Find the Right Insulation Contractor for Your Project

Whether you are building a new home or office or you are remodeling an existing one, knowing when to DIY and when to hire a professional is key. Some projects can be done, and done well, by following instructions or watching tutorials online. However, other tasks such as installing or retrofitting insulation can lead to major expenditures down the road with the slightest mistake. The risk is simply not worth the potential consequences of inefficient energy consumption and building damage.

Regardless, we want to help you make the best choice for your project. To ease the process, we’ve compiled a list of things to remember when you are on the hunt for a contractor.

Choosing the Right Insulation Contractor

Do Your Research

Some contractors specialize in specific installations while others prefer the “jack of all trades” approach. Researching the types of insulation that you are considering for your build beforehand can help you test out a contractor’s knowledge and investigate their expertise. Even if a contractor doesn’t work with a specific type of insulation, they should be able to tell you how it compares to their preferred type. A quality contractor should also be able to determine and explain how to best work with your building envelope— the physical separation between the outdoors and indoors.

Additional Tips:

Many installers offer lifetime warranties on their work. If anything is missed during the initial install or if a mistake was made, these contractors will fix the issue without further cost to you. A warranty also shows that a contractor is confident in the quality of their work and willing to own up to any mistakes or issues.

Vet and Compare Multiple Contractors

Don’t go with the first company you find. Instead, request estimates and consultations from various installers in your area. Research their companies, as well. Read over their websites and online reviews, and ask if they have any referrals from similar customers e.g. remodelers versus builders, attic insulation versus foundation, or rigid versus spray foam). It’s also a good idea to check in with the Better Business Bureau and see if any complaints have been filed or if they have a rating.

Additional Tips:

Websites like Angie’s List, Yelp, and Thumbtack can help you find contractors in your area to begin your comparisons.

Ask for Estimates in writing. Once you choose a contractor, continue to have all official quotes, estimates, and agreements this way— agreements such as total cost, proposed schedule, and how to handle any issues that come up in the install.

Verify That They Are Licensed and Insured

By law, a contractor must be licensed in the state they are performing work. You could end up footing an unexpected bill if they’re not. You also need to know that they are insured. While all quality professional insulators pride themselves on safety, accidents can and do happen; people can be hurt or property damaged. You don’t want to be taken advantage of or held liable.

Additional Tips:

Speaking of legal requirements for contractors, Home Insulation Rule 460 from the Federal Trade Commission requires the following:

  • Consumers receive fact sheets about installed insulation;
  • Customers receive a contract or receipt for the insulation install;
  • The receipt shows amount, coverage area, R-value, and thickness of insulation;
  • The receipt must be dated and signed by the installer; and
  • New home sellers must list the R-Value, thickness, and type, for each insulation type throughout the build on every sales contract.
