A major leak developed in our roof just before Christmas. Going up into the attic, I discovered that several 4 x 8 sheets of plywood had gotten mouldy and rotten. (The builder had decided to vent the upstairs bathrooms into the soffits and not through the roof. After many years of backflow into the attic and condensation on the underside of the roof, the structure had failed.)
We hired a reputable roofing company to come in to install a new roof. However, the roofer was unable to redirect the existing venting up through the roof. We did not want to leave the problem in place. We had been thinking about hiring a handyman but were reluctant to trust a general and perhaps inexperienced worker.
While investigating the possibility of upgrading our insulation to R 50, I happened upon Insta-Insulation (as seen on Mike Holmes’ tv shows). Their representative Sean advised me that I should correct the venting in the attic before I did the insulation upgrade. Fortunately for us Insta-Insulation also has handyman services staffed by attic specialists.
A week later, we had 2 visits in the same day. In short order our attic venting was put right in the morning. In the afternoon other upgrades were completed including the addition of blown cellulose to take our house up to and beyond the building code.
At all times Insta-Insulation staff were friendly, professional, and courteous. Those who visited our home were careful to leave the premises as clean and neat as they found it.
I cannot recommend a company more highly than Insta-Insulation for any service that they may provide. It was a pleasure dealing with them. They have given us much peace of mind about the security of our attic and the savings and comfort we will experience in future. Many thanks.
