“Garland Insulating did a really nice job. They put insulation throughout my whole home upstairs. Their customer service was great. The older gentleman was beautiful. I have no complaints. We'll find out if everything is working on my electric bill this next month, but I hope it does better. I'd give them an A.”

“No issues. It was in the attic. Everything is working up to my expectations. I can't see it because I don't go up in the attic. As long as my house doesn't burn down or anything, I'm good. Their customer service was 100 percent great. They get an A.”

“They came when they said they would. They did the job very quickly, neat, and then they left. It was the inside wall that got insulated. They came and they did my exterior walls. They did my ceiling. I would like to have more in that ceiling. I'm just not sure. Their overall customer service was good. I'd give the overall experience an excellent rating.”

“They do what they say and say what they do. It was a job site for me. Everything worked out to expectations, and everything's great now. I'd give them an A.”

The sales guy that came and talked to me, he was really thorough and followed up, and it was good. They were a few minutes early, which was great. I was having my bathroom remodeled at the same time and those were always late. The guys doing the insulation were early and I'm like, 'Gosh, that's a nice change.'”

I had a problem afterward because I wanted to get a receipt for past purposes and for some reason they hadn't left me anything, but then I had to go through a couple different people, but they were all very helpful and they took care of it. So I would say their customer service is good. I'd give them an A.”

Also, in Dallas, we get a Best Picks magazine, and they were rated very high in there. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very professional, and they did a good job. It was just an excellent service. They did the attic. I liked the salesperson. He was just very knowledgeable.

“I liked them. I would rate them A+.”

“They were very quick. They cleaned up after themselves, and it was just easier than I thought it would be to do that type of job. They insulated an investment property that we have, so they did a shared wall for some condos. I used them again when we had a vacancy, and they did another wall. It was a pretty big shared wall that they did on two floors. They did it very quickly, and it didn't seem like a big job at all for them. They're very responsive. They really try to accommodate my schedule, and I would use this company again. They were recommended to me by a contractor; I just went with them because it was a reference from someone that I trusted. I'd give them an A.”

I talked to another company and Garland Insulation, and they just seemed to be the most professional in the way they handled it, so I went with them. They did the attic for me. I'd give them an A because in my mind, everything went fine, although it has been a while.”

“This work was done a while back. They did insulation work for me through the whole house. I had no problems with them. They were good for me.”

“They seemed very organized. They came when they said they were going to come. There wasn't a long delay or anything like that. They were in and out. They did the entire attic, which covers the entire area. It's a single-story house. I'd give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating did a good job.”

“I liked the representative that came out. He didn't try to push anything extra. The guys that came out and did the work were real friendly. They didn't make a big mess and didn't leave a big mess. I got them out of the Best Picks book for my area. They sucked out the old insulation and blew in all new. I'd give them an A.”

“It was fine.”

“They didn't waste any time putting a price together, and they got right out and got it done. I had them add insulation to the attic for the whole house. I chose them over a different company because the name Garland Insulation has been around for a while, and I already knew about them. I would grade them as an A.”

“They were on time. They were quick with their work, and the work seems to have been good quality work. They were recommended by my roofing company. The job was fairly small. They just blew in additional insulation in the attic. I'd give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating is absolutely wonderful—everything you could look for in a company. They are neat and clean. The thing I liked the most was that the man gave me options and didn't pressure me to take a useless one. Certain houses don't need as much insulation as others, and I would not have known that in the least. They've earned an A+ grade.”

“Working with Garland Insulating was top-notch. They were knowledgeable and timely, and they did it right. They did foam insulation in the attic and walls, and the representative was really nice and really trustworthy. I would give them an A+.”

“We have used Garland Insulating several times over the past 25 years. They've always done an outstanding job, and the quality and service have always been the same—outstanding. Word-of-mouth advertising is the best, and they've got it. They're A+.”

“Garland did some foam and some cellulose insulation for me. I chose them because of their performance and service—A+.”

“They were clean in the process of putting more insulation in our attic. They were efficient, here on time, got the job done, and cleaned up after themselves. I got them out of Best Pick Reports. It worked out for me. I feel over the past few years since it was done that it was effective, and it did make a difference. They were honest in their estimate. I would give Garland Insulating an A.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and they actually went above and beyond. They provided some additional insulation they initially had missed on their take-off and didn't charge extra for it. Over the past few years, there has been a slight increase in comfort level. Nothing's gone wrong. I'd give them an A.”

“It was a very good experience. They were nice and tidy, and they were professional and very prompt. I was very pleased with them. They insulated the whole house, and I've noticed the difference in my energy bills. It all worked out very well.”

“Garland put 15 inches of insulation in my attic—this is a 1960s house, so it requires a little bit more than a new house. It has helped tremendously. The workers were very good and very professional. I'd say they should get an A+.”

“I was pleased with Garland Insulating. They put in some insulation, and I've seen a reduction in our bills and an increase in overall comfort. I feel like that company deserves an A grade.”

“They added a foil barrier upstairs, sealed off my attic, and added insulation. It was good. I'd recommend them.”

“I'll give them an A all the way around. The insulation they put in the house is great. I didn't really have any personal dealings with them; they just came by and got up there, put the insulation in, and left. I went up there, and it looks good. It's the right depth, and they got the corners—they got the areas that I asked them to get. The workers were good. They got in, got the job done, and that was it. They showed up when they said they were going to and did the job when they said they were going to do it. I give them my recommendation.”

“They were excellent. Garland Insulating did everything when I redid our home. They did the walls and the attic, and they did everything to code. Their service was excellent. There was one guy, the owner—he was great. It was grade A—excellent.”

“I would say Garland's an A+; I'd recommend them. The workers were excellent, and they did good, quality work. The product is kind of like shredded-up newspaper that you put in the wall.”

“They did a good job. We were real pleased. Garland came to the house and put installation in, and they did good, quality work.”

“Garland did a good job with the installation in my attic. The quality of their work seemed to be good, and I didn't have any communication problems with the crew. I actually used them because I read Best Pick Reports and saw them in there; that's why I used them. They also finished the work in a reasonable amount of time and were considerate of people at my home. I'd give them an A.”

“I would grade them an A+. They just did my attic insulation, and I feel the difference; I also noticed that our electric bill went down about $20 or $30 a month. A friend of mine referred me to them. The people were clean, efficient, and quick, and their cleanup was perfect. I didn't have to do any clean up after they were done.”

“Garland Insulating was timely, cost efficient, and did more than they really committed to doing to make sure they did the job right. They did attic insulation, and it's a quality product, really. The workers that came out were fine as well, and the time frame the work was finished in was excellent. The clean up was very, very good. I think that covers it. An A+ as their grade would be appropriate.”

“They sprayed insulation in our attic, and the quality of their work was fine. The cleanup was fine—grade A. I would use this company again. They did what they said they were going to do.”

“Garland Insulating did the housing insulation above the roof and in the attic. They definitely did good, quality work for me. And the technicians that came out were very courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and competent. I would give them an A, definitely an A.”

“Garland Insulating did some work for me in the past, and it was a positive experience. They did insulation work in the attic for me. They did quality work. I first heard of Garland Insulating from my heater man. I would recommend the company, and I'd give them an A+.”

“They get an A+. They did an excellent job insulating the ceiling. The workers were perfect—cordial and nice. I've already recommended them.”

“I would give them an A+. They were on time and completed the job real good. I'd recommend them. They were good.”

“We ended up going with Garland. They put some insulation in our attic about two months ago. They got the job done and were very professional. The customer service was fine as well. Their rating would be an A.”

“Garland Insulating insulated our garage and the expansion area we did on the house. The overall quality of the work that they did was excellent. I have not really noticed a difference in my energy bill, but I felt very good about the technicians that did the work. They just did a good job on the final cleanup; there wasn't any left for me to do. They get an A.”

“I had them do my new house. I had a good feeling about them. They did the walls of my house and the walls in the attic, and then they also did the ceiling in the attic—they did my entire home. I put more insulation than what was required by code. I found them through a British fellow that I know. He just recommended them. I don't have anything bad to say about my experience with them. They cleaned up; they didn't make a mess, which was important to me. And when it was time to pay the bill, the workers in the office were pretty courteous. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a good job, I guess. They came in early spring last year and installed blown-in insulation in our attic. I think it was great; so far, so good. They're very efficient. It was a one-day job, and the cleanup was good. I would say they're an A+.”

“It was fine. Everything was fine. We had a good experience. As far as we can recall, everything was fine. I'd say it was excellent, with no issues. That'd be an A.”

“They were fine. I called them, they came pretty quickly, and they cleaned up. They put the insulation in the house and did a great job. They started out by giving me a quote, and they were very polite and courteous. Afterward, they cleaned up after themselves. I would give them an A-.”

“I had more insulation installed in my attic by Garland. The quality of the work was great—A+. They did a great job; there wasn't any mess left at all. And I have noticed a little bit of a difference in my energy bill. They were a good company, and I would definitely have them do more work.”

“It was great. I've noticed a difference in my utilities since they changed our insulation.”

“I'm very satisfied with them. They did insulation as well as radiant barriers in all three of my locations, and they did a good job. I just liked that it's a prompt service; they finished in a reasonable amount of time. And nothing at all went wrong, so I would say they're a reliable company. I would grade Garland Insulating an A, and I'll use them again if I need to.”

“They were fabulous. They did a wonderful job, and I'd highly recommend them to anybody. They were on time, and they cleaned up after themselves. How that guy got in that little crawl space—I swear he worked for the circus. Overall, it was absolutely a positive experience—A+. They were wonderful.”

“It was a good experience. They did the attic. They quickly did what they said they'd do, and it works the way it's supposed to. They cleaned up well after their service, absolutely, and they were respectful of my house. They ran probably, 200 feet of plastic through my house to clean it up. I'd give them an A—I have no complaints.”

“Garland Insulating did a good job. I was very happy and satisfied with the insulation that they blew into the attic of my home. That's the job they did for me, and I'm very happy. I don't remember anything about it except I was very pleased and happy with the job they did. I'd have to go with an A grade.”
