  • Brought a 1913 house up to modern insulation standards with spray foam and blown cellulose. They were very responsive to my feedback. Would work with them again.

  • AEI is wonderful to work with, this is my 3rd project with them (insulation and bathroom remodel done previously.) Brayden is responsive and easy to work with. Any issues that arrose we're taken care of with alacrity. Chris did amazing work (my kitchen started out looking like a 50's throwback and now looks like it belongs in this decade!) and made sure we were happy every step of the way. Highly recommend!
