Fiberglass Attic Insulation
In thermal projects, fiberglass attic insulation is one of the most used materials. It is made up of limestone, sodium carbonate, and silica sand. Thousands of filaments are produced when these materials are heated to 1,500 degrees Celsius; once they are entangled, they combine to make fiberglass (which is also known as glass wool due to the small glass fibers which it consists of).
Due to its high thermal resistance and poor conductivity, heat does not easily penetrate the fiberglass insulation. It thus has becomes an ideal thermal insulator.
Over time, fiberglass materials can break down. If you currently have fiberglass insulation installed but have just moved in and are not sure how old the insulation is, call us for an insulation inspection by one of our fiberglass attic insulation contractors in Nanaimo, BC. We do inspections all over Vancouver Island.

Fiberglass insulation is constructed of resin, it is a substance that does not decay or disintegrate. As a result, it is quite helpful for strengthening other construction-related buildings and is relatively lightweight, making it simple to install and move.
Since it doesn’t conduct electricity, it may also be used as an electrical insulator in systems that call for one. It also requires very little care, especially when used outside.
It is a substance that respects the environment in both its production and usage as an insulator since it is non-toxic. It doesn’t produce fumes or dangerous gases, and it is not combustible. This enables it to stop the spread of fire, especially when the flames are coming from the outside.
