New Home Insulation

Residential New Construction Insulation Services in Minneapolis & St. Paul, Minnesota

Do you need to insulate a new home being built in the Twin Cities area? Call the team at Metro Home Insulation and Waterproofing! Many local builders and contractors have come to rely on us.

We help increase the energy efficiency, comfort and value of new homes throughout the Minneapolis and Saint Paul areas. We install:

  • Spray foam: Typically made of polyurethane, spray foam is applied wet and expands into thick foam. Spray foam insulation can be installed in crevices and hard-to-reach areas and can help reduce air infiltration.
  • Fiberglass (batts and blown-in): Fiberglass, which has been used to insulate homes for decades, is available as loose-fill/blown-in or batts. Fiberglass is made of tiny glass fibers and is often installed in attics but can be used to insulate walls and crawl spaces as well.
  • Cellulose: Cellulose is environmentally friendly—it consists of up to 85 percent recycled material and takes less energy to make than other insulation materials—and can be installed in any area of a home.
  • Rigid foam: Rigid board, or rigid foam, insulation can be made of polystyrene, polyisocyanurate or polyurethane and is typically installed in new houses.

Our team has experience insulating walls, attics, basements, crawl spaces and even porches in new homes. Our waterproofing contractors can also install drain tile and foundation solutions to help prevent moisture damage and other problems.

Foundation Insulation

Foundation insulation is typically installed during new construction. The following areas should be insulated:

  • Foundation walls above ground
  • Foundation walls in heated basements
  • Slab floors built directly on the ground
  • Foundation walls of unvented crawl spaces (as an alternative to floor insulation)

A properly insulated home foundation helps reduce energy costs, keep below-grade rooms (like basements) more comfortable and prevent moisture problems insect infestation. In new construction projects, concrete forms and blocks are often insulated—this provides both foundation structure and insulation. Many builders also insulate foundation wall exteriors before backfilling. The ideal type of foundation insulation varies by climate.

In most areas across the country, insulating the exterior edge of a slab can reduce heating bills by up to 20 percent. During home construction process, insulation—usually rigid foam—is installed either directly against the exterior of the slab and footing before backfilling or under the slab and along the inside of the stem wall of the foundation.
