“Better World Builders was great! They listened to my concerns about difficulty maintaining temperature in my home, and worked with me to address the unique challenges my home presents. Not a 1 solution fits all company, they worked to solve issues other contractors wouldn't even quote me on. Very responsive to concerns that came up as the work progressed and I am pleased with the results. I would reccomend BwB to anyone looking for energy savings”

“When we moved into our new home it was drafty and cold. We almost replaced a bunch of expensive windows, but decided to have a BWB perform a blower door test first. The test data showed that our windows were fine, but that we had several areas with poor insulation and air sealing. BWB prepared a three tiered approach to improve the home, and identified approximate energy savings for each tier.

After completing the first tier, which included spray foam insulation and air sealing, we saw a 30-35% reduction in our blower door test air leakage values. Incredible.

The crew that completed the work was professional and treated our home with care and respect. The work was completed on time and they went the extra mile in a few areas.

I highly recommend better world builders.”

“Better World Builders has been wonderful to work with. Their team always responds to us with speed, thoroughness, patience, competence, and friendliness.

Shawn and Issac came all the way to Buchanan to perform an extensive energy audit this fall on our old 1930s house with 1950s and 1990s additions. Their reporting on the problems, the data, and potential improvements was clear and detailed. It is a great baseline for later confirming that the improvements succeeded.

They go above and beyond to answer all of our questions and to address any concerns. With my background in architecture and affordable multifamily development, my questions are many and deep diving. Fortunately, Mark and Shawn respond promptly and patiently to them all as we plan the improvements together. It is clear to me that they understand this field of work, they respect the homes, and they care about their customers. I am grateful to have connected with the Better World Builders team.”

“I can’t say enough about BWB. They were incredibly responsive to my initial inquiry. The two guys they sent out to do my home energy audit were professional and had the air of competence that puts you at ease. The results of the audit caught some more obscure details I’d already learned in the past 5 years so that was great to see, and they put together a mutli-tier plan of action to address the needs of my house from most important to stuff to think about down the road. These guys are good and they do it all, too, so your needs can be handled by one company. You can’t go wrong.”
