When you’re looking for an Austin spray foam contractor for your project (or any contractor, for that matter) it can be difficult. Do an online search for service providers in your area, and you’ll likely see tens or even hundreds of thousands of results. Even if a company has a website, that doesn’t mean much these days given that it isn’t that hard to build one yourself. Maybe a friend or co-worker has recommended a contractor they used, but does that mean he/she will be a good fit for your project? Here’s what you need to know to make the selection process easier.
First of all, spray foam insulation is unlike traditional materials used to insulate a home and involves mixing materials to form a foam that is sprayed in and expands upon application. This fact alone helps you understand why it’s important to choose a knowledgeable, experienced contractor for the job.
Hiring a contractor who’s licensed and insured is also important. Companies that are licensed and insured are more likely to use the highest quality products and have the proper machinery to ensure the best possible application. Licensed contractors undergo comprehensive training – and insurance is critical in the event something goes wrong unexpectedly. When you hire our team of spray foam insulation professionals, you can enjoy peace of mind.
You probably wouldn’t hire a “shade tree” mechanic to work on your car, and you certainly don’t want someone with very little skill or experience taking on a project involving your biggest investment, your home!
If you do search online for a reputable contractor, be sure to check out whether the company is licensed and insured, whether they have “authentic” reviews from past customers (you can check Home Advisor, Facebook pages, Google reviews, etc.) and whether their contact information is readily available. Once you find a handful of contractors you want to contact, ask these questions:
- Are you licensed and insured?
- How much/what kind of training do your installers have?
- Should a problem arise, who can I follow up with?
You want a contractor you can trust explicitly to handle your insulation project. Also keep in mind that you get what you pay for, so going the cheapest route isn’t the best idea – especially when it involves your home.
