Have you ever found yourself in the position of needing to choose lower quality products or services, because your budget just didn’t allow for it? Sometimes, it’s necessary to do, but there are times when you just shouldn’t compromise on quality. One of those times is when you have decided to install foaming insulation, like Icynene spray foam insulation, in your home.
Why not just take the DIY route, or find a cheap contractor to handle it for you? Here are 4 reasons why you should choose to work with a licensed, qualified professional:
- Safety. To ensure the safety of homeowners and the spray foam insulation installers, each licensed Icynene contractor has been through a comprehensive training and licensing protocol to help them identify and correct any issues that arise during an installation, such as off-ratio foam.
- Thoroughness. When you’re installing foaming insulation on your own, or have a contractor you found on Craigslist doing the job, it can be easier than you think to make small mistakes that can cause a big headache. You might miss a few nooks and crannies during your application, or underestimate how much insulated foam is needed for adequate coverage, which can lessen the efficacy of the insulation you installed. In contrast, a licensed Icynene contractor thoroughly understands the necessity of insulating every spot to be applied with spray foam, and is trained to know how much spray foam is required for the job.
- Knowledge. How much time do you think a regular contractor will have spent studying all the information connected to spray foam installation? Unless it’s their sole area of expertise, the answer is probably not much time at all. There’s no question that if you’re trying to do it yourself, the answer is “even less time.” Online video tutorials will only teach you so much, and what happens if something goes wrong–who do you go to for support? An Icynene licensed contractor has been through an in-depth training program, and has access to a technical services support team any time they’re on a job.
- Understanding. Spray foam insulation doesn’t just come out of an aerosol can. The volume needed for insulating your home needs to be properly applied, which involves mixing the correct ratio of the components with specially calibrated machines. Does your contractor have the most up to date technology? If you’ve hired an Icynene contractor, you can rest assured they do.
