Janine Dunbar
Company Director/Owner

I was inspired by my family’s success in making a real difference in the Dunedin Insulation market over many years and decided I would bring this experience and know-how to insulating homes in the Wider South Canterbury /North Otago and Southland areas. January 2018 we opened in Cromwell after many requests, we are delighted to set up a team in Cromwell servicing the wider area. I have chosen these regions to invest in because of the special affinity I have found from working and living within them over the years.

I am really delighted to be able to bring you the real benefits of Environmentally Friendly Insulation at very affordable rates. We are based locally in each area allowing us to keep the overall costs down and provide personal yet professional hassle free service a cut above the rest.

Our Vision

“We are a family business looking after your family’s needs. We simply choose to make less profit without relying on subsidies and look after you so you can enjoy a healthier, drier, energy efficient home.” Everyday Affordable pricing with Hassle Free service and Eco Products means everybody wins! We are based locally in each region keeping the overall costs down. We don’t want to be another large faceless corporate. We like to keep our business at a level our relationships with clients and our staff are for life providing personal professional services.

Our Culture

I choose to look after my staff, we believe in work/life balance is key, especially for installers. I do not overwork people and believe this role is best along side other self employment so you do not burn out. I pay above market rates and it shows in happy staff who take a real pride in their work and are passionate about service.

It is not an easy job being an insulation installer, it is physically very hard on the body, claustrophobic and takes a certain type of person to excel in this industry. I am very fortunate to have great people on my team.  I only hire people with the right attitude who see the opportunity and grab it and make the very most out of it. If you are an experienced insulation installer please contact us.
