Haynes Insulation Celebrates 15 Years
The once two-person business is now the area’s only Owens Corning™ Certified Energy Expert®
NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C.—From a building with just two light bulbs to a state-of-the-art facility, Haynes Insulation has grown over the last 15 years.
“Our first truck was an old bread truck. Now we have a state of the art insulation warehouse, modern trucks and our installers are certified by Owens Corning™,” said Jim Haynes, president.
Haynes started the company in 2000, with his father, Hobert, in the Chickhaven Feed Mill. The business was a two-person operation at that time, but has now grown to over a half-dozen employees, serving Wilkes County, with plans to expand into Lenoir, Hickory, Statesville and the High Country.
“Our focus has always been on saving people money by installing the insulation they need in their home or business,” he said. Haynes Insulation has worked on more than 3,000 homes in the area, from small to large-scale residential insulation installation, repair and alteration projects. Haynes Insulation is the only business in Wilkes County with the Certified Energy Expert® distinction. As CEEs, they receive extensive training to insulate for the local climate as well as identify energy problems and solve them with Owens Corning™ products. “We are the only ones in the area able to offer a guaranteed combination of money-saving energy expertise and a 10-year warranty on products and installation. It’s the best warranty in the industry,” Haynes said.
Haynes employees have also been certified by the Building Performance Institute as Whole House Leakage Control Certified Installers, Certified Building Analysts and Envelope Professionals.
Among the newest products offered by Haynes are Owens Corning™ Ecotouch™ batt insulation, Quiet Zone sound attenuation batts, dense pack insulation for existing walls, and blown in blanket insulation for new home construction. Each product offers high R-Values, the measurement used to determine the efficiency of insulation. Haynes Insulation offers homeowners certified energy audits and free estimates.

“Our certified energy audit includes a blower check, which basically means we use a giant fan on your house to check for leaks,” Jim explained. The process helps the installers determine where the most air seeps into a house, so that they can tell customers which insulation is needed most.
Supporting the community has long been a philosophy of the Haynes family and the business. Haynes Insulation supports numerous charities, including Wilkes Rescue Squad, Mulberry-Fairplains Fire Department, Ebenezer’s Children’s Home and the Wilkes County Disc Golf Club. “We enjoy supporting the community that has supported us for these 15 years,” Haynes said.
