The Facts About Attic Insulation Improvements

Blown-in insulation consists of cellulose material made from recycled newspapers. It's installed using a machine that breaks it down and blows it through a long hose into your attic. Adding blown-in insulation to your attic provides plenty of benefits to homeowners. When done right, attic insulation hugs your home like a blanket to keep you comfortable with more consistent temperatures. It also reduces your impact on the environment by decreasing your energy use and can lower your energy bills. It’s not just blowing hot air—homeowners can earn up to 107% back by insulating their attic according to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost v. Value report.

Attic insulation is measured by an “R-value,” which indicates how insulation controls the flow of heat and cold through your home. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) states that by combining proper equipment maintenance and upgrades with recommended insulation, you can cut your energy use for heating and cooling from 20% to 50%. In the Baltimore area, the DOE recommends R-49 attic insulation; however, building codes only require an R-38. With 60 million homes in the U.S. currently under-insulated, many homeowners are settling for less and missing out on the comfortable living space that upgrading your attic insulation provides.

Brothers did my gutters. The most professional of any of the contractors. They did the work sooner than expected, they were extremely clean, and they quoted the same price with a better product.
Willie M., Baltimore, MD
Brother's did an excellent job installing my new roof and gutters. They were quick, very professional and cleaned up well after they were finished. I particularly liked the sales person I worked with. There were no games, no "sign now for x% off", and no pressure.
