Basement Insulation Contractors

Basement Insulation Experts in the Washington, DC Metro Area (Maryland & Virginia)

basement insulationMany builders use basement and crawl space foundations, but few of them properly insulate foundation walls. Most builders simply use fiberglass batt insulation between the floor joists because it's inexpensive, but it's a poor option for insulating a home's foundation.

Problems In Basements And Crawl Spaces

Fiberglass batting used in basement insulation can easily move or fall out of place, and it won't prevent air leakage in the basement or crawl space. Air leakage can result in moisture, and where there is moisture, mold can grow.

The Benefits of Air Sealing And Basement Insulation

We know that a properly sealed and insulated basement or crawl space can improve indoor air quality and increase a home's energy efficiency, and Green Collar Crew has the solution to your improperly insulated basement foundation in the Washington, DC Metro Area.

Seal Air Leaks 

Before any other work is done, Green Collar Crew technicians will seal the rim joist around the foundation to make sure that there are no cracks where air can leak through.

Rigid Foam Insulation for Basements

After all the cracks are sealed, the walls are insulated with rigid foam insulation. Because basements are susceptible to moisture, rigid foam insulation is often used because it won't absorb moisture, compress, fall out of place, or get moldy.

Trust Our Experience 

You don't have to live with cold, damp and moldy basements and crawl spaces. Green Collar Crew has worked with many residents in the Washington, DC Metro Area, and we can work with you to ensure you foundation is safe, stable and dry.

Start With an Energy Inspection

Having proper insulation can help increase your comfort, save energy, and improve your home's safety and durability. But the first step is to schedule an energy inspection to find out exactly what home improvement work is recommended for your home.

We were unaware of what was involved in an energy audit and your audior took the time to explain everything. We were impressed with the report which told us the areas in which we need to take action on. He never pressured us to use any particular contractors, he just suggested that we go to the HomeEnergyTeam web site to select contractors of our own choice. He did an excellent job and we HIGHLY recommend the Home Energy Team Affiliates. We already have recommended them to several of our neighbors. Again, EXCELLENT JOB!

Your home energy audit proved to be very informative and helpful. I was not aware of the updraft created inside our walls because of the balloon framing construction. You said that that can cause heat to be pulled out of the house with the draft going up inside the walls and should be re-mediated. You also said that the attic insulation was insufficient and that fiberglass batts can leave spaces for around the edges causing heat loss and that it should have blown in insulation on top of what was there to seal the whole attic and increase the R factor. Thank You for all your advice and expertise. You made me aware of things I should consider and did the upgrades. I can already see the difference on my utility bills!
