How to Choose an Insulation Contractor

An Insulation Contractor is a specialty contractor who installs thermal insulation. They may specialize in one type of insulation like cellulose or fiberglass, or they can choose to use multiple types. An insulation contractor works with heating, plumbing, and mechanical construction workers to insulate ducts, structures, and mechanical systems. They may also inspect buildings for proper insulation and repair existing insulation. They are a great option for homeowners experiencing drafty rooms, high energy bills, and fluctuating temperatures.

Which walls need insulation?

When choosing an insulation contractor, it is important to consider their experience. Ask how long they have been in business and how many insulation jobs they have completed. It is also important to understand how their business structure differs from other companies. Some companies have their own customer service, sales, and installation crews while others outsource these functions. This can cause issues with scheduling, communication, and the overall quality of work.

A good way to vet a contractor is by asking for referrals from friends and neighbors who have recently had work done on their homes. They can provide insight into how well the contractor stayed within their quoted timeline, how responsive they were to questions and concerns, and what the process was like having workers in their home.

It is also helpful to ask the contractor how they evaluate and select materials. For example, ask them to show you the bag labels for the insulation they plan to use and explain how they determine R-values (insulation thickness). You will also want to know if they require attic holes and gaps to be sealed before adding any new insulation.
