When awarding bids, homeowners and local weatherization agencies need to know that the contractor has the fundamental knowledge required to complete the work and do it well.  Not all contractors who build houses understand current weatherization practices.  As more money is invested in weatherization work, you are ideally positioned to expand your business.  image
