Customer Testimonials

Compliments of the Insider Page

"These good folks gave us the VIP treatment. We had attic, under-floor and wall space insulation done, and we are so glad. The crews worked hard and finished in only a day or two. Steve the owner came out and looked everything over; he directed his workers to texturize the wall openings so you can't tell there were any perforations made. They were so kind, even helped us with installing some roof vent screening before the attic was filled in. We would highly recommend!"
Susan J.

"We used SDI insulation company to install some blown in fiberglass fill in our attic, right on top of our existing 30 year old bat insulation.
Our rooms on the second floor were really hot during the summer -
I'd say around 90F. Now with the new installation its stays at a cool
70F no matter how hot it gets outside. SDI did an excellent job of installing the insulation - very fast and of high quality work!
I'd recommend them to anyone who wants a pro company to do their insulation job."

"We used SDI Insulation to insulate our home to make it more energy efficient. They used a spray foam insulation which only required cutting small holes in our sheetrock. No messy tear down of our sheetrock and the mess of mudding and taping a huge area.
Quick, convenient and professional."
Anastasia T.

Compliments of Diamond Certified
"Everything, getting the estimate, the way they did the job, the quality of their work, and the way they cleaned up the job site, I was very impressed. They were polite, professional, and on time. I was very happy. I have already referred them to several friends who wanted the same type of work done. In the past, I have had problems with other contractors. Now, I wouldn't want anyone to do the job except them."
Angelica K.

"They came when they said they would, they got the job done, and the price didn't change. They were also very clean. What more could you ask for?"
Brett B.

"Everything was great. It was a rental unit, and there haven't been any more complaints from the tenants."

Insulation Removal

Insulation Removal

When was the last time you cleaned your attic?
If you can’t answer that question that is the first warning sign that something may need to be done soon. Insulation removal requires the same detailed attention as adding new insulation.
When should you replace or add insulation? 
And why is it important?

Insulation removal is necessary when existing insulation has been damaged from entrance by rodents & other pests, through smoke from a home fire, or a roof leak that allows water to damage to the insulation. Insulation removal is also an option when doing a remodel an a home. 

SDI's Insulation Removal Process

When doing insulation removal, we use equipment specifically designed to contain the product, and collects the old insulation into a holding container outside the home. Insulation that has been removed does not infiltrate the home, which often can include contaminants that may have accumulated in the insulation. 
How Long does it take?
The length of time the insulation removal may take varies with the thickness and type of the product being removed. Usually, SDI estimates approximately 150 square feet an hour for 8-12 inches in depth.
