Attic Insulation Removal and Installation

My house in downtown Toronto is more than 120 years old Avenue Insulation removed the blown-in insulation and fiberglass batts in our main attic and knee wall areas and then reinsulated new insulation using a combination of spray foam and blown-in cellulose. The job was tricky because my air conditioner blower and flexible duct work is located in the attic. I was very pleased with the entire process and thought the quality of the work was excellent. I enjoyed working with Phil and all members of the crew.

I was impressed that Phil was willing to discuss the building science and air flow, explore vapour barrier options, and figure out how to maintain access to the air conditioner. To deal with the air conditioner, Phil erected a barrier around the unit and attic hatch so that this area could get thick layer of spray foam while the rest of the attic got a combination of spray foam and blown-in cellulose. I was very pleased that the Avenue Insulation crew was able to get the insulation under and around the A/C ductwork without causing any damage. The entire crew was very hard working, tidy, and courteous.

In addition to the excellent quality of the work they did, what really impressed me about Avenue insulation was Phil's communication skills. I appreciated that he responded to my e-mail and telephone questions promptly and comprehensively. He took time to discuss my concerns and explored options creatively. We needed to co-ordinate the insulation with another trade and Phil was flexible and efficient when scheduling his crews. I really appreciated that he confirmed all our appointments in advance and let me know by text when the crew would arrive or if they were delayed. It was a pleasure having such a conscientious and dedicated team working in my house. I have already noticed that our house is warmer.

Cozy and comfortable

I bought a new 'old' house that I found was entirely uninsulated despite many obvious renovations over the years.

Phil and his team helped me insulate most of my house in stages as I was renovating and was patient with the various delays and coordination with other contractors. Since I am doing an energy rebate program I also will recoup some of the cost.

They were totally reliable, quick and tidy. I recommend them and spray foam insulation -looking forward to my renovations being done and a cozy house for this winter.

Quick and easy solutions

We had a problem with rodent infestation in the bat insulation in our crawlspace under the family room. The room was also chilly in the winter. After assessing the situation, Phil recommended removing the existing bats in the ceiling and replacing them with foam along with installing wire mesh for additional deterrence.
The team arrived, cleaned out the scary crawlspace and got the job done before 4PM the same day. They were professional, skilled and obviously experienced and I was confident we were in good hands. They got the job done and cleaned up afterwards.
The result is terrific; really happy and we would easily recommend Avenue Insulation to anyone. Thanks a lot gentlemen!!

Basement Insulation

Our basement rim joist spaces had been improperly insulated during a gut renovation of our home, leading to drafts, a cold first floor, and general discomfort during the winter season. Phil was extremely helpful in diagnosing the problem and coming up with a solution to remediate it that didn't involve a costly process of tearing down the walls and re-insulating from scratch. His team was very professional in carrying out the job and they were able to completely address the problem areas at reasonable cost. I would highly recommend Avenue Insulation.

Insulation

We hired Avenue Insulation after a terrible experience we had with another vendor and we were extremely pleased with their work. Phil and his guys were friendly, professional and we felt confident the job would be done properly and it was. We highly recommend Avenue Insulation.

Reliable, reasonable, friendly and flexible!

It was great to work with David, Phil and others at Avenue Insulation. Our timeline kept changing and they were very flexible and accommodating. Their rate was also incredibly reasonable. I would say cheap, but their work was too good to use the word! Their team was very clean and the job was extremely thorough which is what you want for this kind of job. Thanks a million!

Thanks so much for the review Natasha. In these weird (COVID-19) times flexibility is essential or we'd be out of business. Glad we could finally make it work for you. As far as being reasonable/cheap, that's ok too although it's not usually what we're aiming for. We like to be somewhere in the the middle price-wise. Maybe it's how things are at the moment in the industry. We're just trying to keep a semblance of business as usual. Anyway, thanks again. Be well!

Basement Renovation

We were very pleased with the job. Your installers, Jason and Conor were very professional and personable. They answered all my questions, and left my basement very clean.

I would definitely use your services again and will recommend your company to my friends and family.

Thanks, Dale

Phil at Avenue Insulation provides top notch work and kept himself available whenever necessary. I would recommend him to any close friend and therefore to anyone looking for insulation work.

We were having significant insulation problems in our kitchen that we had tried to fix before with other providers but to no avail. We called Phil at Avenue Insulation and he has been able to solve our problems where others couldn’t while also providing excellent customer service and “bedside manner” on terms of politeness. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
