Wet Spray Cellulose Insulation Offers A more Affordable Alternative with a Higher R-Value - Boston, Worcester, MA

16 October 2015

Wet spray cellulose insulation in Worcester, MA is one of the most affordable types of insulation for upgrading your home’s energy performance and comfort. It is commonly used in applications where the maximum R-value is desired with a relatively thin layer because of limited space in the area to be insulated. Wet spray cellulose insulation is best for applications where wall cavities are without sheet rock, such as new construction.

The material used for wet spray cellulose insulation is made of recycled paper that would otherwise be dumped in landfills. Recycled material makes this insulation a more affordable alternative for many homeowners. A special grinding machine is used to transform paper waste into fluffy, lightweight cellulose that can offer an insulation R-value as high as R4 per inch. Dry cellulose is mixed with glue adhesive which creates an even slightly higher R-value than loose fill cellulose applications. The insulation is also treated with a nontoxic borate solution so you are guaranteed wet spray insulation that has the highest fire safety rating as well as resistance to mold and insects.

Because a binder compound is added to dry cellulose, spray-on insulation will stick to itself and to other building components. Special equipment is used to apply the wet-spray cellulose insulation and the technique during installation needs the expertise of a custom insulation specialist.
