Basement renovation (insulation, framing + drywall) and attic insulation

Overall, I was very impressed with Exotherm's range of work and expertise throughout the course of this rather extensive project. I'm glad I went with them and highly recommend them, especially for jobs needing a range of services. After my old finished basement needed to be "gutted" by another company for waterproofing, I looked to them to rebuild things for both insulation and drywalling (among a few other touch-ups along the way) and they did an excellent job, coming in on budget and on time. With my home being 100+ years old, I appreciated the extra care and attention that was needed to rebuild and refinish the basement, including concrete work for a new step over a recently replaced water main and to reinforce the structural integrity of a window. I also used this occasion to have Exotherm insulate my attic while the work in the basement was underway and was equally impressed with thoroughness of their work and am already enjoying the greater warmth in the rooms on our 2nd floor. I also greatly appreciated Anthony dropping by on several occasions to check on how the work was doing and to answer my questions along the way, and the very personable members of his crew who came in to prep and clean things up, while also keeping me posted in terms of the work in progress. Now looking forward to making greater use of my dry and (almost) refinished basement!

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to leave such a detailed review on your experience with us!!! Older homes do pose their share of challenges, and you were extremely patient as we figured out the best solutions for each as they arose, that is not overlooked. We are happy and satisfied to hear that you are noticing the increased efficiency of the attic insulation, especially as the frigid temperatures of our infamous Toronto winters become a normality!!! It was a pleasure working with you as well, on behalf of our entire team, we wish you happy holidays and all the best in the new year!!!

Ceiling & Walls - Drywall Repair

My project:
- repair of drywall on walls from wallpaper removal in master bedroom
- repair of drywall on ceiling from stucco removal in master bedroom & hallway

Not the most fun work, but totally necessary. Anthony from Exotherm responded to my posting (among other companies) and I was extremely impressed from the beginning. He arranged a site visit (a few other companies quoted from pictures), he took the time to understand the work required (hallway ceiling was over a staircase) & the environment (newly stained stairs & we were living in the house during the work). He gave me a detailed quote for the work.

The prep team took amazing care to cover everything to protect from dust which allowed my family to carry on with working-from-home during the project. The drywall tapers did true quality work & left the ceiling & walls with the smoothest finish! Even my painter commented on the quality of taping/mudding done.

I will absolutely use this company for my future projects & I highly recommend Anthony & his team at Exotherm for professionalism, attention to detail, care of your property & environment and a job extremely well done!

I was initially surprised to have a Spray Foam company contact me for drywall work - but this company can take you from insulation to finished walls or any step in between. I will definitely use

Hi Kelly,

Your words are extremely flattering, we truly do appreciate you opting to share your experience, thank you so much!!! Your project definitely did present its share of challenges, but that is what makes our job not only exciting, as no day is ever the same as the last, but also satisfying in that we push ourselves to conquer new challenges daily!!! You and your family made our work feel like we were doing a job for a lifelong friend, and your demeanour and hospitality left nothing to be desired. We are glad you mentioned the fact that you had doubts about hiring a company with "spray foam" in their name to provide drywall services, and you did mention that in our initial conversation, however that is where the "systems" part of our moniker comes into play, as structures are exactly that, a system with all parts working harmoniously together to make the final product. Although we started out initially as an SPF insulation contractor, we have since grown to encompass many other aspects of the industry, none being taken any less seriously than the other, with highly skilled trades performing their duties while striving to provide quality workmanship in everything that we do. We take great pride in being not only a trendsetter in this regard, as we see more and more companies beginning to offer full service insulation/drywall, but as an industry leader in our respective field(s) as well!!! Thank you for applauding our efforts and all the best to you and yours!!!

Spray Foam Insulation for Garage and Hybrid Insulation for Attic

Based on previous top and the most recent reviews, I reached out to about 4 Spray Foam insulation companies and I received the best quote from Anthony/Exotherm Spray Foam Systems Inc. The quote included the work for two projects.

1. Removing Garage Drywall Ceiling, Removing the existing batt insulation from there, 5 inches (R31) of 2-lb Spray foam over the Garage Ceiling and Re-do the Ceiling Drywall, Cleaning up all the debris.

2. Removing existing R32 Blown-in Cellulose insulation, apply 2 inches (R12) of 2-lb Closed Cell Spray Foam insulation all over the Attic floor and fill the rest with Blown-in Cellulose insulation up to the recommended R60 standard code, along with adding additional Rafter vents, Fiberglass batt insulation soffit damming, Electrostatic Mold Control application, Extruded Polystyrene Rigid insulation panel (R15@3inches), Weather stripping to attic hatch, Cleaning up all the Debris.

The Quality of work and the professionalism from Anthony and the Exotherm team was just fantastic. The whole project went perfectly fine. They provided me with lot of pictures before, during and after completing each job and clarified all the doubts I had through the project. Anthony dropped by once when the Spray foam work was going on to check if everything was going fine. The team took a great care with prep work and ensured everything was covered and were extremely careful throughout the whole project.

Once they tore down the Garage Ceiling Drywall, we found that the original builder had left a Supply and a return duct open and it had been left functional and stayed between the Garage Ceiling Drywall and below the Subfloor of our bedroom (above the Garage), which is against the building code.

I felt the difference with the quality of insulation, run time of AC and Furnace and temperature within the house before and after this project. The bedroom above the Garage used to get pretty cold and the temperature difference during late September would be at least 4-5 degrees below the temperature in our Family room but right now, it remains pretty close to the temperature at our family room. The Closed Cell Spray foam also added rigidity to our bedroom floor, which is pretty awesome. Can't wait to see how things are during the peak winter time.

Anthony was quite understanding about the situation and he actually helped with providing contact details of another company (Dave's Ducts) who helped us with inspecting the ducts and confirmed that they are indeed Supply and Return ducts and needs to be capped. Anthony was flexible with moving the date for completing the Ceiling Drywall in the meantime I got that "Duct Problem fixed".

Anthony and Exotherm team are just fantastic and hands down one of the best professional Companies to work with. I had the pleasure to know them and I am really glad I chose to have this project completed by Anthony's team.

I would definitely recommend Exotherm to anyone who wants to get the insulation done. I would definitely reach out to Anthony in order to have our entire Basement insulation redone if needed.

Thank you Anthony and the Exotherm Team once again, you guys are the absolute best :)

Exotherm laid out our options and we were more than happy to go with the full option. You get what you pay for.

Garage spray foam

I can never be bothered leaving reviews about contractors but these guys earned and deserve such an amazing review. Anthony and his team did such an outstanding job applying spray foam in my garage, I could not be happier. Anthony is very knowledgeable with the product and assessment on what to spray foam. Anthony came to my house a couple of times to give me estimates and also explaining what I should spray. With his quotes, he also provided information about the product, WSIB documents, insurance documents. I sprayed the garage ceiling (daughters bedroom above), rim joists, a common living wall, I-beams, and a block wall in the ceiling. The end result is perfect. Immediately I was able to feel a difference in my daughters bedroom up above the garage.
They arrived on time. Before starting, the worker explained the process to me. He covered the floors and everything in my garage. The spray was very uniform. Once finished and before cleaning up he called me into the garage to make sure I was happy with everything (which I was). Very friendly and professional.
If you are looking for spray foam, look no further, choose Exotherm Spray Foam. I would definitely recommend them. Definitely exceeded my expectations.

Hey Paul,

Exposed floors are one of the primary areas where thermal bridging occurs, the heat or cold not only travelling up into the floor, but into the walls as well, and closed cell 2lb SPF is the only solution to this in my humble opinion. Sadly enough though, more often than not, most builders choose cheaper alternatives, such as batt insulation, 0.5lb light density SPF, or blown-in loosefill insulation, all of which are effective in their own right when used in the proper application, in this circumstance however, not so much so. This is by far the number one complaint that we receive from homeowners, "the room is too hot in the summer, and colder than the rest of the home in winter", and nine times out of ten, the room above the garage is their children's room, and being a father myself, I know the natural instinct of wanting to protect your child, especially your little girl. I'm glad we could make a difference in your home, and we appreciate you being adamant about sharing your experience with us, thank you so much and all the best!!!

Attic Insulation

Anthony at Exotherm was the fastest to respond and give a quote for updating our attic insulation. He demonstrated both expert knowledge and experience as shown in his assessment, explanations, and answers to our questions. We had the old (40 years) fibreglass insulation (batts and loose) completely removed, baffle vents installed (there were only a few wooden ones before), soffit damming, spray foam the attic floor to R12, spray foam the rim joists and the attic side of the skylight shaft to R24. Mold control was applied before and after spray foaming. This was followed up with blown in cellulose, and attic hatch insulation/ weather stripping. Sufficient cellulose was installed to allow for eventual settling and still achieve final R60 thermal resistance. Anthony and his crews (including Adam and Courtney) were highly skilled, professional, always focused, efficient, courteous and cheerful. They practiced safety precautions and always cleaned up at the end of each day. We noticed the area under the skylight is now significantly cooler on very hot sunny days. They performed an amazing, high quality job at every stage and exceeded our expectations. Exotherm is highly recommended!

Attic insulation

OMG what an amazing company. The crew knew their stuff. Every bit of it. Efficient, worked all day until 1st phase was complete. Clean, laid down floor protectors, were very careful with hose through the house. We received many quotes from different companies, telling this and that.
The owner Anthony, emailed their insurance papers, WSIB documents. Every up to code, trustworthy, honest, knowledgeable and friendly. And the best price.
Highly recommend

New build, excellent work

Exotherm did both the insulation (spray foam, batt, and soundproofing batt) plus the drywall. Four different crews that all worked seamlessly at different times and the final job was excellent. They ran into various small issues related to framing etc. (work by others) but found solutions at no additional cost which was really great.
Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Also painters just finished and they complimented the drywall installers to I think that is a very high praise.

Attic insulation

Wanted to update attic insulation after 26 years in the house! Anthony quickly gave a quote and great explanation of the work and had his crew in within a week. The team covered and protected all work areas and left the house very clean. Very pleased with the work and noticed a difference in the upstairs temperature immediately! Thank you!!
