Mineral Fiber Insulation in Maine

Insulation is a key factor of the energy efficiency and performance of any home in Westbrook or the surrounding areas. It helps to keep your home cozy and warm in the frigid Maine winters, and it keeps cooling costs under control during the peak of summer.

Mineral fiber insulation is made from natural stone and recycled wool fibers (material). Fibers are non-directional (uni-directional) rather than woven fibers.

This environmentally friendly product is dense enough to keep out street noise, and it also improves your home’s fire safety while repelling water. If you are looking to insulate your home the “green “ way, high-quality mineral fiber from Roxul is our recommendation.

What’s the Difference Between Mineral Fiber and Fiberglass?

Mineral fiber insulation offers advantages over fiberglass insulation in many instances. Mineral wool insulation offers:

  • Space efficiency: Mineral wool is quite dense and has a higher R-value per inch of thickness.
  • Sustainability: Mineral fiber insulation is made from 70% (or more) recycled content, compared to the 20-30% of fiberglass.
  • Reduced noise: Mineral wool insulation is denser, so it has superior noise control properties.
  • Moisture resistance: Mineral wool insulation doesn’t contribute to rot, mold, and bacterial growth. It also retains insulating value better than fiberglass, which becomes ineffective (or much less effective) if wet.
  • Fire resistance: Mineral wool is extremely fire-resistant, much more so than fiberglass insulation.

Mineral Fiber Insulation FAQs

What is the R-value of mineral wool insulation?

The thermal resistance of mineral fiber insulation runs from R-15 to R-30. Our team can advise you which value is best for specific areas of your home.

Is mineral wool insulation safe?

Yes — and, in fact, it is fire-resistant, so it can be protective for your home and family, delaying the spread of fire. The WHO (World Health Organization) declared an early version of mineral wool to be cancer-causing; but the industry made changes to the product and the WHO declassified it as a carcinogen in 2002. However, you should always wear a dust mask when handling or cutting up any kind of insulation, including fiberglass and mineral fiber. We recommend you let the experts handle these products.
