I was wondering what different kinds of insulation are available for a home. I live in a cold northern climate where it is also damp. Which one has the greatest R value? Your help would be appreciated.
Although there are many types and brands of insulations, rigid insulation will give you the best r-value per inch/mm. However, for flexibility a batt insulation is your way to go. I also feel that staying away from a fibreglass insulation is not a bad move either. Roxul™ uses fibre strands of rock which provide similar r-value, with no itch, something you’ll appreciate later on. Just a few points…….
