Called on Weds, Anthony quoted 3 car attic blown insulation job and I evaluated choices by Thursday, Ken and his helper started work at 8 am Friday and they were done, cleaned up & gone by 10:30 am. Great job, fair price and no problems.

Review by Dan B. in Zion, IL
This company quoted my a price for R19 insulation. Then when it came time to install, they asked for 50% more than was agreed. I would not pay, so they only installed R13 but still certified it as R19. I had to hire another contractor to get the work done right. Do yourself a favor and skip this business.
Response by Building Energy Experts, Inc.: Sorry for your concern. I anticipated this review. However, this isn't how this happened at all. You called us and asked for a price quote of 2 inches of foam. Then the day of you indicated you were getting the project inspected. I informed you you needed 3 inches to pass inspection. Not everyone gets projects inspected. I was just informing you of the code. I gave you the price difference and you wanted to stay at 2 inches. We arrived on time, preformed the job as agreed to, left the work site cleaner than we found it. You happliy paid the full amount for 2 inches and were completely satisfied at the end of the project.

Review by in Chicago, IL
One point I appreciated was the transparency of their pricing. I received estimates from multiple contractors and Building Energy Experts itemized all costs so that I knew exactly what I was paying for regarding the project. They were prompt, diligent, and very respectful of me and my home/belongings. Another point was their voluntary coordination of an energy rebate for me which saved me $700 off the cost of the project. None of the other contractors offered this service. I would hire them again.

Review by in Carol Stream, IL
They did great work, even after their compressor malfunctioned. We all came up with an alternative solution and they were able to get the job completed on time.

Review by in Bartlett, IL
They did a wonderful job. The 2nd flood temp change is now negligible where before it was extreme. That is before almost a 10 degree difference between 1st floor and 2nd floor, now only a couple degrees. They cleaned up well. I would recommend this company to others. They kept me informed throughout the entire process.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
