Having built us a custom kitchen some years back, I didn’t think twice before calling him to come do some energy efficiency work on my aging cape. After conducting a thorough and (extremely) informative energy audit, Bob assessed that the most cost-effective improvements I could make would be some simple air sealing and improved attic insulation — he didn’t try to sell any expensive windows or talk me into having work done that didn’t need to be done. After making the recommended improvements (which were quick and affordable), I can already feel the difference in my home. It’s more comfortable, less drafty, and although it’s still early to say for certain, I’m almost certain my heating bills will be seeing a significant decrease. I highly recommend Bob Mariani for any type of remodeling-related work, whether it has to do with kitchens, energy efficiency, or something entirely different. He’s a real pro.
- Setting up another project.We are finishing the basement, master bath, custom woodworking and many electrical upgrades for a couple just arriving from Sweden. Because they are energy conscious we did an energy audit and insulated the rim joists, walls and attic. European light fixtures were rewired to handle American connections and all bulbs were replaced with LEDs
- Basement improvements - We insulated, repaired everything. The basement was a mess. It was cleared, floors and walls grinded down and waterproofed and painted. The home was sold above the asking price in three days. (“ We love the basement” ) was the common comment.This project is part of our First Impressions department. The house was to be sold.
- Ceiling and walls are netted and dense-packed with cellulose. This eliminates vermin, mold, deadens sound transmission by 80% and reduces heat transfer 100% better than fiberglass. A house with all cellulose insulation can get a 5% deduction on their insurance since the home is fire proof.Ceiling and walls
