Insulation Installation for New Construction Projects
When you’re working with new construction, you want options. Every project is different, which means you need access to various types of insulation. When you’re working with IBP of Tampa, you can choose from:
- Block foam injection: Also called foam-in-place or block foam, injection foam insulation is used to insulate the cavities of masonry walls and foundations, including those made of concrete blocks, bricks and stucco.
- Fiberglass: Made of tiny glass fibers and thermally efficient, fiberglass has been used to insulate buildings for many years and comes in batt and blown-in (loose-fill) form. Although it’s frequently installed in attics, it can be used to insulate walls and crawl spaces as well.
- Spray foam: Spray foam insulation is a material made up of isocyanate and polyol resin, which, when combined, react with each other to create polyurethane, and expand to 30 to 60 times the original liquid’s volume. It’s particularly useful for insulating even the hardest-to-reach spaces.
- Radiant barrier: Radiant barrier insulation is made of a reflective surface (like aluminum foil) applied to a substrate material. The substrate materials range from cardboard to other types of insulation materials.
- Rigid foam: Rigid board insulation is available as a foam panel that can be cut easily enough. The most common sizes are 2′ x 8′ and 4′ x 8′, but the panels vary in thickness and width. Rigid foam board insulation is a great solution for insulating buildings and maximizing energy efficiency.
- Vinyl: Vinyl is often used as a facing material for fiberglass blanket insulation. Fiberglass slows the movement of hot air, helping insulate a building efficiently year-round. Then, a black or white vinyl facing laminated to the fiberglass provides a vapor barrier to prevent moisture from passing through.
- Rockwool: Made of rocks and minerals spun into small, temperature-resistant fibers, rockwool (or mineral wool) insulation is used for a variety of applications. Typically used as blown-in insulation, it’s thermally efficient and can provide soundproofing benefits.
No matter the scope of the new build project, the right insulation can add a lot of value. You also need experts you can count on. The IBP of Tampa team can help you finish your job on time and on budget.
