    We had a date set for them to come up and give us an estimate.  I was called first thing that morning informing me that the person who was scheduled to do our estimate was out sick and they asked if they could reschedule for later that same day.  That was no problem - I was glad that that they were still able to accommodate us that same day.  The gentleman came out - asked me what my concerns were and took a look at our current situation - he said that he would email me a proposal in a few days.  He explained to me some of the problems that he saw as well as how they would address some of the concerns that I had.
    The proposal arrived right on time.  It was a little bit more than I had planned on spending, but they were proposing to do a fair amount more work that I had initially asked for.  After reviewing the proposal, I figured it was worth it and I gave them the go-ahead.
    We scheduled a date a few weeks out (this was more due to my schedule, than to theirs).  A crew of five showed up right on time and they quickly went to work.  They were all very polite and friendly.  They basically covered the entire upstairs hall (where the attic access was) in plastic to protect the carpet and furniture.  They gave me a few updates throughout the day and the entire process took approximately six hours.  During their lunch break, they gave me a chance to climb up and take a peek and how the work was coming and they explained what they had been doing and what was left to be done.
    When the job was done - the explained in great detail everything that the had completed.  They had taken photos of everything that they did - so that I could see the work that was done back in the far corners, where I would have a tough time getting to.
    They also very thoroughly cleaned up after themselves - the upstairs hall and staircase were cleaner when they left than when they arrived.
    Since then we can really tell the difference - the upstairs it noticeably warmer - even during the polar vortex cold snaps that we've been having.  We've had to partially close the heating vents upstairs to keep it from getting too warm.  
    We are very pleased with the work they did and highly recommend them.

    The home energy audit was on time as scheduled, but is not part of Weatherization Services (although I scheduled it through them).  The energy audit is actually performed by a third party state-contracted employee, which I think is an excellent idea as there is not a financial interest with his audit.  The breakdown is when I scheduled for Fred to go over things with me so I could clarify what I wanted done.  I made the appointment with Josie and even confirmed via email.  The day Fred was scheduled to come over, no one arrived.  I called Weatherization Services (it was a Saturday) and no one picked up.  I left a message for Fred, which was returned a few hours later.  Fred said he assumed the appointment had been cancelled, despite the fact I emailed him saying I would see him Saturday two days before.  Fred did eventually show up that afternoon.
    Going over the quote, there were items on the there that weren't applicable such as sealing the sill boxes (I was having them all spray foamed, which acts as a thermal break making sealing unnecessary) and sealing my chimney (my chimney is located entirely outside of the insulated structure).  I mentioned these to Fred and he agreed they were not needed.
    When I scheduled the work, I spoke to Josie and made sure she emailed me a confirmation for the work date.  The workers arrived a little late, but nothing significant and proceeded to work hard all day.  They were friendly and pretty clean.  Insulation is a dirty business but they did their best to seal off the areas.  Initially, they didn't have enough spray foam for the basement and had to call for more at the end of the day [more on this below].  They were also not overly gentle with their ladders on my painted gutters - they scraped paint off quiet a few areas banging the ladders around.  They also left a big yellow smear of what I believe to be glue on my white house when filling one of the drop soffits with insulation, but I was able to paint over it without issue.
    After they installed the roof vents; however, I noticed on windy days the new vents were creating a backdraft on my bathroom exhaust fans causing the dampers to clack and bang with each wind gust.  I looked at the vents they installed.  They were low quality plastic roof vents with large openings.  Being west-facing, and Milwaukee being a windy area, I told them I wanted a lower profile quality steel vent to try and mitigate the backdraft issue.  Fred said he had never had this issue before with their vents and would ask the owner how to proceed.  In the end, I ended up ordering the steel vents I wanted ($80.00 cost to me) and Weatherization Services switched out their low-quality vents for my high-quality vents for an extra $75.00.
    At this time, they also had to re-spray foam all the basement sill boxes.  I measured the depth and in most areas it was less than 1" when the minimum contract coverage was suppose to be 2".  I suspect they were trying to spread out the foam as much as possible to reduce usage.  Weatherization Services did correct this with the re-spraying, although some areas are still a little shallow, but this is most likely due to limited access with the spray gun to these tight locations.
    Overall, Weatherization Services does a quality job at a good price, but be sure to request quality roof vents (plastic vents should never be put on roof) and ensure proper insulation coverage.  Communication is poor and I had to email/call multiple times to get a response.  If you are willing to stay on top them with frequent emails and calls, then things should go okay, although this should not be necessary.

    The removal and installation was "top notch". I have an Engineering backround, so attention to detail is vital.
    I received 3 estimates and Watry's estimate was the least expensive. That is usually a sign, that steps are going to be skipped or shortcuts will be taken during the job process. I encountered the complete opposite. The detail and skill of installation
    by the 3 man crew was impeccable. It was obvious to me that the installers were comfortable and experienced in working with Hardi Plank siding. I was very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Watry Homes if needed. My wife loves the "new home".

    Fred K came to my home and we went through my energy audit (from another company).  It appears that I am better off than I thought.  I really enjoyed his professionalism and his attention to details.  I had some questions and he provided answers that I could understand (I am not in the building trades).  Fred informed me that one of the things I wanted to have done -sealing the basement- would require a power vented water heater to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning issues.  Thank you for this!  I will reconsider this in the future when I replace my water heater with a power vented one or safer unit.
    I highly recommend this company and Fred.  AND  you the reviewer should consider having an energy audit performed to see where insulation will help to reduce your energy costs = money savings!  This company performs these as well.

    American Builders did a great job, from rough framing to electrical to drywall to finish carpentry and painting. The crew was very polite and respectful of our house. Our brand new basement looks great. We would definitely use them again.

    S & E Insulation Inc
    Overall B+ to A-. From the time I contacted S&E to project finish was about 2 weeks. There was a cancellation that allowed the job to be completed earlier than I thought. Crew was polite and cleaned up after themselves. I wasn't home when the work happened and called Steve to report a part of the basement was not done. He was out the next day to do the work. All work was done in 1 day! I was a bit surprised that in the unfinished part of the basement the crew had pulled all of the furniture, etc away from the wall but did not put it back. However in the finished part of the basement you couldn't even tell they had been in there as each ceiling tile was back in place. Given the choice between the two sides of the basement, I was glad the finished part was back together. Price was higher than estimate as the 2 exhaust fans for the bathrooms were not on the estimate.
