  • RetroFoam of East Tennessee
    5.0
    I highly recommend Retrofoam; it works. If you have an older home and need to get it insulated, you have two options. 1. Remove the walls and add insulation. 2. Retrofoam We chose retro foam and are very pleased with our decision. Pros: Our home gets warm faster. Our home remains warm longer. Rooms that were once colder than others are the same temperature as the rest of the house. Wind drafts through the house eliminated. Wind drafts around windows eliminated. Outside noise, reduced significantly, I mean reduced by a lot. We can now sleep with no white noise. Amazing. Overall improvement on the quality of living, physically and audibly. Cons: The inside install is messy. (These guys try hard to minimize the mess) Outside install was much less hassle and messy. (The installers do a great job cleaning up their work area.) How It Works Retrofoam is mixed from powder and water. It has a similar consistency to shaving foam from a can. It is pumped into a void or cavity inside your wall, making its way around wires, plumbing, and other obstacles in the wall. It hardens and maintains its form and placement—the tiny air bubbles in the foam help create the insulating properties. It has a low odor when installed and is non-existent after a few days. Our Story Our house was built in the 1950s with no insulation. Our brick home was constructed with hollow walls and void cavities around all of the windows. Twice windows have been replaced, once to replace the original single-pane windows and the second time to replace some storm damaged windows. Each time the windows were replaced, no insulation was installed around the window frames, allowing wind to get into the home. Combining that with the hollow walls added years of expensive utility bills and uncomfortable living space. The house temperature was so unevenly controlled, we needed to wear jackets in one area and t-shirts in the next room. We are now remodeling our home. We need a way to insulate without removing all of the inside walls. After doing research, I found Retrofoam as an option. After meeting with Mr. Eddie Sanford, I quickly decided to install the Retrofoam in my house. Eddie made the process easy to understand and helped us devise a plan to prepare for the installation. Eddie's comprehensive strategy was quickly put into motion, and the process began. Our Retrofoam project included all of the exterior walls of the upstairs living space. Mostly brick with hollow walls and old school plaster walls inside. One smaller area, 10' x 6', was constructed of block and was filled with Retrofoam upstairs and downstairs. About 1/2 of the house was accessed from the inside and the other from the outside. The outdoor installation was much more manageable and cleaner for me as the homeowner. However, not all sections of the house could be accessed from the outside. When the installation crew arrived, Robert, George, and Brandon walked through my home. Robert discussed the approach and how the installation would proceed. Before beginning, they covered most everything with plastic and began drilling holes for the installation. The holes drilled into the inside walls are 2.5 inches allowing the large diameter hose to easily access the cavity. Holes from the outside are about the size of a dime. In our case, the outside holes were made through the mortar joints. The foam is pumped into the outer holes using a brass fitting and higher pressure to fill the cavities. After completion, the outside holes were plugged using mortar and drywall compound for the interior. After the foam was mixed, they brought in the hose and installation apparatus. The hose was inserted into a 2.5" hole in the inside wall. The foam was sprayed into each cavity between the studs. Working the foam into the wall cavity from the bottom up and then from the top down. During the installation, the foam can be heard filling the hole. The installation took roughly three days. The installation crew was courteous, careful, extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, humorous at times, and professional. Even with the typical mess that comes with construction projects, I truly enjoyed the crew's company. I found their work ethic to be top-notch. Upon completing the job, the crew chief Robert did a thorough inspection and cleanup then asked if I was satisfied. After the install, we noticed an immediate reduction in the outside road noise from passing traffic. So much reduction that we no longer use a fan for white noise in our bedroom at night. We also noticed that our house would hold heat much longer. The first night we set the heat to 62 before bed. The room temp was around 68 degrees; by morning, the temp was still 64, and the heat had not kicked on all night long. This is so uncommon; typically, the heat kicks on several times through the night. The two other areas we noticed immediately were the upstairs laundry room and downstairs bathroom. In the past, both rooms were noticeably colder than the rest of the house, requiring the use of small heaters. Now both rooms are the same temperature as the other rooms in the home. We are delighted with our decision to install the Retrofoam, and I am confident you will be too.

    The job went well; the workers were professional, competent, and helpful. the reason I don't feel as though I won't use them again is I believe they are overpriced. I asked for a quote on a second job and i found it to be extremely high to the point of being unreasonable. I asked for a better break down of the cost to evaluate it and received no response. I obtained a quote from another service that was considerably closer to what I felt the job should cost, a difference of over $1200.

    Mark was very helpful in developing a good scope of work for an unusual need. Basically, CRC built a small closet around a water heater in the attic for freeze protection. The construction was highly functional which is what I needed and they were very tidy making zero mess in the house. They are very busy so reach out to them early to get on their schedule!

    Mark is a master carpenter. My original design was with a sloped roof, Mark recommended that he would build an apex roof. It would have been so much easier to have built the sloped one but esthetically the apex roof looks fantastic. He is capable to do just about anything, including building a hip on a metal roof.

    The work went perfectly. Mark and his crew were wonderful to work with and have in our home for over a week. They were extremely careful of our furniture and belonging. They left the job site spotless upon completion. Their work was excellent and having just gone through the building process with a developer and builder our faith in quality workmanship was restored. We look forward to working with Mark and Custom Renovations as we continue to improve our home.

    Charlie was our main contact. He was very professional and pleasant. His attention to detail and explanations made us comfortable to go with the company for all the work. We had originally had a TVA (e-Score) inspection, and were trying to follow some of thier recommendations. The job was scheduled and lasted for 5 days. The crew of two workers was reliable. I like the fact that they send an email alerting you that they are on their way (most of them have pictures of the workers) We are very pleased with the results and highly recommend A-1 Certified Service.

    Pursuant to a TVA energy audit, we solicited bids from different firms listed on the TVA provider list. Charlie was the representative from A-1, and he couldn't have been more professional and helpful with any questions. We chose A-! to do the work, and the crew came out a few days later. Leo, David, and Jimmy were the workers who showed up on the day of service, and you couldn't find better ambassadors for the company. They were professional and perfectionists. After spending the day sealing up a poorly constructed attic. We couldn't be more pleased with A-1 and wouldn't hesitate to recommend A-1 to anybody needing this type of service.
