MINNESOTA INSULATION CONTRACTOR
The performance of your new roof goes a lot deeper than new shingles. It takes a complete system, including ventilation and insulation products, to maximize performance.
These elements work together to provide you comfort, help you save money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and extend the life of your roof. What’s more, each is backed by Owens Corning, a brand you know and trust.
Trapped heat and moisture in the attic can severely jeopardize the performance of a roof. The combination of insulation and ventilation systems helps keep excessive household moisture and heat out. As a result, the proper conditions and temperatures are better maintained in the attic and on the roof deck through the year.
Our installation installers will outfit your home quickly and correctly to create an energy-efficient barrier between the elements and your family.
DID YOU KNOW:
That up to 40% of a home's conditioned air escapes through the attic?
That adding attic insulation and sealing air leaks can help cut energy costs by as much as 20%?
That adding Owens Corning Pink Fiberglass Blown-In Insulation in your attic can reduce greenhouse emissions by over a half a ton each year?
BENEFITS OF SPRAY FOAM
Spray foam has gone mainstream. It is the preferred method of insulation on just about every construction or renovation show (green or not) and is the preferred insulation of educated contractors and architects. Why?
Spray foam insulation creates an air seal. No other type of insulation creates this seal. Converting attics into a semi-conditioned space in hot climates by closing soffits, gable and ridge vents is a positive design approach in reducing the moisture loads in houses and buildings. The air seal also prevents the radiant heat from migrating into the living area. The lower humidity levels create indoor air quality that is much more comfortable to live in.
Not only is spray foam insulation an excellent thermal and moisture barrier, the indoor air is also much cleaner. Spray foam greatly reduces pollen and dust from entering your home or office building, thus improving allergies and asthma.
LONG TERM & IMMEDIATE BENEFITS OF SPRAY FOAM INSULATION
The immediate and long-term benefits of spray foam insulation far outweigh the initial costs associated with installation. This insulating and air-sealing material provides myriad benefits. By investing in spray foam insulation you will:
Make significant heating and cooling savings every month, in some cases by up to 50%!
Improve your home’s energy efficiency by using your HVAC equipment less often thanks to spray foam’s air sealing qualities
"Right-size" your HVAC equipment because it uses less effort to heat and cool your home
Add resale value to your home should you choose to sell
Reduce amount of allergens, pollutants and moisture entering your home
Reduce danger of respiratory distress and chance of mold growth
Help improve indoor air quality, ideal for allergy sufferers
Keep you and your family warm in winter, cool in summer and comfortable all year round
Reduce the risk of drafts, hot or cold spots
Minimize airborne noise from external sources and noise from within your home (such as plumbing runs)
Protect your home against mold and mold growth
Avoid pests and critters living and nesting in your home
Add structural integrity to your home (especially with closed-cell insulation)
These immediate and long-term benefits are unmatched by traditional insulation types like fibreglass and cellulose. Fragile, fibrous and inefficient, traditional insulations cannot match the advantages of spray foam.
Insulation is an investment that can pay for itself again and again in the way of a reduction in heating and cooling costs. If you notice things such as ice dams forming on your roof because heat is escaping and causing snow to melt or you notice that your heating and cooling costs are higher than they should be, it may be time for you to have some insulation added to your home so you can stop paying more than you have to.
As your highly experienced and skilled insulation contractors, we will make sure that your home is properly insulated so you don’t have to deal with the unnecessary increase in energy costs.
Additionally, a poorly insulated attic is going to compromise the roof’s performance. It is very important to keep moisture at bay and keep heat from escaping for both your comfort and your wallet. Moisture that builds up can cause damage of its own and that damage can be quite expensive by the time you discover its effects.

Insulation is a very important part of your home because it is what helps maintain the temperature within your home. Without proper insulation, heat can escape through your roof in the winters and cause premature snow melt that leads to ice dams, as well as high heating and cooling costs.
