What can I Expect from a Consult/Estimate?
We first elaborate on the goal to be achieved with all parties concerned. including contractors, home owners and landlords etc. After determining the service(s) needed, a thorough examination of the job site is taken to make note of any specifics along with measurements.
For example; if you’re looking to reduce heat loss in your home, the recommended service in most scenarios would be an insulation top up in the attic. From there, an inspection is done throughout the attic to take any measurements and note any specifics (depth of existing insulation, signs of wildlife, mold etc.) after the inspection you’ll immediately know your current R-value, the square footage of the attic as well as any other details you may not have known.
What is the Standard Order of Operations?
From the arrival of our crew, protection is placed where necessary by drop-sheets and plastic. It is important to note that (while protected) a window or door may be used as an access for any attic work to be completed. No job is complete until a thorough cleanup is performed by the crew.
By the time we’re ready to leave, your home will be as clean is it was prior to our arrival!
