Then, which insulation type is used most commonly in the United States?

Blanket insulation -- the most common and widely available type of insulation -- comes in the form of batts or rolls. It consists of flexible fibers, most commonly fiberglass. You also can find batts and rolls made from mineral (rock and slag) wool, plastic fibers, and natural fibers, such as cotton and sheep's wool.

One may also ask, does USA Insulation work? USA Insulation seems to do quality work, though like any other organization that operates as a franchise, the work quality of each branch will indutibly vary. This job requires dedicated, hard work from both crew members on the job. I enjoy this kind of fast paced, hard work.
