Attic Insulation

We needed the insulation on the newly upgraded washrooms as well as top-up of the existing insulation to R50. Howard came over to check our requirement and gave us an estimate. Howard was very professional, punctual, and gave his honest opinion on the work required. The work was perfomed within a week by Gino and Frank. Gino asked me to go up the attic and check the insulation. It appeared to be done very well and evenly spread out throughout the entire attic. Thanks Gino and Frank for doing a great job, Gino was very professional and took care of everything before and after the job. The entire work area was cleaned up nicely with no mess afterwards. Walter, thanks for coordinating the job from start to finish. We look forward to enjoy the nicely insulated home!

Topped-up and corrected insulation

Quick, tidy and efficient job topping up blown cellulose and evening it out in the attic of our new (2 yr old) home. When I asked whether the hatch to the attic had been weather-stripped, they said no, and went back and did it. I can't ask for more.

Top-up attic insulation

The ratings on Homestars led me to Tropical Insulation - and they were the first to quote on the top-up job in our new home. The work was carried out with minimum disruption and the installers were quick and tidy.
This, our first home in Canada, is now good to go for the winter and coming summer.

This part of our project was totally hassle-free thanks to Tropical Insulation. Fine job, Walter - the industry should take note of your success.

Vermiculite removal and insulation installation

Tropical did the insulation after vermiculite was removed. They did an excellent job: sprayed foam over the duct work and across the attic and crevices; blew in insulation. Walter Modotto did a great job ensuring his team prepared the work area (removing all sorts of wood and other items left in the attic by previous owners) and did the blowing of foam and insulation properly. Alot of attention was paid to detail so that I was confident that the proper work was done. Would recommend Tropical for any insulation work!

Cellulose Insulation in Attic

Tropical Insulation installed cellulose insulation in our home in the Port Credit area of Mississauga in the Greater Toronto Area. The sales person we dealt with was very friendly and never pushed anything on us that we did not need - something very hard to find these days. The installers were very friendly and respectful and ensured they moved carefully while in our home. The work itself was excellent - I went up in the attic and inspected the job with a friend who works in the trades and we were both very pleased with how good the coverage is, particularly in the hard to reach areas. I would not hesitate to refer this company to my family and friends. Thanks guys - it is refreshing to have such a pleasant experience with contractors!

Attic Insulation from R0 to R50

We contacted Tropical Insulation to install blow-in cellulose insulation in our attic, which had no insulation at all. They installed R50 insulation, which was confirmed yesterday by our energy auditor. They also installed baffles and weather-stripping on the attic hatch, which showed they know their stuff. The installers were also very pleasant and cleaned up after themselves.

Insulate attic space

I needed to have some insulation blown into my otherwise empty attic. Howard gave a fair estimate. The workmen were prompt, very clean and had me inspect the work after. I was satisfied.

attic insulation

I paid for R-35 celluose insullation to be installed over the existing insulation. When I hired another trade to install potlights he informed me, prior to doing any work, that the celluose insulation did not look like R-30. Tropical agreed the insulation was deficient but they would not correct the problem gecause the insulation had been disturbed by another trade. Tropical said they would top up the insulation for $300 which represented an additional 33% in the contracted price.

Thank you for your review. We were sorry to hear that we weren't able to satisfy you and your project needs from the outset. Unfortunately, when insulation becomes disturbed after it is installed, it voids our warranty. However, we are happy that in the end we came to a resolution. Customer satisfaction is very important to the business of Tropical Insulation.
