I live in New England, New Hampshire, to be specific, and I just don't get the lack of seriousness about weatherization and credentials here. I'm BPI Certified Building Analyst and Envelope Specialist, have taken the Resnet Energy Smart Contractor test, have OSHA 10, lead certified renovator, the list goes on and on. Means nothing here. Area contractors insulate to be just good enough and nothing more. I can't tell you how many times that I have gone to a new construction job and have been told to not waste the time with air sealing the attic before insulating! Bidding wars between contractors have created a "trunk slammer" mentality and large corporate owners have a heavy hand on the bottom line. No one wants to step up and be better than the rest. There are really only 3 companies here and all are the same. Get it done quick and move on. Exasperating, to say the least. After 15 years in an industry that I truly love and have devoted so much time and effort to help raise the bar, I am seriously considering retiring.
