Looking for a comparison chart for insulation


Postby PatHIverson » Tue Sep 28, 2010 7:06 pm

We are renovating a house. We are DIYers and not to knowledgeable in the field. We do know that insulation is needed for the attic and we would like to know what types are available.

We have found that spray foam insulation is a reputable company and wondering if there might be a comparable source.
Thanks in advance.

Cheers

I've used that company too, and I thing their green spray foam insulation is a great product too. Very easy to use if you follow the instructions.

Are you wanting to insulate at roof level or ceiling level?

There are numerous insulations: blown celulose fibre, mineral fibre, glass fibre, polystyrene (EPS), polyurethane (PUR). They have different pros, cons and costs. You will need to give some more details for further advice.
