There are many benefits to adding spray foam insulation to your home – especially if you live in the greater Grand Rapids area and have to deal with brutally cold winters each year. Of course, that spray foam insulation is only going to help keep your home warm if it is installed correctly. So how do you find the right contractor for the job? There are three specific points that you should be looking for when you start to wade through your options.
The first thing you should look for in a contractor is a professional approach to their business. Your contractor should be licensed, experienced, and well-respected in the area. There are plenty of people out there who will tell you they can complete a spray foam job, but many of them don’t actually have the background necessary to do the job right. Completing basic research on each company you consider will make it easy to weed out the less-desirable options.
It is important to note that ‘fair pricing’ does not necessarily mean the lowest price. You might have a contractor offer you a great price on your spray foam project, only to later find that the project has been completed incorrectly. For each bid that you receive, ask for a detailed breakdown of the costs associated with the project. As with anything else in life, a bid that seems too good to be true is probably just that.
How long will it take to complete the spray foam installation in your home? This should be one of the first questions you ask, as the timeline for this kind of job is important – especially as the weather gets colder and colder. Not only do you need to know how long the job will take once it’s started, but you should also ask when the contractor will be able to begin work on the project.
