With over 45 years of experience in the insulation industry, our team at 31-W Insulation definitely knows a thing or two about what it takes to be a great insulation contractor. Adding more insulation to your home or replacing the insulation that you have is a job that should be left to trained professionals, and our team wants to help you choose the right company for the job. In this article, we’ll go over some of the hallmarks of great insulation contractors so that you can make the best choice for your needs.
- Credentials- All reputable insulation contractors will gladly provide proof of their training and certification, either upfront or upon request. If you ask for this documentation and the company representative hesitates to provide it, that’s a clear sign that you should take your business elsewhere. This principle also holds true for the company’s insurance coverage, not just their professional licensing.
- Experience- While the right certification and licensing are necessary qualifications for all insulation contractors, they are not by themselves enough to prove that the contractor is right for the job. To make that determination, you should also look into how much experience each candidate has and what kinds of projects they have worked on–in insulation, just as in all other fields, practice makes perfect, so make sure your contractor has had plenty of experience.
- Knowledge- A third hallmark of great insulation contractors is thorough knowledge of all types of insulation and the principles of how insulation works. Our team has extensive knowledge of all major types of insulation, and we can use that knowledge to recommend the best products to use for your particular application.
