Denim insulation is a product that is quickly becoming very popular. Not only is it becoming a common thing to see on a home inspection, it is also becoming a selling point. You can now find listings for properties that advertising having recycled denim insulation. But why is it so popular? Why should you consider denim insulation for your own home? Here are a few reasons:
- It is usually about 85% recycled materials, so it is good for the environment.
- It is great for sound proofing. In fact, its acoustical rating is about 30% higher than other products.
- It isn’t itchy. AN for a home inspector that crawls through insulation all day, that is worth its weight in gold.
But there is a down side… the cost. It is nearly twice as expensive as other insulation.
