This set of before and after photos shows the difference between light, fluffy fiberglass insulation and new TruSoft cellulose insulation in an attic. Here are the differences you may not know:
1. Fiberglass is more susceptible to something called "wind washing". In a vented attic assembly wind can blow around in the attic and it can easily pass through the fiberglass. TruSoft cellulose packs tighter and it's harder for wind to travel through it.
2. Rodents and insects LOVE fiberglass. They nest in it and make it home.....right above your head. TruSoft cellulose is chemically washed with a liquid borate which deters rodents and insects by irritating their respiratory system.
3. TruSoft cellulose has a higher R value per inch than fiberglass.
4. TruSoft cellulose is also less succeptible to flame spread than fiberglass as well.....
