Types of Insulation We Install
We install the following types of insulation in homes and buildings throughout the Germantown, 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 percent 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. If you want to install one of the most versatile options, contact us for spray foam insulation in Germantown.
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.

Signs You Need Insulation Removal and Replacement
As our country’s focus on healthy IAQ (indoor air quality) increases, we more frequently examine potential sources of air contamination. When insulation gets damaged or deteriorates, it can lead to many problems, including negatively impacting your IAQ.
Signs it’s time to remove and replace your insulation include:
- Creepy crawlies – Bad insulation makes a good nest for bugs, rodents, and other unwanted houseguests. Even if you get rid of the critters, they leave behind fecal air contaminants in your insulation.
- Drafts – When some rooms are draftier than others, it can indicate a problem with attic insulation.
- Frequent changes in indoor temperatures – This could be because of deteriorating crawl space/basement insulation or shifting insulation in attics. Heat and cold enter the weak spots and sabotage your HVAC system’s hard work.
- Higher energy bills – Your HVAC system has to work harder to overcome air loss.
- Moldy smells – If your insulation gets damp, the only solution is to remove and replace it. If you don’t see mold now, you’ll see – and smell it – soon.
- Ongoing allergy symptoms – Some fibrous insulation enhances allergies, especially if deteriorating or moldy. If you or a family member experiences an increase in allergy symptoms (congestion, headaches, itchy/watery eyes, sneezing), it could be from air contaminants. Consider insulation removal and spray foam insulation replacement.
Germantown insulation removal should be safe and affordable. It should also be managed by your professional insulation solutions company. In addition to the health risks involved, if there is damage resulting from a DIY insulation removal and installation, your insurance company can deny coverage.
