Spray Foam Insulation. Most folks think that spray foam insulation is the premier form of attic insulation available on the market. However, it actually consists of tiny fiberglass beads that are combined with a synthetic liquid that has a vapor lubricating effect. In addition to acting as a vapor barrier, spray foam insulation is also used to stop molds and bacteria from growing. Because of this, spray foam attic insulation is often considered one of the strongest forms of insulation available on the market today.
R Value R-value (or radiant resistance) is a calculation that is used in comparing insulating materials to gauge the amount of heat loss that is experienced. If you are shopping for attic insulation, it’s a good idea to talk to an expert who can give you a better understanding of how certain kinds of materials perform in different climates and temperatures. The calculations involved are not overly complicated and anyone can do them. Keep in mind that the higher the R-value, the more resistance to heat flow will be experienced – so make sure that you choose a product with a high R-value to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
