Nick Rader grew up around his family’s lumber company. Like so many in the building industry, he learned his craft the old-fashioned way, by watching his grandfather and father build a steady, all-service lumber business through hard work and honest advice. Drawn to the service side of the industry, Nick started his insulation company in 2002 and has been steadily growing Rader’s Insulation ever since.
"I promised myself when I got started that Rader's would be known for three things: quality products, great service and affordable prices," Nick says. "It didn't take long to build good relationships with customers, but at first, our product line was limited." Like many insulation companies, Rader's offered only blown fiberglass. A product great for “spec” home building where cost is key. “Spec” homes are ones that are built in “speculation” of a buyer, therefore the builder will typically use the most inexpensive insulation in order to keep his selling cost down. This is compared to custom home builders, who usually provide their clients energy-saving options.
