Most Important Qualities to Look for In an Insulation Company

Most Important Qualities to Look for In an Insulation CompanyIf you are looking for an insulation company to upgrade your home’s energy efficiency, there are certainly a number of choices in every area. Though you may think that one insulation company is just like any other, this is not true. As in any industry, there are good insulation companies and bad. This makes the decision process a bit more difficult for you, but it is far from impossible. By making sure that an insulation company has the following qualities, you can have peace of mind when it comes to making the right choice for your home. Here are some tips below.

Look for Insurance and Licensing

One of the most important qualities to look for in an insulation company is that they have insurance and are licensed in your state. Why is this important? First of all, you don’t want to be held responsible for any accident on your property. If they are not insured and one of their employees is hurt on the job at your home, you could be liable for that. It is also a good idea to choose a licensed contractor if applicable as you can be confident they will know what they are doing.

Look for a Solid Reputation

Another quality to look for in an insulation company is that they have a solid reputation. The best way to do this is to look at their accreditations as well as their affiliations. In this case, they should be accredited by the Insulation Contractors Association of America. In addition to this, look for an A+ rating through the Better Business Bureau and high praise on sites like Angie’s List.

Look for Excellent Customer Service

It is also very important that you look for an insulation company that has excellent customer service skills. One way to find out is to read reviews about the company online. If most of the reviews are positive, you can usually count on them having great customer service. Another thing to do is to reach out to the company yourself. When you call them, for example, you can easily gauge if they put their customer service first, or not. If they seem rushed, uninterested in speaking with you or unwilling to fully answer your questions, you may want to choose another company.

Look for All of the Above

These are just a few of the things you should look for when looking for an insulation company. However, if the company you choose has these traits, you can be fairly confident that you will have an excellent experience. To work with a quality insulation company, contact USI online for a free quote.
