Wall insulation has the unfortunate side effect of being the most damaging to a home’s pre-existing walls, but the value is well worth it for every customer especially if you’re going to get the walls painted in the near future.
We drill a 1” hole into the wall above and below the cross bracing in each bay to insulate walls. A bay is a space between the studs. We then pump cellulose insulation into the wall under pressure to fill the cavities.
Next, we put a plug, patch, seal & primer to the holes. The patches will be ready for paint in the next day or two. Fiberglass and blue jean cotton batts are used in additions and new construction projects.
Tip #1: Wall insulation saves you money
Nationwide, the vast majority of homes are under-insulated. Around Pleasant Hill and points locally in California, buildings even twenty or thirty years old are severely under-insulated. If your home is one of them — and it probably is — you could stop paying the power company and start saving it for yourself with new wall insulation.
Insulating your walls can reduce your power consumption by about 20%. This also reduces wear on your HVAC system since it’ll need to work less, work more efficiently, and require fewer repairs.
Tip #2: Wall insulation provides more comfort
As the wind blows against the outside of your home, some amount of it will seep in. Likewise, some amount of air will always be billowing out. The same is true for the sun’s heat, too. Properly installed wall insulation gives you more consistent temperatures throughout the house.
Tip #3: Wall insulation protects your home
Wall insulation not only improves the comfort level in your home but also improves sound quality. Echos in larger, empty rooms and the noise from traffic or barking dogs outside can drop by as much as half with wall insulation. Typically only exterior walls are insulated for the purpose of energy efficiency, but insulated interior walls can make for a quieter space.
Heat and moisture can also build up in your walls. This can lead to mold growth, invite rodents and pests, and cause other structural problems. Adequate wall insulation can mitigate these threats.

I can’t believe we waited so long to insulate our walls. Our daughter Denise came home for a visit and couldn’t believe how cool and comfortable the house was. She remembers how hot and unbearable the summer nights were, so hot you couldn’t sleep. Not only are we cooler we have noticed that the house is a lot more quiet, bonus! Thank you all for your excellent service.Patricia E.
