The 3 Best Insulation Options for New Homes

There’s nothing like walking into your brand new home. Truly, most homeowners who buy new homes say that they find a lot of comfort in knowing that their home was built with quality and the latest advances in home improvement. At RAM Residential Remodeling, we love seeing our clients happy and with a new found sense of comfort. Not just comfort in the newness of things, but also comfort in the quality of work that was put into their new home. Among those things, homeowners should find comfort knowing they have quality insulation all throughout their new home and attic. That’s why at RAM Residential Remodeling, we are giving away 3 of the best insulation options for new homes in our area today.


While this is still considered the oldest form of modern home insulation, the latest technological upgrades have improved tremendously. Cellulose can be loosely filled or blown-in for new homes. It is made mostly of recycled paper and denim and is heavily treated to give you lasting insulation. It is also a flame retardant and has been known to help reduce issues with pets.

Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass is a pretty common type of insulation material that is found in many homes around the area. It can be made to look like a blanket that covers insulation areas or it can be loosely filled in around the area. Its main purpose, as with any insulation, is to slow the spread of temperature and sound. Whether you are trying to keep your home cool in the summer or warm in the winter, fiberglass can help. Fiberglass insulation is affordable and utilized in many new homes.

Spray Foam Insulation

Last but certainly not least, spray foam insulation has taken off in popularity over the last few years. The fact that it is sprayed into locations that require proper insulation gives it a tighter, more complete insulation, even in all the little crevices that other insulation material cannot reach.  Additionally, spray foam insulation gives homeowners an incredible discount when it comes to energy savings. Some homes in the area say that their energy costs have gone down anywhere from 30-50%.
