  • "I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Blanket Insulation." Read Full Testimonial

    Daron M. of Detroit, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Blanket Insulation. The salesman, Greg Mellas, came out to my home in mid March, on time, and gave me an initial estimate for the attic and basement joists. I also indicated that I had the outside walls done 20 years ago and that there might be some settling, which a thermal imaging confirmed. Greg indicated that they could "top off" the walls which increased the price to $3950.On the day of the job the lead technician (Lorenzo) indicated that after drilling a few holes and trying to fill them up, the outside walls would not take any of the insulation, and he did not feel comfortable charging for that component of the job because the outside walls were obviously already full. Another of the technicians, Rodney, also confirmed that whoever had done the walls had done a pretty good job. They suggested that I contact their boss and go with the original job, which they did admirably. The attic is neat, they cleaned up after themselves, and the basement is so neat that I first couldn't see where they had done the work. A good job for a fair price is all I expected, but their integrity and honesty were an unexpected bonus. The guys could have drilled some more holes and charged me for work I didn't need and I would have never known the difference. The character of these men is rare in today's world and I hope these guys get a lot of business. From my experience, I highly recommend Blanket Insulation

    Theresa U. of Clinton Township, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              Blanket Insulation came to my house March 16, 2016, to insulate the attic over and the crawlspace under an addition to my master bedroom. They arrived promptly, were professional, and took care to lay down tarps, wear boot covers and take all precautions to keep the house clean. The job took about five hours to complete. I guess only time will tell if the insulation did the trick to keep my addition warm and cozy.

    Melissa G. of Ferndale, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              Insulated two attics (one on each side of the upstairs bedroom) with blown in insulation and foam. Insulated the rim joists as well. Their work was really detailed and thorough. The winter prior, my pipes froze any time the temperature dropped below 15 degrees or I had to leave the faucets dripping. Blanket Insulation fixed that problem and have given me tremendous peace of mind this winter.

  • "I highly recommend this service." Read Full Testimonial

    John Z. of Bellville, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              I had Blanket Insulation do a whole house energy audit. A couple days before the appointment, they sent me an information packet with a few forms for me to fill out, a picture of my service person and a description of his qualifications. The day before, they called to confirm the appointment and the day of, the service person Greg, called to make sure we were still on track. Greg arrived promptly at 2:30 PM. He was polite, professional and very neat. His tools and equipment were well organized and he had a jump suit and shoe coverings to keep our house from getting dirty. He was very careful when he went into the attic so the blown insulation did not go all over. He did a thorough job and explained all of his findings. He explained which repairs could be done and whether they would bring a good payback or not. I followed him throughout the inside portion of the analysis and he was very thorough. Greg said he will send a follow up report and we can discuss what makes sense for repairs and also which repairs are simple, do it yourself repairs. The usual price is $300 for this service and I think that is a fair price. He was in our home for 3 hours and he was busy the entire 3 hours. This service for $59 is almost embarrassingly cheap. I highly recommend this service. I had an energy audit done about 10 years ago and paid about $275. This service was much more thorough and the base price is about the same. I am going to forward Blanket Insulation contact information to our Homeowner's Association board and maintenance company. If you want to list me as a reference for your company, I'd be happy to retell my story.

Our Story

Blanket Insulation 1982

With over 35 years of experience, Blanket Insulation’s history is deeply rooted in the energy efficiency movement. Our company began in 1979 as a full-service residential insulation and weatherization contractor specializing in blown-in cellulose insulation. Luckily for us, the energy conservation boom of the mid 1980’s followed soon after our inception.

It was during this time when Blanket Insulation secured its first major contract with Michigan Consolidated Gas Company (Michcon) to provide insulation and weatherization services for its customers. By the early 1990’s, we were providing similar services to customers for the area’s other major utility companies, including Detroit Edison and Consumer Powers. This allowed Blanket Insulation to establish a niche and become one the premier insulation/weatherization contractors in southeast Michigan. Today, we are proud to have continued our traditions and expanded our services to even more deserving customers!
