How to choose an insulation contractor
Don’t let the process of hiring an insulation contractor become overwhelming. Here are some tips to help ensure you’re making the right choice:
- Check their experience. It’s important to know your contractor has experience in residential insulation. In today’s economy, there are many one-man operations that don’t have the experience to properly install your type of project. Check references and work history to be certain you’re choosing a qualified contractor.
- Building science savvy. A good insulation contractor will have a deep knowledge of building science. They will be able to speak clearly about your home’s overall energy performance and answer questions about topics like air sealing, mechanical ventilation, indoor air quality and more.
- Insured and licensed. It goes without saying that an insulation contractor should hold the proper insurance and licensing to work on your home. If you have any doubt, ask.
- Customer-focused. It’s never too early to receive great service. A professional contractor will return your calls in a timely fashion, answer your questions and fully explain your project estimate.
