When you choose to renew or install insulation in your home’s attic, you should know how crucial it is that you choose the right insulation contractor.
Insulation can raise the comfort levels in your home while lowering your utility bills, but choosing a contractor that has the experience and tools to get the job done properly can be a project in itself! A wrong choice will leave you with gaps in your insulation, the wrong insulation, or inadequate r-values. Here is a list of the things you need to consider to get the right person for the job.
When you are getting any work on your home, you want to make sure the contractor you use is properly and fully licensed. Most professional contractors that install insulation carry and maintain a builder’s license, but in the state of Michigan, they can also have an insulation specific license.
Most homeowners know that a contractor should have liability insurance. This is the insurance that will cover any damage done to the home during the project. It is not hard to find contractors with liability insurance, but most homeowners are unaware of how vital worker’s compensation insurance is. If a contractor does not carry this type of insurance and one of their crew members suffers an injury on your property, then you may be liable for the medical expenses!
Warranties & Guarantees
Any company that truly knows their product and how to install it will offer a warranty to cover the work. A company like Pro Home Improvement stands behind their work and offers a 25-year no settling guarantee on installation we install in your home. We even include yearly inspection to ensure that our quality standards are maintained.
An experienced insulation contractor will not only know what materials are best for the project, but they will also have the proper tools and any necessary protective equipment required for installation. For example, an installer that is not familiar with spray foam may be unaware of toxic fumes created during installation, putting not only themselves at risk but possibly your family and pets as well.

A quality contractor will have a quality reputation. This means that they work hard to make sure their customers are happy and pride themselves on great customer service as well as a quality product. Visit sites that allow people to leave reviews and see what past customers have to say about their experience and how the company has responded to negative reactions.
An insulation contractor that is not local to you may be unaware of specific standards needed for your home’s insulation project. There can be city mandated codes that are different from those issued statewide. Failure to adhere to these codes can result in costly repairs and remodeling.
