Choosing Butcher Insulation for your home or business

Butcher Insulation is a leading provider of insulation solutions for homes and businesses. We provide two primary insulation product types: fiberglass and spray foam Insulation.

  • Fiberglass blowing insulation is used for both residential and commercial construction, acting as an effective thermal and sound-absorbing insulation. It's designed to be pneumatically installed in both open (attic) and closed (sidewalls/floor) construction cavities.
  • Spray foam insulation is a revolutionary soft foam and air barrier material that has become the industry standard in maximizing building envelope performance. With its pour and spray formulations, spray foam insulation represents a significant breakthrough in the science of moisture and thermal management. It’s 100% a water-blown foam insulation that reduces air leakage, increases energy efficiency, and creates a healthier indoor environment while also minimizing airborne sounds. Additionally, spray foam insulation provides greater design freedom and maintains its performance with no loss of R-value over time. It does not shrink, sag, or settle and adheres to most construction materials, making it an excellent insulation option for walls, attics, ceilings, and floors.

Either product is a great choice for homeowners or businesses who want to maximize energy savings and improve indoor air quality. We also provide professional installation services, ensuring that your insulation is installed correctly and meets all safety and building codes.

Why insulation matters

Insulation is a critical component of any building's energy efficiency. It is designed to keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer, preventing heat loss or gain through the walls, ceiling, and floor. Proper insulation can reduce your energy bills by up to 50%, and it can also make your home more comfortable and quieter. In addition, insulation is an environmentally friendly solution, as it reduces the amount of energy needed to heat or cool your home, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Types of insulation

There are several types of insulation available, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. The most common types of insulation are batts and rolls, blown-in, and spray foam insulation. Batts and rolls are typically made of fiberglass, usually in pre-cut sections that fit between studs, joists, and rafters. Blown-in insulation is made of loose fibers that are blown into the wall cavity and used for hard-to-reach areas. Spray foam insulation is a two-part liquid that is sprayed onto surfaces and expands into a solid foam, offering the highest R-value and being most effective at sealing air leaks. Spray foam insulation can be used in a variety of applications, including walls, attics, roofs, and floors. It is also resistant to moisture and mold, making it a good choice for humid environments, such as Louisiana.
