Insulation Installers - Wages & Trends

Because of the short-term nature of construction jobs, installers may have time off between jobs. This can reduce their earnings. Installers can also lose work during economic slowdowns, when jobs are not available.

Wages vary by employer and area of the country. In general, installers who belong to a union tend to earn higher wages. Installers in large cities also usually earn more. In addition, installers who do commercial and industrial work earn more than those who do residential work.

Insulation installers who work full time usually receive benefits. Typical benefits include sick leave, paid vacation, and health insurance.
