If you need to have insulation installed, upgraded, or replaced, you will need the help of a qualified insulation contractor to get the job done. Unfortunately, not every contractor has the right skills or the right experience to deliver the high-quality results you are looking for, so it’s important to do your research on each candidate before you decide who to hire.
Our team at Polk County Insulation has extensive experience in the insulation industry, and in this article, we will go over a few red flags to avoid when choosing an insulation contractor.
- Limited Options- One red flag you are likely to run into when searching for insulation professionals is a lack of options—in other words, contractors who only offer one or two types of insulation. In contrast, our team offers a wide variety of insulation options to help you find the ideal fit for your needs.
- Lack of Documentation- When interviewing insulation contractors, you should always ask to see their professional licensing documents and proof of insurance—if they can’t provide these documents or are reluctant to do so, that’s a red flag, and you should look elsewhere. Reputable contractors will always be willing to show you their qualifications.
- Unprofessional Attitude- This last point can be a little harder to pin down, but if an insulation contractor strikes you as unprofessional, you shouldn’t hire them. A contractor who takes professionalism seriously will always answer your questions courteously, show up on time, and generally treat you with respect.
