TAP® is Carbon Negative
Construction is among the leading industries/activities contributing the largest carbon footprint.
Designers and builders could realistically move to implement this type of zero up-front carbon building with few impediments, and, in doing so, dramatically alter the embodied carbon emissions of the building industry, bringing residential UEC climate impacts close to zero.
UEC—Up-Front Embodied Carbon: the emissions arising from the harvesting, manufacturing, and transportation of building materials.
The same building can have very different up-front embodied carbon emissions (UEC).

The TAP® Turnkey Program
The TAP® Programs & Expectations
We will schedule a Zoom call to discuss the TAP® Programs, potential sales, material requirements, and expectations preparing to launch the program. Meetings can take 30 to 60 minutes depending on the questions. These meetings are designed for your company’s management team to evaluate and determine if the TAP® Pest Control Insulation Program makes sense to participation in. Contact a member of our sales team to set up a call:
Chris White (770) 533-2945 | cwhite@TAPinsulation.com
Stephens Brown (770) 561-3090 | sbrown@TAPinsulation.com
Purchase the Sales Kit, Equipment, TAP®, and Ancillary Products or Use an Approved PCI Subcontractor
The TAP® Sales Kit contains essential tools for the TAP® Salesperson. The sales kit is ideal for marketing your new TAP® Pest Control Insulation service offering to your customers. Each sales kit comes complete with everything you need to get started. Many of the items included in the kit will be used during sales training.
PCI works exclusively with Krendl Machine Company, who has over 60 years of experience manufacturing insulation equipment. Viewed as the leader in insulation blowing equipment, Krendl manufactures dependable, long-lasting insulation blowers and vacuums. Participating PMPs will also be required to purchase a minimum of two (2) pallets of TAP® Pest Control Insulation (enough for 1-2 jobs) and a supply of ancillary products to be used to prep the attics prior to installation.
All insulation vacuum packages include everything needed to complete your first job:
Krendl GV240XT Vacuum*—Removes all types of insulation, including batts
Ancillary products are used to prepare the attic prior to installation and include the TAPcover Recessed Light Covers, JoistMate Attic Safety Platforms, Vacuum Bags, Baffles, HatchMaster Attic Stairway Covers, and Attic Rulers.
Develop a Rate Card, Work Order, Attic Graph, Homeowner Contract, and Workflow Process to Address Scheduling, Material Requirements, and Installation
Once you have the equipment and materials to do your first job, we will send you the templates to help you set up the rate card, work order, attic graph, homeowner contract, and workflow process to address scheduling, material requirements, and installation.
PCI has designed a template to help you develop a rate card for your TAP® Pest Control Insulation services. Utilizing your actual landed material costs, labor costs, and other job-related costs, we can help you determine what you should charge for the service. We even developed a rate card that is easy to use for your team so there is no confusion.
PCI has a template work order you can use as-is or customize for your company. The work order us used to make sure you are capturing the details needed for a successful TAP® Pest Control Insulation job. The work order is designed to help the installer understand what the job entails so they know what to bring to the job site and understand any details. The attic graph also works in this manner.
PCI has developed an attic graph to help not only your customers understand what is going on in the attic, but the technician to understand what they are walking into so they can properly prepare. This graph can be used as-is or to help customize the graphs you may already be using.
PCI has a template contract for homeowners that can be customized for your company. The contract covers all of the important information about the installation. You can use parts of it on your own contract or use the template and change the company to yours.
It is very important to have a workflow process prior to launching the program, especially if you are using a subcontractor. Without a defined process, customers and salespeople can get lost in the process and become frustrated. In fact, TAP® programs that fail are usually because of the lack of defined workflow process. We will work with you to develop the process that answers questions such as:
- What paperwork is required when a sale is complete?
- How does that paperwork get transferred and to whom does it go?
- Who schedules the job?
- Who makes sure the correct materials are on hand?
- Who is in charge of the install and what happens if there is a discrepancy?
- How does the job get processed after it is complete?
PCI to Provide Virtual or On-Site Training
Once all of the details are in place, we are ready to get your team trained and ready to sell and install TAP®. This can be done in-person or virtually, depending on schedules and number of people to be trained. Sales training typically lasts for 2 hours and is very interactive. Your team will learn about the TAP® benefits, programs, install basics, measuring, quoting, using marketing tools, and the online tools available. Our team utilizes an interactive platform to keep everyone engaged. The installation training lasts about an hour and a half and covers the equipment use, preparation, safety, attic ventilation, install techniques, and clean up.
