Fiberglass batts are one of the most commonly used insulation materials today. While there have been significant advancements in insulation technology and new products have been introduced into the market, fiberglass is still considered to be efficient and useful. Installation is quick and easy, making it a good option for a range of applications and budgets. At Absolute Drywall Construction, we use this material in many of our commercial insulation projects.
Why is Fiberglass so Popular?
We are proud to say that we are one of the best drywall insulation contractors in Northern Virginia and have handled a large number of these projects in various commercial establishments. Over the years, we’ve observed that apart from better thermal performance and energy efficiency, this material has a number of other great qualities such as:
- Ease of Installation – The installation is pretty straightforward; however, it’s a specialized job; we measure it carefully and ensure that we don’t cut too much or too little. The batts should be a natural fit as compression and gaps between the sheets will compromise its insulation ability.
- Resistance to Moisture – Fiberglass doesn’t hold water; that means it dries very quickly, not allowing mold etc. to form. However, we conduct thorough checks during the installation to ensure that the batts aren’t wet.
- Fire Resistant – These batts are made from non-combustible materials such as recycled glass and sand.
These are the reasons why it’s a good idea to use fiberglass batts for insulation. We’re well-established and experienced drywall insulation contractors in Washington D.C. and will ensure your fibreglass batts are installed the way they should be.
Hire the experienced contractors
Fiberglass batts usually have a high R-value. If you install a good quality batt, you’ll see a significant reduction in your energy bills. In the 12 years since we’ve been in this industry, we’ve noticed that fibreglass offers great insulation. However it’s important that all the walls be properly covered with it.
Gaps in the batts will only compromise the insulation. For example, if there is a small gap between the batts at one end of a room, that corner would be cooler or warmer than the rest of the room, depending on the weather outdoors. Proper installation is key to achieving the best insulation and that is what you are assured of when you hire our services.
