Now is the Time for Energy Efficient House Insulation
Energy efficient insulation, earth-friendly insulation, green insulation—whatever you call it, new insulation is all the rage right now. If you want a lower air conditioning bill—or to lower your heating bill, experience a more comfortable home or office, or do your part to green our world—now is the time to make the investment to either replace this important thermal barrier or beef up what you have.
Installing radiant barriers and insulating your home or office is something we take seriously at RoofCrafters. From selecting the right product to ensuring we earn the right to being called the Austin insulation contractor of choice, our attention is on doing things that set us apart from other thermal protection companies. If you’re willing to do the homework you’ll find that there is a huge difference between how one insulation company plans their jobs and does the work and another.
Our own research has led us to select Owens Corning as our preferred product and vendor. Read below to learn “why pink is green.” In addition to having sustainable business practices and a product that saves energy, cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions, and is made out of 40% recycled material, Owens Corning also provides a caliber of training that sets them—and us—apart. Because we know that preparation is critical to getting the job done right, we’ve invested time and resources in learning all the extra steps excellence requires. While some insulation companies may look for ways to cut corners, we go the extra mile, with written proposals that clearly define your needs and options, and have Project Planners who will work with you so you can make educated choices that serve you well.

Why PINK is Green
Owens Corning is committed to sustainable business practices, and takes pride in the fact that its energy-saving products make a significant net positive impact on the environment. In fact, in the first year of use, Owens Corning home insulation saves approximately nine times the amount of energy used by its company annually. And year after year, its insulation products continue to help conserve energy without consuming any additional resources.
By reducing the energy required to maintain a comfortable living or work environment, insulation reduces the greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. Each year, Owens Corning insulating products eliminate more than one billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions—equal to the annual emissions of 200 million passenger cars or two billion barrels of oil.
Eco-friendly manufacturing and distribution
Owens Corning PINK insulation not only saves energy; it also helps conserve natural resources by using widely available and plentiful resources—sand and recycled glass—in its manufacturing process.
All of its glass fiber and foam products made in North America are certified for their recycled content by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS). Its glass fiber products use an average of 40% recycled glass content, and its rigid foam insulation uses an average of 15% recycled content, with all foam scrap recycled back into the process instead of going to landfills. And when it comes to distribution, its compression packaging means it can ship more insulation per truckload, resulting in 25% fewer transportation miles and reduced pollution from truck emissions.
