Nope – no babies here. We are talking BIB’s as in insulation aka “blown in batts”. I mentioned in my post yesterday that the insulation installers were at our home on the 4th of July to install the insulation. We had upgraded from standard batts of insulation to BIB’s for our new home. This increases the R factor by some number known to my husband and we decided to spend a little more here and enjoy the savings in the years ahead. Some of you may ask why we did not choose the “spray” insulation as it also has a very high R factor. The reason for this is, IF/WHEN you have water intrusion in your home you may not have the early warning signs that would allow you to mitigate the problem quickly and efficiently AND tracing the origination of the intrusion is made very difficult with the “spray” insulation. I consider my husband the resident expert of “why” things fail and how to quickly acknowledge, track down and correct these failures I 100% back his decision. (I am charge of color and other fun stuff!) After the storms in the Luling area the last few days I am happy to know IF/WHEN we have an issue it will be easier to track down and correct.
So here are some quick photos of the insulation installation…….
A special thank you to our neighbor Lilly for inspecting the insulation on Saturday to be sure we had not had water intrusion where the roof is not quite done being shingled. She saved Corey 6 hours in the car on a Holiday Weekend Sunday!
