While Spray Foam is the best option for insulating your home, some people choose to go with a cheaper option and use Fiberglass Batts insulation. Batt insulation is used in conjunction with a vapour barrier to prevent drafts and air leaks from affecting your home. At Spray Foam Masters, we can provide you with quality Batt Insulation installation done professionally.

Fiberglass Batts

What is Fiberglass batt insulation?

Fiberglass consists of a fine glass-like thread that makes sure to provide thermal resistance and keeps your home temperature balanced. The insulation is installed in pads placed between your studs, trusses, and joists, and then covered with a plastic vapour barrier to make it effective. The vapour barrier is a critical component of the insulation system. It should be done by a professional to ensure your house is insulated correctly and to ensure you have no leaks and drafts flowing in and out of your home.

At Spray Foam Masters, we have the best team of insulators with years of experience installing Batt Insulation and vapour barriers.

We recommend you choose our special team as no work is too small for us. Although it can also be installed by yourself, here are some of the safety tips:

It is made of very fine glass fiber so wear some gloves and long sleeve shirts if you will be working around it. Also, try to moisturize your face or neck area to prevent abrasion from the batts. Wear a mask so you do not accidentally inhale it. For cutting off it, just use a simple knife and cut it straight. Don't try to grab it with your bare hands, as the small fiber will leave you itchy and will be unpleasant to handle.

Types of Fiberglass Batt Insulation.

There are several types of Fiberglass Batt Insulation to look over while buying. Some are better for the explicit region of your home, so it is vital to know what kind of Fiberglass Batt Insulation you want to invest in. For example, assuming you are simply looking to replace or install insulation in an attic, it may differ from installing insulation in walls.

Fiberglass insulation comes in batts or rolls, can be blown in, and can be manufactured into sheets.

Manufacturers make Fiberglass Batts by turning exceptionally very fine strands of glass into layers or small particles depending on the sort. This insulation has about 50 years and is known to be cost-effective.

Fiberglass batts & roll insulation choices are regular since they’re so easy to install. Batts are pre-cut sheets of Fiberglass Batt insulation, and rolls are more extended forms of batts. Both are intended to slide directly into holes between wood outlines. They're valuable for controlling temperatures and acoustics and bringing down energy costs. Furthermore, they can be installed anywhere, from your upper room to your floor.
