Akarana Timbers Logo


A properly insulated home not only reduces heating and cooling costs, but also improves comfort. With various options for different applications, Akarana Timbers can provide you with the right solution for your project. We work with leading New Zealand suppliers of insulation and through our United Industries partners we have access to the right products at the right prices.


Insulation materials range from bulky fibre materials such as fiberglass, rockwool, cellulose, and natural fibres to rigid foam boards to sleek foils. Choosing the right insulation is dependent on many factors. Where you need to install the insulation, and what R-value is required are the main considerations. Along with these you may want to consider indoor air quality impacts, life cycle costs, recycled content, embodied carbon, and ease of installation, especially if you plan to do the installation yourself. Some insulation strategies require professional installation, while homeowners can easily handle others. Let us help you choose the best insulation solution for your project.
