Insulation for New Construction

Collins & Co. has insulated over 50,000 new homes built in Connecticut and Massachusetts over the last 70 years.

In the last 10 years, the insulation industry has dramatically changed, as the latest building codes have been upgraded, and the implementation of building science has become standard practice. No longer is R value the major consideration. There are many choices today, from fiberglass batts, BIBs, spray foam, rigid insulation and more. Your Collins & Co. sales consultant has the experience and knowledge to analyze your project, and recommend the best value to achieve your insulating goals.

Air Sealing

EnergyComplete® Sealant: The future of air sealing

Air leakage is one of the biggest sources of heating and cooling loss in a home. Air sealing is the only way to resolve this issue. Our preferred air sealing method is the Energy Complete® system made by Owens Corning. This latex sealant will fill any gap that allows air infiltration, which is one of the most important steps to building tight energy-efficient homes.

  • An air sealing solution that creates a gasket between the lumber and drywall
  • Meets the stricter air-sealing requirements of the 2012 IECC
  • Quick install at a lower cost than traditional spray foam insulation

More and more states are adopting the 2012 IECC or other strict energy-efficiency codes. Homebuyers expect a new home to be comfortable and energy efficient. EnergyComplete® Sealant is your advantage now and in the future. A new construction home sealed with EnergyComplete® Sealant will provide you long-term comfort and energy savings.

  • Combined with additional insulation, it can lower monthly heating and cooling costs by up to 33%.
  • Reduces air infiltration by up to 70%
  • First line of defense against allergens and pests
  • Reduce exterior noise by up to 40%
  • Long-lasting performance with a safe product
