THRILLED!

From start to finish, EVERYONE we dealt with was professional, courteous, accomodating and a pleasure to deal with. Gary was very thorough in his assessment of our home's needs. Dominic went out of his way to ensure the installation was scheduled to meet our needs. The installers Mark & Atwima were quick, efficient, and careful not to make a mess. They patiently reviewed and explained the pictures they took of the work they did in blowing in the insulation into our attic. We were impressed with the outftting and adjustments they had to make to ensure every corner of our attic was covered... WE ARE THRILLED with our choice in selecting this company. You will not be disappointed with the service.

Professional Onsite Team, Happy with Value for Money

Tropical Insulation provided top-up of attic insulation to code. Estimator (Gino) was knowledgeable and practical about the options and how to address specific issues economically. Onsite team on the day the work was done was polite, efficient and provided photos of the completed work. I'd recommend them to others looking for blown-in insulation.

Excellent Service!

What a great experience. From the quotation to job completion, I couldn't be happier. At quotation, Justin took the time to explain exactly what they were going to do, additional materials and why, and showed pictures. The quote was competitive. And the insulation addition was within weeks. The insulation team arrived on time (on practically the windiest day of the year), and quickly, efficiently and cleanly completed the job. They showed pictures again of the completed job and even swabbed up the smallest bits of material, from window entry to attic entrance. I was very impressed.

Correction from this Customer: Sales Rep/Estimator's name should be Gary, not Justin.

Attic Insulation Top-Up

My recent experience with Tropical Insulation has been nothing short of excellent.

Gary came out and performed a very thorough and comprehensive inspection. He showed me photos of the current state of the attic and pointed out areas of concern/safety (which no other company did). He provided detailed price quotation, which ended up being the lowest, which was not the deciding factor in choosing Tropical....Gary's thoroughness was!

The excellent service continued when Mark and Atwima showed up (on time) to install the insulation. They were respectful of our property and ensured that plastic drape sheets were put down wherever they would be walking and where the hose would lay. The two worked as a cohesive team and had the work completed in a very short period of time. Before they left a) I was shown before and after pictures, b) they asked that I inspect the area to make sure they had cleaned everything up, and c) wished us happy holidays.

That night we were able to relish our newly insulated home....I guess you could say that the entire second floor of our home was.....Tropical!

Anybody needing attic insulation would be foolhardy in not choosing Tropical Insulation.

Attic Insulation

We contacted a few different companies for quotes and Tropical was the only reasonable estimate as the others were really expensive in comparison. As well, all COVID measures were taken to ensure our safety right from the beginning when Gary came to do the quote until the end when the 2 men were here installing the insulation. Mark took a number of pictures in the attic to show us what needed to be done. The installers were very nice and careful not to damage anything in our home. They laid plastic down everywhere and brought the hose through the second floor front window instead of the door and up the stairs as this was a more direct route to our master bedroom cupboard. They made sure everything was cleaned up and asked us to make sure while they were still here and they showed us pictures of what it looked like in the attic when they were done. We are really impressed with how professional and friendly everyone involved were. We would highly recommend this company.

Attic insulation upgrade

Attic is about 1000 sq.ft. insulation down to 9 in. Insulation added to bring it up to 18 in. Job done quickly and efficiently. They cleaned up well also after the job. It feels much more comfortable inside the house with furnace settings sayin the same. Everyone I dealt with from Gary to the installers, were nice and professional.
