Residential & Commercial Insulation Services
Professional Insulation Installation in Michigan
Insulation is integral to maintaining a space that effectively retains heat during frigid midwest winters. Similarly, in the summer, insulation provides a barrier to keep cool AC indoors, and the muggy, unwanted heat out of the house. Legacy Roofing offers insulation services for both commercial and residential properties in Michigan, leading to significantly lower electric bills and less noise transfer between levels.

Residential Insulation Contractors
Legacy can help install insulation in residential homes in a variety of areas, including:
- Attics: Heat can easily escape through the roof of a home, leading to unnecessarily expensive electricity bills and energy waste. New insulation can be one of the most effective ways to retain heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer.
- Basements: Without proper insulation, a basement can become very chilly and unbearable to spend time in. New insulation increases temperature retention. Basements also tend to be more damp, and insulation works as a moisture barrier to minimize damaging mildew and mold growth.
- Walls: If you’re able to clearly make out a conversation from the room next to yours, you probably need new insulation. Sound reduction is a huge benefit of installing new insulation.
- Floors: While insulation limits heat transfer between levels, when placed between floor boards it also limits noise; no one wants to hear every step in the house, and insulation can help provide a more tranquil environment.
New Build Insulation
Legacy can help to install insulation in newly built homes, ensuring they are starting off properly sealed, maintaining energy efficiency and keeping heating costs low.
Is your property undergoing renovation? If you are noticing a draft or an abundance of icicles along your roof, it is most likely in need of replacement insulation. Legacy can help install insulation in older homes, preventing loss of heat and leading to a more evenly heated space.
Commercial Insulation Contractors
Legacy installs insulation in both residential and commercial properties. Save money on energy bills with proper insulation in your commercial building, and provide your church, school, or multi-unit property with a greater sense of peace by reducing nearby and surrounding noise.
Owens Corning Fiberglass Insulation
What Is Fiberglass Insulation?
Fiberglass insulation offers thermal protection in the form of a thick sheet (known as a batt or blanket) or loose-fill insulation (intended for hard to reach, abnormally shaped areas). Air is trapped in the material, slowing the transference of heat. This is a common form of insulation, as it is affordable and relatively easy to install.
What Is Fiberglass Made of?
Fiberglass insulation is made of plastic and reinforced with fine glass fibers that are woven together to create a thick sheet or loose-fill product. Typically, about 20-30% is composed of recycled materials.
Is Fiberglass Insulation Safe?
When properly installed behind a wall, yes, fiberglass insulation is safe. While there are no studies commenting on carcinogenic effects (of which the pre-fiberglass option asbestos has many), it should not be installed without proper personal protection equipment (PPE). PPE, including eye protection, a mask to prevent possible inhalation, and gloves, due to the incredibly small fragments of skin-irritating glass are strongly advised.
What Is Owens Corning?
The insulation offered by Owens Corning is an updated version of the classic; able to be cleanly cut to fit and stay put when placed, their highly-recycled, ultra-soft Next Gen Fiberglass is able to be touched with bare hands and installed more quickly, keeping your project on schedule while keeping your building or home energy efficient. Also available are the low flame spread with vapor retarder for areas of exposed insulation and sound attenuation batts for maximum noise reduction. Owens Corning is UL classified.

Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation
What Is Cellulose Insulation?
Cellulose insulation is a sprayable form of insulation, allowing every nook and cranny of your attic, floor, or wall to be thoroughly covered, maximizing thermal retention and sound reduction. It is incredibly energy efficient, as it eliminates the possibility of air penetration, keeping heat or cool air where you want it: inside.
What Is Cellulose Insulation Made of?
Cellulose insulation is made of recycled newspaper, making this a great option for anyone seeking to utilize repurposed, sustainable building materials.
Is Cellulose Insulation Safe?
Yes. Cellulose is a non-allergenic, paper-based insulation material. It is mold-resistant and offers added safety in the event of a house or building fire.
What Is Owens Nu-Wool?
Nu-wool is a form of cellulose insulation that has been available since 1949. 86% of nu-wool insulation is made of recycled newspaper, processing over 150 tons of reused paper (2,550 trees worth) every day. Nu-wool is UL classified.

Cellulose vs. Fiberglass Insulation
Benefits of Cellulose Insulation
When it comes to having peace of mind for your family or commercial building space, cellulose insulation provides that assurance. Class A fire rated, Nu-wool is life-time treated for fire-resistance, both preventing and slowing the spread of destructive, dangerous flames by obstructing the intake of oxygen.
Cellulose insulation is also good for customers that are eco friendly, as cellulose often contains high amounts of post-consumer paper products. This reduces the amount of pollution in landfills, allowing cellulose insulation to become a practical and beneficial way to repurpose old newspapers.
Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation
The benefits of fiberglass insulation are its ease of installation in ceilings, walls, and floors, budget-friendly price point, durability, and dust particle minimization. When it comes to sustainability, Owens Corning has the highest amount of recycled content of other top fiberglass insulation suppliers.
