Turning Waste Paper Into

Cellulose Insulation

Fiberlite recycles tons of waste paper daily, turning it into an amazing array of cellulose insulation products to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of homes and commercial buildings for the people who occupy them. Let us help you insulate to save money on your utility bills and make your home or workplace more quiet and comfortable.




Industry professionals that work on renovations and upgrades of older houses and buildings are often tasked with finding solutions for customers whose insulation may not be providing the comfort and energy savings they expect. In most cases, these clients might, quite literally, be losing money through the roof. Cellulose Insulation is an ideal solution for many retrofit applications.

Fiberlite’s Cellulose Insulation may be installed directly over the top of existing attic insulation. The loose-fill nature of the product fills any voids and gaps that other insulation products leave exposed. For wall applications, the use of the “drill and fill” method of installation eliminates the need for a total wall renovation. While the drill and fill application method is commonly used to insulate walls that may contain no insulation, it can be used to add insulation to walls that already have insufficient or under-performing insulation. The best part is, the old insulation does not need to be removed. An experienced insulation contractor simply drills holes in each wall cavity (from either the inside or outside) and uses a tube to fill each cavity with insulation. When finished, the holes are plugged or patched.
