IS ECOTELLIGENT HOMES THE RIGHT INSULATION CONTRACTOR FOR YOU?
There are two main variables to consider when selecting an insulation contractor to install spray foam insulation in your home: the type of insulation and the quality of the install.
We use a closed cell spray foam that is optimized for improvement projects in existing homes. Unlike some spray foams that require you to leave your home for at least 24 hours due to air quality issues from off-gassing, our spray foam insulation cures more quickly to minimize off-gassing, effectively reducing your time away from home.
Spray foam is a high-performance product and must be installed correctly for peak performance. Our trained, knowledgeable, and experienced staff of insulation installers will provide you with the highest quality install. Once more, our award-winning installs are confirmed with an industry leading Six Point Quality Assurance Check which includes thermal infrared imaging.
WHY START WITH AN ENERGY AUDIT?
Spray foam insulation can be a great solution for your Metro Detroit home; spray foam can, however, be a costly investment. Starting your home improvement project with a comprehensive home energy audit will not only confirm your money is spent in the right place, it will also confirm the health and safety of your home.
