We have a side split house that needed both attics updated with more insulation. We picked insta insulation based on the reviews here. The guys that came were pleasant and efficient, taking less time than I was told it would take. However it could have been a better experience.
The house was getting a full of insulation dust everywhere. I pointed this out and was told don’t worry as they still had to vacuum and clean up. They should have taped off the small hallway to prevent the spread of dust. Cleanup was pathetic with only a quick vacuum of limited area. Dust and insulation on floors chairs etc left as is. They also did not bother to slide the screen back in the window they used to bring the hose in. They left the back gate propped open instead of closing it.
This company demands 40% payment up front. When the guys asked us to pay, it was for the full amount. Happens all the time they said and not their problem. Had to phone the office myself to get it cleared up. Excuse from billing staff was their system couldn’t handle the deposit??? Very unprofessional in my opinion.
Because of these complaints, the do not deserve a better review.
