You’ve made the decision to get your home insulated after getting an estimate, but now you have an even bigger question – when will the work begin?

The process has started with the free estimate, you’ve signed the contract, and put down a deposit. Now you’re getting prepared for crews to come to your home to start the work that will make your space more comfortable in the summer and winter, while saving you money on your monthly energy bills.

When Will the Work Begin?

In most cases, it may be a week to two weeks before a crew comes to the home.

RetroFoam of Michigan schedules this way to make sure the crews aren’t rushed, thus ensuring each home insulation installation job is done thoroughly. When we come to your home, the crews work as a team like an assembly line.

The process of insulating a home includes prepping the area to be insulated – cleaning out old insulation or removing siding, installing the foam insulation, and cleaning up after the install to make sure your home looks just like it did before crews arrived.

Another factor that comes into play when scheduling a home insulation is where crews are across the state. RetroFoam of Michigan services the entire lower peninsula, so when crews are scheduled we take into consideration what area they are already scheduled to be working in.

Our goal when scheduling our crews is to keep them busy at all times.
