“For years we have been talking about installing wall insulation in our older home to make it warmer during the winter. We wanted to find a contractor that could not only do the work on time and on budget, but also shared our environmental values. We asked a few companies to come in to bid on the project, but ecoFAB was the only firm that really seemed to care about our environmental concerns. ecoFAB takes a holistic approach to home renewal. When they came to do their estimate, they not only took a look at our wall insulation problem, but also did an analysis of the entire home envelope; i.e. windows, roof insulation, door/window seals, at no extra charge. ecoFAB’s professional installers really know their stuff and care about doing the job right. They used environmentally friendly recycled materials and finished the project exactly as promised. They even did some extra weatherizing work at no charge. Best of all, we experienced immediate results. Our house is now warmer and less drafty, our heating bill went down and, unexpectedly, our home is now quieter because the wall insulation helps muffle out street noise. When it comes to sustainable remodeling, ecoFAB really ‘walks the walk.’ I highly recommend ecoFAB for all of your home renewal needs.”

I am a residential building designer and I highly recommend the services of EcoFab.
I hold a masters degree in Architecture and was recently certified as a sustainable home professional. Last year, while working toward professional certification, I undertook an assessment of the energy efficiency of my own home, which I had designed and built in 1999. Callie and Paul previewed my home. Paul wrote up a description of services, performed an energy audit and prepared a final report. The services agreement was clear, the audit was thorough and organized, and the final report provided me with a blueprint for energy improvements as well as benchmarks against which I could measure my results. I was especially impressed with Paul Holt’s willingness to teach me about his data collection methods and analytical tools. I will be consulting with EcoFab on future projects and recommending them to my clients.

We are delighted with the energy efficiency upgrade that ecoFAB did for our house. Our bedroom, that used to be freezing cold in the morning, is now toasty and comfortable. The drafts all over the house are gone, and the furnace is on a lot less this winter. The work was very affordable, especially with the incentives available through the Community Power Works program. From the initial energy assessment to the end of the job, Dave, Paul, Josh, Yirim and the crew used building science to save costs, and lower our heating bills.
We were especially impressed by the way the crew found affordable solutions to the air leak problems in the masonry around our fireplace. Quality training and professionalism showed in everything they did.
