Insulation companies
 
Looking for an insulation company to quote (and complete) an insulation job on Bear Island in the next week or two. Will be using rockwool and fiberglass, no spray foam. We can provide transportation.

Quality is booked out and Superior hasn't returned a call. Any others up there?

Superior in Tamworth is their local insulation company, and unfortunately hasn't returned a call.

No disrespect but trying to book any contractor for anything under 6 months to a year or longer in this building/construction market is wishful thinking, in my opinion.
My suggestion would be to get friends/family together for an insulation party and get it done. That said, I wish you luck!

Got a some quotes in the spring to insulate my garage walls, all around $2000. I did it myself in a weekend for $400.

I have had great luck so far in getting contractors on board for short turns on this project. For instance I am booking a metal roof tomorrow from a popular local company that claimed to be booked out until spring, but when asked they said that they could squeeze me in with a 2-3 week turnaround.

All of the masons in the area were booked out until spring and quoting ridiculous prices. I found one on facebook out of Milton, NH that had a gap in their schedule and started immediately at a reasonable price. They were a larger organization, not a one man shop. The fireplace came out amazing and was less than half what I was quoted by a local company.

Insulation jobs are pretty quick and its not a big project. Hoping to find someone that can squeeze it in, but I already have a backup plan in place. My contractors can certainly do it, but I think an actual insulation contractor can do it more efficiently and at a better price.

Problem solved. Superior quoted Monday and completed the work today.
