Our founder, Lee Foster’s career began in 1978 with a part-time high school job installing insulation for a small company in Bessemer, Alabama. After graduating college and exploring other trades, Lee returned to the insulation industry in 1985 and launched Foster Insulation in 2006 on the idea of being an insulator that simply does what he said he would do. Despite the challenging economic conditions, and an unbelievably competitive market, Foster Insulation found remarkable success.
Chad Luck partnered with Foster Insulation in 2013, bringing 20+ years of industry experience to the Foster Team. In 2014, the Foster-Luck crew opened a second branch in the Chattanooga, Tennessee market, continuing the company’s growth. On the heels of this growth, Chad launched Luck Insulation in 2019, focusing services on homeowners in the metro Atlanta area.
In 2019, Lee and Chad began the process of building a succession plan which was finalized in 2022 and effective January 1, 2023. Following this transition, Luck Insulation was absorbed into the Foster Insulation operations.
The absorption of Luck Insulation added more Luck family members to the team. Chad’s wife Angela Luck, co-founder of Luck Insulation, brings an unprecedented level of operational excellence. Coming out of the garment manufacturing industry, Angela contributes mightily to the Foster Insulation team with experience in team management, coordination, bookkeeping, purchasing and human resources.
