InsulationSpray Foam, Cellulose, Fiberglass Batt and External Stucco Insulation plus Crawlspace Vapor Barriers
Did you know that one of the most effective ways to improve home energy efficiency is to upgrade your Northwoods area home’s insulation? There are so many options out there once you start researching insulation contractors and materials — how do you make the right choice? KV Tech Construction insulation services will help you identify the best insulation material for your home’s unique needs, using our experience to ensure your insulation upgrade is done right the first time.
What Kind of Insulation Is Best?
Choosing the right insulation material means understanding the building science behind the purpose of insulation. Proper home insulation should prevent the transfer of heat that can happen between your living space and the outdoors. This happens through the materials that make up your home, like in between your wall cavities, in the attic, and in the crawlspace or basement.
Insulation works alongside the “air seal” of your home to keep you and your family comfortable. Air sealing is closing up the cracks and gaps that exist in your home’s construction, which could undermine the hard work your insulation is putting in to prevent heat loss in the winter, as well as heat gains in the summer. Some insulation materials can also provide air sealing qualities, like installing a spray foam insulation vapor barrier, or combining your cellulose insulation with a vapor barrier.
KV Tech Construction installs the most common types of insulation used to battle all four seasons in northern Wisconsin homes:
- Spray Foam Insulation using Demilec® spray foam insulation installed by certified technicians
- Applegate Cellulose Insulation made here in Wisconsin
- Fiberglass Insulation batts or blown-in fiberglass insulation
Insulation Can Prevent Ice Dams
Did you know that poor insulation in your attic could be contributing to the formation of ice dams on your roof? Inefficient insulation above your ceiling and in the attic can allow heat to escape onto the underside of the roof, melting any snow accumulation in the winter. That snowmelt then drains to colder parts of the roof, where it can refreeze and cause damage to other parts of your home.
