  • Blanket insulation is what most people will immediately think of when they hear the word. Sold in batts and rolls, blanket insulation may be made of many different fibers, including fiberglass, plastic, and natural fibers. It is used in unfinished walls, including those of home foundations, and is simply fitted between studs and beams.
  • Foam and rigid board insulation has very high insulating value for very little relative thickness. It is great for interior applications, but may also be used in exterior settings so long as it is covered with weatherproof materials.
  • Blown-in insulation and spray foam insulation are both great for enclosed walls, new wall cavities, and other places that are just hard to access. Blown-in insulation is a loose-fill style, with the materials being blown or simply poured into the space. Oftentimes, recycled materials are used. Spray foam insulation is pressure sprayed into the area, and is very useful for adding insulation to finished areas. The foam will harden as it dries.
