“Classic Insulation removed all of the old insulation in both my attic and crawl space and re-insulated both with more modern materials. In addition they put down a new vapor barrier in the crawl space.
I have had two other professional insulation people review the work and they both have said that it was one of the best professional jobs they had seen in a crawl space and attic. I have been very pleased with their work and the timeliness of the job. My house is over 35 years old. “
