Insulation Installation for New Home Construction

We specialize in all types of insulation and can install different materials for any residential project:

  •  Fiberglass: Batt fiberglass, which has been used to insulate new homes for decades, is one of the most commonly installed types of insulation and works well in multiple areas of a home.
  • Blown-in fiberglass: Blown-in fiberglass is another form of fiberglass insulation. This material helps fill in small cracks and gaps in attics and walls.
  • Cellulose: Cellulose is environmentally friendly—it consists of up to 85% recycled material and takes less energy to make than other insulation materials.

Broken Drum Insulation of Visalia has worked with many local builders and contractors to make sure new homes being built are as energy-efficient and comfortable as possible with the right crawl space, wall and attic insulation. Our team can help yours finish your project on time and on budget.

What is R-Value & Why Is It Important?

R-value is a measurement of a material’s resistance to the flow of heat. Insulation with a higher R-value will offer greater resistance to heat flow from one area to another. By increasing the total R-value of the insulation in your Visalia or Fresno home, you can prevent heat from escaping to the outside during the winter, or keep the interior from absorbing the heat from the attic and roof during the summer. This leads to higher energy efficiency and lower heating and cooling costs.

Typical R-values and material costs for our insulation at Broken Drum Insulation of Visalia include:

  • Blown-in fiberglass – R-2.2 to 4.3 per inch, with costs of about $1.59 for an R-38 to R-49 rating.
  • Blown-in cellulose – R-3.2 to 3.9 per inch, with costs of about $1.59 for an R-38 to R-49 rating.
  • Fiberglass batts – R-3.1 to 3.4 per inch, with costs of $0.65 to 1.20 per square foot at an R-4 rating.
  • Rockwool – R-3.1 per inch, with costs of $0.57 to $0.85 per square foot at an R-4 rating.
  • Open-cell spray foam – R-3.5 per inch, with costs of $0.45 to $.65 per board foot.
  • Closed-cell spray foam – R-6.0 to 6.5 per inch, with costs of $1.00 to 1.50 per board foot.
  • Expanded polystyrene rigid foam – R-3.6 to 4.2 per inch, with a cost of $0.31 per square foot for each inch of thickness.
  • Extruded polystyrene rigid foam – R-5.0 per inch, with a cost of $0.47 per square foot for each inch of thickness

While traditional materials like fiberglass and cellulose are a great value, spray foam offers impressive performance for its price, providing both air sealing and insulation in a single application. In addition to material costs, there will be labor costs and other fees depending on the size and scope of the job.

Common Questions About Our Insulation Services

As a leading insulation contractor in the Visalia area, our team at Broken Drum Insulation of Visalia receives plenty of questions about our insulation services from current and potential customers. Here are answers to our most common insulation questions:

How much insulation do I need?

In the Fresno and Visalia areas, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends R-30 to R-60 in the attic, R-19 to R-25 in the floors and up to R-21 in the walls. At Broken Drum Insulation of Visalia, we can help you choose the proper amounts of insulation and the best products for your needs and budget.

What is the best insulation for existing homes?

Blown-in cellulose and fiberglass are the easiest to install in finished walls, floors and ceilings. A small hole is drilled into each framing cavity, and the insulation is blown-in or injected, requiring minimal remodeling and repairs. With a bit more remodeling, spray foam is also an excellent choice.

What is the best insulation for new homes?

For the ultimate in insulation and air sealing performance, we recommend closed-cell spray foam, though fiberglass or rockwool batts are also great options.
