem of having too much insulation in a home. In addition to the problem of over insulation we find that the lower level of insulation that is older and has simply been buried under a layer of newer insulation is both contaminated and contaminating the newer insulation on top. Pests like rodents and insects and their “activities” can be found littered throughout the old layer of Insulation Russellville AR causing all sorts of odor, sanitization, ventilation and vapor layer issues. Another reason for removing the insulation might be as simple as needing to prevent old insulation from finding its way through cracks and around light fixtures or attic doors in existing structures. One of the main benefits of removing old insulation is that it creates an opportunity to increase the efficiency of the structure through processes like duct encapsulation and attic air sealing processes that will enhance all aspects of performance once the new layer of insulation is installed.


How do you remove the existing insulation from my attic or crawlspace?

We take this very seriously and our installation specialists utilize a very effective process for ensuring that no dust, debris, or animal feces make their way into your home while performing this critical step.


Which type of insulation is best for the environment?

Cellulose insulation is by far the most environmentally sound option. Being that it is made from mostly (80%) recycled newspapers it is low impact on the environment due to most of the materials being used would have ended up in a landfill also it is biodegradable more so than the other Insulation Russellville AR materials out there. Cellulose also requires the least amount of energy to create the material than any other insulation materials.


How is the quality of insulation measured?

The industry uses something called “R-value” as a gauge on the quality of insulation in a structure as it relates to its ability to stop the movement or exchange of heat transferring inside or outside of a home. If your structure is registering a higher R-value it points to the fact that the performance is high and this is a good thing for your wallet and home efficiency score. The goal of insulating a structure is to ensure a proper R-value for the regional temperate zone that you live in and in adherence to your local building codes.


Can insulation prevent structural damage?

Yes. Heat and moisture can impact a structure very negatively over time and cost you a lot of money in repairs. A great example of insulation preventing structural damage is the way that attic insulation, when installed properly, stops water vapor from entering the attic in the first place and slows the heat buildup from damaging shingles on your roof or softening the roof deck plywood. Insulation also contributes by fending off mold that tends to accumulate in cool, dark areas that tend to get moldy when too much moisture is allowed inside the structure due to poor installation or quality of Insulation Russellville AR.
