Insulation Installation in Elk Grove
Your insulation governs your indoor comfort while keeping your energy bills low. Few other building materials are quite as influential in your day-to-day life.
Gold Star Insulation, a part of the Installed Building Products family of companies, has one goal—to make your life easier. With the right insulation, we can do this. We install:
- Spray foam
- Rigid foam board
- Radiant barrier
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam is the champion of crevices and corners. It can seal and insulate even the toughest cracks, so it’s usually used to seal wall and door barriers. Its thermal insulation is almost unbeatable, particularly when you use high-density polyurethane options. Pressurized two-component foam can manage larger areas.
Home Insulation in Elk Grove
Too many homes in the Elk Grove, California area, don’t have enough insulation—but the Gold Star Insulation team will make sure yours isn’t one of them. Our retrofit (existing home) insulation services can help you save money and live more comfortably all year long. Our team insulates attics, walls and crawl spaces.
Signs your home may need more insulation include:
- Energy bills that are higher than normal
- Drafts, especially near windows and doors
- Uneven temperatures from room to room
- Your HVAC systems running more than usual
- Unusually warm second story
- Unusually cold walls and floors
- Ice dams on your roof
In addition to re-insulating homes, we also offer residential new construction insulation. Our team can work with your home building team to help ensure your home is as energy-efficient as possible.
Your attic is one of your home’s draftiest rooms, so it needs excellent thermal performance. Its recommended R-value is R-38, which translates into 10 to 14 inches of insulation material. You can layer different materials to really fill up those small, tough-to-fill nooks, combining spray foam and blown-in cellulose with fiberglass for optimum results.
Your home is only as cozy as its flooring, so you need to pay careful attention to your crawl spaces. The Department of Energy recommends an R-value of R-25 in regions with chilly climates. Blown-in cellulose, fiberglass batts and spray foam are popular options for their capacity to fill up tight spaces. We love Owens Corning and CertainTeed for fiberglass insulators and Dow or Thermax for spray foam.
Few rooms are as poorly insulated as garages. They’re often the reason for high utility bills, partly because they often share a wall with your home. Your garage door alone requires a minimum R-value of R-10, which can raise your garage temperature by an impressive 12 degrees in chilly midwinter. Garage insulation can also push up your property values, offering a return on investment of almost 100%. Walls and ceilings can benefit from reflective foil, foam and fiberglass insulation. Unlike crawl spaces, your garage materials need to contribute to the room’s aesthetic value. Pre-cut fiberglass and polystyrene panels are popular go-to options.
Insulation Removal & Replacement
Heating and cooling account for 44% of the electricity spent on American homes, so your insulation is an important contributor to your monthly budget. Even so, no insulating product lasts forever. Foam and batts are prone to collecting moisture, so their insulating value is easily lost. If your insulation is infested with rodents, it’s time to remove and replace it. Gold Star Insulation will seal off your drafty spaces using the finest brands on the market.
