The DeVere Team is Going to the Dogs!

We are so proud to share this story!

Our team member, Tim Smith, owns Jake, a Black and Tan Coonhound. Tim adopted Jake from a dog rescue in Phoenix, MD. Tim noticed Jake’s nose for tracking when he did it for fun a few times after obedience classes.

Today, Jake and Tim volunteer for Dogs Finding Dogs. Dogs Finding Dogs is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of highly trained handlers and dogs that can track and find a lost pet.

Jake has success tracking both dogs and cats, and is known for his endurance and stamina. While Jake can do all types of tracks, his breed is built for rural tracks where the animal being searched has covered a lot of ground.

Hybrid System: HY-Fi in Baltimore, MD

Homeowners and builders today are installing high-performing hybrid insulation systems. These systems have the air sealing properties of spray foam at a lower cost than full foam. Until now, most hybrid systems are thought of as spray foam finished with fiberglass.

The innovative HY-Fi hybrid insulation system from Fi-Foil is changing that. And both contractors and homeowners are thrilled with the results.

The HY-Fi hybrid insulation system provides a very cost-effective approach to creating high R-value walls.  When used in combination with traditional insulation, such as fiberglass batts or spray foam, the HY-Fi hybrid insulation system creates a superior insulating system.

Here are some benefits of using HY-Fi on your next project:

  • HY-Fi enhances the performance of the building envelope by maximizing open air spaces in the wall cavity.
  • HY-Fi reflects heat away from the cavity and adds high-performing R-value to the wall. This additional R-value can reduce the amount of spray foam insulation needed to achieve the desired R-Value, reducing overall project cost.
  • HY-Fi can help you achieve a higher R-value in small wall spaces. It’s an ideal solution in areas with strict building codes.
  • HY-Fi is more efficient to install than fiberglass, meaning your job can be installed in less time than before.
  • The air cavity that is created between the spray foam and HY-Fi is a builder’s dream! Now contractors and homeowners have the ability to run additional cables (audio, video, etc) behind finished walls without having to drill through full spray foam.

Police Supervisors Association Golf Tournament

On June 6th the team at DeVere Insulation sponsored and participated in the seventh annual Anne Arundel County Police Supervisors Association Golf Tournament.

The tournament benefits the International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local 799, representing the Police Sergeants, who are the first line supervisors, of the Anne Arundel County Police Department in Anne Arundel County. The Association participates in a number of community outreach programs. This golf outing is one several fundraising events held throughout the year to provide support for these program. In the past, the Association has supported Special Olympics, Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, various youth athletic programs, Concerns of Police Survivors and other charity organizations.

Like a fish out of water…

Here’s one for the record books! A customer called needing insulation for a new home they were building. We were excited to learn this house was located on Little Island in the Magothy River in Pasadena, MD. There is no road access to this island – but we didn’t let that stop us! We welcomed the challenge to find a way to get our truck and crew out to the job site. As you’ll see by the photo to the left, we ferried our truck and crew over to the island to complete the job. What a fun opportunity for our team!

Have a tricky insulation problem? Give us a call, we’d love to help you solve it.
