Attic Insulation in Frederick
One of the most important locations of your home or building to insulate properly is your attic. Insulating an attic the right way will keep warm air from seeping into the living areas in the summer. It will also prevent warm air from living spaces escaping into an unheated attic in the wintertime. Air flow such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a massive area, it is generally one of the first areas where we improve the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also gain because your hvac system will not have to work as hard and will last longer.
Insulating a Basement or Crawl Space
The basement and crawl space are 2 locations that should be inspected for adequate insulation. The ideal form of insulation will reduce moisture and drafts in crawl spaces and basements.

You will also discover that spray foam insulation also can help with pest and rodent control in underground spaces like basements.
Varieties Of Insulation Available in Frederick, MD
The type of insulation we suggest is dependent on the degree of coverage and comfort you need for your home or building. We install four different types of insulation: spray foam, cellulose, blown in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is the most effective insulation to seal off air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical compound that spreads out to fill every void and is waterproof and insect resistant. There are 2 varieties, closed cell and open cell.
Blow-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled materials. It is used in attics and wall cavities and is resistant to pests and mold. Loose fill fiberglass insulation is blow-in fiberglass shreds and has similar applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating product.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal solution. It is a long lasting insulating option and is primarily used in unfinished areas of a house or business buildings.
Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their wall spaces. Over time, batts and loose fill insulation can sag or get soaked and will lose their insulating ability. We can easily use different insulation materials to remedy this issue including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The kind of insulation product we recommend will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the outside.
