Job Description

Base pay $13 but most jobs pay by piece work and can range from $13 to $45.

Job Duties:
-- Apply, remove, and repair insulation on industrial equipment, pipes, ductwork, or other mechanical systems such as heat exchangers, tanks, and vessels, to help control noise and maintain temperatures.
-- Cover, seal, or finish insulated surfaces or access holes with plastic covers, canvas strips, sealants, tape, cement or asphalt mastic.
-- Determine the amounts and types of insulation needed, and methods of installation, based on factors such as location, surface shape, and equipment use.
-- Fit insulation around obstructions, and shape insulating materials and protective coverings as required.
-- Install sheet metal around insulated pipes with screws in order to protect the insulation from weather conditions or physical damage.
-- Measure and cut insulation for covering surfaces, using tape measures, handsaws, knives, and scissors.
-- Prepare surfaces for insulation application by brushing or spreading on adhesives, cement, or asphalt, or by attaching metal pins to surfaces.
-- Read blueprints and specifications to determine job requirements.
-- Select appropriate insulation such as fiberglass, Styrofoam, or cork, based on the heat retaining or excluding characteristics of the material.
-- Distribute insulating materials evenly into small spaces within floors, ceilings, or walls, using blowers and hose attachments or cement mortar.
-- Fill blower hoppers with insulating materials.

Working hours: Various Day Shift Hours

Skills:
Requirements:
-- Must have Clean DMV Print
-- Must submit to drug and background screening
-- Dexterity. Insulation workers must be able to work in confined spaces while maintaining coordination and control of tools and materials. Also, insulators often must reach above their heads to fit and fasten insulation into place.
-- Mechanical skills. Insulation workers use a variety of hand and power tools to install insulation. Those who apply foam insulation, for example, must be able to operate a compressor and sprayer to spread the foam onto walls or across attics.
-- Physical stamina. Because insulators spend most of the day standing, stretching, and bending, workers should be able to stay physically active without getting tired.
