How to Choose the Best Insulation Contractor for the Job

You’ve been dealing with a house that’s drafty and chilly in the winter, and hot and uncomfortable in the summer. You’ve probably noticed that your utility bills keep going up rather than down, and maybe you’re seeing icicles more and more with each passing winter. You’ve known for a while that you need to consider insulation for your home, but how do you choose an insulation contractor that you can trust, and who will do the job right the first time? There are a few key points to consider when looking into hiring an insulation company.

Is the insulation contractor licensed and insured?
You’ll want to make sure the company you hire has a license to install insulation in New York and is insured per state regulations. Standard Insulating Co. is both licensed and insured to serve from Utica, NY to Ithaca, NY and all points north, south, east and west.

How experienced is the insulation contractor?
Choose a contractor who has been in business for a while. You’ll also want a contractor who understands and works with a number of different types of insulation, so that they can help you make the best choice for your home. Standard Insulating Co. has been in the insulation business for more than 80 years. They offer closed cell spray foam, open cell spray foam, “green” foam, blown-in fiberglass insulation and cellulose insulation.

Are the insulation contractor’s installers trained and certified?
Choose an insulation company that keeps its installers current on the latest technologies and products, and invests in their training. Standard Insulating is proud of their employees’ knowledge and advanced certifications.

Does the insulation company have a fleet of vehicles?
This may seem like an odd qualification, but it shows that the contractor will be able to complete your job in the event of vehicular or equipment breakdown. Standard Insulating is proud of their fleet of vehicles. Their large fleet of vehicles ensures that they’re able to serve residents from Utica, NY to Ithaca, NY easily, and in a timely fashion.

Does the insulation contractor have on-staff specialists?
A good insulation company will have specialists available who have a deep understanding of equipment, insulation types, home energy use and more. Standard Insulating Co. has specialists with extensive knowledge of building science, insulation product, home energy consumption, and construction.

Is the contractor online?
Insulation contractors who maintain an online presence and provide access to customer testimonials are automatically more credible than ones that might be difficult to learn more about or contact. Standard Insulating Co. has a robust website filled with helpful information for consumers, including a repository of customer testimonials.

When you follow these steps, you’re sure to find the right insulation contractor for you. And, if you decide that’s Standard Insulating Co., getting in touch with them is easy.
