Your choice of insulation. Every attic is a little different. You and your contractor will work together to decide which insulation material will work best for your home. The weather and climate in your region may play an important role in this decision. There are several types of insulation to choose from, including:

1) Blown-in Insulation

2) Spray foam insulation

3) Batted (or blanket) insulation

4) Radiant barrier insulation

A higher R-value means that specific material is better equipped to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Insulation with a higher R-value is typically more expensive.
