When properly installed, insulation increases your homes energy efficiency and lowers your electric bill, reduces noise pollution, keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. With the many benefits of insulation, it is surprising that many homes are under insulated in the United States. Most homes that are over 10 years old, likely need more insulation in the attic. Construction standards change over the years causing insulation requirements to grow, leaving older homes under insulated.
Our insulation experts will provide an estimate based off your current insulation type and quantity. Once an estimate is approved, Boak & Sons insulation trucks will be sent to the job site to begin foam, fiberglass or cellulose installation. Once complete, your home will be able to better withstand the cold winters and warm summers.
The higher the R- Value of your home, the better the resistance to heat. At Boak & Sons we insulate homes higher than the minimum local government standard. Government building codes change over time and usually increase the minimum standard which makes the minimum quantity less efficient. At Boak & Sons, we know that often times with insulation, you only have one opportunity to get the job done right. By installing insulation at a higher R-value, we ensure all Boak & Sons insulated homes are held at a higher standard than our competitors.

Insulation we Specialize in
Fiberglass insulation can be installed in multiple areas of your home including the attic, crawl space, and open walls. Fiberglass can come as batts or as loose fill that can be blown into attics and tight spaces.
Core Foam is combined with compressed air using specialized foaming equipment to fill hard to reach spaces like wall fillings. This type of insulation will keep you home well-insulated, quiet and energy efficient.
Spray Polyurethane Foam
Spray polyurethane foam, commonly referred to as SPF is a spray-applied insulating foam plastic that is installed as a liquid and then expands many times its original size. Boak & Sons is accredited by the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) for their work with this spray foam.
