Insulation Services

Baraibar Drywall is known for its expertise in residential and commercial drywall work. What some may not know, is that we are also an insulation contractor. Similar to the drywall side of our business, our focus is primarily working with residential home builders and commercial construction contractors in new construction. However, we do some individual customer work on the insulation side of our business. Whether you’re a property owner who requires more attic insulation or a contractor looking for a commercial insulation specialist, we can help complete your job on the South Plains of Texas. 

At Baraibar Drywall, we mainly serve property owners, professionals, facility managers, and residential or commercial property supervisors. We serve within an 80-mile radius Denver City, TX. However, we can do work in other parts of the Texas Panhandle or Eastern New Mexico if the spray foam or insulation tasks are bigger in scale. 

Insulation plays an important part in the ongoing cost of maintaining comfort in a home or business. It’s estimated that around 90 percent of single-family houses in the U.S. do not have enough insulation, according to 2015 research by the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association. Not only does poor insulation waste energy and boost energy expenses for these buildings, it likewise disrupts your family’s convenience level by permitting drafts and uses little barrier to your home’s CO2 emissions. 

Various types of insulation exist for different applications, and not all created equal. Here are the 5 major options:  

  • blanket batts and rolls
  • spray foam insulation
  • blown-in insulation
  • foam board or rigid foam panels
  • reflective or radiant barriers 

Keep in mind: As you weigh each of these alternatives to determine which might work best for your home, think about a product’s R-value, which is a measurement of resistance to heat circulation. Customers can usually find the R-value on the item packaging. You can find more information from ENERGY STAR about the measurement.  

Blanket Batts and Rolls 

High-performance (medium-density and high-density) fiberglass blankets and batts have R-values in between R-3.7 and R-4.3 per inch of density.  

This type of insulation is frequently made of fiberglass, rock wool, or recovered cellulose product (like recycled newspapers or cardboard), which comply with nearly any type of location. For blown-in insulation, R-values range from R-2.2 for fiberglass as much as R-3.8 for thick cellulose.  

Spray Foam Insulation 

Spray foam insulation can be used in locations where there are no wall cavities to contain other kinds of insulation on concrete slabs or unfinished walls. When sprayed on the surface, the foam expands to fill bypasses and it seals leaks and gaps inside existing walls and prevents air seepage. It can be utilized in small quantities to fill tight spaces while increasing structural stability and providing sound insulation. Liquid polyurethane, on the other hand, can be sprayed into the cavity of the wall, where it then expands and solidifies into a strong foam. 

The foam can shrink while curing if not used at the right temperature level. Many spray foam products require protection from sunshine and solvents and most can launch harmful fumes if they burn. The R-Value (insulation effectiveness) of some types of spray foam insulation products can lessen over time. 

Our spray foam insulation helps keep hot or air-conditioned homes or industrial buildings from dripping out through walls, roofs, and floors. Spaces and leaks within your house or commercial structure are the main causes of costly cooling and heating costs. Spray foam insulation helps to fill those holes, cracks, and areas, so that your house or business structure stays well insulated during the summer season and cold weather. 

Spray foam is available in two constructions: open-cell foam or denser closed-cell foam. Closed cell foam has the greatest R-value of any insulation, around R-6.2 per inch, but can be costly; open-cell foam insulation values are around R-3.7 per inch of thickness. 

Blow-in Insulation 

Blown fiberglass and blown cellulose are both “fluffy” insulation materials with similar R-values. Blown fiberglass has an R-value between 2.2 and 2.9, where blown cellulose has an R-value between 3.1 and 3.8, making it a better choice from the standpoint of efficiency. The installation technique for blown fiberglass and blown cellulose is similar. A shredding and blowing maker situated outside your home forces the blown insulation through a long, flexible hose that extends into the attic, where a service technician directs the circulation. 

Foam Board or Rigid Foam Panel Insulation 

Unlike batt and blown insulation, stiff foam will not blow or move out of place as soon as it’s set up. It likewise is water and pest resistant, making it ideal for basements and crawl spaces. Stiff foam insulation likewise offers advantages as air barrier, which can be accomplished when the boards are sealed at joints and edges with tape and spray foam.  

Because of its resistance to moisture, foam board insulation is a great choice whenever and wherever there is a chance it could get wet, such as: an exterior foundation, inside a basement against the foundation, and on the outside of a house beneath a house wrap. Foam board insulation is more expensive than traditional batt insulation, so use it only when moisture is a factor and it makes sense with your budget. 

Reflective or Radiant Barriers 

Reflective or radiant barriers work differently than a lot of types of insulation, and so its effectiveness is not determined by R-values. While standard insulation minimizes heat flow in a home, reflective insulation instead reflects the heat away from the home to prevent heat gain and convected heat transfer to cooler surface areas indoors. 

We have experience working in domestic, commercial, and industrial insulation installation. Insulation within these types of structures can include areas of attic or ceiling, basement, crawlspace, garage, and many types of commercial application.
