Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does insulation cost?

The cost of insulation will vary significantly, with prices as high as $2,800. However, homeowners spend an average of $350 for insulation installation and upgrades (keep in mind this average cost includes small and big spaces). 

The actual cost you pay will depend on a number of factors, including where you live, the total square footage of your space, the cost of labor and any preparation and cleanup work needed to complete the job. The type of insulation is one of the biggest factors. Contact insulation contractors near you to get price estimates.

What are the advantages of insulating a house?

Insulating your home has many benefits and is worth the time, energy and money. Here’s why:

  • Insulation reduces energy and heating costs.
  • Less energy consumption also results in a reduction of pollutant emissions.
  • Insulation prevents condensation from moisture and stark temperature differentials.
  • And it reduces noise from passing through the walls.

How do I hire someone to insulate my home?

The best way to hire someone to insulate your home is by searching for contractors near you online or using the Thumbtack app. Start by entering your zip code to find a list of top-rated insulation contractors in your area. Then, whittle down the search results by customer ratings and reviews. Pay special attention to the positive (and negative) reviews, and check out the contractors’ photos — these can give you an idea of the contractors’ quality of work on past insulation projects. 

Also, check licensing requirements in your state and ensure that whoever you work with has a license (if needed). The final step is reaching out to at least three or more contractors to receive cost estimates and compare bids.

What is insulation?

Insulation is a material that slows or inhibits heat flow from one area to another. It can take many forms. A common type is fiberglass or mineral wool (aka rock wool and sag wool). Another is cellulose insulation, an environmentally friendly option that is blown into wall cavities. Sprayed foam insulation is a go-to option if you need to add insulation to existing areas and around obstructions.

What are the signs I need new insulation?

There are several signs you might need new insulation. For example, you may need to upgrade your insulation if:

  • Your electricity, heating and cooling bills continue to rise.
  • An auditor notes during your whole-house energy assessment that you need insulation in certain areas.
  • Your rooms have uneven (and uncomfortable) temperatures.
  • Drafts of cold air are entering your house.
  • You’re having moisture, mold or mildew issues.

If you think your home might be under-insulated or it’s time for some better insulation, hire an insulation contractor

Can you put insulation over existing insulation?

There are many cases in which it is acceptable to place new insulation over old insulation. The main instance in which you shouldn’t place new insulation over old insulation is when the old insulation is wet or decayed. Also, keep in mind where the vapor barrier is. If there is a layer of vapor barrier between the new and old insulation, it can trap moisture and lead to mold growth. 

If you're not experienced in insulation installation, hire an insulation contractor near you to take on this job.

Can insulation be added to existing walls?

It can be difficult to add insulation to existing walls, but it’s not impossible. If you’re finishing your basement or adding siding to your house, you might want to add new insulation to the existing wall. Contact an insulation contractor to find out what your walls require — and how much it will cost.

What are some common types of insulation?

There are several common types of insulation, including:

  • Batts and rolls, which are usually made from fiberglass or mineral wool and can be placed between wall studs and ceiling/floor joists.
  • Concrete block insulation, which protects the outside of concrete walls from significant heat loss.
  • Blown-in insulation, which is made from fiberglass, cellulose or mineral wool and can fill in irregularly shaped areas.
  • Spray foam, which has a high R-value and is great at stopping air from leaking through holes and cracks. 

If you’re not sure which type of insulation you should install in your home, an insulation contractor can help you decide.

What areas should I insulate in my home?

There are several absolutely critical parts of your home you should insulate to save on energy costs, retain heat, reduce noise and protect your pipes and ductwork. The first is the attic and roof. Because heat rises, it will naturally tend to escape through the top of a house. Insulating the attic or roof can prevent heat loss. Insulating the walls is next on the list. You can also insulate your flooring, crawlspace and basement. 

To find someone to help you insulate these areas in your home, start searching for insulation contractors near you on Thumbtack.

What is r-value insulation?

R-value — or thermal resistance value — is a measure of any surface or material’s resistance to heat flow. The greater the R-value, the more insulation the material provides. R-value depends on the thickness, density and type of insulation, as well as the moisture accumulation, age and temperature.

Jeff Green and his team were excellent to work with. Our insulation installation was done quickly and efficiently. The pricing was extremely competitive and we couldn't be happier with the work. I'd definitely recommend Palmetto Gutters & Insulation to anyone who needs insulation work completed.

Jeff and Phil did an excellent job insulating two sections of our attic as well as covering a hole in the attic before beginning the work. They also added roll insulation to the floor above the crawl space. This has added an immense amount of warmth to the home. Well worth the investment. Hire these guys!

Jeff and his partner did a great job of removing the attic insulation and replacing with new quality blow-in insulation. They came out a few day’s before to measure which gave me a more accurate quote of material/labor. They cleaned after the job we complete and I’m very satisfied with the entire process.

Jeff and team did an outstanding job from start to finish on our project. He and his team were very punctual and professional and easy to work with. They completely insulated our crawl space and installed a moisture barrier throughout. The price was very reasonable for the work and for the quality.

Jeff responded promptly for my request for a quote and his crew worked hard all day to replace the insulation in my crawlspace and replace the vapor barrier. They also installed screens over my attic vents to help keep the squirrels out and blew in insulation throughout the attic. They finished by putting a new tent at the top of my attic stairs. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again!

Great job. Gave the right choice for insulation at an amazing price. One of the room specifically used to get very hot. It is staying cool and comfy. The job was not easy as the roof is complex. Great work. Keep it up.

I give them three stars only because the guys worked through some tough conditions (heat and low roof attic) to install my insulation and because the owner worked with me on the price to make sure I felt comfortable with what I was paying. BUT I stayed home from work one day and it ended up not getting done that day because the machine wouldn't work because it was the "cheap" machine. That was determined at 10:30am and somehow the project could not be completed the rest of the day. Instead they had to come back Saturday morning (not ideal for us) to finish. Everyone that showed up did not have a ladder and or other materials needed- extension cord, drill, etc.) and had to then leave to get one (my attic doesn't have stairs to it) and yet the next crew that showed up still did not have a ladder. Mind you, I told them to bring a ladder when I scheduled the appointment but communication between the employees and owner and then to myself was non existent which was very frustrating. I will say it was a very hot day, I sympathize about that, and provided water, encouraged breaks etc. but plan ahead. Plan to come very early, or later in the evening. The first day they planned to come at 9am, showed up at 9:30am and had to leave to get a ladder so they started around 10, the second day they planned to be there at 8am, showed up at 8:40am and then had to leave to get a ladder so they started around 9:30... it was only getting hotter every minute. I also had to check after the work and tell them it wasnt complete. I felt like they were just tired and hot and didnt want to do anymore, which may or may not have been the case but when they told me they were done, only about a third of my attic was completed. I had to ask them to go back up and finish the other 2/3 (this was after the machine had been dis-assembled and loaded into the truck). Overall, it was stressful but it is done and it was done for a fair price. I am glad the owner worked with me on the price, if that had not happened, this would have been a total L.
