Cellulose Insulation

Proper cellulose insulation helps you save money on heating and provides a comfortable and healthy living space. Celluloseman, Inc. provides loose-fill blown-in and spray foam insulation installation across the GTA. We also offer insulation upgrade or top-up to meet the R values required by the provincial building codes.

Cellulose insulation offers the following advantages:

  • It is a safer, cheaper, more efficient and longer-lasting alternative than most other residential insulation products
  • Cellulose is a green, non-toxic material
  • On top of managing a constant temperature, it manages moisture and blocks sound.

Blown in Cellulose Insulation

Often, some old homes unlike recent homes, require insulation as they are under-insulated. Many homeowners would need their furnace working for a long time to keep the home warm.  The current building codes demand a minimum amount of insulation considering attics and walls. As the old homes juxtapose in this aspect, Blown-in insulation works the best. The micro materials of blown-in insulation cover up the edges and corners of your home. 

Cellulose applications:

  • For new or retrofit residential and commercial construction.
  • Applied through spraying (blowing) or in loose-fill form.
  • It can be installed beneath walls for both thermal and acoustic purposes.
  • It can be injected in closed cavities
  • Blows well and particularly effective in awkward or hard-to-get areas and edges.

Cellulose insulation facts:

  • Reduces air leakage and provides more resistance to air movement than any other loose-fill insulation
  • Most fire-resistant insulation, treated with fire retardants to meet all safety requirements and regulations.
  • No harmful emissions after installation and while drying.
  • Cellulose is the only insulation that actually manages moisture.
  • It is affordable. 

Spray-Foam Insulation

Spray polyurethane, or SPF is foam that expands when it hits the surface, eventually hardens into a virtually impenetrable barrier that blocks moisture, air, and sound. Some benefits of this type of insulation include:

  • SPF makes it nearly impossible for small pests and insects to burrow into your home
  • The foam is capable of filling the tiniest of cracks
  • Perfect for soundproofing
  • Open-cell SPF is ideal for attics and basements, while denser closed-cell foam is perfect for crawlspaces
  • Cost-effective and durable

Attic, Basement and Wall Insulation

Insulation in walls not only keeps indoor temperatures comfortable and consistent – it also creates a barrier to sound, preventing noise from travelling between rooms. Proper attic insulation, basement insulation and wall insulation can make a huge difference, and Celluloseman is the company to call. We have the expertise and extensive experience in installing a variety of insulation types, including blown in cellulose insulation, blown in fiberglass insulation  and spray foam insulation.
