I should begin this by saying that I have had some extremely negative experiences with contractors, and am very uneasy about hiring people to work on my home. I’m typically an avid/obsessive DIYer as a result, and I was reluctant to hire this work out, but could not have been happier with the result.
The Hayes Company recently did a complete attic restoration in my 1959 home. The previous owners had let it go and the attic was a mess. Excessive animal traffic and neglect had led to compressed, dirty insulation, and air sealing and soffit ventilation were non-existent. Hayes company did a great job of cleaning out the old insulation and debris, installing ventilation baffles, air sealing the entire attic, installing fireproof covers over all of the fixtures, and blowing in new insulation. I would say the work exhibited the same level of attention to detail that I as the homeowner would’ve applied, which is saying a lot. Ultimately, however, I have to say that the best part of this entire experience was the communication. Donnie, the Operations manager, responded to every question I had via email, text, or call, and I had a lot of them and I think it’s safe to say I’m a bit of a nit picker. Nonetheless, Donnie had an answer for everything and the work reflected a great understanding of everything I wanted done. All in all a great experience. If I hire this kind of work in the future (which is likely) I’ll go with The Hayes Co. without a second thought.
