At Choice Roofing Group we pride ourselves on offering you and your family a myriad of options in Green insulation materials. Choosing to “Go Green” when installing attic insulation is a decision that will not only help the environment, but also your health. Green insulation is produced with processes that are environmentally responsible from conception, construction and all the way to demolition. These materials efficiently use water, energy and all other resources in their construction. This significantly reduces the amount of pollution and waste when compared to traditional methods. There are three main choices depending on your home and attic insulation needs:
Mineral Wool (also known as rock wool) insulation is a great choice for homeowners wanting to get the most sound dampening out of their insulation. Rodents and other pests also find this type of insulation to be unpleasant. So that means no unwanted house guests! Mineral Wool has an energy efficiency between fiberglass and cellulose. This, combined with choosing spray or batt installation, make it a great choice for new construction or retrofitting.
Sheep Wool Insulation:
Sheep wool insulation is a natural, abundant and Eco-friendly choice to install in your home. This is a great choice for the homeowner seeking a natural fire and vermin resistant material that is also acoustically superior. At the end of it’s life-cycle as your home insulation sheep wool can be recycled, reused or simply thrown away seeing as it is completely biodegradable!
If choosing cellulose insulation you can rest assured that you are using a very Eco-friendly insulation. This type of insulation is composed of 80% recycled newspapers along with other recyclables. It has a Class A Fire Rating from the National Fire Protection Assn. and also is a extremely unfavored by rodents and insects. Cellulose is very comparable to fiberglass in it’s cost.
