Thorough job and pleasant to deal with

Sourced a few quotes to add additional attic insulation - all prices were very similar but I ended up picking Tropical (even though marginally more expensive) because I felt their sales representative Walter really took the time to put together a detailed quote and answered all of my questions/concerns - the extra mile in customer service really does make the difference!

Gino came and installed about a week later and he was also very friendly and professional, allowed me to see the difference for myself when he was finished. I was very happy with the entire experience overall. Thanks!

Very Happy with Tropical Insulation

Gino and his assistant arrived at our house at the promised time and did a great job adding insulation to our attic - a huge difference in the amount of insulation that will reduce our expenditures on heating and air conditioning. The job was completed quickly, clean-up was thorough and the team was very friendly and polite. In addition, they are based in Etobicoke but came all the way to complete the job and our house in Guelph. I was very happy with the whole experience and would use this company again!

Upgraded Insullation to R60

Gino and his crew were very professional. The work was done in a timely manner with minimal disruption. They ensured everything was protected from the dust and cleaned up after, leaving the place. They even took the extra step to add available foam I had to my trap door and installed a weather seal around it. Thank you for a job well done at a very cost effective price.

Attic Insulation

Tropical Insulation came to add more cellulose material to my attic. They did a marvellous job. Gary's quotation was very reasonable , and Gino was the technical master who came to do the blown-in. Gino was respectful, friendly, experienced, efficient, and most of all, honest and give me the true R Value that I asked for. The job was very well done and clean. I highly recommend them. This is an honest business.
Now my house temperature is just right , saving so much energy.
This is the company you can trust, they are modest and don't rip you off like the previous contractor who worked on my attic.

The previous contractor earned top-rating on Home Star, they appeared friendly and polite , and tricked me into giving them a good rating last year on completion , but ended up walking away with a less than R50 insulation layer for my attic instead of R60 as promised. When I called them for a redo they of course never phoned back. Beware! I did not find out the work was so poor until during the winter when my house was so cold.

Insulation

This company treated my home like their own. Very respectful and professional. They even helped me understand other ways I can fix my home to save energy, in ways unrelated to their business. I have now booked them for my in-law's home.
