Versatile Commercial Insulation Solutions

Any commercial or residential property will need a reliable insulation system to create a comfortable space and keep your energy costs low. But with so many different types of insulation available, how do you choose the suitable material for your property? At Radiant Drywall & Insulation, our specialists will help you determine the best insulation solution for your project.

Choosing the Right Commercial Insulation System

Before you decide on an insulation system, you need to understand that one type isn’t necessarily “better” than the other. Based on a recent study by the Building Science Corporation, all insulation types are equally effective as long as they are installed correctly.

That said, focusing on your commercial property’s specific details will help you determine which system works well with your project. From small convenience stores to corporate warehouses, every type of building has its own size, building materials, function, and users. The more you consider these factors, the easier it’ll be to decide on an insulation type that will meet your property’s needs.

3 Common Types of Commercial Insulation

While there are many different insulation materials, here are three of the most common types you’ll find for commercial properties:

Batt Fiberglass Insulation

Batt insulation is an affordable and eco-friendly option for your project. Most batts and rolls are mainly made of fiberglass but can also contain wool, natural fibers, and other minerals. Besides reducing your energy bills by up to 30%, batt insulation can also be used as soundproofing to minimize noise from traveling through the wall. This material is also available in many different sizes, so we can adjust the material’s thickness to fit your property’s needs.

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam is a flexible insulation system that can be an effective air barrier even in the tiniest cracks of your property. This characteristic makes it a reliable choice if you have a nontraditional building design or if some areas of your building are prone to air leaks. Unlike other commonly used materials, spray foam is also water-resistant, making it ideal for preventing moisture and mold buildup.

Foam Board or Rigid Board Insulation

Rigid board insulation is an excellent choice to add solid exterior wall sheathing. Its sturdy interior sheathing is also helpful if your building has a basement or an attic hatch. With its R-value ranging between R-4 and R-6.5 per inch, it’s twice as effective at thermal insulation when comparing other materials of a similar thickness level, especially in larger spaces. However, despite its reliability, rigid board installation can often be more expensive than other insulation systems.
