    We recently purchased a newly constructed townhome and found that the lower level had terrible sound transference. We could literally hear our neighbor’s conversations! Glenn came out a couple of times to assess the situation and, after meeting with a few soundproofing companies, we opted to proceed with Glenn and his team at Total Home. This is NOT a cheap project, but we were aware of this when we started to look into it. We sent the plans/quote to the developer of our property and we all conferenced a call to discuss the most effective way to handle to problem. Glenn was professional every step of the way and removed costs from the quote once he understood what was already in place under the drywall. His team came in and were very respectful and left the property clean at the end of each day. It was a big project that took a couple weeks in total, but they did everything they said they would do and everything that we asked of them. We knew this would not create a 100% sound barrier, but we would have purchased a single family home if that was what we needed. The improvement that we have experienced, however, is tremendous. We are very happy that we hired Total Home and spent the money to improve our quality of life at home.

    I felt that Dave provided the most honest and credible guidance of all the contractors I contacted. He advised me that some of the “solutions” that others suggested were going to be a waste of money. Ultimately, his targeted approach cost me about half of the others. He and his team were timely and worked neatly.

    I contacted Alex regarding a Structural Repair I needed for my home involving reinforcing a floor joist that had been damaged. This is a somewhat complex repair involving removing drywall, installing reinforcement beams, adding Lally columns, and working around other obstacles including plumbing and electrical wires. Alex had an in-depth knowledge of what was needed for the repair, and upon doing the actual work, ran into additional obstacles that he was able to work around with the utmost skill and precision. For example, in working around some of the electrical wires in the floor, he had to notch out some areas and install steel plates for additional protection of the wires. Great communication between emails, calls, and texts. Alex was very prompt at getting back to me regarding various aspects of the job including planning, modifications, and various other things. I typically research the work entailed myself ahead of time to get an idea of what is needed, and what to expect, and in the first few phone calls with Alex he touched upon just about everything I was going to inquire about. He had an excellent knowledge of the job requirements up front and went the extra step to use bolts, instead of nails, to lock the joists in place, which I was very happy about. The rest of his team was equally skilled and courteous. Once complete, the drywall was replaced, spackled, sanded, painted, and you would have no idea that any work had been done there at all. The entire area was cleaned thoroughly, including sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping. I very highly recommend them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is insulation?

+

Insulation is material that provides a barrier within a home’s walls, ceilings, and floors to regulate temperature and noise. If your home gets overly hot in the summer and cold in the winter, it’s likely not insulated properly.

Insulation efficiency is measured by R-value, which determines how resistant different types of insulation are to heat flow (or energy loss). R-values are measured by inch of thickness. The higher the R-value, the better the performance and the higher the price.

How much does insulation cost?

+

Our project data lists insulation costs between $1,400 and $6,300, but your final price will depend on the type of insulation you choose, its R-value, and how much you need.

  • Fiberglass insulation: $0.30 – $1.50
  • Blown-in insulation: $1 – $2
  • Spray foam insulation: $0.50 – $2
  • Radiant insulation: $0.20 – $1
  • Rigid board insulation: $0.25 – $1

Luckily, insulation is one of the best investments you can make in your home—it has an ROI of at least 100%, meaning you’ll likely make back what you spend in a few years or so.

What is insulation made of?

+

Insulation is made of many different materials, which can also impact the R-value needed for energy efficiency.

  • Fiberglass: The most common insulation material made from glass. Fiberglass is a skin and lung irritant, so you’ll need to wear gloves and clothing when working with fiberglass insulation.
  • Cellulose: Made from recycled paper products, plus borate for fire and insect resistance.
  • Foam: Made from polystyrene, polyisocyanurate, or polyurethane plastic. You can also install cement-based foam insulation using rigid foam boards.
  • Mineral wool: Made of fire-resistant rock wool, a mix of natural materials, or slag wool, made from a molten metal product.
  • Natural fibers: Made from various recycled natural materials, including cotton, sheep’s wool, and straw.

Where is insulation in a house?

+

If your attic is unfinished or you’ve ever demolished an interior wall, you might notice batt or spray foam insulation between the studs. Putting insulation between your walls and floors helps keep your home comfortable and your energy costs down. In addition to walls and attics, you can install insulation in your garage, in floors above vented crawl spaces, and basements.

  • Garage Insulation: $0.50 to $1.25 per square foot
  • Floor and crawl space insulation: $1 to $5 per square foot
  • Basement insulation: $1.50 to $2.50 per square foot
  • Wall insulation: $1 to $4 per square foot
  • Attic insulation: $1,500 to $6,000
  • Roof insulation: $1,500 to $4,500 or more

What are the different types of insulation?

+

There are a few types of home insulation, and they all are made of different materials— most commonly, fiberglass, cellulose, and foam. Insulation includes these materials in the following forms:

  • Loose-fill: Also called “blown-in,” loose-fill is sprayed into wall cavities, attics, and other oddly-shaped areas using special equipment. This insulation is usually made of fiberglass, cellulose, or mineral wool.
  • Batts: An affordable insulation blanket best for unfinished spaces, such as between framing, studs, or joists. They come in pre-cut sections suitable for DIY installation and are mostly made from fiberglass, though other versions are also available.
  • Rolls: Similar to batt insulation, but comes in rolls. Its make-up leaves less chance for gaps between sections and is more efficient than other types.
  • Foam board: One of the most popular insulation types that can be used almost anywhere in your home. Foam boards also have a high R-value.
  • Spray foam: Expands and hardens to fill gaps, small and large. Can be closed-cell or open-cell, but closed-cell has a higher R-value, making it more expensive per square foot.
  • Radiant barriers: Does not reduce heat flow but directs heat away from the home instead. Radiant barriers are DIY-friendly and affordable, but they won’t be as effective in the winter months.
