Sunlight Contractors Spray Foam was outstanding. We renovated an old house in New Orleans and the original spray foam insulation was very poorly done. We did not realize it until we had HVAC problems and were told that there were multiple gaps, no fresh air return and about half the thickness of foam that should have been used. We called Sunlight and several other spray foam contractors to look at it and give us an estimate to do the job right. Sunlight was the most professional and communicated with us about the problems and their proposed solution. They finished the job by increasing the insulation and all of the other problems for less than the other contractors. They were in and out of the house in half a day and follow up with calls and checks of the house seal, fresh air line and attic fan. Outstanding company and would highly recommend. We should have contracted with them in the first place.

Absolutely extraordinary service! I contacted Sunlight Contractors when I had a leaky roof in my rental property that caused mold. They were very fair with pricing and took care of the repairs in a very timely fashion. If you are searching for contractors for your home repair/improvement needs, look no further.

My husband and I recently purchased a raised home. During the winter we experienced cold floors and high energy bills due to the subfloor not being insulated. We did research and learned spray foam would be the most effective insulation solution. Because it was a big project, we requested quotes from several companies. Sunlight Contractors was way better than any other company we talked to for several reasons. Ira, on the first phone call was very helpful and knowledgeable. Clayton came out and inspected our subfloor the very next day. He discovered very high and problematic moisture levels in our subfloor. I knew this was a serious issue because the previous owners disclosed they had mold removed prior to selling the home. Clayton and Ira explained the process Sunlight Contractors would use to eliminate the moisture, insulate the home, and guarantee we would never have a moisture problem again. No other company was able to make such a promise or provide a method to eliminate moisture, making it a no brainer to choose Sunlight Contractors. Everything was put in writing. When work began, the crew was on time or early every day. By far some of the best service from a contractor we ever recieved. We recommend Sunlight Contractors for all moisture remediation and spray foam insulation needs.

After having a full winter of cold floors and high energy bills in my newly purchased house I decided enough was enough and to get spray foam insulation. I contacted several companies for quotes. Sunlight Comtractors won my business for several reasons. They were very prompt in coming out to assess my home. When they came out for an estimate, Clayton discovered very high moisture levels under my home that needed to be remedied before spray foam could be applied. Clayton and Ira both explained and put in writing the approach that would be taken both to eliminate the moisture and insulate the subfloor. They promised I would never have a moisture problem again None of the other companies that I received quotes from had a legitimate method to solve the moisture problem. On top of that, Sunlight Contractors beat all of their insulation quotes. When it was time to start work, the crew was their well before the scheduled time ready to get started. I highly recommend Sunlight Contractors for their expertise and professionalism.

Selected this company to spray closed cell foam insulation in order to seal and properly insulate it. I did a lot of research of possible vendors that provides this service. However, Sunlight Contractors was the only one that was licensed and insured, trained and experience in my type of application and has the specialized equipment to do the job correctly. They were very affordable.

If you are looking for someone who is a leader in open or closed cell foam. Cal them, it was the best decision I made. You will never meet a better professional staff, from day one, surveying the job, high quality of work, and to the follow-up after the service

This company is very professional, an they stress their licensing and bonding and their technical understanding of the insulation business. They showed up on time for all appointments, did the work quickly and completely, with a minimum of hassle.

The results are that my house, a 110 year-old shotgun double camelback, is warmer during this cold snap, and the furnace is set off much less frequently. I'm sure my heating bills will be much less this winter.

My first contact was very pleasant. They were very knowledgeable of their products and showed great respect for my property. I compared other companies from other customers and gained information on those companies but Sunlight showed the most professionalism and they appeared to be well established. Overall, what made me choose Sunlight over others was the quality of their products and the amount of information they provided me with. The crew was very honorable and they did a very good job on the installation. They were very neat and cleaned up every little thing they left. This company explained everything in detail to me before it was done. I would tell any future customer that this company is the most complete and professional company, and no one other than them would be best for the job. Highly Satisfied!

Honestly, I had gotten on Angies List and called the person with the most & best reviews (which at the time was not Sunlight Contractors) and had them come out to give me a quote. The guy came out, and I was surprised when he didnt even get in the attic. He told me he would measure it from the outside. He wasnt here very long and was a nice enough guy. I actually had to call him several times after that to actually get the quote from him.

So I got back on Angies list and went to the next guys on the list which was Sunlight Contractors. I set up the meeting time with them. The difference in how Sunlight dealt with me as a perspective customer compared to the first guy was night and day. The same day that I set up the inspection appointment they emailed me a fact sheet on spray foam insulation and some web links on places that I could go to get more information about the type of spray foam that should be used in residential homes. I felt much more prepared after that. They also sent copies of their insurance and licenses that they held which I thought reassuring especially since they were being so upfront with it all. It felt like they didnt have anything to hide. Alan showed up on time and was extremely polite. He got up in the attic and when he came down, he not only explained to me what he thought we needed to do up there for insulation but he also pointed out some issues with our electrical that I didnt even know we had, which I really appreciated. He went to his car for about 15 mins and came back with the quote printed up in his hand. I didnt have to wait long at all and the quote was very detailed which was very nice to see.

When the installers came out to spray the foam, they showed up on time and were very polite. They explained to me what they needed as far as access to the attic and away they went. The process took about 6 hours all together. After watching those guys work I am super glad I didnt try and tackle that job myself. It is true what they say. Insulation is a young mans game. After they were done they cleaned up after themselves and didnt leave a mess anywhere.

I could tell the difference right away in the temperature in our house. We didnt have hardly any insulation up in our attic so it was real difficult to keep the whole house one temperature without a bunch of fans. Now we dont have any fans on all day long and the whole house stays an even 70° - 72°. I am super excited to see how much money we will be saving this summer!

I couldnt be more pleased with Sunlight Contractors. I highly recommend them!

I’m a building contractor and I renovate homes. I have a lot of experience with home building. I researched Sunlight Contractors and was very impressed with their licenses and certifications throughout the construction industry. I asked them to rearrange their schedule so I could get a sub floor spray foamed for one of my customers that I had a deadline to meet.
I told Sunlight Contractors the job was 1350 square feet and they gave me a price over the phone. I accepted and Sunlight Contractors sent me the contract and I agreed on all the terms and they came out today and inspected the job.
To my surprise the owner Corey Yates re measured the job and told me I was off by 150 square feet and he reduced the payment accordingly. They are not only a professional company but an honest one also. The job came out great and we will use Sunlight Contractors on all our jobs.

I contacted Sunlight because of the strong mildew odor in the house we just purchased. I have a particularly small crawl space and was impressed they were able to get under the house to offer a quote and subsequently perform the job. Their representative Ira was excellent to work with as were the young men that performed the actual service. Everyone was professional and friendly. The gentlemen performing the service were courteous and cleaned up after themselves when they were finished.

The odor is gone! Excellent Job.

Sunlight contractors provided spray foam insulation in the attic and below the floors in an old single-family shotgun home that was always too hot or too cold.

It is a rental house and there was constant tenant turnover because the utility bills were too high and the place was uncomfortable. Through the summer, the thermostat was set at 73 or 74 and the temperature in the house stayed in the 80s.

I tried to fix the problem on my own by blowing in cellulose insulation twice, adding a radiant barrier in the attic, weatherstripping doors and sealing ductwork. I even had Entergy perform an audit on the electric meter. Nothing worked so I cut the rent to help with the high bills.

Alan came out to perform an energy audit on the house and quoted me for the spray foam insulation. I waited several months hoping my remedies would work but they did not. I decided to take one last shot at fixing the problem by calling Alan back to foam the house. So far, the house temp stays in line with the thermostat and now the attic even stays in the 80s. Problem finally solved!

No one wants a high turnover rate as a renter. Its not good business, and we understand good business. Thank you so much for this great review. We are so happy we finally solved your problem that must of been so frustrating. No more unhappy tenants means good things for you. Sunlight prides themselves on lowering your energy bills and we love that we helped a local business man.

I recently moved into the home that I was raised in and, as expected with any older home, I had many issues to address. I had a new a/c unit installed; however, the temperature in the home always exceeded the temperature set on the thermostat. I eventually learned that the insulation in my attic was insufficient and partially to blame for my cooling issues. I found myself in need of an insulation company. I asked around and a friend located Sunlight Contractors, LLC on Angie's List. I called other companies as well to ensure I received the best deal at the best price. The initial quote from Sunlight Contractors was above my budget; however, Ira advised me of a more affordable option. Ira's professionalism, the business' reputation, and the fact that Ira provided videos and documentation to ensure I was well informed of the various services the company offers, made my decision to choose Sunlight Contractors a "no brainer". I had my service completed and the company exceeded my expectations!!!! Though the insulation has decreased the temperature in my home, I've continued to have cooling issues (unrelated to the attic insulation). Sunlight Contractors has gone ABOVE AND BEYOND to ensure I'm satisfied and comfortable in my home. They even came out to work with my a/c repairman to conduct thermal imaging in an effort to identify and resolve the matter. I feel like I'm apart of the Sunlight Contractors family, and I recommend this outstanding company to any business or home owner in need of insulation/energy saving services! There's no need to look further. I am a witness that you will receive quality work at an affordable price and the BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE around!!!! Don't wait....call them now!

Applied Spray foam insulation to the bottom of my roof deck and gables, sealed the perimeter of my ceiling in the attic.
Fantastic!!! They were on time and worked 5-6 hrs. Nonstop! Totally cleaned up after they completed, they were very responsive and took care of my home like if it was their own, showed a lot of respect for my property! Corey Yates was a pleasure to talk to, answered my question without any hesitation, a true well knowledge professional! Kudos to the whole team, they worked like a well-oiled machine!
The main reason that I used Sun light Contractors, LLC was making the deal with Mr. Ira Bosh he has been a great person and a pleasure to deal with, very forthright and honest with me at all times.

I have been absolutely blown away by my experience with Sunlight Contractors. From the very moment I called, Ira was helpful, responsive, and easy to talk to. After our first conversation he sent me all kinds of videos that educated me on exactly what was going on in my house and why it was losing so much heat in the winter and cool air in the winter.

I cannot tell you what it was a relief to find someone who was an expert in this field, that I could trust to guide me in the right direction. I shopped around for a couple quotes and Sunlight was on par—if not less than—other contractors that weren’t nearly as pleasant to work with or as knowledgable in their field.

Because I work at home I was in an extra hurry to get the work done and Ira bent over backwards to make sure it got on their schedule as quickly as possible. When his team arrived they were friendly, informative, and considerate and dare I say even fun to be around. They did what’s called a blower test and walked me around the house showing me where exactly all the air leaks are and giving me tips on how to improve things not even related to the work they were doing!

I’ve only had my spray foam attic installed today, so this glowing review is speaking to how awesome the Sunlight team is, without even having first hand experience with their product!! I’ll make sure to update my review once I’ve lived with my new roof for a few weeks but all signs point to me absolutely loving it.

If you are miserable in your house, and confused or frustrated about what to do about it, CALL THEM NOW and at least understand your options. They are great at educating newbie home owners like me without any sales pressure whatsoever.

Thank you Sunlight!

Highly recommend Sunlight

I contacted Sunlight because my A/C constantly ran and would never shut off
during the day. In fact it wouldn't catch up till around 2 or 3:00 in the
morning. Ira sent me a lot of info and videos that were very helpful and Corey
came out and gave me an estimate that I was very pleased with. I decided to go
with the open foam insulation on the underside of my roof. On the morning of
the job when Alan and his crew showed up he explained to me everything they were going to be doing. They even covered up all of my stuff in the attic for me so they
wouldn't get any overspray on it. When they were finished they cleaned up so well
that I couldn't even tell they were ever there. Needless to say I am very happy
with the work that was performed. My A/C now runs a lot less. Can't wait to see
how much of a difference it makes on my electric bill. Ira and his staff are very professional and very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Sunlight to anyone who needs this type of work done.

Working with Sunlight Contractors has been THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD!!!

That statement is not an exaggeration in the slightest. From Start to finish they followed through on everything they said that they would do, their communication was excellent. The same day that I received the quote I also received an email with their proof of insurance, and a very thorough explanation of the material that they use. I felt much more informed about what I was purchasing and who I was purchasing it from.

Lets talk about the extra mile - About a 5 months after the spray foam was installed in my house. I had a plumbing issue that flooded my master bedroom (not at all related to the spray foam insulation). I called Ira at Sunlight Contractors to see if any of the work that I needed done could be done through Sunlight Contractors because of how excellent their service was with the spray foam. Ira told me that he currently didn't hold the specific Licenses to conduct the work I needed. But he did send two of his guys over to my house that same day to help me move furniture that would have been damaged if they stayed where they were.

Sunlight Contractors has made a loyal customer out of me. If there is something that I need done at my home or my place of business I will always call Sunlight Contractors first before anyone else. They are by far the best, not just because they do good work but because they care about their clients!

Give them the chance to make a loyal customer out of you. I promise they wont let you down!

I was very please with my experience with Sunlight Contractors. They offered me a wealth of information beforehand about the spray foam insulation that I wanted for my attic. They came out to discuss my project and answer my questions. They gave me a competitive price.

When they came to do the job, they stated by doing a door blower test to see exactly how much air was leaking from my house. After the project was complete, they performed the test again, which showed a substantial reduction in leakage.

They were very professional throughout the process, and cleaned up nicely afterwards. I would highly recommend this company.

Tulane University's rowing team needed a dock that was close to the water to allow an easy launch and retrieval of their boats. I designed a plan and Sunlight Contractors came to my location and sprayed 6" of closed cell spray foam to the underneath of platform.

Over a year later, the dock is floating just as it did on day one, 6" on top of the water!

Tulane's crew coach told me it's the nicest dock system they've used! He then went on to say it's nicer than Harvard's floating dock system, it's super easy for the launch and retrieval of their boats!

The past few months have probably been the most difficult and stressful time of my life. My youngest son was born with a rare congenital disorder called agenesis of the corpus callosum. The affects of this disorder can range from virtually asymptomatic to severe neurological disabilities. The last thing I needed was to discover an extensive moisture and mold problem growing under the subfloor of my home. My husband searched for a company with stellar reviews and decided upon Sunlight Contractors. After dealing with this company I can understand why they have so many rave reviews. Clayton and his crew were out the next day pulling down insulation, remediating the mold and drying out the subfloor. Unfortunately, because the mold and moisture problem had been neglected for so long by the previous owner, all our flooring would need to be replaced. The flooring expert came out that night measuring how much we’d need and began demo within 3 days of his initial visit. Sunlight Contractors have been professional, fast and fairly priced. They have made what is a very stressful time in my life so much easier and I am very grateful. They’ve allowed me to focus on my family and not have to worry about my house. I know my house is in good hands.
