5 of the Best Insulation Services in Waterford

When we think of home we usually think of warmth and all of the people that live in it. We stop to also think about the practical details as well: appliances, location, renovations and, in this particular article, insulation.

This insulation is a key element in keeping a home’s function intact, namely, keeping the temperature maintained within while preventing outside conditions from entering.

Here are some of the top Insulation Services in Waterford.

How much do insulation services cost?

This cost will differ in regards to the property type, type of insulation material used, size of the property and some other factors.

Most of the prices below are in reference to a semi–detached property type and do not include cost for travel time and labor. It also does not take into account any grants applied on the price.

Waterford Insulation offers a comprehensive range of basic insulations from spray form to external wall and dry lining. What impressed us further is that they also offer more uncommon insulation services such as acoustic and loft insulation.

The other products they sell provide synergy to their primary service. For example, wall and roof ventilation can offset the circulation issues when installing insulation.

We also appreciate that they are transparent with where they source their insulation materials. They provide external links and concise summaries regarding the brand and the product’s capabilities.

The company also highlights the Better Energy Homes scheme and they are willing to assist you in applying to expedite the process.

In terms of the cons, we wish that the company offered more insulation materials for each category. For example, loft insulation spray foam insulation, uses only one type of brand for each.

Cleanup after insulation installations has also been a problem according to some customers we’ve spoken to. We wish that these final details of finishing the process would be more refined.

Pros

  • Clean and efficient processes
  • Experts on energy and retrofitting
  • Promotes the Better Energy Homes Scheme

Cons

  • Limited insulation materials for each category
  • Clean up after each installation needs refinement

Second on our list is MG Insulation Group, who provides services that simplify the process for clients looking for an efficient experience.

The company solely focuses on insulation services and this has resulted in numerous positive feedback describing a fast and clean process. Workers are punctual and arrive at your doorstep with a professional attitude.

MG Insulation group is direct as it provides only three main services of cavity wall, cavity block, attic and spray foam insulation. This has made for faster decision making on the end of its customers which I can appreciate.

We greatly appreciate that MG updates and guides individuals through every step of the process. They assure the client through photos and descriptions, as proof on social media, that their schedule and quality is on track.

The company however, does not offer roof or flooring insulation.

They do focus primarily on foam spray insulation and so customers might feel limited if they wanted a full top to bottom insulation. 

What’s more, descriptions on the insulation materials they use can be more transparent so that customers are able to select which ones they prefer.

Pros

  • Professional and punctual
  • Provides detailed steps of the process

Cons

  • Does not provide roof or flooring insulation
  • Lacking insulation material details

Customer Reviews

Encon has definitely gained a reputation of projects showcasing their focus on green solutions as well as clean designs.

The company has been certified and approved by the SEAI and NSAI under the Better Energy Homes Scheme. This is all part and parcel of their vision to create beautiful projects that also conserve energy.

This is also supplemented by their willingness to help clients get grants. We like that there is an in depth section on their website about the Better Energy Homes Scheme.

Because their services aren’t limited to only insulation, they also highlight the scheme’s application to other categories such as Solar PVs. These would help clients get a more complete picture of what grants can be applicable to them.

Customers that we’ve spoken to have complimented the company for their fantastic service and responsiveness. They are described as top professionals with high standards.

We also like that they set a standard of quality in terms of Passive Houses, which describe an optimal environment where energy and environmental impact are of value.

We also greatly appreciate their thorough explanations right down to the uvalues and sketch designs because it just goes to show how involved and knowledgeable they are every step of the way.

Lastly, a thing of note is Encon’s consideration of aesthetics as well. Not many services highlight and describe this part of the process so Encon’s consideration goes above and beyond function.

Past projects have shown to have a cohesive look with clean lines and unique material choices so homeowners alike will feel the cherry on top of energy efficiency as well as thorough processes.

In terms of the downsides, all of these components only scratch the surface of what Encon can do and this goes to show how tedious and long the work might take.

While we do applaud Encon for their thoroughness and specificity, this might not be the service for you if you’re looking for a quick and easy insulation fix.

Pros

  • Established standards and practices
  • Promotes the Better Energy Homes Scheme
  • Consideration for aesthetics
  • Variety of product offerings

Cons

  • Tedious process
  • Costly time and price wise

Customer Reviews

Greentech Facades focuses its craftsmanship and output on a few key services. As such, they have honed their skills to produce streamlined work in various areas.

The company has worked on hotels, apartment complexes, hospitals and many more. This assures clients that they have a good understanding of various building types and categories.

These projects as well show how smooth their work is. As some previous clients have described, Greentech Facade’s work is top class and they provide excellent service.

What we also appreciate about them is that they are very transparent about the insulation products they use. You can find corresponding links at the bottom of their website, where they source their products and, subsequently, detailed information about those products.

Examples of these include Alsecco insulated render systems and insulation products from Weber, which offers you a variety of insulation products to choose from. 

Furthermore, Greentech Facades highlight their use of EWI or External Wall Insulation in conjunction with some explanation about grants available.

We do feel that there could have been more chances to guide the customer in terms of the details provided and the whole insulation process.

They also do recognize that this process is not generally recommended for timber frame walls or timber clad steel frame walls so in that sense this part of their service is limiting.

What’s more is that they offer ICF constructions or insulated concrete forms, but this in itself has disadvantages such as cost, humidity problems, floor space issues and more. We would like to see more how they address or disclose this to future customers.

Pros

  • Multiple insulation material offerings
  • Clean and smooth aesthetic results
  • Experience in different types of buildings

Cons

  • Limited insulation service type offerings
  • Some processes are not recommended for certain types of houses
  • Downsides to ICF construction

Expert Roofers and their past projects have certainly shown their earning of the title expert.

In terms of insulation, the company only focuses on two types, roofing and loft, but they also offer many other roofing services jointly with these. 

For customers looking only for roofing solutions, we like this service because you get a onestopshop. If you need your roof pitched but also are considering insulation, Expert Roofers makes the process easier as they can coordinate the cost and consequences all in one go.

They also provide a detailed description of their steps, simplifying it further for clients. From analysis of the space to the application of the layers, their team is really thorough in ensuring that their services are tailor fit to your home.

A detailed description of each insulation material used is also provided on their website. Specifically, they use Rockwool Rockprime Blown Attic Insulation and Knauf Ecose Mineral Wool Insulation, both of which are great options for their durability, additive qualities and versatility.

Numerous customers have shared their consistently positive experience with us, highlighting the company’s communication, professionalism and efficiency even with urgent calls. 

The only glaring downside to their services is its scope. Their services do only focus on attic and loft insulation which may be helpful for those who are looking for a highly specific touchup.

This of course wouldn’t be helpful for those looking for a top-to-bottom insulation makeover. What’s more is that their materials are limited to two, which may restrict customers in terms of budget.

Rockwool and mineral wool aren’t the cheapest materials out there, so clients may want to look for other options in terms of cost.

Pros

  • Tailor fit process to the customer
  • Great customer service
  • Offers other roofing services

Cons

  • Only rockwool and mineral wool as material options
  • Limited to attic and loft insulation

Customer Reviews

Provides Periodic Updates

Peter provided an excellent service from quote to completion of job. He explained what was needed and had taken photos when inspecting so he could clearly show where the problems lay and once fixed, showed us more pictures of the completed work as well Bethany Frank

Prompt Emergency Response

This was an emergency call out following unfinished work by another trader where a hole was left in the roof and a large proportion of tiles had been removed. Peter attended very promptly and got it sorted for us. Wish we had got him from the start Rosie Mason
