Insulating your Custom Home

temp-post-image

Insulation is an item often overlooked when building your custom home. Cutting costs to stay within budget is a concern that many custom home buyers face. At Masters Touch Custom Homes we do not cut corners and insulation is an area where we recommend you spend more to save more. Protecting your home from energy loss and reducing your homes energy dependency is high on our priority list.

Common pink insulation is found in many custom homes despite it’s ability to mold. Fibrous materials such as pink fiberglass insulation, cellulose or recycled paper filling do not provide a moisture barrier or vapor barrier for your home. Mold from moisture in the walls of your home can spread very quickly on the fiberglass or paper insulations. Mold within the walls is a silent and deadly problem in many homes today.

What makes foam insulation better? It provides a moisture and vapor barrier that create a better insulation from weather and moisture changes as well as providing protection against mold and moisture. Foam insulation is made of billions of tiny, plastic wrapped air bubbles that aren’t subject to air flow or moisture drive. The installation process is costly compared to the pink insulation but the upfront costs save in moisture problems and energy bills in the future.

At Masters Touch Custom Homes our insulation standards are just one reason we stand out among our competition. Since we are a design-build company we try to utilize shade as much as possible in our design process. Our award-winning architectural designs use passive lighting to create natural, well-lit homes while avoiding the direct and harsh Texas sunlight. This further lessens energy costs.
