Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS AN R-VALUE?
The R-Value is a measure of the insulations resistance to heat flow, also known as thermal resistance. The greater the R-Value, the greater the resistance to heat transfer. Ever been in a house that is cold in winter and a scorcher in summer ? This is a result of little, no or under performing insulation. So, the higher the R-Value, the better the insulation will be at keeping the heat out of your home in summer or the warmth in, in winter.

Insulation keeps your home at a comfortable temperature all year round, providing protection against the cold during winter and heat in summer. It is also a good way to minimize noise pollution. Choosing the right insulation the first time around is vital to the overall comfort of your home.
WHAT R-VALUE DO I NEED ?
