Insulation breaks down into two main types, bulk insulation and reflective insulation:

Bulk insulation comes in batts, rolls, and boards. This is typically used in cooler climates and is usually made from glass wool, recycled paper, natural wool, or polyester.

Reflective insulation is more commonly used in hotter more sunny climates. The shinier materials help keep homes cool in the summer by reflecting heat. The reflective foil is usually laminated onto paper or plastic.

Reasons insulation is important for your project:

  • Reduce your energy bills!
