Wet Spray Cellulose Insulation Offers Higher R-Value with A Fairly Thin Layer of Insulation - Boston, Worcester, MA

15 February 2016

The material used in wet spray cellulose insulation is made of recycled paper that is treated before being used as insulation. It primarily consists of newspaper, cardboard and other recycled paper. Because it is sourced in the recycling arena, you are helping your home and the environment when you choose this alternative.

Wet spray cellulose insulation in Worcester, MA can be used in various applications including residential housing, multi-family projects, and light commercial structures. Wherever this environmentally-conscious option is used, the wet spray cellulose insulation provides a higher R-value compared to other options. It does not need to be extra-thick to achieve the desired R-value. This allows you to save on the time spent and the material used in installation. This is why it is used in certain areas where space is an issue and the maximum R-value can be achieved with a relatively thin layer of insulation.

Wet spray cellulose is sprayed into an open cavity with a mist of water which activates the specially-formulated adhesive. While the installation process sounds easy, it needs to be performed with the knowledge and skills of an insulation specialist in order for it to be installed correctly to achieve the R-value of 3.8 per inch.
