Fiberglass batts and rolls however have limitations when it comes to existing and older roof installation. As a homeowner or contractor you are wise to consider blow-in insulation as an alternative for improving any building’s insulation R-value.
The term blow-in insulation (or loose-fill insulation) refers to the process of filling roof cavities, with any loose material that has a good insulating R-value. While there are a variety of materials that can be used, at Eco-Insulation we use only cellulose fibre.
Made from 100% recycled newspaper, cardboard, and other wood-based materials, blow-in cellulose is treated with boric acid and other substances that make it flame resistant and mould-resistant. It is then packaged in tightly packed bales or bags. Installation involves the use of a mechanical blower/hopper that churns up the cellulose material with paddles to loosen it and mix it with air, then blows the fluffy insulation through hoses to wherever it is required.
Eco-Insulation offers a turnkey service, we both supply & install the insulation. Our product solution is delivered to site in our dedicated vehicles, it is then pneumatically pumped into the ceiling cavity by our own installation teams using our own specialised equipment.
Installation is quick and efficient; depending on your roofing type, installation is done either through the trapdoor or through the roof. Typically, a three-bedroom home is fully installed in three to four hours .
It's time to get some climate control with quality Roof Insulation!
Does it blow around in your roof?
The Cellulose Fibre is manufactured so that it will not move nor blow around the roof cavity and will not compact or settle after installation. This has been proven through tests and over more than 20 years of experience installing Cellulose Fibre.
