WeathershieldTM has an R-value of 3.8 per inch, a very affordable price per sq. ft., easy and versatile applications, plus superior thermal, acoustical and fire properties. Cellulose insulation is also three times denser than loose-fill fiberglass, so less product is required to obtain the same R-value.

No matter how big or small a job, cellulose is a great choice. It maintains a stable R-value in fluctuating Canadian temperatures and can tighten up a home 38% better than traditional fiberglass batts.
It is often assumed that cellulose insulation is just for attics, this is a common misconception as it can be applied virtually anywhere (floors, walls, ceilings, garage, basements, cathedral ceilings, etc.) either as dry-spray applied, damp-spray or stabilized. In walls and floor assemblies, it can applied to obtain STC ratings of 65 plus. The Enviroshield wall system is installed at 3.0 lbs per cu. ft., delivering excellent thermal and sound attenuation. Another product feature is its enhanced fire resistance, a safety feature that is equivalent to that of rockwool and superior to glass fiber.
