The Four Types of Insulation Installed by a Toronto Roofing Company

The Four Types of Insulation Installed by a Toronto Roofing Company

When you get new insulation installed by a residential roofing company in Toronto, there are four types you can choose from.

The first type is blankets made of fiberglass and rockwool. This is the most common type of insulation used in walls and comes in large rolls and has a texture much like cotton, trapping air in between the individual fibers. It can be custom cut to fit individual spaces.
The second type of insulation is blown in and is made of cellulose and fiberglass. It comes in large blocks, which are then broken down into small pieces and blown in through a hose. This is the most common type of insulation for attics and is highly effective since it can fill tiny gaps and spaces between walls.
The third type of insulation used by a residential roofing company in Toronto is spray foam insulation, which is made of chemicals which are heated and then sprayed out through a hose. As the chemicals harden, they form millions of tiny little bubbles, which trap air and create an airtight seal.
The fourth and probably least common type of insulation is foam board insulation, a stiff board that comes in a variety of thicknesses. Like spray foam insulation, these boards contain millions of tiny bubbles which trap air. This type of insulation is usually used on the outside of houses during renovation and under concrete basement floors.
