Fiberglass Insulation

Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation

The most notable advantages of fiberglass insulation include:


Compared to other insulation methods, fiberglass insulation is relatively inexpensive. If you’re on a budget but wish to insulate your property professionally, fiberglass insulation can meet your needs.

Easy Installation

As long as you hire the skilled technicians at Butcher Insulation, you won’t have to wait long for fiberglass insulation to be installed. It offers a simple installation process so you can begin to reap its benefits in no time.

Moisture Resistant

Fiberglass does an excellent job of resisting moisture, making it ideal in high humidity areas. Its ability to resist moisture also makes it less susceptible to mold and mildew growth, which is often seen with other insulation materials.


Due to its composition of sand and recycled glass, fiberglass won’t catch on fire. If it is placed directly under a flame, it will simply melt, not burn, making it an extremely safe option.


If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, you can’t go wrong with fiberglass insulation. It's made of renewable resources and offers a “green” way to save on energy and create a more comfortable environment.

Fiberglass insulation is the most common type of insulation. Hence its name, it’s made of fine glass fibers, including raw materials, like silica sand, limestone, and soda ash. Fiberglass may also contain borax, calcined alumina, feldspar, and kaolin clay.

Since fiberglass is free of additives and fire resistant, it doesn’t pose any health risks or safety hazards. If you’re looking for a safe, effective, and affordable insulation solution, Butcher Insulation may suggest you go the fiberglass route.

How Fiberglass Insulation Works

Once it's professionally installed by our experienced technicians, fiberglass will slow the spread of heat, cold, and sound in your home or business. It traps pockets of air, ensuring warmth in the winter and cooler air in the summer. This leads to greater comfort for anyone who spends time in your space.

Fiberglass Insulation and R-Value

R-value shows how well an insulation restricts heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Since you can double or even triple the amount of material used, fiberglass insulation can allow for a high R-value and give you some much needed peace of mind.


Top Off

Over time insulation begins to degrade and your home begins to lose R- Value. Topping off your attic with fiberglass insulation will help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
