WeatherGard Attic & Wall Insulation

Proper insulation helps to protect the environment

Help protect the environment

Insulating your home helps to minimize your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of energy you consume, which is by-and-large produced—whether electricity or natural gas—using fossil fuels. In fact, if every building in the United States were properly insulated, the country would save 800 trillion BTUs of energy per year, and would enjoy substantial air quality benefits as a result (according to a recent Harvard University study on energy inefficiency).

By eliminating drafts while ensuring that every part of your home retains heated and cooled air more effectively, insulating your home will help to make you more comfortable, no matter the time of year.

Roof

During the winter months, snow and ice build up on top of your roof. If your attic isn't properly insulated, heat from your home moves into the attic, and warms the roof to the point that the underside of the built up snow and ice can melt. This creates a layer of water, trapped between the still-frozen snow and ice above, and your roof below. This process rots and destroys thousands of roofs in Michigan every winter.

Furnace and air conditioner

Since your air conditioner and furnace have to work harder in an uninsulated home to replace air that is lost, having WeatherGard properly insulate your home can extend the lifespan of your heating and cooling systems. This can save you significant money over the long term.

Blown-in Loose-fill insulation

Blown-In Insulation

In most attic insulation projects, there are a number of hard-to-insulate spaces to be dealt with. Selecting a blown-in insulation ensures that every hard-to-reach space, as well as every tiny crack and crevice is covered. WeatherGard insulation experts can help you choose between fiberglass and cellulose loose-fill insulation (see below).

Loose-fill Fiberglass

Insulating your attic with blown-in fiberglass is a terrific way to keep your home's heated and cooled air from escaping, while making a safe choice for your family—WeatherGard uses only formaldehyde-free Climate Pro® fiberglass by Johns Manville, so you don't have to worry about the worrisome possible negative health effects of the insulations sold by many of our competitors.

Loose-fill Cellulose

In addition to offering all of the benefits of other loose-fill insulation, cellulose is especially environmentally friendly. It is made from 80% post-consumer recycled newsprint, and therefore has only slight impact upon the environment and also helps to free up landfill space.

Wall foam insulation

Wall Foam

Wall foam insulation acts both as an insulator and as an air barrier, provides all the benefits of air-tightness detailing (e.g., caulking) while providing all the thermal, energy, and sound benefits of a highly effective insulation.

Since our foam insulation is formaldehyde-free and highly fire resistant, having WeatherGard insulate your walls will not only make your home more comfortable and more energy efficient—it can help to keep you and your family safe, as well.

Open-cell foam insulation

Open-Cell Foam

Open-cell foam insulation is particularly effective in insulating and sealing attics, since it is both an air barrier and offers excellent thermal efficiency as an insulator. The foam is extremely fire resistant, water-based, formaldehyde-free, and creates protects you and your family from mold, dust and other allergens. Since open-cell foam is classified as a low-emitting material, you can be assured that the foam will never give off fumes or fine particulate matter which could harm or irritate anyone in your home.
