Wow what a difference the foam insulation makes. Marc at GCS was a pleasure to deal with. He came to my house on the weekend to give me an estimate and it was very reasonable. They were on time, sprayed nice thick layer of foam in the ceilings and walls. I am very pleased with the outcome. I would definitely recommend GCS Spray foam.

I admit we were a bit tough to deal with since this is such a new concept to both my wife and me. Either way, after multiple estimates and several different opinions, GCS was able to help us make the proper decisions. And folks...we are talking an OVERNIGHT difference since our attic a d garage have been insulated. We appreciate all your hard work and will certainly recommend you guys to all my neighbors.

We were extremely pleased with GCS and their services and would recommend to anyone looking to retrofit their existing home. We are happy to give these folks a 5 star rating! Thank you again for a job well done guys.

When I selected Marc for the business it wasn't greeted with the normal "great." In fact, I got no response. I finally had to send an email with the subject line of "Are you still in business?" That got a response in 24 hours or less, finally. As we went through the initial look at the attic areas, he mentioned several times that he would include an updated thermostat or two for the house. Terrific! I know these aren't expensive and very nice offer, which I said yes to when I accepted GCS doing the foam work. The guys who did the work were fine. They worked hard and in very hot weather. However, it took myself and a handyman hours to get doors back on and caulking. When I asked Marc about a walk through - there were several areas that I wanted to make sure were covered prior to closing up - he said that he never does a walk through. He leaves doing the job right to the crew. OK I can only hope that all was done. I asked for documentation of the price I paid. That never came via email or otherwise. I'll use my canceled checks, thank you. The thermostats never appeared after I chased him for months and heard excuse after excuse ... and finally an assurance that it would be taken care of. Not taken care of folks. So, I'm over all of this but sharing my experience. Be aware! Spring, 2013

First of all, I got a quick response when I called - which meant a lot to me because I'm very busy and wanted to get my questions answered on my day off. Instead of getting an office person I talk to a very educated building science consultant. He answered all my questions and then some. I felt very confident with them. The technicians showed up on time and worked until it was done - they were friendly and professional. I noticed the difference in comfort right away. IT WAS FINALLY COOL!!! And our AC was barely running. WOW! I strongly recommend spray foam and GCS!

I was told it would take 1-1.5 days to finish the job. I specifically asked if they worked on Sunday as I was looking for them to start the job on Saturday. I was told they did. So, come Saturday (6/29), the first crew came out and sprayed the foam. They also sent someone to spray a thermal barrier. All were really nice and efficient. Unfortunately that was where the good experiences ended. Short version, cleaning crew never showed up. Took till Monday for them to start cleaning and Tuesday afternoon with significant pushing on my end for them to get the job down. A 1-1.5 day job turned into a 4, nearly a 5 day job. So, because of all the inconveniences, I was given a $100 discount. I took that in stride and I chalked it up to the owner being out of town. I'm a small business owner as well, and I know how things can fall apart when I'm not there. Well, a few days later (7/6) I noticed I was double-charged for the service. Short version, it is currently 7/19 (2 weeks later), my credit card is maxed out and I'm still waiting on the refund. I've been told multiple times the refund had been sent out, but was finally given a receipt on 7/17 showing they finally processed a refund on the 17th, 11 days after I notified them of the double charge. On the 19th, I'm still waiting for that refund to hit. Marc promised me an additional $50 for causing me to go over my credit limit, but I'm still waiting. Overall the job was eventually done well, but the service has been horrendous.

I met with several insulation companies for our project but as soon as I talked to Michael, I knew I was going to hire GCS. The whole process from bidding to completion has been professional and thorough. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

Michael just completed Spray Foam on our master suite attic rennovation. It was a pleasure to work with him and his crew. They are informed, careful, honest, did a great job, cleaned up, and prepped the area so nothing was harmed. Gave us a perfect job at a reasonable price. What more can you ask for. I wish everyone we worked with on our rennovation was this professional. Thanks for a great job GCS!!!!!!

After deciding on spray foam vs. standard blow-in insulation, I selected GCS for installation. Michael was very easy to schedule for a quote the price/service offering was better than the others I evaluated. The installation was scheduled within a week of contract signing and the guys started on-time and finished on-schedule. The improvement inside my house has been more than what I expected from a comfort and cost standpoint and I would recommend the solution for others in GA.

GCS was prompt, knowledgable, courteous and efficient. We had foam insulation installed 5 years ago by another company that has since gone out of business. I searched the web to find a co. that could repair a 10 in. hole in the foam that was made by a bird. GCS' installer found that the previously installed foam was less thick than is proper and that none of the vents had not been sealed and foamed. No wonder it was still hot/cold up there! Everything was corrected that day. Yes, we had to pay again, but the first foam application was nearly worthless before the corrections. Thank you, Marc, Robert and Juan.

This company offered a 10 year labor warranty to come out and fix any touch up areas where foam may have to be pulled out to run speaker wires or any other small repairs...I didn't think much about it but we unfortunately had a tree fall on our house and GCS was out within a week to touch up everything that needed it (and it was much more than just touch ups). I just wanted to thank Marc and his team once again....thx for all your help guys.

On May 31st, GCS Spray Foam Insulation sprayed under our wood floors throughout our house, creating an impermeable vapor barrier between our cellar and crawl spaces and the inside of our home. We were wanting a barrier from the mold down there as we had a water problem in the past, and the mold spores, whether dead or alive, were updrafting through our floor and causing all kinds of allergy problems. We had fiberglass insulation there at the time, and it is known to hold mold spores. Jamison came out to give us an estimate and was very polite, honest, and knowledgable. Their estimate was lower than three other contractors who came out. Their lead sprayer did a more than thorough job. He was very conscientious and went the extra mile to make sure it was done right and better. The foam stopped the mold from coming up and as a bonus, our AC doesn't run constantly anymore! It is amazing how our house actually stays cool and our AC comes on every now and then to maintain. We cannot wait to see how warm our house will be in the winter. We are very happy with our foam insulation, and it has felt so nice in our house for the past two months. Thank you GCS! We will definitely recommend you!
