Insulation contractors often work with a specific type of insulation. There are four main types: rock wool, synthetic, fiberglass, and cellulose. A contractor may be qualified to install one type, a couple of types, or many types. Before working with a contractor, it is important that they are comfortable working with the type of insulation you need and that you know which kind you need, of course. There are also different places where insulation might be installed, including walls, ceilings, and attics. Therefore, it is also important that you find a contractor that is knowledgeable with where you need the insulation put in and what kind you need.
To choose the best contractor, you should make sure you know the type of insulation. Then, you should make sure the installer is insured and bonded, as well as qualified for the job, and that they can verify their bonding, licensure, and insurance coverage. Using a local insulation company or contractor is also often preferred. When getting bids and contracts from insulation contractors, make sure that they are all made in writing to make sure the job is done correctly and to avoid legal troubles. It is also suggested that you get at least three written bids. Each of which should contain an itemized list of material specifications, labor costs, a payment schedule, and a time frame for the project.
