Questions to Ask Your Remodeler or Builder Pt. 1

When consulting with your remodeler or builder about the insulation options for your home, there are a number of questions you can ask them, to make sure that the insulation you’ll be getting installed is right for you. After all, you want an energy efficient home insulation that can  help to make your family more comfortable, . Here are some questions you can ask to help make sure you’re making the right home insulation choice.

Can the insulation help to maximize energy efficiency in the home? A highly effective way to do this is by creating an air barrier system in the home, which can help minimize air leakage, a major cause of energy loss. Related to this question, it might be pertinent to find out whether the insulation will adhere well to surfaces it’s in contact with, so that sagging and shifting is avoided.

How does the insulation handle moisture? It’s important to install a home insulation that restricts the flow of moisture-laden air between walls and ceilings, to help inhibit the growth of mold and mildew. Up to 99% of the moisture that passes through walls is carried by air, so having insulation that dries out quickly or repels moisture, and does not sag or break down will be of great benefit to you.


These are just a couple of the questions that you can ask your remodeler or builder, to make sure that your insulation choice is the right one for you. Contact your local spray foam insulation contractor to find out more about a safe insulation choice.
