Choosing the Best Insulation Contractors
So, how do you choose the right insulation company?
Do your research –good research is vital when it comes to finding the best insulation company. Looking on the Internet is a start – be sure to check out Insulation Contractors Association of America (ICAA) – but your research should go beyond that. Ask friends. Ask neighbors. You can even ask your utility companies for their picks of the top insulation companies.
Once you find an insulation company…it’s time for more research. And don’t hesitate to ask questions!
Do the insulation contractors offer a wide variety of products? Top insulation companies install more than just one type of insulation.Offering only one material is extremely limiting, as a particular type of insulation may be suitable for one area of your home but not for another. For instance, radiant barrier insulation is ideal for attics but doesn’t make as much sense for walls.
Eastern installs many different types of insulation, including:
- Spray foam
- Radiant barrier
Do the insulation contractors offer free assessments? When looking for the top insulation companies in your area, ask about free home insulation assessments. Most reputable insulation contractors provide free consultations. If you find a company that doesn’t, it doesn’t necessarily mean they will do a bad job insulating your home, but it’s something to keep in mind!
Eastern Contractor Services offers free home insulation assessments, and so do many of our branches.
Do the insulation contractors have good resources? A good insulation company wants to inform you and help you learn more about maximizing your home’s energy efficiency. Top insulation companies usually have some sort of resource that can help you learn more about insulation, whether it’s a informational website, blog, exceptional customer service center, etc.
Is the insulation company certified and insured? Top insulation companies are certified and insured – no ifs, ands or buts. You can check Insulation Contractors Association of America (ICAA), but always make sure you ask the insulation company if they are certified and insured before they begin any work in your home. If something goes wrong during the project and the insulation contractor is not insured, you could be in trouble!
Eastern Contractor Services and our branches are ICAA-certified and fully insured.
With the recent damage done along the Jersey Shore there have been many NEW contractors coming into the area claiming to be capable of installing insulation.
BEWARE! Anybody can stuff fiberglass into the underside of a floor BUT in order to insulate correctly it takes a trained expert. Pieces must be precisely cut to fit inconsistent framing. It must be carefully fit around plumbing and HVAC lines.
If hard to reach areas or difficult areas are skipped or missed the rest of the insulation becomes useless. When it comes to spray foam- unqualified and unprofessional companies can put your home and lives at risk. Our spray foam technicians actually manufacture the foam on site. The machinery settings, application and safety measures must be exact every time. It takes a lot of practice and training to become a professional insulator. Don’t trust your home and your family’s health to just anybody. Hire a professional like Eastern to ensure your home is in good hands.
