We offer this solution as an alternative to our other insulations solutions. If you have any questions about this product or would like a free estimate please give us a call.

Blow-in Cellulose is a recycled paper product that has been developed for maximum coverage & R-Value. It is been produced with fire retardants and is non-allergenic making it an ideal home insulation. Blowing cellulose gives complete coverage leaving no gaps or areas un-insulated. Satisfaction Guaranteed!

R-Value Savings are obtained by increasing the insulation in a building, therefore lowering your heating costs and furnace wear & tear. Simply put, keeping money in your pocket. Are you unsure of your current insulation R-Value? Contact Pella Roofing & Insulation for a Free attic inspection.

  1. What does R-Value mean, and what are the standards these days?
    R-Value is the ratio of heat transfer through a material. Higher the R-Value means better insulating quotient it has. For an example some building codes list R-40 for attics and R-20 for walls. If a home has an R-Value of 15, cellulose can be blown in on top of the existing insulation to create the desired R-40 level.

  2. Is cellulose more expensive than regular pink insulation?
    Cellulose is not more expensive than pink insulation and when installed in attics it provides a better insulation factor since there are no gaps for air to penetrate.

  3. Is cellulose harmful to my health or the environment?
    Cellulose is a recycled paper product which has been treated with a fire retardant and is non-allergenic. It is environmentally friendly as it reuses materials which otherwise would be added to the land fill sites.

  4. Is there an optimum season for installing cellulose?
    Cellulose can be installed at anytime during the year but is better done in the spring or fall. The temperature in the attic at those times is easier to work in and makes the job much more efficient. Insulation is blown through a hose which has to be run through a window or door, so to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home it is advisable to do this work when the temperature outside is neither too hot nor too cold.

  5. Will installing cellulose make my house too hot in the summer?
    Installing cellulose will decrease the heating costs in your home and help to maintain a warmer temperature in the winter and cooler temperature in the summer.

  6. Will the installation process create a mess of my home or business?
    Exteriors Unlimited takes pride in doing a job as cleanly and efficiently as possible. There is dust created from blowing the insulation but that is kept to a minimum by feeding the machine out-doors away from the house. The hose which feeds the insulation is run through the closest window or door to the attic entrance and drop clothes are placed on the floor to catch any dust from the process. The area outside used for the blower is cleaned of all residue and waste prior to leaving the job site.
