Areas of Expertise

  • Wall Cavity Injection RetroFoam Insulation is a game-changing foam insulation material that completely fills wall cavities, adds major R-value and lasts for many more years than traditional materials.
  • Spray foam is the perfect choice for any project that has an open wall, floor or ceiling cavity. It has high R-value, the ability to bond directly to wood and can mold itself around any obstacle.
  • We perform detailed air sealing in every attic space we work on. That's how we can guarantee insulation improvement. This can include RetroFoam, spray foam and any existing insulation like fiberglass.
  • There are many areas of your home that need to be sealed, some more obvious than others. We follow a professional, focused process to make sure your home is fully sealed to increase efficiency.
  • Energy Audits & Blower Doors - This signature test of home performance offers data about air leakage that can be compared not only to other homes, but also as a before and after look at your project.

Professional and courteous. The folks on site took time to answer any question, wore masks and cleaned up well. They did great job painting the stucco after insulation and patching - house looks great. The insulation is already making huge difference in my 1911 house in Minneapolis- not sure the boiler will kick in till December.

Review by in Mora, MN
These "experts" told us our problem with ice dams would significantly improve and our energy bills would be reduced by replacing and upgrading our insulation in the attic. We paid them over $13,000 and the result- ice dams got WORSE and the energy bills didn't go down. We asked them to re-evaluate. They admitted they should have done some vents and other things differently, and said they'd return to make those corrections. Guess what....they never showed up and now they won't return our calls or emails. Needless to say, we are very disappointed. We threw $13,000 down the drain. Do not use this company. Go elsewhere.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
