Types of insulation
When choosing insulation materials, it is necessary to consider the peculiarities of climate and weather conditions. The level of heat retention in the room depends on this. LABELLWAY works with modern materials for home insulation. We advise you to read the brief characteristics.
Bulk and blown materials consist of cellulose, fiberglass, or mineral wool. Such insulation is used for attic spaces and filling the room's walls. This option is considered the most budgetary. Blowed insulation is one of the most environmentally friendly methods, as the materials are made from recyclable raw materials. But, over time, the materials settle, due to which the insulating characteristics decrease.
Styrofoam insulation boards
Styrofoam is suitable for insulating any premises and parts of buildings. Polystyrene plates are thin, and high rates of heat retention distinguish them. It is easy to cut any size from the material, which significantly speeds up the insulation work. Styrofoam must be closed with drywall. In this case, you will get excellent insulation for your home.
Butt or felt insulation is one of the most popular options. For manufacturing the material, mineral, plastic, woolen, or cotton fibers are used. The flexibility of the rolls allows you to insulate any walls and ceilings in the room.
Foam insulation is an excellent solution for uneven walls in irregularly shaped areas. The material is applied or injected into walls, under the floor, or ceiling, after which it hardens into the desired shape. Foam is characterized by high rates of heat retention and is not afraid of dampness. Insulation fills all the bumps, cracks, and gaps around pipes, window frames, and doorways.
Special machines are used to isolate large objects. For spot work with foam, we use special guns. In this way, better insulation of the room can be achieved.
Reflective insulation is a shiny material, such as foil. Cardboard or paper backing makes it rigid enough to be fixed on walls or ceilings. Such insulation is most often used in attics to prevent intense heating of the room. Reflective materials prevent heat from escaping from the home, which is why they are regularly used in hot climates.
SIP panels — dense foam, upholstered with oriented strand boards. This option is not suitable for installation on existing walls. But it can be used at the construction stage to reduce heat loss in future construction.
Insulation Concrete Blocks (ICF) are prefabricated blocks installed in the house's structure. The panels consist of a foam shell into which concrete is poured. This method allows you to achieve maximum insulation at home.
Blocks are most typically used in the arrangement of basements and basements. Less common: used for arranging ground walls. For this type of insulation, protection against moisture and insects is essential.
