Understanding the insulation materials and the purposes for each type of insulation will make your installation or retrofit an easier process.

Batt insulation is a form of fiberglass, available in various widths. It can be installed in open walls, ceilings and floor cavities.
Fiberglass batts provide consistent quality and low dust. They are also easy to cut and fit to make for quicker installation in residential and commercial buildings’ wood and metal frame cavities. We install unfaced, Kraft and FSK batts for thermal and acoustical treatments to walls, ceilings and floors.
Also called masonry foam, injection foam acts as both an insulating product and an air barrier. It has a consistency similar to shaving cream when it’s applied and hardens as it dries. The purpose of injection foam is to seal wall cavities and other enclosed spaces against air movement and heat transfer.
Injection foam isn’t prone to compressing, sagging or settling into the wall cavity over time. This makes it a long-lasting solution that continues to perform flawlessly after many years in use. Injection foam is most often used in new commercial buildings, including retail stores, churches and schools. It may also be suitable for some residential applications that feature concrete-block walls and foundations.
When applied to existing walls, a small section of siding is removed, if necessary, and small holes are drilled through the exterior. The foam is then injected, where it spreads from the origin point to fill in nooks and crannies in the wall cavity. When the installation is complete, the hole is patched to resemble the surrounding wall area.
Fiberglass and cellulose insulation are commonly used in the residential and commercial construction industry.
The Edwards/Mooney & Moses team offers loose-fill fiberglass insulation products we believe are among the best in the industry from:
We install Advanced Fiber Technology (AFT) cellulose insulation, manufactured with a minimum of 85% recycled post-consumer newsprint. The manufacturing process releases virtually no harmful gases or pollutants into the environment. Cellulose itself contains no harmful materials such as formaldehyde or fiberglass.
Advanced Fiber Technology is a leading cellulose insulation manufacturer and has been in business for more than 35 years. Their expanded system includes the latest manufacturing techniques we have found to be successful, like microprocessors checking multiple times per second to help create an effective, high-quality product.
Cellulose insulation is sprayed or blown into walls, conforms to your home and surrounds your family with a seamless insulation system. Wet spray, or spray-applied, cellulose is used for new construction wall insulation projects. This type of insulation creates an effective seal of the insulated cavity for protection against air infiltration. It can be installed in new homes, residential multi-family or apartment buildings, and commercial buildings.
The Edwards/Mooney & Moses team offers the cellulose wall spray insulation brand we believe is among the best in the industry: AFT.
We also install K-13 spray cellulose insulation, which can be tailored to your specific project requirements for insulation (R-value), noise reduction (NRC), color, durability, condensation control, texture and aesthetics.
Spray foam insulation is applied wet and expands into a thick foam. It can be installed in small cracks and crevices as well as hard-to-reach areas.
Spray foam is also one of the most effective types of insulation for helping reduce air infiltration.
The Edwards/Mooney & Moses team offers the spray foam insulation brand we believe is among the best in the industry:
