Even if you have spent a significant amount of money on high-quality insulation materials, if improperly installed, you will still face the problem of drafts and the loss of heat or cooling.  To be sure the job is completed correctly, you need to choose a good insulation installation company.  Here are some things to be aware of.

Licence and Insurance

Most reliable contractors will be licensed for the work they will perform.  Equally important is that they have insurance.  This should include liability coverage for any damage that might occur in the process of installing your insulation but also sufficient workers’ compensation insurance for the company’s employees.  Without the workers’ compensation coverage, you could be responsible for medical costs for a laborer injured on your property during the job.  If you are uncertain about the amount of coverage a contractor should carry, contact your own insurance agent.

Experience Level

There are contractors who do a variety of jobs, including woodwork and construction.  However, be sure that the insulation company you select has sufficient experience working with insulation.  Experienced insulation installers will have worked on a fair number of projects that included complex processes or personalized for the needs of the home.  They will also have the proper tools to complete the job, including protective equipment for the workforce and barriers for your house.


Reputation is a critical element.  Ask around at work, friends, and neighbors to see if they have used any insulation installers and to offer an opinion of the workmanship.  The contractor will offer references as well as testimonials on the website, but you will expect them to be glowing.  Check online reviews, social media or neighborhood sharing apps to see if there are any comments, good or bad.  Read about their skills, the product they offer, and customer service.

As you move through the interview process, you should be offered a written estimate for the project.  This should include materials, labor, and a timeline for the completion of the project.  He or she should also be able to tell you an approximate start date.  There should be a phone number that you can call if you have additional questions.  You should expect to work with someone who is professional yet polite and knowledgeable. 


Warranties and guarantees come in two types.  Those from the manufacturer and from the contractor.  Those from the manufacturer should be standard from one potential contractor to another.  However, carefully study what is promised by each company you contact.
