Coastal Insulation

Title: Founder & President

Steven Schwartz from Coastal Insulation

In the summer of 1975, Steven Schwartz launched his company, Coastal Insulation Corporation, with just one installer, one van, and one salesman - himself. His new business coincided with the birth of his daughter, Dana, and three months later, he acquired his first housing development: Dana Estates.

 

Steven has always been interested in business. After graduating in Finance from the University of Akron in 1969, he quickly found work in the industry with a drywall contractor, building up experience before starting his own company. 

 

Over the past forty years, Coastal has grown on an upward trajectory to over 175 employees. The original central New Jersey territory has expanded throughout the state, and also includes New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. 

 

In 2007 the company moved to a newly constructed building located in East Windsor, New Jersey. Etched on the interior door is a motto Steven coined himself, based on the deep value he places on employees and working together as a team: 

 

“Motivated personnel with positive attitudes, working toward a common goal, cannot be substituted for any other resource.”

 

For the past 17 years, Coastal celebrates its personnel at a company-wide picnic, where employees and their families enjoy the day together. For Steven, this gathering of hundreds of families represents the true meaning of success.

    After meeting Paul at a social event, I took his card. After I contacted him, he showed me ways to get a rebate and financing on my project. Not only was the work good, but I got a rebate I had no idea even existed for insulation from the state of NJ!!!

    fantastic service, salesman(James Pulver) was the most professional sales person we had interviewed. Follow up at every point in the process and called the next day to make sure it all went well. Installers were very concerned with cleaning up and keeping our house as clean as possible during the installation. Could not be more happy with everythhing

    Air Sealing and Cellulose Insulation in Sewell, NJ

    This attic in Sewell, NJ had very poorly insulated walls. They were rather bare and needed our help. When an attic is poorly insulated, hot and cold air disperses unevenly through the house. This can make the homeowners extremely uncomfortable in their own house.

    We installed Tru-Soft cellulose insulation, which can be installed over the already-there insulation. Our cellulose insulation is sprayed in the desired area, creating a more efficient thermal barrier than other types of insulation. It rids the annoyance of leaks and gaps in the insulation because of its flexibility and expanding properties. 

    This attic is now sealed... and better yet- saves the owner money on energy bills in the long-run!

    Air Sealing & Insulation in Williamstown, NJ

    Before you insulate your home, it is important to air seal the leaks prior to blowing in the insulation. This Williamstown, NJ homeowner had can lights wired through their attic. Can lights are one of the biggest culprits when locating air leaks in the attic. Conditioned air in the summer, or warmed air in the winter, can leave the room below the attic through these openings near the lights. Not only is the homeowner losing conditioned air, but they are also losing money on their energy bill. 

    We sealed these spaces in the attic prior to insulating for the most effective results. The customer has been extremely pleased with the insulation so far! Hopefully, once winter comes, they will notice a huge difference in their energy bill compared to last year!

    Fiberglass Batts Installed in New Monroe, NJ Home

    This home in Monroe, NJ home was recently built. It was bare without any walls yet - mostly just the frame! However, before this family can get to painting walls and decorating their new home, they need insulation.

    When it comes to insulating your home, you want to make sure you pick the right insulation for your needs. Some people choose Spray Foam insulation and some Rigid insulation. It is good to assess what is best for your home depending on your location and personal preferences. This homeowner was pleased with their choice and happy to move forward in building their home!
