As with any home improvement professional, you want to work with your insulation contractor to manage expectations, understand the entire process, and eliminate any misunderstandings of needs that must be met during an insulation installation. All of this can be managed by communicating effectively with your insulation contractors. Here are three questions you should always ask before the contractors begin their job.
- What type of insulation will I need for my home? This is a bit of a way to test your insulation contractors’ knowledge and experience. An experienced and knowledgeable contractor should be able to assess your home and its insulation needs to determine the exact type of insulation that would work best for your home and just how much you will need.
- How much will it cost? Insulation contractors should be very upfront with the costs. Good contractors will recommend the best possible insulation for your home rather than the cheapest or most expensive while still getting you the best deal. You should also ask about any possible warranties.
- What other services do you provide? It’s also important to ask about the other services that your insulation contractors can offer you. You’ll often find that they will offer weatherization, air sealing, insulation maintenance, and insulation replacement in addition to their installation services.
Asking these questions before insulation contractors begin the job in your home can help you to understand more about their process as well as developing a level of trust with the contractors. You can give us a call if you would like to learn more about our work as insulation contractors.
