Exterior Wall Insulation in Denver, CO
What to Look at When Choosing Insulation
When it comes to home insulation, every homeowner has different needs. As you contemplate insulating your home, you would be well-served to work with a professional Denver wall insulation company like Red Rocks Insulation. As part of the process, we would enjoy educating you about how to select the right insulation. We would suggest you consider the following criteria.
Insulation efficiency relates to an insulation’s ability to deflect heat. Each type of insulation gets a R-Value rating with the higher ratings being better.
Each type of insulation has a different capacity to retard the spread of fire. Some insulations are naturally fire retardant while others need to be treated with fire retardant chemicals prior to installation.
Some types of insulations are more dense than others. That matters because higher-density insulations are better at reducing noise passing from one area of the home to another.

How You Save Money With Wall Insulation
It’s true that insulating your home could lead to a significant reduction in your monthly energy costs. How?
Let’s assume you set your thermostat at 70 degrees year-round. With the proper energy efficient wall insulation, it is easier to defend the home against warm air in the summer and cold air in the winter. Effectively, this results in putting less strain on your HVAC system to control your home’s temperature. Less stress on your HVAC will translate to less stress on your monthly energy bill.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which types of home insulation are rated most energy efficient?
That would depend on a number of factors including the climate in your area and the style/size of your home. With that said, you could maximize your energy cost savings with spray foam insulation or maybe really dense fiberglass or cellulose batts.
How long will it take to do exterior wall insulation?
Again, we would need additional information before we could make a realistic time estimate. We would need to know the style/size of your home, the materials with which your home was built, and the type of insulation you would want to be used for the wall insulation process. Generally, we aim to finish every job in less than a full day.
My home was built with predominantly wood materials. Since I’m concerned about fire, which type of insulation would you say is most fire-resistant?
If a fire is one of your top concerns, we would probably recommend that you consider choosing a fiberglass batt option. The fiberglass and plastic materials are naturally fire-resistant. If installed in batts, you would need to be slightly concerned about the backing materials used to form the batts.
Will I be charged for your consultation services?
No. We offer our expert insulation consultations free of charge. Our goal will be to educate you about home insulation and help you make the right choice for your home. If everything is agreeable, we would then proceed to give you an estimate and move forward to schedule an installation date that fits cint your schedule.
