Whether you are looking to save energy or extend the life of your HVAC system, spray foam insulation is a great option. Once you’ve decided to install spray foam insulation in your home or business, you’ll be faced with a wide selection of different brands and contractors. While many people understand the benefits of spray foam insulation, fewer understand the reasons for hiring a spray foam insulation expert. At Garland Insulating, we know a thing or two when it comes to properly insulating your home or business, after all we’ve been helping home and business-owners more efficiently insulate their spaces for over seventy years. Here are the top four reasons to hire a certified spray foam insulation expert, like the ones at Garland Insulating:
A professional contractor with expertise is worth the added cost of hiring a contractor. They know exactly what needs to be done and know how to do it well. Their experience equips them to avoid mistakes that may be overlooked by a less discerning eye. They have dealt with unique problems, like drafty attics or unusual construction, in the past and will be able to present the best alternatives for your project. Experienced teams also know how to run equipment efficiently, avoid unnecessary messes, and can get the job done quickly without sacrificing quality.
By doing it yourself, or trusting an inexperienced contractor, you risk installing the insulation incorrectly, which can lead to you spending more money on higher energy bills or hiring a professional to redo the job. A spray foam insulation expert not only will use their extensive training to do a quality job, but they will also use quality insulation products, that only a certified professional can obtain. Higher quality jobs also mean less mess, which is extremely common with DIY spray foam kits. When you turn to the professional insulation experts at Garland Insulating, you can rest assured that the insulation you are receiving is high quality and will do its job effectively.
Safety is always a concern with any major home improvement project and hiring a professional goes a long way to guarantee the job is done safely and doesn’t pose a risk to your family or property. Before the spray foam can even be installed, it’s important to safely remove old insulation that might contain asbestos or mold, and it’s imperative for this to be handled by a professional. Spray foam insulation experts have the equipment and the know-how to remove old insulation properly, as well as how to mix and install spray foam insulation safely.
Properly applied insulation improves the energy efficiency of your home and makes your family feel more comfortable. Professionals know how to spray the foam insulation without leaving gaps or cracks that can cause cold drafts in winter or let your cool air leak outside in the summer. Because they know how much to apply and where your home needs it most, hiring an expert to install your spray foam insulation will improve your home’s energy efficiency.
