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.

Attic Insulation

I have stumbled upon this great site and found terrific reviews of Tropical Insulation. I hired them for my attic insulation and result was superb services and work. From Howard who gave me free estimates to Alfredo and Sam who performed actual work, without leaving any dirt afterwards. Super efficient and clean job.

Attic Insulation

We had a terrific experience working with Tropical Insulation. Even though they were very busy, they made the effort to give us a cost estimate at a time convenient to us on a Sunday. The cost to top up our attic insulation was reasonable and they clearly explained the deliverables.

Tropical helped us schedule the insulation job at a time that would not be too disruptive to our work schedules. The work crew was friendly, efficient and professional. They did the a great job, cleaned up after themselves and even shoveled part of my driveway!

attic insulation

We hired Tropical Insulation based on the review from this webisite. Because my two neighbours and I are doing it together, so Howard gave us a reasonable price. The workder Alfredo and Sam are very polite and nice people. They are on time and it only took about less than 1.5 hours to finish one house. The temperature is dropping now, I hope this winter my 2nd floor will be much warmer than previous years.

Attic insulation

The company recommended the right amount of insulation to meet our energy audit improvement requirements. The measurements, signing of the job contract, and installation were hassle free. The insulation can only be completed on weekdays.
