showed up on time and got the job done in an efficient manner. They were professional and cleaned up after the job was done. Holes were placed every 3-4 feet and foam blown into the space between the dry wall and concrete. This was done since this part of my house had no insulation and the rooms were very cold during the winter. The rooms are not perfect but approx. 60-70 warmer now. My only gripe is they placed too much spackle over the holes and I had a difficult time sanding the wall to make them smooth; this created a lot of dust to clean up and took longer than I anticipated. Overall i'm pleased with the work.

Workers were punctual,neat and polite. Some minor confusion about the installation of baffles was resolved. The estimator included their installation in the price estimate and said they were necessary, but it was agreed by the main office , the workers on site and me on the day of installation that they were not needed because our attic has no soffit vents. An adjustment to the estimate price was agreed to.

We live in a house build in the 60's and an energy Audit indicated that we needed insulation in attic but we were skeptical as we already had some bat insulation in place. Contemplated to have it done by some handy man renting insulation blowing machine from hardware store but eventually decided to get it professionally installed by

. We were pleasantly surprised to see the results once the job was completed almost instantaneously.
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

It went extremely well. The drywall had to be removed the entire length of one wall.

knocked down the wall, insulated behind the wall/cinderblock backing, sanded, painted and restored to better than new condition -- super fast. The room had a cold draft entering through the wall. Found out when the house was originally built, the builder did not insulate between the cinderblock outside wall and the interior wall. Caused constant coldness in the room. Now that this repair has been done, the room actually can hold heat during the winter and is cool in the summer. Thank you for helping make this room usable year round.

, the AC&R salesperson, was very knowledgeable and confident. They were the 2nd quote I got for work and came in even lower than I expected (which gave me pause as a low bid is a red flag). But true to her word, they did the work professionally (mostly...see below) and promptly. While I had another company do the energy audit for the Pepco rebate, AC&R took over the work, did the blown fiberglass one day and the spray foam the next.



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.

These guys were amazing. First of all, When they came to give the estimate, the guy (I forget his name.) was friendly, helpful, and seemed genuine. The thing that really stuck out to me was his comment "the whole point of insulating is to save money. You don't want to waste money on heat, and if you spend too much on insulation it defeats the whole point."
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.

It all started with a desire to reinsulate our attic. We consulted with a local big box hardware store who came our and provided a quote. We also asked a neighbor (who is a contractor who they use to do their insulation work. He in turn gave us the name of a neighbor that recently had a Pepco Home Energy Assessment performed. I contacted the neighbor who said their assessment was conducted by
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, one of Pepco's participating contractors.
From start to finish, our experience with
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was STELLAR! I can't say enough good things about this company. The quality of the staff; the work performed and the exceptional customer service all get 5 stars!.
I contacted the company, spoke to
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
who came to our home and performed a thorough comprehensive home energy audit. He was on time for our appointment and was completely professional, very knowledgeable and patient. Within days, we received a comprehensive easy to understand audit with several recommendations for our home. I also appreciated that
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
let me know that I could select from a list of participating contractors for any of the improvements if I choose to move forward. I asked
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to provide a quote to perform the work.
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,

made us feel very comfortable.

was very patient with us while we rescheduled the work a couple of different times and while we changed the scope of work a couple of times. The work was scheduled to take three days. The crew,

showed up on time! Something I really appreciate. They were extremely polite and professional and dealt with our two elderly dogs with ease. They guys were upbeat and cheerful in spite of the cramped quarters and nasty job they were about to embark on.
The guys were GREAT! They even took care of a few extra things that were not on the scope of work and
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
found a wiring issue in the process of process of doing their work that he informed us.
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
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
with Atlas in a panic. He spoke to the company servicing the oven. I told
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
that they wanted another $199.81 to conduct a carbon monoxide test and
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
promptly said he would come out and retest it himself. Which he did, and fortunately the adjustment that the company servicing the oven made were successful and the carbon monoxide levels were drastically reduced. We had the furnace serviced as well, and unfortunately during the test out phase of the audit the furnace still did not pass. We contacted the HVAC company again, and they returned again and made additional adjustments, but they did not have a carbon monoxide
Rockville Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. This stunned me as I had made it a point to tell them what the scope of work was and that we needed to show that the levels were lowered enough to meet the requirements of the audit. Once again Atlas came to the rescue and came back to our house and retested the furnace. Again, we were happy that the second adjustment to the furnace brought the carbon monoxide levels down to lower than acceptable levels!
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.

Set up the appointment easily, although the owner asked that he be the last bidder on the project. Thought that was a little strange for an appointment call, but otherwise he was pleasant and professional.

they were in my house. My brother, who is a licensed home inspector, looked at their work and approved. He also thought it was a very good price. We'll see how my energy bills look this winter, but it was a very good experience and a very good price in my opinion.
