Insulation For Minnesota Residents

Twin Cities Attic Insulation Experts

Insulation is a hidden component of your home but plays a critical role in keeping your home comfortable. The Twin Cities region usually faces weather extremes with temperatures ranging from -30° to 100° in under six months.

At Midwest Roofing, Siding & Windows, we offer quality attic insulation to keep your home comfortable, no matter where you set the thermostat. Our attic solutions will help lower your heating and cooling bills, so you don’t have to make a choice between comfort and cost.

Why Attic Insulation is Important

Attic insulation plays several important roles. When your existing insulation is worn out, damaged, or no longer keeping the weather out as it should, you may be compromising your comfort. Updating your attic offers the following benefits:

  • Enhances energy efficiency
  • Eliminates heat loss
  • Ventilates the attic properly with air chutes
  • Saves money on heating and cooling costs
  • Helps with condensation and ice dam issues

Insulation We Install

Midwest Roofing, Siding & Windows has many options for attic insulation. We can make recommendations based on your budget and needs.

Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose is made from shredded pieces of newspaper. Blown-in cellulose is typically the most cost-effective option. Cellulose is great for air-sealing an attic with no vapor barrier. It offers a higher R-Value than most fiberglass options. 

Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass is widely-used and works great if you have an air barrier. The delicate glass fibers are made of sand and recycled materials. Fiberglass can come as loose-fill installed with a blowing machine or batts of manufactured pre-cut sheets.  

  • Blown-in Fiberglass covers large areas and is very cost-effective.
  • Fiberglass batts are a great option for smaller areas – where you only need a couple of batts, and no machine is required.

Fiberglass has the following benefits:

  • Moisture Resistance – Fiberglass batts resist moisture effectively, making them less vulnerable to mold and mildew growth.
  • Fire Resistance – Fiberglass is typically non-combustible, making it safe for installations next to your attic’s wooden structure.

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam offers unmatched insulation value and works great for tight spaces and for stopping airflow. It comes in either open-cell or closed-cell formulations. Closed-cell spray foam boasts an unrivaled R-Value of 7 per inch. Overall, spray foam offers the following benefits:

  • Airtight Seals – Once applied, spray foam expands rapidly and creates a vault-like seal. 
  • Longevity – Spray foam can remain at peak performance for several decades.
  • No Water – Spray foam resists water penetration.
  • Barrier Benefits – Spray foam can expand your building’s envelope, strengthen the structure, and provide a sound barrier.
