Information For Cellulose Insulation
Contractors & Installers

Insulation contractors and installers often work with many different types of insulation products. It is critical for contractors and installers to have a strong understanding of the differences between the various types of insulations and to be knowledgeable in the proper techniques for installation of each product they offer. CIMA also works closely with the Insulation Contractors Association of America (ICAA) to help foster communication and interaction with CIMA members.

Ensuring insulation contractors have a good working knowledge of cellulose insulation is a high priority for CIMA. The association recommends consumers use a professional insulation contractor for all cellulose insulation installations to ensure the highest energy efficiency and results from the product. This website provides detailed information to help ensure insulation installers have the facts about insulation products, contact information for CIMA Producer Members who can provide more specifics about their particular brands of cellulose insulation, and technical information and instructions about the proper uses of cellulose insulation.

Insulation contractors are encouraged to consider making cellulose insulation their company’s primary insulation product instead of less energy efficient batt insulation or more costly foam products that are not eco-friendly. CIMA has a variety of marketing materials available for download to help insulation contractors promote their use of cellulose insulation.

CIMA also offers consumers a referral service here on the website for finding contactors who specialize in cellulose insulation. Insulation contractors interested in installation referrals should contact a CIMA producer member company that services their state.
