Hiring Reliable Insulation Professionals In Christchurch

Wind, snow, frost and sunshine all help contribute to the temperature inside our homes, with plenty of us experiencing the extremes of being too hot or too cold. Having insulation professionally installed helps to keep the temperature inside more constant, making your Christchurch home warmer, drier and healthier to live in.

Choosing An Insulation Professional In Canterbury

How hard can it be to install insulation yourself? Many DIYers attempt to install insulation rather than hire professionals. What they often fail to realise is that there is a national standard which all insulation fitting needs to meet and often end up putting both their property and their families at risk.

The standard NZS 4246:2006 Installing Insulation in Residential Buildings (NZS 4246:2006 Installing Insulation in Residential Buildings) requires all new and retro fitted insulation to meet these national guidelines by using the right materials for the job and to fit the insulation correctly. Hiring a local insulation professional from within the Christchurch area means that you can be confident that your insulation will meet the required code standards, keeping your family and property safe and warm.

A local batts fitter will also have knowledge about which insulation products are best for use within the Canterbury region and have local contacts where they can purchase insulation at a lower price. Listing your installing insulation job on Builderscrack will give you access to multiple tradies who install insulation and plenty of quotes to choose from.

Types Of Home Insulation Available In Christchurch

There are five main types of insulation available in New Zealand; glass fibre, reflective foil, polyester and wool, expanded polystyrene and loose fill insulation. With the extremes in temperatures we face in our region, the right choice of insulation is vital.

  • Glass Fibre – one of the most common insulation types used, made from recycled glass and suitable for walls, ceilings and underfloor. It can cause skin and throat irritations so professional insulation is recommended.
  • Reflective Foil – does not meet the current building code for new builds, so is really only suitable for underfloor insulation in existing homes. Can be dangerous if not fitted correctly, so the use of a professional insulation installer is recommended.
  • Polyester and Wool –wool is the preferred option by those wanting a more eco type insulation. New to the market and is suitable for use in ceilings, walls and underfloor.
  • Expanded Polystyrene - made in specially manufactured flexible yet rigid sheets, expanded polystyrene can be used to insulate floors, ceilings and walls.
  • Loose Fill Insulation – needs professional insulation installation because it is a loose fill which needs to be sprayed using special machinery. Does get very dusty, so not suitable for use in roof spaces which are used for storage.  Suitable only for ceiling spaces.

If you are unsure about the best choice of insulation for your home, chat with one of your local professional insulation installers which can be found right here at Builderscrack!
