The R-value is an insulating material’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulation. The R-value is used to calculate the type of insulation needed as well as the ability to protect cracks and tiny spaces.

The four types of insulation for Maine properties include:

  • Cellulose – Perfect for hard-to-access areas R-value about 3.5 per inch
  • Spray Foam – Another great choice for tiny spaces with an R-value between 3.8 and 7 per inch.
  • Fiberglass – The classic fiberglass batt has an R-value of about 3 per inch.

Basement Insulation

Mineral fiber insulation is a top choice vs. fiberglass in Europe and Canada. It’s regaining popularity here in the U.S.

Even though it’s been around for years, mineral fiber insulation offers many advantages over other products:

  • Affordability
  • Availability
  • Energy efficiency
  • Fire resistance
  • Installation more precise than fiberglass
  • Noise reduction
  • Water resistance

The insulation is made from natural stone and recycled wool. The stone is melted down and the fibrous material can be formed into boards or “batts.”

It’s not just for basements and crawl spaces. To reduce energy use (and lower monthly heating and cooling bills), mineral fiber insulation in Maine is great for:

  • Bathrooms
  • Bedrooms
  • Home offices
  • Home theaters
  • Playrooms
  • Laundry rooms
  • Storage rooms/pantries

With NorthEast Spray Insulation, you have lots of insulation options and all of them are good. The insulation professionals will partner with you to determine the best insulation product at the best price. Call (207) 797-8887 or contact us today.

Crawl Space Insulation

Crawl spaces are designed to serve as “mini-basements.” They’re usually unvented and the flooring uninsulated. Walls should be insulated and airtight. Crawl spaces are usually damp, moldy and buggy. They need to be kept dry and pest-free because your crawl space conditions can impact your IAQ (indoor air quality).

Crawl space walls should be insulated with non-water-sensitive insulation. For Maine properties, eco-friendly Roxul™ mineral fiber insulation is the best choice. It offers noise reduction in addition to fire resistance, making it popular for all types of homes and properties.

Mineral fiber insulation is made from natural stone and recycled wool fibers. This environmentally friendly product is dense and water-repellant.
