“He wants everything to be 100 percent perfect on every job,” Morgan added. “Keith also serves as our back-up blown-in installer, so he’s highly knowledgeable and valuable at MCS.

Keith is a huge asset to MCS.
MCS Insulation installs batt, blown and spray foam.
The company is introducing a new product to the market BWS (Blown-in Wall System), a high-density insulation solution for commercial and residential building applications that delivers higher R-values than traditional insulation alternatives, saving customers on costly heating and cooling expenses.
The consistent density of the BWS helps reduce pathways for moisture, outdoor allergens, pollutants, and pests making a home more comfortable. A unique benefit about BWS is that it does not settle.
The process of placing a measured amount of dense-packed fiberglass blowing wool behind a dust-free fabric virtually eliminates settling. BWS is a formaldehyde-free, non-combustible, non-corrosive.
The need for insulation is growing in demand. MCS is opening a location in Hammond, LA. The company will be hiring an experienced blown-in installer and a fiberglass installer.

“This is what makes MCS Insulation the best! Our installers take pride in what they do. So much pride that multiple installers from our company have won national industry awards!” said Ricky Breazeale, Sales Representative/Business Development for MCS Insulation. Louisiana Division.
