Your Source for Residential Insulation in St. Louis, MO

Gonz Insulation has years of experience with residential insulation in Saint Louis and surrounding areas. We offer the highest-quality materials possible and provide a quality installation that you can trust. Our team also works diligently to get each project completed in a timely manner.

Insulation quality is measured by R-value. This simply refers to a material’s ability to resist heat flow; the higher the R-value the better the material’s thermal performance. All of our materials have excellent R-value and are built to withstand the tests of time. Specifically, we offer spray foam insulation, an innovative material option that provides an incredibly high R-value grade. In fact, closed-cell spray foam has an R-value of higher than 6.0 per inch, whereas more traditional material options such as fiberglass and cellulose offer an R-value of around 3.5 to 4.0 per inch.

  • Residential Insulation for Attics:  Home attics require quality insulation. Otherwise, your property could experience more profound temperature fluctuations, pests could make a home out of your attic space, and there is a greater risk of water and moisture damage in your attic as well as to your roof and home foundation. We provide residential insulation for both vented and unvented attics.

  • Residential Insulation for Crawl Spaces:  We also offer residential insulation services for crawl spaces. This provides similar benefits as attic insulation and is equally as important for energy reduction for your home, pest prevention, and the prevention of water damage.

  • Residential Insulation for Other Structures: Our services also include insulation for pole barns and metal building structures. From detached garages to barns used for housing animals, we can provide the insulation for all of the other structures you own.

About Our Residential Insulation Material Options

Our material options for residential insulation include open-cell spray foam, closed-cell spray foam, fiberglass, and cellulose. Each option offers unique advantages. Ultimately, the best choice for you largely depends on your budget and personal preference. Keep in mind, most existing properties that have insulation more than 15 years old have fiberglass or cellulose insulation. We can replace the existing material type with the same type or upgrade your material to spray foam. Below is a more in-depth explanation of each material we offer.

  • Open-Cell Spray Foam: This form of spray foam expands more and requires less material to fill the same amount of space (compared to closed-cell). Open-cell spray foam is a more affordable option for spray foam material. It still offers many of the same benefits as closed-cell spray foam, and its ability to absorb sound is even better. Open-cell spray foam can last for far beyond 50 years and closer to 100 years in many cases.

  • Closed-Cell Spray Foam: Closed-cell spray foam is denser and heavier than open-cell spray foam. This material provides one of the most resistant air seals you can achieve with R-values between 6 and 7 per inch. It can also last for more than 75 years in most cases with minimal maintenance required. Additionally, due to its high R-value, our residential insulation clients often see notable reductions in their monthly energy costs, which largely make up for the higher insulation costs over time.

  • Fiberglass Insulation: We typically recommend spray foam insulation due to its unmatched quality and longevity. However, fiberglass insulation is also a reliable option for homeowners who desire to save money during installation. Fiberglass is made of glass particles that are turned into fibers. It offers an R-value of around 3.5 per inch (although R-values can vary), and it can last for 15-20 years on average.

  • Cellulose Insulation: Cellulose insulation is typically made using recycled paper products, making it a more eco-friendly solution. It offers a similar R-value as fiberglass and similar longevity. This may be an ideal option as well if spray foam insulation material is not an ideal solution for the homeowner.
