Which Insulation Is Best for Stud Walls?

Upgrading or replacing the insulation in your home is a great way to make your home more energy-efficient, achieve a quieter indoor space and maintain your indoor comfort year-round.

If you’re replacing or upgrading the insulation in your stud walls, it’s important to work with an experienced and trusted insulation specialist to help you make the best decision for your project.

In this blog, the expert insulation contractors at Alpine Insulation discuss the best insulation options for stud walls and what to do when re-insulating existing stud walls or putting up new stud walls in your home.

Which Insulation Is Best for Stud Walls?

Stud walls typically have a different thickness than exterior or load-bearing walls, and the cavities inside stud walls can be difficult to insulate effectively. If you want to add, replace or install insulation in your stud walls, it can be difficult to choose the best insulation for your needs and budget.

For new and existing stud walls, we recommend these types of insulation:

  • Spray foam: Spray foam is applied as a liquid and then expands. It offers superior, full coverage by blowing insulation into open stud cavities with specialized equipment through holes drilled on the exterior of the home or pouring material in through upper access points.
  • Rigid board: Any kind of board insulation makes insulating stud walls easy because they can be cut to the precise size. Rigid foam board insulation offers excellent soundproofing, too.
  • Fiberglass roll: Great for new stud walls, as long as you use the right amount for the size of the wall. Not sure what R-value or thickness is best for your stud wall? Call us for advice, and we can help you install it.

It’s important to consult with an experienced insulation specialist to help you determine which type of insulation and how much insulation will best work for your home and budget. Alpine Insulation can help.
