What to expect from home insulation services when redoing your home’s insulation

If you have insulation issues, you’re going to notice a utility bill that seems to be creeping higher and higher each month or with a certain draftiness in particular areas of your home. You’re going to want to have the insulation redone in your home and it’s recommended that you call in a professional for home insulation services. It’s not uncommon to not know what to expect when you’re having insulation installed, so our team at St. Louis Insulation has put together a short guide to help.

Schedule a consultation

The first thing you need to do is call an insulation installation company to come by your home. They’ll take a thorough look at your home to find where you might be having issues. While this is going on, be sure to let them know places that you’ve noticed problems and what you would like to accomplish with the installation. You’re also going to have a chance to ask questions about the installation and what you need to do to help it go smoothly.


Once the contractor has walked through your home, they can provide you with an estimate. Most experienced contractors are great at being able to identify potential trouble areas and accounting for them with your job. This makes for an accurate cost estimate that is likely to be close to the final cost. Although, you should keep in mind that the cost they give you is an estimate, it’s not an exact cost of what your insulation will be.


Unlike some home improvement projects, getting insulation redone is often quick and easy. The actual installation time will depend on what kind of insulation you’re getting and how many areas of your home need to be done. Most insulation jobs can be done in a single day but you might need to give certain types 24 hours to dry before coming back into your home because of the fumes they release.


After the installation is complete, we’ll take you through your home to show you exactly what we’ve done. Our experts will point out previous trouble areas that have been resolved as well as answer any questions you might have about potential issues in the future and how long the update will last. A final walk-through is also a great way to ensure that the team leader inspects the work of the rest of the crew to make sure everything was completed according to our standard.

Guarantee of service

A common part of getting a home improvement project done is a guarantee of service. Any company that performs an installation for you can provide you with a guarantee, but they can’t always back it up. Small companies will offer lip service by saying they have a guarantee of service but you might not ever hear back from them if there’s an issue.

You should feel confident in the ability of the company you hire to back up their service guarantee. With St. Louis Insulation, this is what you get. We take great pride in what we do and will provide you with a guarantee that we stand by.
