Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because insulation, when installed properly, makes customers' homes more comfortable and helps them save money at the same time. I am also a problem solver. When a customer has a problem with ice dams, moisture, drafts and such, I know how to solve them. Our services also increase the value of our customers' homes.

We started in this industry in 1977.

We describe our business as Well established

Why should customers choose Saunders Insulation Specialists?

We can prove that our insulation project will save our customers money and increase their comfort.

Review by in Milwaukee, WI
the team is like some super heros they came in and saved the day by getting rid of all my asbestos in the basement now my plumbers and heating and cooling guys can come in and finish the rest of the projects. I do appreciate the hard work and ethics the crew have..

I had some complicated issues regarding ventilation of my home. Saunders went out of their way to make sure the job was done correctly. I was skeptical that the added insulation would not make much of a difference but it has. I would highly recommend them!

Not only the work, but they are a great group to converse with and provide clear descriptions of what they are doing or what they have found, and provide for appropriate ways to remedy those problems they discover.

Review by in Madison, WI
Steve came out first and did a "pre-inspection" from a ladder leading up into the attic... in doing so he missed couple of crucial areas, which the work crew discovered later, and which added about $1500 to the quoted cost. I feel that is poor business practice and that contractors should not be adding surprises to the sticker shock on large and expensive projects. Apart from that, we were totally satisfied. The crew were very professional, worked hard and, judging by the results of the post-test, did a thorough job. It took longer than expected but I put that down to the incomplete/inadequate pre-inspection.

Review by in South Beloit, IL
Our Basement was cold so I looked for someone locally that could discuss with me my available options. Steve, the owner stopped by and was the best I could have hoped for. He pointed out so many things I could do to improve my homes efficiency and comfort. Very personable, knowledgeable, experienced, professional and likable guy. I had them spray open cell foam along the top of our poured cement walls and the floor of the main level of the house, Air Seal the Attic, Install 6 foot long rafter vents, Block & Foam the eves, Install additional Cellulose to bring Attic insulation to R50. Then Installed Insulated Vents for two bathroom vent fans and the microwave range hood through the roof (Which were installed and vented to the attic space or soffit originally). Timer switches, photo eyes, humidistats for the bathroom fans also. All of this was performed in a timely, efficient and professional manner. Their Prep work is taken extremely seriously and they have a liberal use of sheet plastic to minimize if not totally eliminate any overspray or mess due to the Insulation application / placement. All Areas were vacuumed and wiped clean when they were through, better than when they had got there (how often do you vacuum your basement floor?). And since we have a Ranch style house, the main bathroom has no window and was dark even on a sunny day. A light had to be tuned on. They installed a SOLATUBE in that Bathroom and another out in the Kitchen / Dinning room area. Those bring in the most Glorious Sunlight! The light they provide, even on a cloudy day is just fantastic! A Full Moon or lightning storm also provide light... Delightful! It's funny how when you leave the area you look to turn off the light that isn't on! The Before and After Pressure test was enlightening and definitive. The effort they put into it all was well worth it for us. A great Energy and Comfort Upgrade. It was a pleasure having them work in our home. A truly fantastic group of people. I would highly recommend them. Using contractors in our local area is important to the stability, security, and vibrancy of our communities. Home Advisor provides a useful vehicle for this function.

Review by in Menomonee Falls, WI
Steve and Luke had a challenging set of circumstances in insulating our older home. They're very creative and flexible. And they LISTEN. Saunders customer service is wonderful and communication superb!! We're almost done with our project and, over time, this insulation should pay for itself!

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.
