Blown Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass is a man-made product that is composed of natural materials such as sand and recycled glass; the ingredients are melted and spun to create small strands of fiberglass that together form glass wool.

Fiberglass' other "Green" attribute, like other types of insulation is its insulating power that reduces energy use in homes and buildings.

Blown Cellulose Insulation

is a product composed primarily of recycled newsprint that has ben treated for fire and pest resistance, with an R-Value 3.6 per inch, cellulose is a good insulator. 100 pounds of cellulose contains approximately 80-85 pounds of newsprint and the manufacturing process uses little energy to produce the product, making

a very "Green" product as well.

An under insulated attic loses approximately 30% of the homes energy. Blown fiber insulation's low cost per square foot combined with its energy saving attributes makes strong economical and enviomental sense when deciding to re-insulate your attic.
