Types of Insulation We Install
We install the following types of insulation in homes and buildings throughout the Baltimore, Maryland area:
Fiberglass: Fiberglass, which has been used to insulate homes for decades, is available as loose-fill or batts. Fiberglass is made of tiny glass fibers and is often installed in attics but can be used to insulate walls and crawl spaces as well.
Cellulose: Cellulose is environmentally friendly—it consists of up to 85% recycled material and takes less energy to make than other insulation materials—and can be installed in any area of a home.
Spray foam: Typically made of polyurethane, spray foam is applied wet and expands into thick foam. Spray foam insulation can be installed in crevices and hard-to-reach areas and can help reduce air infiltration.
Radiant barrier: Radiant barrier is a type of reflective insulation material typically installed in attics (under the roof) to help reduce cooling costs by reflecting radiant heat.
Rigid foam: As it sounds, rigid board insulation is available as a foam panel that can be cut. The sizes most often used are 2 x 8 feet and 4 x 8 feet, but the panels vary in thickness and width.
Insulation Removal in Baltimore
Well-installed, quality insulation can last 80 years or longer. But after only 15 years, many homes’ insulation begins to shred and deteriorate; if your home is more than 10 years old, you might want to consider an insulation inspection or energy audit.
For health and safety reasons, insulation removal requires professional handling and disposal.
Signs You Need Insulation Removal
Most people want to lower their monthly heating and cooling costs. New insulation can save 15% on monthly energy bills when you add insulation to attics, basements and crawl spaces.
Also, different types of insulation have different life spans. Cellulose and fiberglass insulation can begin deterioration between 10 to 15 years after installation.
You may need to remove and replace your Baltimore insulation if you have:
- Cheap or badly installed insulation
- Construction add-ons/renovations
- “Critters” or rodent infestation

- Fire damage or smoke odors
- Frequent allergies or extended illness
- High energy bills
- It’s dirty or “dusty”
