Building a house is one of the most stressful things anybody ever chooses to do, with an endless stream of decisions from selecting the type of floor to the kind of faucets you pick - it's no wonder insulation may be the least of your worries. While many homebuilders often let their general contractors decide on the materials that go into the walls and in the areas unseen, the type of insulation you use is one of the most important decisions you'll make. Because let's get real, it'll be much easier to change out your faucets than to reinsulate your home a few years from now, which is something you really don't want to do. Insulation is something you want to get right the first time, which is why you should use HempWool. In the year 2020, we found that the average person spent about 62% of their waking time in their home.
