How do I know that you are the best contractor for me?

How much does it cost to insulate a house?

The cost of home insulation depends on a number of factors such as the size and age of the house, existing insulation and the specific area that needs insulation. To get a clear idea of how much insulation will cost for your home, we recommend scheduling a free in-home consultation with our professionals.

What is the building envelope or shell?

The building envelope, also called the “shell,” includes everything that separates your home from the outside. Key components of the building envelope include walls, ceiling, doors, and windows. The building envelope is responsible for a large portion of home’s temperature and moisture control. When our team at The Hayes Company evaluates your home envelope, we look to see if the proper temperature and moisture barriers are present and doing their job, as well as if they can be improved to increase the energy efficiency and overall comfort of your home.

What if I can’t afford to do everything recommended?

We want you to get the best energy-saving services on whatever budget works for you. We will prioritize our recommendations so you know which improvements need to be done first and which can wait. In order to further help you save money, we will also show you what improvements you can do yourself and the best way to do them. If you need extra financial assistance, our professionals can point you towards several low-interest loans available. You can also check the Metropolitan Energy Center for details. We accept a wide range of different payment options including check, cash, and all major credit cards.

How do I determine if this work is really going to save me money?

You can track the energy-saving benefits through your local power company. You may be eligible for tax credits as well.
