A selection of 90 homeowner reviews:
“ARC Insulation was wonderful and clean as a whistle. They did attic insulation. They removed the old and installed the blown-in kind. They're great. They earned an A—they get the best marks. They said they'd be there at a certain time, and they were there quickly and got the job done. They were on top of it. I'd recommend them any day of the week.”
“They're fabulous. They reinsulated our house that had been built in the 70s. They did a top-notch job of explaining what needed to be done, why it needed to be done, and why it would help. They're very professional and scientific about their approach. Their follow-up was great. I'd give them an A.”
“I was impressed with the initial visit. They added blown-in insulation in the attic. They seemed professional, and the work was good and quick. Overall, I'd give ARC Insulation an A.”
“They were just wonderful, and they were clean as a whistle. They came in the home and did attic insulation. They removed the old and installed the blow-in kind. They're great. They earned an A. They get the best marks. They said they'd be there at a certain time, and they were there quickly and got the job done. One of the high points was how clean they were and how everything was in my whole home—it was a big job. They had to go on carpet and two bedrooms to take stuff out, and everything was clean as a whistle. They were on top of it. I'd recommend them any day of the week.”
“I'd give Arc Insulation an absolute A++. They were excellent.”
“It's been about a year and a half, but they're fabulous. They re-insulated our house that had been built in the 70's. They did a top-notch job of explaining what needed to be done, why it needed to be done, why it would help, and they're very professional and scientific about their approach. Their follow-up was great. I'd give them an A for their customer service, punctuality, cleanliness, and expertise.”
“It was quite good. They did excellent work for me. They get an A+ from me.”
“They did attic and basement insulation and added new stuff to the garage to heat the floor that was above it. They were excellent and very professional. They were done in a day and just basically in and out—very unobtrusive. It was very successful in terms of the rooms—they were cold and winter and warm in summer, and now they've evened out, so they're wonderful. I'd give them an A.”
“I was impressed with the initial visit and the quote. They were adding blown-in insulation in the attic. They seemed professional, and the work was good and quick. Overall, I'd give Arc Insulation an A.”
“We had a terrific experience working with them. They did blown-in insulation, and I think they did some other stuff, cellulose maybe. The guy that we worked with was great and explained everything. He was really very ethical. I just liked him a lot. They did the job right on time. Everything was done quickly, and it was all good. I would give them an A rating. I would highly recommend them.”
“They've done work for me. They did spray-foam insulation for me. All the way from the ownership down to the installers were very professional. They did what they said they were going to do, and they were phenomenal. It was one of the best experiences I had with the whole building. I'd grade them as an A.”
“My experience with Arc Insulation was perfect. I had to have mold removal done, so they came in, treated it, and reinsulated our home. They were professional, on time, prompt, and kind—easy to work with. I'd give them an A+.”
“They basically did my entire house. I liked that Jay was very facilitative. He was understanding to the fact that I had a budget and I couldn't afford to do everything that he recommended, but once he made his recommendations and heard me out, he worked with me and tried to accommodate a solution that was in my budget but still got me the best result. I'd rate them as an A+. I've already recommended them.”
“They did our insulation. I guess they would be excellent. They did the job pretty well—A+.”
“Arc Insulation was excellent. I'd give them an A.”
“They did mold remediation for us and basically insulated the roof so the heat is more contained. Less electricity is used, and it's warmer inside. They were very good while we were discussing what we needed, what we didn't need, explaining everything to us, what they were doing, and why it was necessary—the best thing I liked about them. We were comfortable talking to them and asking them questions, and they were ready to explain everything to us. We had multiple meetings and negotiations and everything, and they were very patient with that. They did the job very well. I remember we had scheduled them on a certain date and then it started—I think it rained or something, so we had to postpone the whole thing. They worked around our schedule to fix the job, which was again a very good thing. I would definitely give them an A.”
“We didn't have any problems. It's OK. The house is warmer. They did a good job. They installed insulation in the attic. It's excellent, and I have no complaints about it—A+. ”
“Arc Insulation put some of that new paper stuff up there. I didn't go up there. It feels and looks good. They were very nice. I'll give them an A. They were really nice. They were neat, clean, and wonderful.”
“They did some insulation work in the attic. It was blown-in insulation. They did a fabulous job, they were neat, and we've had no problems. They're just really nice people. I'd give them an A.”
“They've done the cellulose, they've done bats, and they've also done blown-in. They were pretty prompt and professional. I like the way he set up before—the prep work, cleaning and everything. They're a company I've been using for over ten years. I'd definitely recommend. Their customer service was excellent.”
“They were absolutely great. They insulated my attic. They were very thorough, made sure everything was done right, and double checked it when they were done. I'd give Arc Insulation an A+.”
“They did the attic insulation work for me. I liked their customer service and attention to detail. I'd give them an A+ for everything.”
“They did it all, pretty much. They did spray-in and cellulose for me, and they did my cellulose blown-in insulation up in my attic after they consulted with me about what I'd had done previously. They came out, they told me about the latest and greatest chemicals and ways of dealing with the problems I was having, and they rectified all my problems. That's what I was looking for. I would use them again in my next house, but this house is done. I'd give them an A+.”
“Arc Insulation did blown-in insulation for me. I liked their timetable. They showed up on time, did everything they said as promised, and they completed on time. I'd grade them as an A+, and I will use them again. I'd say blown-in insulation is kind of hard on cleanliness because when you're blowing insulation into cavities in the house, you're blowing everything everywhere, so they were as clean as they could possibly be given the type of insulation installation they were doing. I have already recommended them.”
“They were just doing insulation work for me. I'd give Arc Insulation an A+.”
“Insulation work was all they were doing. I thought they were very thorough and careful. They covered the other surfaces so they wouldn't get sprayed with the insulation. They did a very good job, and it helped us finish our project on time, so I was happy. I would give them an A+. I've already recommended them and will do it again.”
“Arc Insulation was very knowledgeable of the product, and the installation was quick and painless. They were replacing old insulation. I'd give them an A+ overall.”
“They were doing insulation work. Everybody did a great job. For the overall experience, I'd rate them as an A+.”
“They put some cellulose into my basement. They did it quickly. I'd give them an A+. I'm very likely to recommend them.”
“Everything was good. Arc Insulation did cellulose and some spray-foam insulation for me. Everything was fine. They were nice and showed up on time. They did a fine job. It was a pretty small job. I'd give them an A+.”
“I definitely like the company. They installed insulation in my attic, and then they also came back and did the exhaust fan for my furnace, because there were birds getting in. I'm a chicken; I'm not getting up on my roof. He was personable, he came out, he took his time going through the house and showing me the different areas, and when I asked them to do an extra little something they did and didn't charge me for it. They're personable, and they did it quick. They checked up on me to make sure I was happy. They deserve an A+. I'd recommend them any time.”
“They did a nice job. I'd give them an A.”
“They did mold remediation for me. I liked that they were straightforward. They did the job they said they were going to do in the time they said they were going to do it. I'd give them an A.”
“The experience was great.”
“They were doing insulation work and some mold remediation. I don't even know what they did up there in the attic. I'd give them an A for the overall experience. I haven't even seen what they did up there. I assume it's good.”
“Everything was good.”
“They did insulation and a few door sweeps. They seemed to be good. For the overall experience, I'd give them an A.”
“Arc Insulation did a good job—a great job. I would give them a great review, because I barely even knew that it happened.”
“I hired Arc Insulation to insulate my garage, and they did a great job. They just did a good job. They came when they said they would, they got the job done, and it all went well. I did have a slight issue, but they came right back and fixed it right away, so I'd give them an A rating.”
“I had them insulate my crawlspace, which is underneath the length of my house. I'd give them an A.”
“They were prompt. My home had a water break when I was out of town, and they were trying to get things put back together. We got home and had help from my kids, and when we got through the concrete insulation, we contacted them because I was familiar with them. They were very prompt getting out there and recommending what had to be done. They got it done very quickly and professionally, so I was very happy with them. I'd give Arc Insulation an A.”
“They did really good work. I'd grade them as an A.”
“I had them add insulation in my attic about four or five years ago. It was quick, easy, and painless. They came out and blew in an additional six or eight inches of insulation over my attic. They cleaned up everything, left, and that was pretty much it. I'd give them an A. They definitely cleaned up after themselves. I'd imagine you have to have quite a bit of expertise to get up in an attic.”
“I had no complaints. They did some insulation. They insulated some rafters in the roof of a family room, did spray-foam insulation in the attic, and did the crawlspace of the family room. I'd give them an A, because I had no complaints.”
“I'd give Arc Insulation an A.”
“Through an energy conservation program through my gas company they re-insulated my attic and curtain walls. They did what they said, and they got it done quickly like they had anticipated. I'm a happy customer. It was an A.”
“They were good. They did the attic. I'd give them an A.”
“They were good—excellent. I'd rate them as an A.”
“They added insulation to an existing attic space. They came in and provided an estimate. They went through the house and based on the results made a recommendation. I took it to a contractor I knew and showed him what the recommendation was, and he said, 'If it was my house, I'd have it done.' I had the work done. The workers that came in were professional, and they did a good job of cleaning up after themselves. During the work, you really couldn't tell that they were here. I'd give them an A. I would use them again. I like the work that they did, and in addition to that, about the time the work was being completed, it was to show, 'Hey this is the work that was done, and this is the result of our work.' So you had a good idea of what was performed and how it improved the home.”
“They did roof and attic insulation for me. They seemed to be good, responsive, fine, and easy to reach. I'd used them before. I'd give Arc Insulation an A.”
