Signed up for a free estimate at a local home show in order to get "half off installation costs". For 500 square feet, the estimate was $33,000!! When pressed for the discount, we were told it was $1500. So basically, the salesperson is saying the total labor cost is only $3000. Really? They also say you will realize 92% of the cost in the improved value of your home. Certainly not in the... Read more

I was going to try them, and after reading these posts I am thankful they never showed up to my house. (and understand why financing was so concerning to them) Appointment postponed due to large demand after some show event in Minnesota.(I guess I was not as importand as the other customers) Got 5 calls asking same questions: what was I planning to build, how long had I been in my house...they...

Owens Corning makes some very good products but the basement system is going to destroy their brand (if it has not already done so). If you are considering the basement system, RUN! They tell everyone that they are looking for a demo site and offering a super discount. Not true! Once you contact them, they continue to inundate you with phone calls, even if you request that you be on a no-call... Read more

I purchased two Garage Door Insulation Kits back in Julythat came with plastic clips to hold the panels in place. Some of the clips broke during installation and since installation. The panels are now sagging all I've had to resort to using fishing line to hold them in place. I've e-mailed Owens Corning at least 3-4 times and at first they said they would send me more clips. I never... Read more

I have this system in my basement and I would NEVER recommend it. I put the walls up in my finished basement because I was told that if they ever got wet, the walls would dry quickly and end up looking like new. I recently got 6 inches of rain water in my basement due to a flood. It took 2-3 weeks for the walls to dry, the insulation has still not returned to it's original form so it looks... Read more

Do not trust high pressure Owen Corning basement salesment!!! They stop in your home during dinner hour to pitch their basement finishing system. What appeared to be a well rehearsed sales routine for apparently a fine product became a three hour interuption of our dinner plans (while we were cooking!). My wife and I are colledge educated and think of ourselves as above average thinkers. But... Read more

I have to say that if you want a nice finish, do not use this system. For what you get and the price, you pay, you can get a better finished product. We had it installed 2 years ago for my grandchildren to enjoy it. The biggest problem is that insects, rodents etc., can get through the spaces, especially if the workmanship was not good. Also, the material was poorly installed and the project... Read more

The policy for Owens Corning sales people is to add any give away,big screen TV or $1000. debit card, to the price charged to the customer. That would make it a purchase not a give away. The are also authorized to discount up to 27% off the list price which is very high because there is no competition on this product. If you want the Owens Corning system it can only be purchased from Lynn-T... Read more
