October 14, 2008 // Franchising.com // USA Insulation recently opened new offices in both the Greater Scranton & Pittsburgh areas of Pennsylvania. These additional locations were established to meet the needs of homeowners who are interested in improving comfort, savings and energy efficiency in their older homes.
USA Insulation was established in 1977 and incorporated in 1985. Since its inception, the company has grown into one of the leading residential insulation companies in the United States. The company hopes to bring its proven business model and unique product to the Northeast, Midwest and the South, where seasonal weather is more extreme.
"These franchisees are taking advantage of a rare opportunity: a unique product for a virtually untapped market", says USA Insulation Franchise Corporation President, Patrick Pitrone. "With a large number of homeowners currently seeking lower utility bills and improved energy efficiency, the residential retrofit insulation market is growing rapidly."
As 'going green' becomes more commonplace, a larger number of environmentally conscious consumers are turning to USA Insulation to create energy-efficient homes. USA premium foam is a green insulation product that emits no CFCs or VOCs.
"The Pennsylvania insulation market has great potential", says Pitrone, "especially in areas with older homes that are lacking the proper level of insulation".
By current minimum standards, more than 65 percent of American homes are not sufficiently insulated. Only 20 percent of American homes built before 1980 are considered to be effectively insulated. Homes built prior to 1975 often have no insulation at all.
USA Insulation franchise owners are provided benefits that include exclusive territories, comprehensive training, and continuous, personalized corporate support. Exclusivity is intended to work to the franchisee's advantage, as established insulation franchise owners can mentor and advise newcomers without a competitive conflict.
"With a high quality product and a proven installation process, franchise owners are starting out in a strong position", says Pitrone. Additionally, the company offers its franchisees the exclusive use of trademarks and logos, local store marketing materials, estimation and pricing software, and preferred business vendor discounts.
With concerns over rising utility costs, energy efficiency, and extreme weather conditions, USA Insulation has become an increasingly popular franchise investment.
