Our origins go back to general contracting over 30 years ago. We’ve done just about everything from building and remodeling houses to updating hotels across the country.

It Began with LeafGuard

In 1997 we were installing seamless gutter systems in the Erie area. In 1999 we began installing the LeafGuard gutter system in Northwest Pennsylvania and Western New York. From there, we branched into blown-in cellulose in 2001 as a way to provide much needed services to the homes in our area. We personally became aware of the magnitude of insufficient insulation when many of our LeafGuard customers realized they had serious ice problems. That lead us to search for more effective ways to help solve the cause of the heat loss with improved means for insulating and air sealing.

The Need for Product Options

As our knowledge of how to properly insulate buildings advanced we brought on more and more insulation options. The nonexpanding Air Krete products came on board in 2002. When they said it couldn’t be done  we developed techniques for installing this cementitious foam in brick homes from the exterior. In fact we’ve installed more Air Krete than anyone else in the world!

In 2003, we began to use expanding spray foam and soon added a second spray rig to satisfy more homeowners throughout the area. No other insulation company provides the options, knowledge or experience that we provide. The Bauer Specialty staff has accumulated over 700 hours of home performance training.

Experienced with What We Do

We have insulated thousands of homes, along with multiple schools and businesses. As a result, we’ve saved our customers millions of dollars in what would have been wasted heating and cooling energy. In addition to the monetary savings, we’ve helped reduce literally tons of carbon and other harmful pollutants from harming the environment.

Our knowledge, joined with our extensive experience enables us to insulate your project the right way. We pride ourselves on helping you meet your energy saving and comfort needs. Thank you for the opportunity.
