Four Things Every Homeowner Should Know About Insulation Contractors

For every homeowner to understand what they're paying for when it comes to home insulation services, you have to conduct adequate research. With that being said, here are four things every homeowner should know about insulation contractors.

Insulation Types and R-Values

When getting an insulation contractor like Attic Man, the first thing to consider is the different types of insulation available and their corresponding R-values. When choosing which type of insulation is best suited to your home's needs, it's important to know these two factors so you can choose the right type for your home.

The Relationship between Insulation Contractors and Home Inspectors

This ties into number one because you must be hiring an insulation contractor who will try and sell you on using their specific brand of insulation, but rather work with another company promoting a superior product. Although this might not always be the case, it's best to find someone willing to show you all your options without being biased towards one or two types of insulation.

Density and Blowing Machine Efficiency

The next thing to consider is the density of the insulation being installed in your home. The most commonly used type of insulation is fiberglass, which comes in several different densities. It's also worth noting that many companies will use a device known as a blowing machine to place this insulation within your walls. Unfortunately, not all machines are created equal. Some are more efficient, which needs to be considered when shopping around for an insulation contractor.

Warranties/Guarantees Offered with Installation

It's one thing to promise that you're going to give someone great service, but it means nothing if you don't back up your word with something. To this point, most insulation companies offer warranties for their installation. If you're looking for the best possible insulation service, find a company that offers both written and lifetime guarantees for their product.

Generally, it would help if you always did a little research before hiring a contractor. Knowing who they are and their reputation is crucial for your safety as a homeowner. Asking the right questions will ensure that you find someone with proper insulation knowledge and skills and ensure that they have your best interests at heart.
