It’s easy to imagine how insulation might be installed in a new home. After all, when the walls are incomplete, you can fill them with insulation and seal it away under your drywall!

WMGB Home Improvement is here to tell you that it’s very possible to add insulation into existing walls! Our trained experts know the ins and outs of installing all kinds of insulation in your Holland, Grand Rapids, or Wyoming, MI home.
But first things first—how do you know if and when you need new insulation? The team at WMGB is here to answer all your questions and help you get started.
Signs That Your Home Needs New Insulation Services
Even though you can’t see the insulation in your home’s walls (at least we hope you can’t!), there are some key indicators that your insulation might be insufficient or in poor condition, including:
- Steadily-increasing energy bills
- Warm or cold spots, or inconsistent temperatures, in your home
- Cold floors
- Ice dams
- Frozen pipes
- Pests in your walls
How WMGB Installs Insulation in Existing Walls
With professional training, it is minimally invasive to add insulation to an existing wall in your home. There’s no need to remove drywall or create a big dusty mess!
To start your home insulation project, WMGB’s trained installers will drill small, strategically-placed holes in parts of your walls to ensure that they’ll be able to add insulation in every nook and cranny for maximum efficiency.
Next, our installers will use special equipment to blow in either cellulose or fiberglass insulation. Cellulose and fiberglass blown-in insulation are very similar in their texture and benefits. Both varieties are considered to be the best insulation for walls and can be blown into both interior and exterior walls.
Once the wall insulation installation is complete, our technicians will carefully fill the installation holes back in and patch them so you’ll never know they were there.
