Why Choose Cellulose Insulation For New Home Construction?

Since it’s not on the top 10 list of life stressors, it’s got to be #11. Building a house is one of the most stressful things anybody ever does, with one decision after another from picking out faucets to selecting flooring. So who can wonder if people forget to think about insulation?

But the fact is, the type of insulation you use is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make, affecting your comfort and your wallet for as long as you’ll live in your home. And let’s face it, it’ll be a lot easier to change out your faucets than to reinsulate your home a few years from now (something you sure don’t want to do). So insulation is something you want to get right the first time, which is why you’ll want to use Greenfiber.
