Ceiling insulation price per square metre
There are 3 main types of products to choose from in South Africa. Polyester, fiberglass and cellulose fiber. Additionally, you will need to make a decision on which product you want installed in your roof.
The roof insulation price per square metre will be different for each product. Cellulose is the cheapest product we have. It’s cheap to make and packed full of chemicals. Fiberglass like aerolite is well priced but itchy to work with. Isotherm thermal insulation is the more expensive of the products but is also the most eco-friendly and people friendly product on the market.
How do the r-values stack up?
All 3 of the products have around the same r-value. Furthermore, you will need to decide if you want to go cheap with cellulose and the chemicals. Or pay more for the non-allergic chemical and fiberglass free products.
How are the products made?
Isotherm is made from recycled plastic bottles that would otherwise go to landfill sites and dumps. Brits have taken these plastic bottles and made a phenomenal green recycled insulation product. Furthermore, this insulation is currently taking the South African market by storm. More homeowners are wanting to get non-allergic insulation installed in their roof. It seems that even the isotherm ceiling insulation price per square metre is higher than fiberglass and cellulose. Homeowners are willing to pay it to have the eco-friendly product installed. Get the isotherm ceiling insulation price per square metre from us to have your home professionally insulated.
Aerolite is made of 80% recycled glass. Aerolite saves more than 100X the energy consumed and CO2 emitted from manufacturing. Transporting and disposing. So you are on the right side of a sustainable future. Additionally, the growing energy crisis and cost has forced a need to conserve energy and reduce electricity usage. Aerolite helps you save by limiting heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. Get the aerolite roof insulation price per square metre from us to have your home professionally insulated.
Cellulose is composed of 75-85% recycled paper fiber, usually post-consumer waste newsprint. The other 15% is a fire retardant such as boric acid or ammonium sulphate. Cellulose has the highest recycled content of any insulation available. For example, fiberglass has a maximum amount of 50% recycled content. Unfortunately you can’t get the cellulose ceiling insulation price per square metre from us because we don’t install this product.
