Lower Your Energy Bills and Make Your Home More Comfortable Today
If you’re considering new insulation to make your Maryland home more comfortable and efficient, the first place to start is the attic. Because heat rises, any deficiencies in your current insulation will allow heat to escape from the living area to the attic. By adding more attic insulation, you all but stop this loss, leading to lower energy costs year-round.
Your home can lose up to 25% of its heat through the roof or attic. Homes in the Mid-Atlantic can save up to 17% on heating and cooling costs with home sealing and insulation, on average, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
When you need quality attic insulation for your home in the DC area, turn to our experts at Winner Insulation. Our veteran-owned company features superior service and excellence in everything we do. We serve clients throughout the DC metro area and are here to help with all your home insulation needs.

Our Insulation Products for Your DC Attic
At Winner Insulation, we feature several types of insulation that would work well for your attic in Maryland or Virginia. These include:
- Fiberglass batts: Designed to fit between the attic’s floor joists, our fiberglass batts provide excellent thermal performance at a great price.
- Cellulose: A loose-fill product blown into place by a specialized machine, cellulose insulation is made from recycled newspaper treated to be resistant to fire, mold, pests, and more. It offers good thermal permanence and air sealing at a competitive price.
- Spray foam: Offering the highest R-value per inch, spray foam insulation is applied as a liquid that expands and adheres to nearby surfaces. This gives it excellent thermal performance and air sealing capabilities in a single product.

Attic Insulation Types
The right type of attic insulation for Mid-Atlantic homes depends on which type is currently installed and the R-value required for your home. Common types of attic insulation include loose-fill, spray board, batts, rolls, foam board, and vapor barriers.
Below are some of the types of insulation we install in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC, attics:
- Loose-fill attic insulation: Fiberglass or cellulose loose-fill insulation is easily blown or sprayed into hard-to-reach places like your attic. It’s also a good option for installing over existing insulation.
- Attic insulation batts: These pre-cut sections of insulation are installed easily between the framing studs and joists in your attic.
- Attic insulation rolls: These are ideal for attics, where long rolls of insulation at pre-cut widths can be run between studs and joists.
- Foam board attic insulation: Versatile foam insulation boards can be used almost anywhere in your home, including the attic. They reduce heat conduction through wood, steel studs, and other structural elements.
- Spray foam attic insulation: Ideal for sealing around doors, windows, and vents, spray foam insulation is often used to fill small gaps and cracks.
- Attic vapor barriers: Vapor barriers help control moisture buildup that can reduce your insulation’s R-value and cause mold or rot.
DIY Attic Insulation vs. Hiring an Insulation Professional
Many homeowners attempt DIY attic insulation as a cost-saving measure. While we understand the impulse, there are risks associated with installing attic insulation yourself, including:
- Failure to seal attic air leaks
- Failure to fix roof leaks
- Fire hazards due to improper installation
- Improper attic ventilation
- Health and safety risks during installation
- Improper installation leading to future problems
Our Attic Insulation Services
Winner Insulation provides a full array of attic insulation services in Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, DC.
- Energy audits: Our home energy audit service identifies where your home is leaking energy and where your home’s insulation gaps are.
- Seal attic air leaks: We eliminate gaps and holes that allow air to flow from your attic to other living spaces. This produces a thermal barrier that prevents heat transfer into and out of the attic once your insulation is installed.
- Attic insulation removal: If you need a contractor to remove insulation from your attic, we can help. As part of our attic insulation price estimate, we will determine if you need to remove old attic insulation before installing new insulation.
- Installing attic insulation: We install a variety of attic insulation styles, including spray foam insulation, pre-cut insulation batts, insulation rolls, spray foam insulation, and more. We’ll select the right insulation material for your home — fiberglass, cellulose (recycled paper), or foam.
- Attic ventilation: Proper attic ventilation helps prevent heat buildup during summer months and allows warm, moisture-filled air to escape during cool months. We partner with experienced ventilation contractors to install attic ventilation as needed with attic insulation projects.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much insulation does my attic need?
The answer is a simple formula: How many square feet is your attic, and what R-value do you need? We can provide a quick estimate with a phone consultation — call (800) 955-1976.
Do I have to remove attic insulation before installing new insulation?
It depends. In some cases, you can add new attic insulation on top of existing insulation, essentially boosting your home’s thermal envelope. However, you may have to remove existing attic insulation if it’s damaged or mold is present or if the material isn’t suitable for keeping in place when adding new insulation.
Does attic insulation soundproof my home?
While insulating your attic won’t completely soundproof your home, it does provide sound-dampening qualities to reduce in-home noise from traffic, construction, or loud neighbors.
Can you put too much insulation in your attic?
Many DIY attic insulation attempts result in too much insulation. You could be obstructing attic vents and fans, reducing airflow, and preventing moisture removal in your attic. To avoid over-insulating your attic, it’s best to consult a professional installer.
