Apex Insulation Contractors Reviews

"Having finished my background research on crawlspace sealing we began soliciting estimates from local contractors. We worked with
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
over about a 9 month period. I initially requested an estimate which
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
provided, unfortunately I was not home at the time he came and he spoke with my wife. Once we'd had several estimates done my wife and I decide that on the basis of the impression
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
had made when he spoke with my wife about the project and the price he'd quoted that we wanted to proceed, but I asked for a return visit to discuss the details of the job.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came when agreed and spent about 40 minutes gong over all my questions regarding the work.

Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
both made some claims regarding the benefits of crawlspace sealing that some in the industry make, but which I could not find substantiated in independent research finding on the subject. It didn't matter because I understood that there is often a difference of opinion and I wasn't making my decision to proceed on the basis of any claims made. Sales folks are sales folks, so you need to be sure you understand what you are buying.

Once the work was scheduled it went smoothly. The installation/work crew arrived on time and proceeded as described. The work was done very well and all debris was completely removed. I could not ask for better quality of work.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
stopped by to inquire twice during the couple of days of work to see if we were pleased and to check on the job. The job was done and the inspections passed without any problem or issues.

About one month after the work was completed during a routine visit to service our HVAC system for the summer season our contractor commented that he was really impressed with the quality of the work done in sealing our crawlspace. He had previously recommended that we consider having it done due to the condensation he saw in the summer in the crawlspace. He did say that he thought the duct setting on the HVAC line that was done to send some conditioned air into the crawlspace was set a little too high a volume.

I called
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he said he thought the setting was correct, but that he would come and check it for us. He came the same day and after inspecting it confirmed that it was set a little too high and that he adjusted it to the correct volume. He apologized for the mistake and checked the ventilation fan (from the crawlspace to the exterior through the foundation) and the rest of the job while he was here to just be sure nothing else was forgotten or not 100% as it should be.

Using a remote hygrometer I installed I can see that sealing our crawlspace has lowered the humidity in the crawlspace by about 15 to 20% with some seasonal variation of course.

"Their installer
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed up on time as scheduled a couple days later. He did an awesome job, great attention to detail, very professional install. The owner
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
personally came out twice during the install, and suggested the solar fan be installed as the attic fan for
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
benefit and determined with a remote
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
solar was possible on the rear roof top side of our home, which made a lot of sense. I feel the owner and people really care about the green aspect of their products, and say welcome to the Family, which is very nice. They seem really interested in their customers saving energy and long term relationship, not just a quick sale. It took a total of 3.5 days, as they did very high quality work as well as quality of the solar fan (lifetime warranty), thermoshield appears to be of excellent quality as well in my opinion. Everyone was pleasant to work with. Thanks again.

"The experience was great!!!
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very thorough and knowledgeable and spent plenty of time answering all my questions. I would recommend
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to everyone. The inspection turned up more stuff than I ever thought possible. Luckily my duct work isn't too leaky and didn't need any major repair, but we did discover that my hot water heater was leaking Gas. My favorite part of the inspection was seeing the images from the Thermal Camera which identified all the areas where hot air was infiltrating my house this summer. Seeing this was eye opening, and was part of my decision to have a Radiant
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
installed in my attic. The Radiant
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
reflects all the heat from entering the attic and keeps it just a few degrees above the outside temperature. This has made a huge difference in my cooling upstairs as the duct work for my A/C is in the attic. Overall my Bills have Decreased as a result of having
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
do all these things to my home. My current average bills are literally half of what the previous owners of my home reported theirs to be. This is really going to add up over the long haul, and will surely be a Major Selling point for my home. don't hesitate to call
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and start saving on your bills and experience a more comfortable less drafty home now. You won't regret it!!

"This was our fourth project that we have used
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. We had used them on projects on our previous house that is a 1930s bungalow that we had recently sold to buy a new house in Apex, North
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. The new house had an attic area that we wanted to convert into an office for me, so we had our architect draw-up plans and then had
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, Inc bid on the job.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
of
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked with me to make sure that the project was done the way that we wanted it in a manner that worked for the existing structure. The project involved framing, drywall, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, flooring, insulation, painting and lighting. We were on a tighter than usual budget for this project, since we had just bought this new house, and
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked with use to keep costs down while creating a usable office space for me. The framing and electrical work went in smoothly without any trouble with the work being done quickly and professionally. There was a small amount of plumbing work required to remove and cap-off plumbing that was not going to be used in this project and that was done without any trouble.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
brought in a HVAC consultant to determine whether the existing HVAC system would be able to handle the extra load of the additional living space, and it was decided that a PTAC unit should be installed in the new area in order to handle the added load.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came up with an ingenious way of installing the unit without the unit being visible from anywhere outside of the house. An additional 220 volt power feed was required for the unit, and
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his electrician again came up with a smart and non-destructive means of running the new electrical line from the crawlspace all the way up to the attic. The area needed to be insulated, since it was unfinished, and
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
had his insulation team inspect the area and come up with an insulation plan for the project. The insulation has worked very well in both winter and summer. The temperature difference between that area that was left unfinished and the finished area is remarkable. Very good work. The drywall and painting were completed as expected on time and on budget without any surprises. When it came to the flooring that we would use,
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
suggested a cork flooring material. This was an insightful suggestion, since the area would be used as my office and to house a number of computer servers that I own. This flooring is stable and sturdy and provides a great working area. After a year of expansion and contraction during the summer and winter months, some of the drywall joints required repair, and
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
had the drywall team return to repair the issues at no cost. There have been no other issues and the office area continues to be a very convenient and useful addition to our home.

" A few months ago, I had a termite inspection performed by a reputable dealer. The termite inspector found no insects but said that my crawlspace was very damp and suggested that I get it checked out. Due to the very wet summer we have had this year, I was inclined to just let the matter go until the fall to see if the moisture abated. However, when I went underneath and checked, I could see where sections of the crawlspace did not have a vapor
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, droplets of condensation were falling from the air conditioning ducts, the subfloor insulation was very wet and soaked in some areas and the wood beams were damp. I began researching the internet and found that all of those conditions
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to mold, wood rot (requiring eventual replacement of the beams( and a reduction the effectiveness of the insulation. I then obtained 5 estimates from seemingly reputable businesses that dealt with excessive dampness in a crawlspace. To give you an idea of how damp my crawlspace was, the humidity level was around 70% and the dampness of the wood was above 50%. The quotes I received ranged from a low of $3,800 to a high of over $12,000.
Two of the low bidders said that the wet insulation was fine and just recommended to put in a 10 ml vapor
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
with a dehumidifier. One bidder recommended that the insulation be removed and replaced with a solid sheet insulation that went around the walls, a 10 ml vapor
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and a dehumidifier. The last two bidders recommended removal of the existing wet insulation, replacement with close foam insulation for the walls, a vapor
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and a dehumidifier. In reading a fair amount of material on the subject, it was imperative to me that the wet insulation be removed and opted to go with
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
for the reasons enumerated below:.
(1) The reputation of
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the President of
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, from the Angie's List reviews was very favorable. The only negative remarks involved failing to get back to a customer which I believe was an aberration for him. I reviewed the comments very carefully and found that his crawl space encapsulation system using "close foam" insulation coupled with a good dehumidifier and a 12 ml vapor seal was by far a better way to address my excess moisture problem than leaving the old insulation or using the sheet insulation on the walls.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
also provides an external monitor so that the homeowner can always tell what the temperature and humidity level is in the crawlspace.
(2)
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
provided a detailed explanation of the proposal in writing and gave me time to evaluate the proposal. Some of the other bidders provided very little information about the process. I was also given the opportunity to add/delete conditions in the contract. All of these changes (such as final payment subject to inspection approval) were agreed upon by
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
prior to the commencement of work.
(3) The price of $5700 was very competitive.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave me a $100 Angie's List Discount and a matching military discount.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
indicated that I could have used a major credit card but that he would have to charge me the fee that the credit card company charged him. The other contractors I interviewed did not say this though I suspect their prices may have been higher to cover that cost. This should be a consideration if an owner wants to use a credit card. I also did not discuss finance options with
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Some of the other contractors offered no-cost financing deals where you could make monthly payments without incurring any interest or fees if the amount owed was paid off in 3 years.
(4) The work was performed in around 3-4 days. Work was performed in an efficient and timely manner and the Peak subcontractors/contractors cleaned up after they were done.
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
personally came by each day to inspect and to do final checks on the work. For example, after the close foam insulation had been sprayed,
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
had the subcontractors come back and do some more work when he discovered a small area that needed a bit more insulation.
(5) The work was permitted and payment was subject to approval by the City of Apex on the electrical and insulation work meeting code. I thought this was very important for resale purposes. Some of the low bidders said that an inspection permit was not necessary if the cost were under $5,000 and seemed to think this was an unnecessary cost.
(6) The warranty for the work performed carries over to any subsequent owner of the property.
For these reasons, I would endorse using
Apex Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
for these types of moisture control issues in a crawlspace or basement.
