Insulation reviews in Rockville
1- As the temperature pulmeted to below freezing first week of January 2014, our house stayed much warmer than before.
2- Although it is too early to anaylze energy savings but our furnace heat kicked in almost 50 percent less.
3- As a side effect the noise level from street has decreased as insulation seems to have some noise muffling effect.
The difference US Insulation made to the comfort level in the house speaks for itself. We have mad many renovations to the house like kitchen and bath remodel but this one to our surprise gave us the most return on investment and comfort. Thanks
For the blown fiberglass in the attics above our additions, they added spray foam (from a can) around any gaps per the contract and foam board baffles at the soffits. The installer noted that all our soffits were blocked and the batting insulation was too wide for the rafter channels, so he leveled it out as best he could to ensure an even coating of blown insulation. At the end, he sealed up the gaps between the attic and our to-be-finished upstairs (cape cod style, so all one room).
For the spray foam insulation, the team came in the next day, and I had to be out of the house due to fumes. I did come back around noon as they expected to be done well before then. They didn't know I came in and I went to the back of the house to watch TV on my work break. The one annoyance was during their cleanup, one of the installers came down into our kitchen and then saw me. He said he was looking for a vacuum cleaner to clean the stairs. I told him don't worry about the carpet as it was getting pulled up, but this was the one piece of unprofessionalism I noted above. Contractors should NEVER use the homeowner's property; they should bring their own tools, including vacuums!
While the spray foam can get very messy, they kept the splatter mostly contained to inside the crawlspace, not the finished flooring. However, I was surprised that they didn't tape off the outlet covers or light switched. since the particles are so small, we're going to have to replace the switches/receptacles at our cost. Also, there was a storm door screen that wasn't covered and now needs cleaned. Basically, I think they should have taken more care in covering the very few items we left upstairs and the outlets/switches.
They didn't spray around the window frames (large gaps where window weights used to be) because the open cell foam would expand too much. If I wasn't there, I think they would have just left, but it was clear in our contract discussions they needed to insulate those spaces too. They used a few cans of "Good Stuff" equivalent, but didn't fill in the gaps entirely. It did the job well enough, but it's a ding against them as I expected more preparation.
Lastly, I thought that AC&R would walk me through all the scheduling and final "test out" (for the Pepco rebate), but I had to contact them and schedule with someone different each time. They were always prompt, but I expect the experts to know to do this for/with me rather than expect me to know the process. I go through it once in a lifetime while they do it weekly.
While the end of the review sounds more negative than positive, I would definitely recommend AC&R out to others as they're priced right, they have been in business for over a century, and like any contractor, you just need to follow up to be sure everything is done to your satisfaction.
We originally signed up to have the crawl space insulated AND the attic. Unfortunately, my fiancee and I had a little miscommunication with the finances, and we were unable to do both. He suggested we do the attic, as it would save the most in heating costs, and let us out of the contract for the crawl space.
When the company came to insulate, they were clean, nice, and efficient. The prior owners had a little rodent problem, and the screens covering the attic vents were missing. The guys went above and beyond to make sure that we were all sealed up and wouldn't have that issue again. I can already tell the difference in the house. The top floor is toasty warm even when the heat is barely on.
From start to finish, our experience with
I contacted the company, spoke to
We also contacted two other participating contractors on the list to provide quotes as well. One company simply asked us to send them a copy of Atlas's quote and they would submit a quote to perform the work without even visiting our house! Ultimately, we chose Atlas to perform the work as their quote was clear and concise. And,
The guys were GREAT! They even took care of a few extra things that were not on the scope of work and
Two items that were discovered during the audit were that the carbon monoxide levels emitting from our oven and furnace were higher than the recommended levels. We had both items serviced as recommended. But, I was shocked that the company that serviced the oven wanted to charge us an extra $199.81 (on top of the service fee) just to test the carbon monoxide level. And, they argued that they levels Pepco wanted to see where impossible to achieve. I contacted
And. for the first time in 14 years our kitchen floor is not freezing! It's the same temperature as our other floors thanks to Atlas and the insulation work and the sealing of the band joists etc. Its amazing! Our house even sounds different!
I could go on and on with my kudos for Atlas, and I highly recommend them to everyone.
and I was able to pick the areas that I really wanted to cover. They created a
