A lot of people are under the impression that fiberglass insulation is the cheap option. This leads to a bit of a misconception about the quality of the product. Yes, we’re going to be able to get this type of insulation at a better price than spray foam insulation because fiberglass insulation is typically made from recycled materials primarily glass. That does mean though that you can enjoy some of the benefits of this type of insulation at the lower price tag. For example, it’s the type of insulation with simplified installation.
When Do We Recommend Fiberglass Insulation?
Some reasons for consumers to choose fiberglass insulation include: A geographic location in a mild climate where the R-Value/Inch of the insulation can be lower. If the air seal factor is less important. If the application is such that the building owner can access the space to perform maintenance from time to time, ideally annual maintenance will keep this material functioning at its peak performance. And last but often not least, fiberglass is budget friendly. We are happy to discuss these multiple factors to help decide if this option works for you.
How Long Does It Last?
This type of insulation is meant to last for a long time. We’ve been in homes where the same insulation was in place for decades. At the same time we’ve been in homes where essentially the same type of insulation wore down after 5 or 6 years. The difference mainly lies in the installation process. That’s why you want to make sure that you have someone help you out that knows what they’re doing. With proper installation even in homes or buildings that get a lot of moisture or other issues for whatever reason 15 to 20 years of service with minimal upkeep is a reasonable timeline. From there you may need more upkeep and you can have the same insulation for years and years.
A Budget Friendly Option?
We get a lot of questions about this because this type of insulation material has been branded as the budget friendly option. It is typically at a lower price point than spray foam insulation. Is this really the type of choice that you want to make based on price alone? That being said, as we’ve mentioned we actually recommend this type of insulation in some areas. We may be able to set up something for you that turns out to be a win-win on all counts.
