Attic insulation--great price, great service

I recently had a very good experience with Tropical. I called a number of other companies for quotes to add to the blow-in insulation that I already had, and they all charged a minimum of $1000 plus tax regardless of the square footage of my attic (about 500 square feet). Tropical, however, gave me a much lower price ($700 plus tax) based on the size of my house.

What really sold me, besides the price, was the consultation. Gary was very thorough and polite when he came to inspect my house. I made him aware that I wanted my attic done as part of the Enbridge rebate. Gary double-checked his measurements to make sure that this job would qualify for the rebate, and he had me double-check with the energy auditor. It's all going to work out, but it was nice that Gary didn't just simply book the job without making sure that it was exactly what I wanted.

The work was done today. The Tropical team was on time, courteous, and clean, and now I have R-60 in my attic before winter comes. Great! I would definitely recommend Tropical.

attic insulation addition

I had multiple quotes for the attic, and Gary provided by far the most thorough assessment, including pointing out some electrical work that needed to be done prior to adding insulation, for safety reasons. This was missed by other companies and even though it was more effort for me, I appreciate the integrity of your company. You would not proceed with the work until Gary had personally verified the work. Marc was an excellent installer, and took care to keep the house clean. He took many pictures to show me the work, which was great as this type of work is harder to inspect than most projects!

Attic Insulation

I needed insulation for My home is a back split and has 2 attics and called Tropical. Gary arrived on time a few days later and gave me a detailed written estimate and we talked about the job. He really help explain the situation. I agreed an nd a couple days later Mark and his helper{I didn't get his name} got to work and following completion showed me several pics of both attics installed insulation and I was very happy with the result along with detailed information. I"m so glad I stayed with Tropical since I had a job done way back in 2009.

Excellent Service All Around

I had three individuals come in and provide me with a quote. Out of the three in regards to the amount of work that was needed Gary, who assessed the work was by far the most professional and most detailed with his explanation.
The crew that consisted of two individuals with Mark being the lead were quick, clean, skillful and competent. Before looking for a quote I would recommend you ask Tropical for a quote and start with them as your benchmark. Thx.

Gary was the only agent that provided a thourough and detailed quote. Pricing was fair and he also provided several recommendations. When the Tropical Insulation team arrived on site, they were professional, on time and kept the home clean. Pictures were provided showing the work done once completed. Very satisfied with their service and would highly recommend.

Attic insulation upgrade

A very satisfying experience: a fast response to our request for assessment; a thorough and professional inspection; a fair and reasonable quote; and a quick follow through to complete the job. The the work was done very well, with care to not damage the work area and a full clean-up afterward, plus a review of what was done, accompanied by pictures.

Attic insulation upgrade

The whole process was extremely smooth. The staff and installers were very friendly. The actual install was awesome because the crew was punctual and worked very efficiently. If you have to get your attic insulated... I would definitely recommend these guys! Already feeling the AC much more within hours on the top floor!

Thorough and knowledgeable

At first, I had not seriously considered using cellulose as a solution, but Gary followed up and took the opportunity to provide his point of view after doing a very thorough investigation of the attic. He asked questions and assembled a recommendation. No other insulator who visited did this and it was impressive. He won me over and we went ahead. The staff showed up right on time. They were Tropical employees and not sub-contractors, very friendly, courteous and fast. Whole job done in 1.5 hrs for approximately 1000 sq feet. Showed me after photos when the job was done and walked me through the work completed. Images were then supplied next day. Temperatures up stairs on the hottest day of the year dropped by 4 degrees C. I was blown away. At night the temperatures for upstairs and down stairs are the same! This was the best money I ever invested into my home in years. I can’t recommend them enough.

Attic cellulose insulation

I have nothing but good words for Tropical Insulations, Inc. From the time I submitted a service request to Home Stars, the company has been very attentive. Gary, their estimator is very professional in his dealings. He's detail oriented and methodical. I was given a very quick installation schedule and they accommodated my preferred date. The 2 installers did an excellent job in ensuring the contract details are addressed. Allan, the person who put on plastic covering on my floor all the way to the room where the attic hatch is located is very conscientious and meticulous. I have never encountered a crew that does a very clean job. They started and completed the work on time. I will surely recommend this company to friends. Please keep up the good work and take care of your employees as they are the reason people like me would hire companies like you.
