5 Reasons to Hire a Professional for Spray Foam Insulation
Insulating your home with spray foam insulation may seem like a job you can do yourself to save a few dollars, but don't be hasty about the project. While you can technically rent the equipment and do it yourself, you may end up regretting your decision. Hiring a professional to get the job done comes with advantages you may not have considered. Consider these five reasons to hire a professional instead.
A professional with experience is worth the added cost of hiring a contractor. They know exactly what needs to be done and knows how to do it. Their experience equips them to avoid mistakes you may not even consider. Because they most likely have dealt with several issues in the past, they won't need to waste time considering the best alternatives. Look for a professional with a track record of successful work.
Like experience, professionals have developed the expertise to handle the job professionally and efficiently. They have the knowledge needed to get the job done, even if your home poses unique problems like drafty attics or unusual construction. They also know how to run equipment efficiently (and know what equipment is needed), are experts at curtailing unnecessary messes and can get the job done quickly without sacrificing quality.
Professionals know how to choose or recommend brands of insulation that are just right for your situation and can monitor and assess the installation so that it meets all safety and code requirements. They use their experience and expertise to do a quality job that is sure to leave you satisfied. Because they are insured and guarantee their work, you never need to worry about an inferior job.
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. Because old insulation must be removed before the spray foam is applied, knowing how to handle old insulation is important. Special handling is required to remove insulation when mold, mildew or asbestos is present. Leaving it to the professionals will give you peace of mind and keep your family safe, too.
#5. Improved Energy Efficiency
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 a professional to install your spray foam insulation will improve your home's energy efficiency.
