winter suck...and the worst thing is the feeling of the cold coming in your home from unknown places! this was the problem in my mom house out in NJ. we were gonna seal our attic ourself till we found out some unwelcoming guests...we had to call the pros;i had the attic clean sanitized and sealed to prevent cold and any rodents from coming in. the technician came on time gave me an estimate, we agreed on a price and they finished it the same day like promised. so far it has been over 3 weeks and no issues no squirrels or any problem, and my mom is happy! what can be better then that....great company, great job done! professional and respectful!

He was great! He showed up on time, had the necessary tools and was able to do the inspection. He gave me information on a program through the Illuminating company where you have an energy audit done and the if you have certain work done to the house you can get rebates on the work. We had the energy audit done and have decided to hire
to insulate the house.

AWESOME OWNER, AWESOME WORKERS & AWESOME WORKMANSHIP. I cannot say enough about
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. What a descent guy who really knows what he's doing both in roofing and insulation. What caught my eye on his website was he is a Disabled American Vet. What made me go with him versus 5 other companies I talked to was his expertise and genuine passion for providing great service. I did my homework and talked to many companies but
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the one who gave me tips on what to look for and what to be cautious about regardless of who I used. He didn't bash other providers, I don't like when people do that, but just gave tips and things to be aware of spending quite a bit of time with me on the phone which he didn't have to do. So I went with
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
because I could tell how much passion and pride he had for his work. He was also incredibly patient when, due to family emergencies, I had to postpone the work on more than one occasion. His workers who came to do the work were incredibly polite, friendly, quick and very respectful of me and my home. They cleaned up completely after the job was done. I highly recommend

They were very nice to deal with on the phone. They came out the first time and the insulation was really uneven. Some areas were really deep and others were really shallow. My husband called them and complained. They were very responsive, came out a fixed it by adding more to low areas. My husband did all of the prep work in the attic the week prior so they didn't have to do anything in that regard. We're very satisfied. We would use them again.

I felt that my home was insufficiently or ineffectively insulated and wanted to investigate improving the attic insulation and adding insulation in the walls. I also wanted to see if anyone had a solution to getting insulation under the floor of garage converted to a master suite, where there was only about 14' clearance and the access to which was blocked by plumbing lines. I called three companies for estimates. One of them came out and looked and never got back to me. Of the other two, the work recommended by both for the attic was similar, but only
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
at
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
could offer a solution for the insulating under the master suite. Both
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the other company recommended making adding insulation in the walls only as a last resort if I felt the other efforts didn't make a significant enough change in efficiency. However,
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
did offer a way to apply foam in the walls by drilling small holes into the cavities from the outside, in the mortar between bricks that could then be cosmetically resealed, whereas the other company said it would have to be done from the inside with loose-fill through large holes, leaving significant drywall repair in the aftermath.
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
's estimate came in significantly below the other company, especially considering it included the master suite project that the other company said couldn't be done. Furthermore,
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
emailed me lots of helpful spec sheets and industry info to help me make an informed decision. I hired him for the job in the attic and crawlspace (including under the master suite), and accepted his advice to do nothing now in the walls. We prepared for the job by removing everything from the attic, an unfinished space accessed by pull-down stairs, where we had the usual family junk stored on some floor decking.
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
had a dumpster brought in, and after a couple of days of prep work he vacuumed out the old insulation from the attic. (The hoses were run through an exterior vent so weren't dragged through the living area of the house.) Then he began applying the spray foam insulation, during which he insisted that we be out of the house due to the fumes while he was actually spraying. We could return when he finished for the day. He rigged up a powerful exhaust fan which he left on and made the house safe to inhabit at night. He kept a large trailer parked here throughout the job containing his equipment. There was a one-week delay by his chemical supplier in getting the ignition
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
that was to be applied to the foam as a last step, so
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
switched up his planned order of the project and worked in the crawlspace during that time. His solution for the tight space under the master suite was to disconnect the plumbing and drain lines, cap them off and remove them so he could crawl into the space and apply spray under the floor. Remember, this was only 14" clearance...and
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a tall guy! Once he was done, he reconnected everything. The plumbing impact was limited to only one work day so it did not cause an unreasonable inconvenience to us. Finally, he got his ignition
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
chemicals and was able to finish in the attic. (Again, we had to vacate due to fumes during the work day.) The whole job took about 3 weeks.
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
did a lot of problem-solving on-the-fly during the project as peculiarities to our situation arose. For instance, he had to remove some roofing on the outside to get into a small area that was not accessible from this inside, and then replace the roofing. He also did most of the work on miserably hot days in an un-air-conditioned attic space. He made helpful suggestions for steps to include the next time we re-roof our house, which will be in the next 2 years. He cleaned up after himself every day, was friendly and polite, and kept us informed about his progress. The only B-grade I gave was on punctuality, which partly reflects the delay caused by his supplier (beyond his control), and partly reflects on the whole project taking longer than we originally expected, even accounting for the supplier problem. Stuff came up that nobody expected, and he dealt with it. My caveat to prospective customers is that
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a one-man operation, so he doesn't have helpers who could make the work go faster; on the other hand, he takes complete ownership of job quality. Delays are a fact of life in home improvement projects. The tradeoff in timing vs. quality (and price) was well worth it. I recommend
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
without reservation, and would hire him again.

had previously done work on our problematic gas fireplace and I had been very happy with their company. I trusted them. Now I know that I should have done my own research from the start. I believed that more insulation would be good for our 60 year old home and for the environment by requiring less energy to heat and cool our home.
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the person in charge of planning our job and
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and another one or 2 men did the work in fall of 2012.
This summer (2014) I went into the attic on a hot day to look for something and noticed that it was terribly hot.
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
than it had ever been in the 26 years that we have lived in the house. I got worried and started doing some research on line and keeping records of the temperatures inside and outside the attic. On the worst day it was 96 degrees outside and 130+ degrees inside my attic!! The thermometer does not
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
higher than 130 degrees. From my research on line I learned that a well vented attic will be from 15-20 degrees
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
than the outdoor temperature. The high temperatures waste energy, speed the deterioration of attic shingles and make the guarantee of the shingles
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
& void. In the winter the poor ventilation increases the risk of moisture and mold growth in the attic.
My husband and I spent much time researching the internet about attic ventilation and attic temperatures and the proper ways to preserve ventilation with the addition of insulation. We further investigated the layout of the new insulation in our attic and noticed that it was piled so high around the exterior edges where the roof slopes down to meet the exterior walls that it touched the underside of the roof thus interfering with proper ventilation. There are soffit vents all the way around our hip style roof that are supposed to let cooler air into the attic that then flows out the ridge vent at the top of the attic. I never wanted to learn so much about attics, roofs, shingles, soffits, baffles and insulation. I thought the company installing the ventilation would know and do the proper things.
(*additional note) Immediately after the job was completed in Sep of 2012 when they showed me the work they had done I noticed, what I later learned were baffles, installed on the underside of the roof. Eight didn't seem like very many in such a big attic space to I asked for more to be installed. They put in 8 more per my request. My thinking at the time was that twice the number 'the experts' planned for would surely be adequate. I didn't think more about the attic until I went up there on a hot day this summer.
I called the company four times over a couple of weeks. I spoke with
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
twice and
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
twice. They were always nice but had no answers or attempts to fix my problem. Initially I was willing to pay one of their staff to come and improve the situation in our attic but never got a call back. Then I sent a letter to
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
in the office with a copy to
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
who I presume is the owner of the company. Again I got no response!!!
I no longer have high regard for this company. I would NOT HIRE THEM for attic work again.
I have pictures from our attic that show the problem.

They were great. Informative, showed up on time, finished earlier than expected, were able to come out and give me a quote very quickly and had the job completed within a week from my first phone call.

I had 2 months of outrageously high heating bills this winter, not to mention ice dams building constantly. I learned the majority of the problem was heat escaping through the roof due to lack of insulation (I live in a very old home). Century advised me of what could be done (adding blown insulation) and fixed some venting issues, and I noticed a quick change in how often my furnace kicked on which meant I was saving money. I do notice it now in the summer as well, house gets cooler faster and stays cooler longer. I'm sure it has already paid itself off in energy savings - I noticed a drastic drop in my heating bill the following month after having the work done. They guys were neat (laid floor coverings even when I said they didn't need to) and vacuumed and cleaned up everything when they left. They were on time, did what they said they were going to do and were polite. Couldn't have asked for anything more. I also had shopped around price wise, and
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came in significantly lower than the others I talked to. Great service at a great price - highly recommend!

In a nutshell, everything went perfectly well - I only wished all my dealings with contractors went as well in terms of exceeding expectations. I had an energy assessment from the local utility (
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
), and they provided me with a list of contractors that they work with (they do a spot check on contractors afterwards to insure quality). I contacted four contractors on the list, and of the four, Dutch (the owner of
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
) provided the most comprehensive proposal (though two of the other contractors gave extremely useful information as well). With most of the other bids, I had to ask a number of questions and do my own research, but with
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, their proposal was extremely extensive and I only had to ask 2-3 clarification questions. In areas where contractors gave conflicting information in their proposal, I went back to
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
for advice, and
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
's bid met the bar. At face value,
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
's proposal was the most expensive, but, once I broke down the tasks by line item and made adjustments (eg -
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
included soffit work, whereas the other bids did not), they actually came in very competitive. What made the final decision for me was when an independent outsider gave
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
two thumbs up for extensive proposals, quality of work, and pride/ownership of the work done (they had worked on another project with
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and had the opportunity to observe their work first hand). I also checked with two local contractors to do the same work (not on the
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
list) - they came in lower price, but much less detailed, and gave me less confidence that they could do the job as well as
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. In regards to the actual work, Christian (the
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
person who did most of the work) was polite, clean, organized, professional, and did an outstanding job. His associate (
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
), who came on the last day, also did an outstanding job and they were very approachable with answering my questions and taking the time to be sure their work was done right. They did subcontract out the exterior soffit venting (to help with air flow circulation in the attic). I asked for bids from other roofers to be sure I was getting a good deal. The subcontractor roofer (Triple Pine Roofing from Gordonville) did an outstanding job, and cost less than the other roofer bids.
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked all day, and did an amazing amount of work in the hot summer heat. (I viewed it as an asset that
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked closely with a sub-contractor for the soffits - Dutch explained to them what needed to be done and made sure it was coordinated with the work his own people did). Bottom line - great proposal, great service, great people for
Oxford Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Two thumbs up.. .
