“There wasn't anything that I liked or disliked about them. I would grade them an A+.”

“They just showed up on time and did what they said they would do—that's not often the case. I'd say they're A+. I would recommend them.”

“We are happy with the work that they did for us. Nothing to dislike. We did like the work. The person I spoke with, who actually came, checked out and gave us a quote, but I remember he said—I had a concern with how much dust there would be, because this was a flooded house, and we wanted to move back upstairs to get out of the hotel and move in back upstairs with my two dogs, so my concern was that while they were doing the work it would not be too dusty, so that I didn't get any allergies, and I think they kept that promise pretty well. It didn't get dusty or anything. They managed to keep everything contained. I would definitely give an A. Given the fact that there was a big demand just after hurricane Harvey, it was not as fast as I would have expected it to be. But like I said, given that it was right after hurricane Harvey, and everybody was so rushed for work, I think the time they took to get back to me, and the time they took to actually come in and do the work, it was pretty good, pretty satisfactory.”

“They've done a lot of work for me. They did the work well—no complaints, and I would recommend them.”

“We were flooded. We had a lot of people in and out of here; they came in blew in some insulation and did a good job.”

“It seemed like they were pretty good.”

“They did a great job for me. Garland was one of the few good contractors I had while gutting and adding onto my house. They completely insulated the entire house with spray foam, and they did an excellent job. They did what they said they were going to. I'd give them an A+. The rep that worked with me did an excellent job. I'm recommending them.”

“They were very professional. They did the work on time, and they were clean. They installed insulation. I'd give them an A+.”

“Garland put spray foam insulation in the floor of our weekend home. They did a good job. They're very nice. They showed up when they were supposed to, and everything went real smoothly. I would rate them as an A+, and I've already recommended them to my friend.”

“They reinsulated a flooded house. They did a good job—A.”

“I've always had a positive experience with them. I've used them for years.”

“Garland Insulating did lots of houses for me—I'm a homebuilder. They've done probably eight houses for me in the past couple of months. Overall, they just show up when they say they're going to. They do a good job. They offer any inspection items on their work so that's good. Now that I'm thinking about it—recently, I had a house where they did have a couple of items. They were back out the same day to repair them, which is exceptional. I can give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating has done work for me. I am happy with their work. They did pretty good. One of the sales guys is a friend of my superintendent. They just did my second house. They just did one job for me. They did great. I'd give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating did work for me. I'd give them a five-star rating. They insulated the attic of this home. My son works for a company, and Garland Insulating does work for them, so he recommended them to me. I'll give them an A+.”

“I had a water leak in my house two-and-a-half years after we built it. Garland Insulating came out, and it was just half a wall, but I needed the insulation replaced, because it had gotten wet. They came out and did the job for free, so I have nothing but very positive things to say about them. I'd give them an A+.”

“Garland Insulating did work at one of my buildings. Everything's fine. I think they did good. I'll give them an A.”

“I'd give Garland Insulating an A.”

“Garland Insulating was cooperative. Everything was positive with them. They did a great job. I didn't choose the company; the administration hired the company. I just called them up. I would give them an A.”

“Everything was good about Garland Insulating. We didn't have any issues whatsoever. They were on time. The job was completed. There were no problems. They were doing insulation for me. I'd give them an A. They did real good.”

“Garland Insulating just got in there and got the job done. They were insulating. We already do business with them. I'd give them an A.”

“We were very satisfied with Garland Insulating. We plan on using them again.”

“Garland Insulating insulated an attic for me. I've worked with them in the past quite a bit. They always followed up if there were any hiccups. They did more than just one job for me. The communication was good. I'd give them an A.”

“The work was done well and in a timely manner. Garland Insulating did a heat shield and blown-in foam insulation for me. I chose them because they were researched by my parents. I didn't have time to look at it. I'll give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating was on time. They did the work they were supposed to. They kept the job site clean. They did foam insulation for me throughout the whole house. They got it done quickly. I'll give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating was good. It was two years back, but as far as the insulation goes, it's held up until now so that's good. They actually insulated our office. I would give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating did a very good job. I'm really very happy with them. I think they were detailed—they delivered probably more than they promised. They were very thorough, they were punctual, and they did everything by the book. Everything they told me they would do, they did. It was new construction—they did the entire house. I would recommend them to a friend. And the fellow who basically was my contact was named Chris Banks—he's very good. I'll give them an A.”

“I liked the savings to my utility bills—it was a big impact. I just had Garland Insulating do the insulation in the attic, and it took them less than a day to get it done. The customer service was very good. I would recommend them to a friend, and I'll give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating were prompt. They did a good job. They were doing added insulation and blown-in insulation for me. I'll give them an A-.”

“Garland Insulating did great. Grade them the top whatever they get.”

“Go ahead and give Garland Insulating all positives- 100%.”

“Garland Insulating did blown-in insulation at my parents' house. It was great service, and they did a fantastic job. I would rate them as an A-level company.”

“They did a really good job. It lowered my electric bill, and that's what I really liked. They did insulation in the attic. They were efficient, and their customer service was excellent. They get an A.”

“I've always done business with Garland Insulating, and they've always done a good job. They show up on time and do what they're supposed to do. I don't have any problems, and I've been using them for over ten years. They did insulation for me all throughout the home, and I'd give them an A.”

“The salesperson was efficient and helpful, and everything was done on time. They did insulation in our garage. They followed through completely, so I'd give them an A without any doubt.”

“Garland Insulating did the spray foam for a build-out that we did. I build the units out, and then I sell them. Garland did a good job. They came and did what they were supposed to do, and you could definitely tell a difference in there with the insulation. They were an A+.”

“Garland Insulating did some insulation work this past spring. They arrived when they said they were going to arrive, and they had all of the products that they needed to do the work on my house. They did the work in a timely, neat, and orderly fashion. They had me look at it and inspect it before they left, and they cleaned up everything before they left, too. It was a very good experience overall. I would give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating did some work for me in February of last year. They scheduled the appointment, showed up on time, did what they said they were going to do, and cleaned up after themselves. That's good enough for me. It was straightforward—pretty basic. I've since sold the home, but I think there was a difference in the energy bills and comfort level inside of the home. I'd give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating did work for us in April of last year. They put insulation in over the garage, and then they just spaced out the rest of it in places where it was lacking and didn't charge me for that. The cost was what they told me before they started. They were clean and on time, and they were in and out. They were great. I had called my builder and asked him who had done the original insulation, and he gave me Garland's name. I would give them an A.”

“Garland Insulating did some work for me in the summer. They initially made an error, but they fixed it above and beyond my expectations. They applied the wrong product, which was not a bad product, but I had paid for a different one. When I called them on it, not only the salesman but also management called me to go over different options, and we picked the most beneficial option for me. In the end, it worked out for them as well. They gave me some choices and worked with me. We got it installed, so it was really good. I would give them an A+. They were good.”

“Garland was extremely knowledgeable about insulation. My house was particularly difficult, but they were able to put modern insulation technology into our 140-year-old home without compromising its overall integrity, which was a delicate balance. It was killer work—A+.”

“Garland did insulation for us, and it was well done. They were great—very polite and very courteous. They double-checked to find the easiest access point to blow in insulation, and they cleaned up excellently. They did a great job. I'd give them the highest rating—A+.”

“They installed attic insulation, and they were timely, responsive, and treated my house respectfully. I've noticed a difference in my house since the work was done; it's a lot cooler in the summer, and we don't use the A/C as much. I'd give them an A+.”

“My overall experience with Garland Insulating was positive. I'd give them an A. They were willing to do a small job. They came in, got the job done, and left. I appreciated their expediency, and I will use them again.”

“Garland Insulation is always working out here. They installed some rigid insulation. They were professional—they came in and did their job. It was a positive experience overall. They're an A.”

“I would give Garland Insulating an A. A friend of mine in the construction business uses them, and he recommended them to me. They insulated my attic. They were here when they said they were going to be here, did their job, and left. They didn't make a mess, and they cleaned up after themselves. You wouldn't even know they were here. I didn't have any complaints about what they did.”

“I had some insulation blown in my attic, and it was an absolutely positive experience. They came on time, did their job, and left. It was a simple process. The gentleman came over and gave me an estimate, and they scheduled it right away. I have not had to call them back. I think they deserve an A.”

“I would rate them an A+. They did a good job. They were prompt in giving me a bid, and real quick with scheduling. They put insulation in my whole house, and they were clean. A friend of mine recommended them to me, and I would recommend them to others.”

“Excellent. Garland is a great company. Definitely an A. They did such good work on the first job I gave them that I called them in for a second house. They were a joy to work with; they did everything they said they were going to do, and they left the house in excellent shape.”

“I was very pleased with Garland. They did all the insulation in a 3,500-square-foot house. Very responsive. They're an A.”

“Everything was good. They were knowledgeable, competent, and completely nice. I liked them very much. Garland was recommended to me by a neighbor who is a builder, and I would grade them an A+.”

“Garland did exactly what we asked them to do. They were very courteous, precise, and thorough. We had all new insulation installed in a home we're remodeling as well as some insulation put in our crawl space. I'd give them an A+.”

“I had a positive experience with Garland Insulating. They added both spray foam and blown-in insulation to the attic in our older home. The customer service was good. There was actually a scheduling problem on their end, but they proactively went and fixed the problem, so that was very good. It's better that it was done correctly and that they worked around their problem than making me work around it. It took them less than a day, so it worked out pretty well. I'd give them an A.”

“They do good work. They are accommodating, and if they do make a little mistake, they try to rectify it as quickly and completely as possible. It's been a positive experience. I would give them an A.”

“Garland insulated our whole home, and they did a fabulous job. I couldn't be happier with my electric bills. Another thing I liked was that they were here when they said they'd be, which is rare in the construction world. I liked that about their service. We've been pleased.”

“I thought they were excellent, very neat, and clean. I had blown-in insulation put in the attic, and when they left it was so clean I couldn't tell they had ever been there. They also installed an attic door seal to keep air from leaking through and did a great job on that. I would recommend them to other people.”

“They added more insulation and a heat barrier and did a good job in a timely manner. We saw a difference in the heat over the summer.”

“I thought they were great. They were in and out in an hour. They were very professional guys. I'm not a professional, so I can't go out there and inspect what they did, but it seems like they did pretty good work. We've only had it for a few days now, but it definitely seems like the temperature is regulating more effectively now.”

“They're awesome. They got it in, did the job, did an awesome job at it, and I've got no complaints. Those guys came in here and just did an awesome job. They were one of the best companies I've had working at my house.”

“Garland did a great job. They were here when they were supposed to be here, and they did what they had to do. With the drought and the heat that Texas has had this year, we are really glad we did it.”

“They did a great job. They did what they promised, which was to give us great service. I would say that they have an outstanding product and outstanding service.”

“I was happy with their work. They came in, did what they needed to do, and I didn't have any problems whatsoever. They were very professional, very courteous, and they cleaned up really well. They didn't leave a mess, which I was really happy about.”

“I feel good about them. Their prompt service is what stuck out to me.”

“They're great. I would definitely recommend them to another homeowner.”

“Garland did a great job. They came in a timely manner and did what they said they were going to do. The product is new to me, but so far it seems like it's doing pretty well.”

“I think they were very good. Garland is a very reputable company. The extra things they did really satisfied me. There was some loose insulation in the walls in the attic, and they went ahead and put that back up for me. They were very thorough.”

“I don't think I was in the house when they did it, but as far as the work goes, that's all I can comment on. The work that they've done so far has held up. I have no complaints. They've done a good job.”

“I feel very good about Garland. I have no complaints. He was a nice guy and he did his job.”

“Garland did a good job. They added insulation to our attic and they blew insulation into the interior walls in the garage.”

“They did the work a year and a half ago. They sprayed a heat block up in the attic. They did some insulation in my attic, heat block, and they put an attic tent over the door. They did it in one day and they did great. Unfortunately, I had to replace the roof about three months later, and I knocked off some of the stuff they sprayed up there. It's still good, though. The service people that came out were good. They were great, and I would recommend them to others. Hopefully, I won't need it again, but if I did I would use them again.”

“I didn't have any problems with Garland Insulating, and I'd use them again. I only had a small job.”

“Garland Insulating did some work for me. I think it was the end of last year, or maybe the beginning of the year. I was satisfied with the work they did.”

“I'm fine with Garland Insulating's work, but I haven't been in my attic since. They were certainly professional and knocked it out. The insulation went well, very, very well, and I would definitely recommend them in the future.”

“I've gone through the whole summer, and I was waiting to go through the winter and then I was going to e-mail Best Pick Reports. I forget the name of the guy who came out and did it, but we are completely, 100 percent satisfied. Last summer our bills were averaging around $450, and the highest bill we had this year was $296. I am really, really, really satisfied with the work that they did and the professionalism we were shown. The person that came out was very honest. He gave my husband some tips on things he could do prior to them coming and actually doing the insulating. I'm just very happy. I would recommend them to others.”

“It was just the cellulose insulation in my attic. I was very satisfied with their work. They were in and out really quick. They cleaned up after themselves. I would refer them to somebody else, I already have. They were awesome. They were very timely. They told me what time they'd be there and they were there. It didn't take them very long to get the job done. They cleaned up after themselves and were in and out in no time.”

“Garland Insulating insulated our attic, and I'm very, very satisfied with their work. We'd definitely refer them to someone else, we have been. The supervision of the guys who were here doing it was outstadning; they were constantly supervising the work, and they came back and made sure everything was okay. They did a very good, professional job. We'd definitely recommend them to anybody.”

“They did attic insulation. They did a good job, and we've been happy with them. They were pretty easy to work with. When we put the insulation in, we saw a temperature difference.”

“We were very pleased with Garland. They got in, did it, got out, and they didn't leave a mess. We were very pleased.”

“They've always been good. I haven't used them in quite a while. I have used them in the last four years. What stands out that I really appreciate is their spiel and the sales guy, Jason Vickers. He always follows up, and whenever I need anything, he's accessible. He takes care of whatever I need.”

“I was satisfied with their services. There was nothing in particular about the company that I liked, just overall satisfaction.”

“They're an insulation company. They've done a couple of things for me. They did a really good job, and I think they finished the job in an appropriate amount of time. I would definitely call this company back or refer them to other people.”
