Disadvantages of Cellulose Insulation

Installation of cellulose insulation is more costly than that of a fiberglass.

When cellulose gets drenched in moisture, it can take a while before it completely dries out. Note that moisture is not good for cellulose as it reduces the R-value and may cause molds and rot over time.

Advantages of Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation can settle around without any pressure and can adapt to obstacles found in the attics.


The R-value of cellulose is about 3.5 per inch of thickness, adding more layers of insulation that adds the longevity of shingles and roof.


Cellulose insulation proves to be durable even with insects thanks to its treatment with borates.

There are a few different types of insulation that we use depending on a few factors. We use blown-in insulation and cellulose insulation. Both options get the job done with beneficial results. 


Benefits of Blown-In Insulation

Blown-in insulation is made of huge blocks of fiberglass insulation or recycled paper materials that are ground into small pieces and sprayed out into your attic. This thick layer of insulation creates a seamless blanket that covers the floor of your attic and even corners that are hard to reach leaving no spot for air to enter hence a decrease in energy bills. When installed correctly, blown-in insulation can lessen moisture penetration. More so, it regulates the indoor temperature by keeping your house warm during the winter season and cool by the summer.

The presence of a sufficient layer of blown-in insulation adds longevity to the roof and shingles. This means that the conditioned space on your attic lessens the heat on the sheathing that causes shingles to break down. Thanks to its airtight seal, blown-in insulation acts as a sound buffer and is good in preventing noise from traveling through the walls. This type of attic insulation brings no fuss in installation.  In fact, the process is simple and fast. The material is blown out from a hose to create a smooth blanket of insulation.


What is Cellulose Insulation and How it works?


​Cellulose insulation is composed of a paper or wood-based product. It acts by insulating empty spaces in a house’s structural system to cause slow conduction of heat or cold. Cellulose insulation is thick and dense making it suitable to fit in enclosed walls and can adjust on obstructions found in attics like wires.


  • ​Heavy packed bundles of cellulose are fed into an insulation blower hopper.
  • Through long tubes, the cellulose is blown out into the attic.
  • The cellulose insulation is blown out parallel to the joists. It is also permitted to fill the cavities.
