Fiberglass insulation is composed of extremely fine glass fibers. Most fiberglass insulation is made with up to 40% recycled glass content. Fiberglass insulation is the most common and most popular form of insulation. It is installed in unfinished walls and ceilings, attics, and under floors with crawl spaces. We install two forms of fiberglass insulation: (1) batts (or pieces) and loose-fill.
Fiberglass batt insulation comes in pieces that can be cut to fit into the open framing of your structure. The batts come in a variety of R-values, and in different widths to fit tight into either wood or steel framing. If there is limited cavity space, a high density batt can be used. A high density batt has a higher R-value with the thickness of a batt with a lower R-value.
Fiberglass loose-fill insulation is made from molten glass that is spun or blown into fibers. Loose-fill insulation must be blown in using an insulation-blowing machine. It can be installed in open spaces (like attics) or in already finished areas (like walls in an existing house). The R-value of fiberglass loose-fill insulation is determined by how thick the installed layer is.
