High-Performance Blown-in Attic Insulation for Homes in Minneapolis

Specialized equipment blowing fragments of insulation into an attic.

Is your HVAC system struggling to maintain comfortable temperatures in your home during the frigid winters and scorching summers? Have you noticed that your energy costs are increasing? These problems can often be traced back to inadequate attic insulation. At Snap Construction, we can provide the answers you’re looking for by providing a free attic insulation assessment and consultation. We can dramatically improve your home’s thermal performance by installing premium blown-in attic insulation.

What are the Benefits of Blown-in Attic Insulation?

Snap Construction uses specialized machines to install blown-in attic insulation made of cellulose or small fragments of loose-fill fiberglass. The installation process ensures even coverage without leaving any gaps, defending your home against air leakage and heat transfer. This is especially useful in older homes, which often do not have adequate insulation.

Beyond significantly increasing energy efficiency and making it less costly to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures, blown-in attic insulation provides other benefits. Insulation can improve soundproofing and reduce condensation that would otherwise result in mold and mildew growth. And by reducing attic temperatures, insulation can also stop destructive ice dams from forming on the eaves of your home.

Types of Blown-in Attic Insulation

There are two common blown-in insulation types: fiberglass and cellulose. Pricing varies between insulation contractors and generally follows supply and demand. As experienced insulation installers, the Snap Construction team can help you choose the best insulation for your home and budget.

Fiberglass Blown-in Insulation

Fiberglass is the most common type of blown-in insulation. Fiberglass insulation is made from sand and glass, is low density, and is often found in rolls called batts in addition to loose fill.

Cellulose Blown-in Insulation

Cellulose insulation is made from recycled paper with added minerals for fire resistance. It can only be blown in and does not come in other insulation types. Cellulose insulation is higher density, more environmentally friendly, and easier to manufacture than fiberglass.

Minneapolis’ Attic Insulation Experts

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Snap Construction is the premier energy efficiency contractor in the Midwest and a top 1% rated contractor on Angi according to overall customer satisfaction. We are also energy certified and preferred by CenterPoint and Xcel Energy. And we are one of the few contractors certified by the BPI (Building Performance Institute), meaning we can help you with utility rebates.

What’s more, Snap Construction exceeds code requirements with our blown-in insulation installations. The current state code reads that new homes should have 16.5 inches or an r49 rating. At Snap, you will get charged for r49 and receive 20 inches or r60. We have found that r60 performs much better in our climate, and we expect to see a change in the state code accordingly in the near future. We also include a complete ventilation system with your insulation.

“Very happy with the service! Had garage walls stay foam sprayed and garage ceiling blow in insulated. Price was very good and the service was even better! Highly recommend!”

Chris C.

We are grateful

“We hired Snap to handle our insulation install after having an energy audit that confirmed our 1915 home was woefully under-insulated. Tim was great to work with from the initial walk-through and estimate, to explaining the process, and making sure the project was completed to our satisfaction. Now a year later with natural gas prices on the rise, we are grateful to have our home better insulated to keep our costs down.”

Highly recommend

“John was GREAT! He came over about a week ago and gave us a free estimate, after we got it from we scheduled the insulation job for today. Him and his crew were amazing, in and out in only 2 hours roughly. Highly recommend Snap Construction, we are going to have them back out this summer for some other projects at our home.”

“The guys at Snap Construction are great! Very good communication throughout my home insulating project. They came in and knew exactly what to do. It's hard to find companies that are this good. I would highly recommend Snap Construction for your next home project.”

Troy O.

“Had wall insulation with Snap, Attic planned for shortly. My wife was having a reaction to other housework we've been doing, so Snap took extra precautions to minimize the amount of dust left from their work. I was very impressed with the steps they took, along with the time to complete. Job well done and recommend them to anyone looking for insulation.”
