When building a new home there are many decisions to make! It’s easy to overlook preparing your home for extreme temperatures in exchange for things like choosing countertops, flooring and more.

Failure to give your new home’s energy efficiency the proper attention can cause problems like higher energy bills, equipment malfunctions, pest issues and more. If you’re building a new home, here are three critical steps to help make your home energy efficient and comfortable:
  1. Sealing Air Leaks
    Air sealing is one of the least expensive and most effective ways to help reduce energy loss and keep energy bills low. A leaky home can waste approximately 10 to 15 percent of a home’s heating dollars. Air leaks are found around doors, windows, wires, electrical outlets, ducts and more. Sealing these penetration points will dramatically increase the comfort of your home.
  2. Installing Upgraded Attic Insulation
    Fiberglass insulation is a great way to add R-value to an attic. Upgrading the attic of a new home with spray foam insulation will seal air leaks and add R-value with one step. Spray foam insulation can also minimize external sound bleed and add strength to your home.
  3. Sealing and Insulating Your Crawl Space or Basement
    An uninsulated crawl space or basement can have a huge impact on the comfort of your home. Both areas are in direct contact with the ground and any moisture. When your basement or crawl space is cold and damp, this can cause the floors of your home’s main level to be cold and dramatically affect your comfort. Properly sealing and insulating your crawl space or basement can pay off.

When it comes home insulation, the first area that comes to mind is the attic. Airflow in buildings moves from ground to sky, naturally pulling conditioned indoor air up and out of a structure. Proper attic insulation helps keep conditioned air inside your home and helps keep your home comfortable. To help you choose the best attic insulation option for your new home, we’ve rated three popular methods:

Good: Blown-in Fiberglass
Adding blown-in fiberglass insulation to a new attic is a quick and easy way to increases R-value. This basic method of attic insulation is a cost-effective option.

Better: Blown-in Fiberglass with Air Sealing
Insulating and sealing air leaks dramatically improves the energy efficiency of a new home. The first step is to seal penetration points around the attic floor. After air sealing is complete, a blanket of blown-in fiberglass insulation is installed. This method helps keep conditioned air inside the home and adds R-value.

Best: Spray Foam Insulation
Installing spray foam insulation in the attic of a new home provides optimal energy protection. Spray foam is installed along the roofline to create a thermal barrier along the attic ceiling and seal any air leaks. This application provides the best energy benefits available in one easy step.

Adding insulation to your attic is one of the most cost-effective ways to save money on your energy bills each month. Wondering which insulation method is right for your new home project? Have questions on one of the methods or other insulation options for a new home? Contact our office today!





Fiberglass insulation and spray foam insulation are two of today’s most popular building insulation products. Fiberglass insulation has a competitive price point and spray foam insulation has air sealing benefits. Flash and batt installation brings together these two products in one application for use as new home insulation, commercial insulation and industrial insulation.

Flash and batt is also known as a hybrid insulation system. Flash and batt provides the benefit of air sealing with spray foam insulation at a lower price point than full foam. This is a great option for a contractor looking for air sealing and is mindful of a tight construction budget.

In a flash and batt system, one inch of closed cell spray foam insulation is applied. Once this is dry, a fiberglass batt is placed over the top of the foam.

Flash and batt insulation is a good insulator to consider if you are looking for the air sealing benefits of spray foam insulation at a lower price point than full spray foam.

Different types of insulation can be helpful depending on the project. Mineral wool is a great option to insulate commercial and industrial projects. What is mineral wool? Mineral wool insulation is also known as rock wool insulation or slag wool insulation. It is manufactured in batt and loose-fill forms, and can be used to insulate any area of a building. In addition to insulating commercial and industrial projects, mineral wool can be used to insulate residential homes.

Here’s a bit about what makes mineral wool insulation unique:

  • Mineral wool is manufactured from basalt, a volcanic rock, and is naturally fire retardant. This can be of particular interest in commercial and industrial construction projects.
  • Mineral wool has high thermal performance. It can withstand temperatures of over 700 degrees, making it ideal for commercial or industrial insulation applications that are exposed to extreme heat.
  • Mineral wool is naturally very moisture resistant. It retains its insulating qualities even when wet, making it a great option to insulate a space that faces moisture issues.

Comprehensive Commercial Insulation Options

Delmarva Insulation at Construction Site

Fiberglass

Fiberglass batt insulation is available in widths suited to standard spacing of wall studs, and ceiling or floor joists. Blown-in fiberglass insulation can be installed in nearly any space. It can be dense packed into closed cavities

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is a two-in-one product, insulating and air sealing in one step. Our commercial insulation contractors install both open cell spray foam and closed cell spray foam. To learn more about our spray foam insulation options, visit our Spray Foam page.

Spray Foam Insulation In Progress
Open cell spray foam has a density of 0.5 pounds per cubic foot. It is made up of cells of foam that are not completely closed. The cells are broken and air fills all of the "open" space inside of the material. Open cell spray foam insulation has an R-value of 3.4 to 4.5 per inch.

Closed cell spray foam has a density of 2.0 pounds per cubic foot. The cells are closed and packed tight together. They are filled with gas that helps the foam rise and expand. Closed cell foam is very dense, and therefore has greater insulating properties and can also increase building strength during high winds and storms. Closed cell spray foam insulation has an R-value of 5.4 to 7.2 per inch.

Flash and Batt

Flash and batt installation brings together two of the most popular insulators: spray foam insulation and fiberglass batt insulation. This technique is used in wall cavities in the following two-step procedure. First, one inch of closed cell spray foam insulation is applied to the target area. Once the closed cell spray foam is in place, a fiberglass batts are placed over the top of the foam. The result is an insulation solution that provides all of the benefits of air sealing with spray foam insulation at a lower price point than full foam.

Mineral Wool

Mineral wool insulation offers the R-value found in other insulation products and is a fire resistant. Made of inorganic fibers derived from basalt, a volcanic rock, these materials are naturally fire resistant. It can reduce the spread of a fire and provides valuable extra minutes to save people and property, and reduce environmental damage.
