Insulation is one of the most important aspects of any home or commercial building, which makes choosing the right insulation product a crucial decision for your project. Allow the professionals at Bellard & Watts Insulation to guide you through the process. We offer many types of energy efficient products:
Spray-foam insulation is a spray-applied plastic that can form a continuous insulation and air sealing barrier on walls, roofs, around corners, and on all contoured surfaces. It is made by mixing and reacting unique liquid components at the job site to create foam. The liquids react very quickly when mixed, expanding on contact to create foam that insulates, seals gaps, and can form moisture and vapor barriers. Spray-foam insulation is known to resist heat transfer extremely well, and it offers a highly effective solution in reducing unwanted air filtration through cracks, seams, and joints.
Spray-foam insulation that is sprayed in buildings protects against moisture, which provides the benefit of reducing the chance of harmful mold and mildew. Eliminating mold growth reduces the likelihood of rotting wood in a home, and allergic reactions to mold spores.
In addition to building temperature and moisture control, spray foam insulation is often used to reduce noise. It also serves as a barrier to airborne sounds, and reduces airborne sound transfer through a building's roof, floor, and walls.
Spray-in Custom Fiber Glass Insulation
Fiberglass wall insulation is installed as a spay-in fiber glass insulation system. It fills framing cavities completely, leaving no gaps or voids. This complete coverage results in superior thermal performance and sound control. The system uses fiber glass with 25 percent recycled content and is protected against mold growth with an EPA-registered mold and mildew inhibitor. Fiber glass insulation improves indoor air quality, because it's made without formaldehyde. It is fire-resistant and noncombustible, while providing superior resistance to heat transfer with R-values up to R-23 in a 2x6 cavity.
Blown Fiber Glass Insulation
Blown fiber glass insulation is used in residential and commercial construction as a thermal and sound absorbing insulation. It is designed for pneumatic installation in open (attic) and closed (sidewalls/floor) construction cavities. It
is made up of 30-35 percent of recycled content.
Cellulose is the spray-applied insulation tailored to your specific projects requirements for insulation (R VALUE), noise reduction, color, durability, condensation control, texture, and aesthetics. It is applied to virtually any properly prepared surface configuration of wood, steel, concrete, glass, and other common construction surfaces. It can be sprayed up to 5 inches thick overhead in one application without mechanical support. Additionally, cellulose serves as the exposed finish requiring no additional materials.
Cellulose is a total system of recycled natural fibers, chemical treatment, binding system and application method. The system begins with specially prepared cellulose fibers that are chemically treated to add resistance to fire, mold and mildew.
Cellulose insulates by creating dead air spaces between and within its hollow fibers. Because cellulose fibers are sprayed-in-place, they fill cracks, seams, and voids, forming a monolithic coating over the substrate that reduces air infiltration. Unlike prefabricated insulations, cellulose has no voids or compressed areas to reduce thermal efficiency. The result is a more effective in-place product with exceptionally low heat transfer.
