How Can Insulation Add Value to the Home You’re Building?

As a home builder, you have to make lots of choices when it comes to materials. One that should be at the forefront of your build is insulation.

At Installed Building Products of Tampa, we help builders and contractors like you select the right insulation products for your construction project. It’s easier to install the best possible insulation during construction than to retrofit it later, so let’s work together to get it right the first time.

Partner with IBP of Tampa to ensure your new construction projects are beautifully built and boast superior energy efficiency and comfort.

How Much Insulation Do You Need?

Insulation Climate Zones Map of U.S. Color-coded by zone.

The Tampa area is in insulation zone 2. Unlike colder regions, our insulation needs to protect against year-round heat and stifling summers.

For gas and oil heat pumps and electric furnaces, homes and buildings need:

  • Attic: R30–R60
  • Cathedral ceiling: R22–R38
  • Wall cavity: R13–R15
  • Wall insulation sheathing: None
  • Floor: R13 for heat pumps, R19–R25 for furnaces
  • Uninsulated attic: R30–R60
  • Existing insulated attic: R25–R38
  • Attic floor: R13–R19

Energy-Efficient Benefits of New Insulation

Because it improves energy efficiency, insulation can make any house more valuable. Homeowners are likely willing to pay more for energy efficiency in new homes. In a 2021 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) survey, energy-efficient upgrades are at the top of the list for home buyers.

Boost the Market Value of Your New Build

According to Home Innovation Research Labs (a subsidiary of the NAHB), homebuyers consistently indicate these categories as most important: healthy place to live, lower operating costs (energy-efficient home) and contribution to a sustainable lifestyle.

Insulation can help you build a home that hits all these marks.

Make Sure Your Home Is Built To Last With Premium Insulation

Without the proper amount of insulation, a home is more susceptible to air leaks, foundation and siding damage and more. Insulation helps a home maintain its structural integrity, which can help you protect your company’s reputation and enhance your credibility as a builder of high-quality, durable homes.
