The most common of the insulation products, fiberglass batts can be found in almost every home new and old. Fiberglass Batts come in various thickness and R-values* designed for the cavity to be insulated. (i.e., a 6" batt R-19 or R-21 for a standard 2 x 6 stud cavity) Fiberglass Batts are now Formaldehyde-Free and made from 46% recycled products, which makes them a safe and sustainable way to insulate any home. Batt insulation can also be used for sound controls in walls and ceilings, which is another way it adds to the comfort of your home. When deciding which projects to tackle first around your home or which items to prioritize on your new home here is an important statistic: Insulation saves over 600 times more energy each year than all of the compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), Energy Star Appliances, and Energy Star windows combined. (U.S. EPA, Energy Star Homes. Calculations performed by B. McNary, October 2006) *R-value stands for resistance to heat flow. Higher R-value means more resistance.
Closed-Cell Polyurethane Foam
JM CORBOND III SPF The cost of heating and cooling portion of your energy bills is rising and expected to continue to rise. According to the EPA, you can save up to 20 percent on your heating and cooling bills by adding insulation and sealing air leaks in your home. JM Corbond III closed-cell spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is one of the most effective forms of insulation. It creates a virtually impenetrable “building envelope” around the outer shell of your house, making your home more energy efficient, quieter and structurally stronger. JM Corbond III SPF also improves indoor air quality by reducing moisture accumulation. With its superior energy savings, JM Corbond III SPF will pay for itself in the long run, making it a smart investment. Additionally, an energy-efficient, comfortable home increases resale value while making it a more enjoyable and healthy living environment. What is JM CORBOND III SPF? JM Corbond III SPF is a closed-cell spray-in polyurethane foam insulation that can be installed only by a professional. Sprayed in a liquid form, it quickly solidifies and binds to the application area creating tiny foam cells that insulate. Once the foam solidifies, it forms a dense plastic air barrier that prevents outside air from infiltrating your home and conditioned air from escaping the confinements of your home. It also adds strength to your home’s structure. JM Corbond III SPF provides an extremely high R-value,* it attains an R-21 when sprayed at a thickness of 3 inches and an R-42 at 6 inches. Not only does JM Corbond III SPF provide a great resistance to air leakage, it also provides increased protection from water vapor and outstanding noise reduction. JM Corbond III SPF and its unique Lavender color have become a symbol of uncompromising quality, performance and environmental commitment. *R-value means resistance to heat follow. The higher the R-value, the great the insulating power. JM Corbond III SPF Features: •A thermal, air and moisture barrier •No Shrinking, no settling •Stronger structures •Increased living space •Energy-efficient air-handling systems •Faster, more flexible installation •A better formulation •Flexible hybrid application •Uses a zero ozone-depleting blowing agent How do JM Spray Foam Products Benefit you?

Loose Blown Fiberglass & Cellulose
JM CLIMATE PRO Thermal & Sound Control Blow-in Fiber Glass Blow-in, loose-fill fiber glass insulation is designed for open attics and hard-to-reach locations like corners, edges, and around framing. It does not shrink or settle. JM Climate Pro provides lifetime thermal performance and no settling. Average Recycled Content: 35% post consumer R-VALUE Up to R-60 Champion Insulation Cellulose Cellulose Fiber Insulation is made from recycled wood fiber, primarily newspaper. Specifically treated and processed, cellulose fiber is light and fluffy. The natural characteristics of organic cellulose trap air within and between the fibers, providing superior insulating qualities. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – Cellulose fiber is over 80% recycled content. USER FRIENDLY – NONTOXIC – Champion Insulation contains no urethane, formaldehyde or asbestos and is not considered a carcinogen. STOPS SOUND TRANSMISSION – The unique porosity and interwoven fibers create an effective sound barrier. It minimizes noises from outside as well as inside noise from plumbing and other sources. RODENTS – The fire retardant formula that Champion Insulation uses creates an unfavorable environment for rodents and insects. MOLD – The chemical make-up of Champion Insulation’s product has been found to be an unfavorable environment for mold to grow
Blown-In Wall System
Blown-In Wall System (Commonly referred to as BIBS) By using a multi-phase process of packing loose-fill insulation behind fabric netting, we are able to achieve a high-efficiency wall system with may benefits. Superior R-value (R-23) reduces energy loss making your home more energy efficient and saving money on heating and cooling bills throughout the year. Unlike batt insulation that comes in pre-formed pieces, this system packs into the wall, creating a custom fit in each and every cavity providing comfort and peace of mind. This blown-in system is also ideal for interior walls and ceilings because it can provide superior sound control in many different applications.
