While a simple, straightforward insulation job might be within your ability, there are benefits to hiring a professional insulation installer rather than doing the job yourself.:
It is a good idea to make a list of important questions to ask an insulation installation professional before hiring or contracting them to do a job. Make copies of your list so that you can ask several contractors the same questions and compare them before getting estimates from at least three companies.
When you have narrowed down your potential insulation installer, ask for a consultation and estimate. This is your chance to see how comfortable you will be with having them in your home.
Some companies will do an energy audit to give a clear picture of your home’s insulation flaws. If there are big differences between two different companies’ audit results then it is time to get a third opinion.
Ask if they have done a similar job and what that was like. Ask if there are things you should expect or watch for.
Ask if they give a warranty on their work and what it covers.
Ask how they handle quality control.
Ask to see their contractor’s license and look it up to make sure it is still valid and that the qualifications match what they will do.
Ask about financial arrangements, lien waivers, warranties, and other guarantees of satisfaction. Make your budget constraints clear.
Ask how they handle the worksite. Will your family need to stay out of an area? Will equipment be left at your home? How will they keep dust and debris out of your living area if they need to do demolition to install the insulation? Who cleans up at the end of the day?
Ask if the person you are speaking with face-to-face will be there every day during the job’s timeline. Ask for contact information in case any issue comes up. Ask who has the insurance information if there is an injury on the crew.
Estimates should be detailed, specifying the type and R-factor of insulation being used, timelines, cleanup of the job site at the end of the day, at the end of the job, and any action required on your part. Permits, inspections, etc. need to be included. Ventilation and vapor barriers must be specified or that insulation will be part of a moisture problem in the future.
Make sure there is a definite timeline for the work to be done. Starting dates and estimated ending dates are good. What happens if there is a delay? Will they be working every day until the job is done?
Once the job is completed, check that the insulation you were promised is installed correctly and in the proper amounts. Only then should you get a receipt that verifies the contract is fulfilled.
Insulation isn’t something you see once it is installed but it makes a huge difference in your energy bills and the value of your home. Because of its importance, the insulation industry has high standards for installers.
