5 Tips for Choosing the Right Insulation Company
1. Choose a Company That Listens
Company representatives should be asking questions and listening carefully to understand the short and long-term goals you have for your home or business. This will also help them assess the scope of the work needed, the ideal solution, and will allow them to provide recommendations and quotes with greater accuracy.
2. Choose a Company That Has Proper Industry Licenses and Insurance
Don’t be afraid to ask a company for information on the licenses, certifications and insurance it holds. These can indicate a higher degree of industry aptitude as well as manufacturer-specific knowledge on products and installation methods. Employees can also receive special types of training and certifications. You should only work with insured installation companies to safeguard yourself from employee accidents and damages to your home or business during installation.
3. Choose a Company That Has a Good Reputation
Listen to what other customers have said about their experience with each company, its representatives, and the project that was completed. Were they friendly, clean, professional, etc.? Was the project done on time? Was the quality of the installation up to standard? Also consider the products and manufacturers that each company uses – are they working with reputable, quality products that will last?
4. Choose a Company That Sees The Big Picture
Insulation and home efficiency combine many factors (home design, HVAC systems, insulation materials, etc.), and therefore should be thought of in a whole-home approach. If a company asks good questions (Tip #1) they should be able to see the big picture and articulate what work is needed to get the result you want. Thorough home inspection and/or testing should allow a company insight into areas of concern.
5. Choose a Company That Will Respect You and Your Home
Company employees should be professional during the entire process. Choose a company that runs background checks and drug tests on employees. Although different types of installation require different methods and tools, pick a company that strives to make installation as efficient and non-disruptive as possible, and one that keeps your house or business clean after installation is complete.
