Q: Why fiberglass versus other insulation products?
A: Unlike other insulation products, fiberglass is non-moisture absorbent and is non-flammable by nature. Fiberglass insulation is primarily made of silica sand and recycled glass.
Q: Why do I need to upgrade my insulation?
A: When your home was built utility costs were much lower. Natural gas and electricity costs have increased significantly and insulation will help reduce this expense.
