Spray foam insulation is one of the top performing types of insulation available today and can provide superior protection for your home. However, in order to get its full range of benefits, like improved indoor air quality and more home comfort, spray foam insulation must be installed correctly. There are many things that can go wrong during installation, which is why it’s important to work with an experienced, qualified contractor.

Qualities That Make a High-Performance Insulation Company 

With several spray foam insulation companies to choose from in Central Virginia, it can be hard to determine which one will best help you achieve your efficiency, comfort, and indoor health goals. Here are a few things to look for in an installer that can help you choose the right insulation company in Waynesboro, Lexington, and the surrounding areas.

Building Science Expertise

An insulation contractor with a strong background in building science will be able to address the specific needs of your home to find a reliable & long-lasting solution.

At Responsible House, we’re certified by the Spray Polyurethane Foam Association (SPFA) as a Master Installer and Project Manager. 

Experience with Spray Foam

Installing spray foam insulation is a complicated process that doesn’t leave much room for error. Hiring an inexperienced contractor can impact the effectiveness of your insulation upgrades at best, or even lead to permanent damage at worst. 

At Responsible House, we follow industry best practices for installing spray foam insulation safely and efficiently. Our team always follows strict guidelines, like proper ventilation, and only uses high-quality installation equipment and materials on every job.

Fully Licensed & Insured

Sometimes things can go wrong even with the best insulation contractor, which is why it’s important to work with a company that is licensed to install spray foam and insured in the event of an accident. 

We’ve been in the industry for decades at Responsible House and have always stayed up to date on licensing, insurance, and other regulations for installing spray foam insulation in Central Virginia. 

Knowledge of the Local Climate

Not all spray foam insulation is the same and your local climate plays a role in determining which option will best suit your home’s needs. Moisture accumulation and temperature fluctuations are just a few of the many considerations that go into choosing the right type of spray foam insulation.

Responsible House has been operating in Central Virginia since 1995. Not only are we a locally owned and operated business, but we’re also Virginia natives with an extensive background in home building.

Positive Reviews & Reputation

Knowing that an insulation company has a history of making happy clients will not only help you feel confident in your decision but will also give you an idea of what to expect when working with them. 

We’ve built a reputation over the past 30+ years for delivering science-based results and providing excellent customer satisfaction in Charlottesville and throughout Central Virginia. But don’t take our word for it, hear it from our happy clients
