Fiberglass Insulation

A very common type of insulation to install in a home is fiberglass insulation. It comes in large roles that resemble a look of cotton candy. Fiberglass insulation has been around for some time and it does a fantastic job of insulating any home. First of all it’s good to have an understanding of what fiberglass is. Fiberglass is created by blasting very hot molten glass through tiny heated holes at a high speed which results in a stream that draws fibers that become stringy so it resembles cotton candy.

Fiberglass insulation can be installed a few ways but it really is like putting jigsaw pieces in to their rightful place. Its rolled out and installed by placing it snuggly between cavities. Fiberglass installation takes a slightly more in depth approach to fitting as opposed to blowing the cellulose in to the cavity. But with a good qualified person who is a perfectionist at cutting the fiberglass you will be in good hands in making sure it fits.

Fiberglass in general is something that will last a very long time once it’s installed. Being that it’s made from glass it is very hard for it to catch fire so in an emergency you should be good. But if the fire does get to a point where it causes the fiberglass to catch fire it will burn fast and will emit a toxic gas. We make sure to install all of the fiberglass insulation under extreme safety conditions. Fiberglass is useful but also very annoying as it’s itchy and the small fibers can cut your skin and irritate your nose and mouth if you are not wearing a protective facemask when installing it. As long as you are protected when installing fiberglass you will have no issues at all, every one of our team members wear full protective gear when installing fiberglass insulation.

Fiberglass insulation is perfect to use in any home or businesses and it’s installed in attic spaces and in-between cavity spaces. This is one of the most common insulation types and many homeowners opt to have this installed. For its price and for its insulation benefits it can’t be beaten.

You can find the R-value for each area of the home by going online to their website and checking what thickness you need in your region. If you have our company come out to inspect your home and provide you with a quote, we will do all of this for you.


We bought our home in June and had a full house survey done on the property. One of the things that came up was that the attic insulation was insufficient so we had to put it on our to do list. In September we used UAC insulation Contractors to insulate our attic and they did a nice job. I was considering doing it myself but I took a look at the mess up there and thought better of it. The team came around and stripped out all of the old insulation and did a full attic clean, they made sure it was all bagged up and took it away for disposal. They installed a fiberglass insulation as that is what I wanted and I now I have a clean insulated attic which will be perfect for the winter. Thank you guys for doing a job I did not really want to do.

As my home was always hot or cold I needed to address the matter as it was costing me a small fortune in energy bills. I called UAC Insulation Contractors to do some further inspection and see if they could figure out why. Using some fancy equipment they managed to pinpoint the areas in my home where I was having heat and cold air escape. That’s why my home was always like an oven in the summer even with the AC on and an ice box in winter with the heat sill blasting. They got to work in adding extra insulation all over my home including crawl spaces under the home and in the walls. Now it’s like night and day, the heat stays in the home as does the AC so I am not spending a small fortune to feel comfortable. It’s well worth having your home inspected as you will be surprised as to how inefficient your home was running before these guys step in to change all of that.

I was after a good alternative to fiberglass insulation and I heard Cellulose insulation was the way to go. I had UAC Insulation Contractors come out and give me a price quote and they did a fantastic job of walking me through the benefits of Cellulose and verifying why I wanted it installed in the first place. I used the company to carry out the work and they used a loose fill insulation to pump in to the wall. They did a fantastic job and I was very happy with the end result of how the insulation installation which is a mouthful to say, went.

My basement was always miserable to go down to as it was freezing in the winter and having the washer and dryer located down there meant it was never a pleasure to venture to. I had UAC Insulation Contractors come around and look at installing some insulation to warm it up and then I wanted it sealed in with drywall to make it a proper room. The insulation team came around and suggested a good insulation and showed me the product. They told me it would instantly give me more warm and save me money on heating as less heat would escape. After having the work done 5 months ago I can safely say they were right. The room and home feels warmer in general and it’s now a place I don’t mind going down to when doing the washing.
