    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.

    Customer Testimonial

              Greg was a professional from beginning to end. There was approximately a 2 month period between the estimate and the work but they still honored the price. I retained the service because my home would lose heat in the winter and cold air in the summer. Greg came about 20 minutes early to brief me on the work that would take place, the timetable and the rooms they would need to access. They completed the work in a timely fashion. I went through with the estimate and checked off everything I paid for. It would appear all the work was completed as promised. The staff was personable and made sure to clean up after they completed their work. Spray foam in rim joists, add R30 to attic, above garage and secondary attic space to bring home to R49. Installed baffles, two ventilation fans and two roof vents.

              Kevin and Greg were extremely responsive. Just before the work began we scaled back the scope of work and the Blanket team did not blink, which I believe is a mark of their professionalism. This coupled with their A+ responsiveness and the fact that noise has already been noticeably reduced, means we will call them again when we reach other points of our home update. Thanks, Blanket!

  • "We were very pleased with the crew." Read Full Testimonial

    Otto L of Rochester Hills, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              Greg and his helper first took all the measurements to identify air leaks and grades of insulation. After 2.5 hours of testing, Greg reported his findings, and made recommendations what should be done to reduce air leaks to a desired level, and to improve insulation. We ask him if his company will handle all the improvements, he said yes, and provided a detailed estimates for 2 solutions. We placed the order. The crew arrived on time about 2 weeks later. They were very professional and hard working. We were amazed that they were able to finish a great job by the early after noon. Every thing was nicely cleaned up before they left. We were very pleased with the crew. Greg came the next day, to check the "After Improvement" ratings, which were substantially better than projected. Our CONSUMERS rebate check of $ 700.00 was received within les than 3 weeks. All together a very pleasant experience.

  • "We would highly recommend this company." Read Full Testimonial

    Lynda P of Farmington Hills, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              Initially, we had an energy assessment through Consumer Energy, and based on that we discovered that our insulation was not up to current standards, and other areas were lacking as well. The house was built in 1963. It is a ranch home on a slab. We had some insulating done many years ago, but felt the family room, which was added by the original owner, was cold. The insulation was limited up there, plus we stored things up there. Decided to not use that space as storage, and to insulate the entire house. Greg Mellas from Blanket Insulation came to our house to help with a more comprehensive energy analysis. In our discussion, we told him about the attic over the addition, and told him that there was some vermiculite insulation installed by the original owner. Unfortunately, Greg said that vermiculite, in many cases, contains asbestos. He sent out a sample to an independent company for analysis and it did show asbestos. They don't do asbestos remediation. We went with another company for that. We chose to have it completely removed rather that just contain it. We were thankful that we had this discussion with Greg, because it was a health issue. Greg provided an energy audit report to us, and gave us an itemized list of what could be done to improve the energy efficiency of our house. This was a list that broke down all the items by price. He also did thermal imaging of our walls to determine how much insulation was there. We had our walls done years ago. There was some settling, but not significantly. Greg said that it would not be as beneficial doing more in the walls. The ceiling was the most critical. We discussed the rebates available through Consumer Energy for doing the job. These rebates are significant - approximately $350.00. He helped us with the paperwork on that. He will submit to Consumer Energy, and we will get the rebate directly. We also were able to take advantage of Angie's list discount. The workers arrived on time and were extremely courteous. They covered the floor with tarp wherever they worked. They worked continuously from 9:00 to 5:30 - not even breaking for lunch. It was hot in the attic, but they worked through it. Greg came here to do some of the work as well. They had us inspect their work periodically during the day. They did an excellent job of cleaning up. Greg performed a draft door test on the house at the end of the day. He said there was a significant drop in air flow after the job was done. He was careful to say that a house cannot be completely air tight. That is a health issue as well. We would highly recommend this company. Greg explained everything in detail. I felt that we were respected, and well informed, and we felt they did an excellent job. In his report, he gave us estimated energy savings. Can't comment on that yet, as the heat is off right now, and the air conditioning is not on yet. We're confident we will see savings.

    Customer Testimonial

              I rarely go the extra mile to fill out survey's. However, when a company goes the extra mile to do their job and more...I must. May I say what a pleasure it has been to work with the friendliest and most professional group from Blanket Insulation. From Greg to Andrew , Jack and Dion. Most specifically when I asked Greg for an after infrared test and he said "absolutely". When Jack was done working in the house, he made sure to clean the area twice. They went above and beyond my expectations. BTW, just turned the heater on 2 days ago. My home is warm and toasty. 5 stars please. May your business continue to grow and flow.

    Customer Testimonial

              Kyle and crew did a great job!!...they were very professional & thorough. It all started with Greg who was also very professional and thorough discovering what our issues were, answering all of our questions & concerns to solve them. We never felt pushed or rushed. We never thought we would look forward to winter to see that this solved our "Ice Dam" problem (and loss of energy), therefore, we will give another, more accurate comment then. If it isn't solved, we are confident you will correct it. Thanks again, Gayle & Rob K

    Customer Testimonial

              Greg M., Rodney and Josh were absolutely fantastic. The team told me that it would a day to complete the work. It took about seven hours for the job to complete. They cleaned everything. I couldn't even tell that they were here. They showed the values prior to and after the job was complete. The house has a lot less draft. I actually can feel the air conditioning and / or the heat.....before the wind blew right down the middle of the house. Thanks Team! Highly recommend them! We even actually applied for a higher rebate based on the job they conducted.....

    Crawl Space Encapsulation & Air Sealing in Grosse Pointe, MI

    In the winter, there is cold air circulating directly beneath your living space which can make floors chilly, forcing you to pay more to heat your house. To help this Grosse Pointe homeowner be warmer, we used a specialized process which is often referred to as crawl space encapsulation.

    During the encapsulation process, all crawl space access doors and vent openings are sealed with airtight removable covers. Heavy-duty moisture barriers are installed against foundation walls and over the floor. Rigid foam insulation, installed against foundation walls, completes the process of totally separating the crawl space interior from exterior conditions. Instead of a dark, damp space that causes comfort, energy and durability problems, an encapsulated crawl space can be a positive feature that enhances comfort and home value.
