"Installation was accomplished quickly and professionaly. There was a mistake in billing as for for amount of attic space covered but the company rep quickly resolved the issue. Due" to medical limitations I have not climbed a ladder to check the job but at this time I am satisfied, I can already notice an improvement in heating and cooling the treated room. Thank you for your help.

"This is my experience. After you buy the deal, don't expect a call back and you probably won't get one, so take the initiative and call the provider after a couple of days" to discuss scheduling the appointment. make sure you remind them of the service (e.g. I bought 350sqft of blown in insulation deal on angie's list). If you fail to, the first person to come to your house will come probably unprepared i.e. they drive different trucks based on whether you need fiber blow insulation, duct cleaning, etc. In my case, he came and told me they'll have to return because they did not have the correct truck. They could not make the second appointment as someone had called in sick. So they rescheduled. The third time around a supervisor was sent to my house and he only came to verify the square footage! he told me someone will call me back to setup a date again and almost 6 days later, I received the call back. Finally, the appointment date came and they showed up 30 minutes early and were in and out in under 30 minutes. However, as I said, they required me to reconfirm the deal and that it was already pre-paid by printing out the angies list invoice. I was not impressed that they kept reminding me that they were "loosing money on the deal" on angies list and was getting concerned they were not going to honor it. I understood that they were loosing money as the price was lower than buying a bag of insulation alone! So yes, I understood, but it wasn't really nice for each one to repeat that over, an
again on each visit or phone call. Overall, they delivered and I appreciate that. So for that' I give them high A grade. But I give them C grade for communications.

inspected our whole crawl space and reported its condition comprehensively. His measurements turned out to be very accurate. Although he seemed to have a good" bit of work, he got to our job within the time he had projected.
is very personable and knowledgeable, and was able to give me excellent advice on crawl space and drainage issues that I didn't know about. His team has been together for a number of years. They completed all the work in one day. They laid out everything from under the house, and took away all the junk we didn't want to keep. His foreman crawled under the house with me to help me see all that had been done and answer my questions. They even gave me disposable coveralls to use in crawling under the house.

I'm the office manager for a pharmacy facility that suffered damaged insulation from a leaking skylight during a severe storm. The result was some hanging insulation, but also a mildew smell that several staff complained about - so I was eager to get it fixed quickly and professionally.
I went on Angie's List and contacted the top 3 providers for insulation repair (filtered by reviews) in addition to the original contractor who put in the insulation when the building was built - out of all four, only
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came and inspected our damaged insulation promptly and provided a quote within a day.
The original contractor never responded to my calls - and I called about 3 times throughout the week following the storm.
I was actually surprised how disappointing the other Angie's List picks were - the top one felt it was OK to quote me over the phone without visiting our site, basing his estimate entirely off photos; when I asked about all the things
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
explained to me it was clear this other provider's quote was going to be very short. Even disregarding this, I needed a written quote for the insurance adjuster and this "top" provider didn't send one, even after being asked twice. The second provider on the Angie's List results didn't manage to send a written quote until a week later, blaming technical issues. Compared to

, who had it in my inbox the same day he inspected the building, these other contractors definitely come up short.
The actual job was done quickly and professionally.

came out personally because he recognized we are a secure facility, and wanted to supervise the job. I was also present to help move aside counters and shelving for the scissor lift, and stayed throughout the entire job.

and his worker draped the work areas closest to the the skylight with plastic, and
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
brought extra masks for our staff to use if anyone felt uncomfortable with the insulation dust in the air. I didn't use one, and I was closest to the work area, but some staff ended up asking for masks. At that point I opened up a door, placed a fan by it and left that going for the rest of the day - I haven't had any complaints or concerns brought to me since (I also feel fine).

himself stood below the insulation job the entire time, and he didn't have a

.
The job was finished within about 2 hours by one worker who clearly is an expert. Afterward,
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
made sure to sweep the areas clear and took all the old, damp insulation away. When everything was done, my co-worker and I inspected the work and he told me, "Yeah, I would definitely hire them again."
I couldn't be happier with the results - I just wish I didn't waste so much time trying to get other quotes! Thankfully I won't be looking around next time - for either my home or my job!

Never in my life have I encountered a company so bush-league.

I had issues with MassSave cancelling my appointment on the day-of that they were to come. I never even got a call to
let me know they were cancelling. They just no-showed and I wasted a vacation day. Fast forward a few weeks, I come across
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
at a faire. They bragged about how people who had terrible situations with MassSave turn to them
and have such a great experience. They went on about how they have the highest satisfactory rate. Reluctantly, I signed up for an assessment; after all I am looking for insulation to be done. I figured, it could not be worse than my experience with MassSave. Well, I was wrong,
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
is worse.
I own a two-family duplex and needed to have both sides done at the same time. I had this all set up in person to be done on 10/21/14; both units. A week after setting up the appointment I get a call: both units were not booked the same day and I would have to be home at two different times on two different weeks in order to have this done. There is absolutely no reason
to have to take time off twice for this. I call back and tell them to go pound sand. No way am I taking two vacation days for an energy audit. They messed up the scheduling and wanted me to deal with it.
I get a call back from
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
asking me if I would opt back in and keep my appointment if they could re-arrange schedules to give me the double block. Again, reluctantly, I agree. Basically, what went on here is
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
called the person who took my scheduled block to begin with and cancelled/asked them to switch days/times. Clearly, a business strategy they feel is appropriate…..
They got the other person to switch days or cancel all together, I am not sure.
Today is October 20th and they are supposed to come tomorrow October 21st. I just got a voicemail from them
cancelling all together. The day before the appointment they let me know! My boss is on International Travel and I cannot retract my Vacation Day. Yet again, these energy assessment companies provide amazingly horrible customer service. Yet again, these supposed “money saving” opportunities actually takes money away from me in the long run, without a service ever being done.
I called back to get some sort of answers.
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
picked up. I explained the whole history of events leading up to this very moment. How we were promised XYZ and instead got ABC. How we have been harassed multiple times over
inadequate scheduling on their end. He put me on hold and transferred me to

Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was okay to deal with, he just wasn’t educated/trained enough to handle what was going on.
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
on the other hand was absurdly rude. Any sense of
customer service does not exist with
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, or anyone at
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He said we would have to change the date or not have it done at all. When I told him we didn’t have the ability to switch the date due to our prearrangement, he said “oh well, we will remove you” and hung up promptly. He was irritated that we were not accommodating them.
A completely classless operation they have running over there. I hope that no one ever opts into their service without looking them up first!

The primary work crew of
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, Zeke, and
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
that was lead by
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
always showed up early and were ready to work. They paid attention to details and worked in a professional manner. Toward the end of the project more workers, of the same ilk, were assigned to the project since old insulation removing took longer than expected to avoid mishaps in the attic and since it had to be bagged before being removed from the attic.
Early indications show that the increased insulation is paying off since the upper unit furnace doesn't come on during the night even on the recent 32 degree night. We set the thermostat to 72 degrees to insure the house is warm at bedtime and set it back to 68 degrees and it takes about 6 - 7 hours before the temperature drops to the level where the furnace starts up.
Hoping to see lower heating bill in the winter!!!

and his crew showed up promptly within the expected time range. They started the setup needed to complete the project right upon arrival.
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came in and had a few tests he had to run on our heating system before he started and once that was completed they started taking off the siding and drilling for the holes where the cellulose will be blown into. He also communicated to us beforehand any concerns he had as far as removing the siding especially where it was a cool fall morning that there could be some cracking. He said they would be very careful taking it off and they were. Not one piece was broken or damaged.
Throughout the day they worked diligently and was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. They did a very good job of keeping the work area clean as they worked. They also worked around all of my small bushes to ensure they didn't get stepped on or damaged during the work. He also gave me some knowledge of air leaks and the negative effect they have on utilities. I couldn't believe the statistics of what one 1/2" hole does to your energy efficiency. He said small holes add up fast and before you know it you left the equivalent of one window being open all winter long.
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
said we are going to notice better heat retention and noise reduction from outside. The project was completed in one day and before you know it they were packed up and off they went. They did such a good job keeping the work areas clean you couldn't even tell they were there!
I am so happy with the work that was completed and cant wait to have them back again for more of my upcoming insulating projects.

It went very well! They were punctual, very friendly but professional at the same time. They worked at steady pace but did not rush.

gave us tips on a couple things we could do on our own and told us of every structural problem he found under the siding. He even straightened up the wavy mess of siding on the side of the house.

came to our home the day we placed a phone call to his company. This individual is a real gentleman with a very professional demeanor and a great listener, which is so very important I believe to homeowners. He intently listened to what we wanted to do with a back porch area to make it more weather-friendly and energy efficient, since it was always very cold in the winter time and extremely hot in the summer time. He recommended replacing the old windows with a brand of window called Polaris, which is a low-E energy window. We decided that we wanted to decrease the space of the windows in the room, i.e., two windows on two sides became one window, and three windows on one side became a two-sided casement window.

, the owner's son, as well as the two of his crew,
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
, were also very pleasant to deal with. They tried very hard to keep our home neat and clean. We are very conscious about tidiness and that was very important for us. When the job was done, we inspected their work and only had a few issues that we wanted fixed, which we graciously agreed to do. One of the wooden frames around the windows had a nick and
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came back the next day to replace the wood around the window. His reply to me, "That's not a problem. We'll gladly take care of that." I also asked
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to make sure that there wasn't a lot of nails and pieces of aluminum in the shrubbery and garden around the circumference of our home due to the fact our pet cats (2) hang out in the gardens and sun themselves and I was afraid they were going to get injured by the debris.
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
gladly went around and tried to find as many pieces of debris possible to please me in this regard. For which I thanked him. We had a few issues with the screens' that came with the casement windows which

&
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
wholeheartedly agreed to get replaced for us. They told us not to worry, we have a lifetime warranty with these windows, we should be very pleased and if we should ever have a problem, to please call them and they would come out, review the problem and take care of it.

came today with the two new screens and it was only then that he asked for final payment. Unbelievable, right? Every one seems to want to have their money right away before everything meets the customers' standards. Just one more thing: Although I really liked the work crew, I did have an issue with their arrival times for the two days they were at our home. Please ask them to give you a reliable estimate of when they're going to arrive at your home the day they're going to start their job. The first day they came we were told they would be there at 8:30 and they showed up at 10 am; the second day,
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me he would be at our home at 8:30 and arrived at 9:30. He explained that he had to pick up some material for the job. I would not have had a problem if he was going to arrive at 10 am and/or 9:30 but I did get kind of anxious about when and if they were coming due to the fact that we have had issues with other companies that were supposed to show up on a certain day and never did.

and his crew of staff and subs did a great job and were a pleasure to work with. The price was the lowest bid but the quality and service were excellent. This was a job to renovate a kitchen for a home our church provides for the pastor and the timing was challenging because we wanted the main work completed while the family was away for an extended period.
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
kept the project on schedule (technically, it ran one week behind by the end but this was because significant problems were uncovered when the old floor was removed; if you adjust for the time to address these issues, the project ran on schedule). Because this was a gut remodel with new lighting and plumbing service locations, and switching from baseboard heat to a toekick in the island, there were a lot of details and subs to coordinate. In addition, the centering of the window over the kitchen sink and fitting the cabinets perfectly (uppers and
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
) so that everything lined up perfectly was a fiddly job. The window was installed while the walls were down to the studs, yet when everything else was installed, the centering was precise to within 1/8" (in other words, perfect), and the cabinets, upper and lower, all lined up perfectly with the window and were centered/symmetrical around the window as well. Through all of this
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was a pleasure to deal with, professional, flexible, and clearly very experienced and knowledgeable. He also installed the bay window in such a way that the countertop ran behind the sink up to the window instead of a windowsill, and the levels lined up perfectly for a very attractive and seamless look. I have seen this online but I'm not sure that all contractors know how to do it well.
I was impressed that, when we had to ask for the pocket door to be reframed so that a family member who uses a walker could get through the opening with more ease, the re-work was done without complaint or impact to the schedule. In the same way, when there was a misunderstanding about which trim was specified, he had his team pull some trim and do it over again, no charge, and no bad feeling. Very professional.
I tell my friends that you can have all the paperwork and boilerplate in the world (and because I was coordinating this project as a volunteer for my church, I had a detailed contract, scope of work, etc.), but there is no substitute for good old-fashioned pride in workmanship and customer service, and
Portsmouth Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
has both of these qualities. Even more impressive, I first met him 7 years ago when he did some work on my own house, and all of his staff are the same people. I think it says a lot about him that he's kept the same same team for 7 years and this gives me a lot of confidence in using him again.
