Garland Insulating has experience in a wide range of products for use in Multi-Family applications. Our multi family insulation services also incorporate a wide scope of projects including apartments, condominiums, town homes, senior living, student housing, and “high density” apartments. Over the years we’ve worked with a number of respected construction companies including Crimson Building Company, Weber Group, Martines Palmeiro Construction, and Sueba Construction. Our expertise and dedication to quality installs has led to steady growth in the number and scale of our multi family projects. From 2 million in sales in 2014, to 6 million in 2015, and 10 million in 2016. We are looking forward to further growth in the future.
We provide insulation, fire stopping/rated wall assemblies, joint sealants and air/vapor barrier services for general contractors and builders focused on multi family housing construction. Garland Insulating is in compliance with the 2012 & 2015 International Energy Codes and can assist in the smooth transition to these stricter requirements.
At all four of our locations throughout Texas, the goal is Grade 1 insulations, the highest rating an insulation installation can receive during a building inspection. No matter the type of insulation, we make sure the insulation fills cavities without compressions, gaps, voids, or misalignments. Everything will be on par with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Some of Our Latest Multi Family Projects Include:

Want to give your fiberglass insulation a boost? Consider ThermaCoustic Industries TC-417 and Monoglass spray applied thermal and acoustical treatments for fiberglass insulation. Garland Insulating recommends this product for use in parking garages, warehouses and various other industrial uses. Fiberglass is often a superior alternative other blown in options. Spray applied fiberglass can be used in new roof construction, or as retrofit to an existing sound, watertight roof assembly.
You might also want to consider liquid applied air barrier products such as Wall Guardian FW-100-A and spray polyurethane foam products like HeatLok Soy 200. As an ABAA accredited self-adhered and fluid-applied associate, we are capable of managing any size project while maintaining a high standard of quality and safety.
More about Wall Guardian FW-100-A
Test results for this product showed air leakage rating that not only passes the ASTM E2357 Standard, it is 100 times below the allowed air leakage permitted by the ABAA (.04 CFM/ft.2). This product is one of the best in its class, moreover, the assembly passed with only a 60-mil wet application of the FW-100. This is significantly thinner than the application in similar fluid-applied vapor permeable air barrier assemblies that have passed this test. The thinner application of this highly-engineered air barrier results in one of the lowest installed-cost air barrier systems in the USA. Low-install costs can lead to huge savings to the building owner while achieving the “Best by Test” performance.
More About HeatLok Soy 200
Demilec’s HeatLok Soy 200 closed cell foam qualifies as a class 2 vapor retarder, a water resistive barrier according to ASTM E-331 and an air barrier, and is certified by the ABAA and Greenguard for children and schools. These qualities combined with the fact that HeatLok Soy has an aged R-value of 7.4 @ 1″ make it the most effective and versatile product available for institutional, industrial and commercial structures. Closed cell spray foam is a great alternative to rigid foam board in commercial applications where air barriers are required. This products creates a monolithic, seamless air, thermal and vapor barrier in one, which provides guaranteed performance while often reducing operating costs.
