Six Things Builders Should Know About Insulation

ProSales Magazine recently published a great article entitled “Six Things Dealers Should Tell Builders About Insulation.” As a lumber & building materials dealer, we feel that it is our duty to share these six things with you.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“Properly installed insulation can save a homeowner a bundle on energy bills, keep a house more comfortable, and make the pro who installed it a hero. Improperly installed, however, that same product will do nothing to improve the comfort or energy efficiency of a home-and can create complaints about the material, the installer, and the dealer who sold the insulation.”

The six main points of the article are:

  1. Most homes don’t need more insulation
  2. Insulation doesn’t last forever
  3. Building codes demand thicker insulation today
  4. Not every builder installs insulation correctly
  5. It’s possible to over-insulate an attic.
  6. Re-attaching or adding insulation could save a homeowner from replacing the HVAC.

To learn more about each of these points, be sure to read the full article at ProSales’ website.

Consider hiring Pro Insulators, a division of National Lumber, as your sub-contractor to make your job easier and to be sure that insulation is installed correctly on your jobs.
