What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Btw, it's simply amazing what a difference the basement insulation has made already. This morning I walked barefoot from the kitchen (over uninsulated crawlspace--always has a cold floor) into the dining room. The difference in floor temperature was startling.

    Jonathan, Norwich, VT
  • 10Q so much for "foaming" us.We are blown away by the incredible work. Your crew was equally kind and personable. We look forward to working with you again and will be showing our family our Foam Home at Thanksgiving. Thanks again

    Julie, Ludlow, VT
  • I can't tell you how pleased we are with the outcome of that huge roof project this Fall. It might have seemed a foolish expense and a waste to replace all those nice old boards and shingles, to end up with a roof that looked just the same as it did before.

    Tim & Kay, West Chesterfield, NH
  • Happy New Year to you both! Buddy and I just wanted to give you an update on our home since we had the insulation installed last summer. We are VERY pleased with how cozy the house is and are constantly amazed at the evenness of the temperature.

    Lynn & Buddy, WIndham, VT
  • Dear Willy and Crew, Thank you so very much for a job well done. We are proud and excited about the heating savings. You run a fine operation. Please let us know if you need a reference in the Brattleboro / Guilford area. We would be happy to provide one. Fondly, Richard and Ann-Marie

    Richard & Ann-Marie, Brattleboro, VT
  • As far as our dealings with Vermont Foam Insulation are concerned - they were good (very good).

    Sheila & Sam, Landgrove, VT
  • VFI did an insulation job for me last year in Wallingford, VT. Just have to say. WOW! What a difference! For the first time since we have owned the house the thermostat actually gets to the set temperature. We estimate we will save about $2600 on our heating bill alone this year!

    Scott & Wendy, Wallingford, VT
  • I cant believe how warm the bathroom on the new master side is and the powder room on the front of the house. What a difference! Thanks so much for your patience and hand holding throughout the process. The guys were hard working and respectful and a pleasure.

  • I waited until the coldest part of winter was over before giving this review. Improvement in heating and comfort was amazing. We no longer have 8 - 10 foot icicles on the back roof. The previous year the icicles were so large that when they crashed down they broke the deck railing.

    Peter M., Jamaica, VT
  • Your company was very professional and made the process quick and easy for us. We appreciate how neat and tidy you left the job and the quality of the work. We felt the difference in our home right away. Insulating our basement was a great investment.

    Shea S., Londonderry, VT
  • VFI did a great job at my house. We had an old drafty stone-walled basement - full height and crawlspaces. VFI covered the dirt-floored crawlspaces with a heavy-duty plastic we had found & foamed the basement walls from the sills down to the plastic vapor barrier. Made a huge difference.

    Stratton Mt., VT
  • ...We've been uncertain how we'll insulate the pony wall and the eaves, and had been considering wool insulation, regular fiberglass insulation, and blown cellulose. Now, Will is here to check out the house and tell us what he thinks about it being a candidate for foam.
