Hybrid Attic (Sprayfoam-Cellulose) - Great Company, Great Solutions!

GreenSaver came highly recommended to us by our roofing company, and we are very glad we chose them. Don was one of the best managers who ever assisted us. He was helpful every step of the way. He came up with a great solution for our attic-insulation problems and informed us of several things we needed to know about, which no other company we called for quotes had informed us of. For example, he warned us that before spray-foam is applied to the backs of drywalls, the existing vapour barrier needs to be removed so that the spray-foam can adhere to the backs of drywalls properly, or that problems such as bubbling, condensation and mold can occur. I checked with the foam manufacturer and found out he was completely right. No other companies we called for quotes warned us about this nor even included the removal of pre-existing vapour barrier in their work proposals. Don was also the only representative of all the companies we called for quotes to tell us that bathroom fans and indoor pot lights need to be covered so that spray-foam would not come into direct contact with them and to include this in his work proposal. He came up with a great solution of isolating a couple of very narrow, hard-to-reach areas, where spray-foam could not be applied, with rigid-foam insulation and dense-packing them with cellulose insulation. His work proposal was by far the most detailed and best of all the work proposals we received. He provided us with MSDS sheets, liability insurance and a WSIB certificate upon request, helped us get the GreenOn rebate which was being offered at the time, and maintained excellent communication with us before and during the project. GreenSaver's crew worked hard to remove our pre-existing batting insulation. Their project manager Tony came up with a great way to protect our living space and our lungs from the spread of dust with the use of tarps as barriers. There were no problems with insulation-dust dispersal whatsoever. GreenSaver was also the only company to include the use of tarps as protection in their carefully written contract. GreenSaver improved not only our attic insulation but also our attic air-circulation by installing more baffles than we had before. Their spray-foamers, including Nathan, did such an professional job with the spray-foam that there was no gas-off smell whatsoever after the foam was dry. The spray-foam made our attic “air-sealed” for the first time. Their crew then blew in cellulose insulation on top of the spray-foam layer, to increase our R value to much higher than what we had before, to meet the new building code and allow for settling as well. The crew cleaned up and vacuumed well afterwards, leaving the room they used to access our attic in perfect condition. They even insulated and weather-stripped our attic hatch to prevent air-conditioning or heat escaping from our home to our attic and built a well around it to contain the new cellulose insulation. After they completed the work this spring, this was the first summer that we have had very nice, cool, and comfortable temperatures on the upstairs floor all summer long, regardless of how hot it was outside. Our air conditioner also seemed to be working less often, as the set temperature was more easily kept steady without the A/C having to work too much. So we have already noticed an improvement. We've yet to see how it will be this winter, and whether this new insulation will also help with the ice-damming we used to have on our roof every winter. But so far we are very pleased with the effect GreenSaver's work has had on our comfort level and with how thorough and well-planned their work was. We highly recommend GreenSaver to anyone needing attic ventilation, attic- or wall-insulation, and/or air-sealing work done. They are a company of integrity that shows it truly cares about its customers, and we are grateful for their fairness and help.

Spray Foam Insulation

Scott and his guys did a great job from start to finish. Professional, polite, knowledgeable. The foam was applied well, cleaned up - they weren’t sloppy and took care on application. I recommend them 100% - Kevin Evran - Contractor

Insulation

It came to our attention that we had some condensation issues at home. Together with a reputable roofing firm, we all came to an agreement that the removal and replacement of new insulation was needed. Would highly recommend.

Wall and attic insulation

I have used Greensaver twice. First time I got a couple estimates and Greensaver were least expensive and second time I didn’t bother as I was very pleased with their work the first time around. Professional, inexpensive, clean and on time, exactly what you want (and rarely get) in a trade.

Insulation in older house: blown-in and foam

Don from Green Saver gave good advice, and reasonable quotes on insulating an older home while renovations were going on. Although there were a couple of hiccups on scheduling both on my part and Green Savers', Jackson at GreenSavers made heroic and successful efforts to get everything done in time so that the rest of the work on the house could continue. The work was done cleanly and efficiently. I felt that the team at GreenSavers was definitely on my side.

Attic Insulation

This company was referred to us by Avenue Road Roofing, a company I have trusted for over 25 years. Green Saver lived up to expectations, and more. From Gary, the inspector, to Jackson, the scheduler, to Devon and Alex, the installers, we were treated like family. Everything was explained, our estimate reasonable, work performed professionally. The house was left clean and tidy. The truck was immaculate, both inside and out, a testament to the care each staff member takes. I have no doubt that we will benefit from the insulation which was added to our attic 39 years after we moved here. Great job by a great company.

Attic Insulation

Mr. Gary Willcock was very thorough in explaining the process, including extra baffles to improve the attic circulation and the advantages of cellulose over fiberglass. The installation was fast and efficient and the installers even cleaned up after the process. Now my house is nice and cool and I noticed I do not need to turn on AC so much. I should have got it done years ago. Thank you GreenSaver and Gary

energy efficient windows

Highly knowledgeable and detailed advice on selecting 16 new windows for our 100-year-old home, regarding energy efficiency features, choice of window style to maintain the features of the original windows, non-AC ventilation, and colour selection. They came to our house numerous times to ensure that all details were correct before starting the work.

Installation was painstaking, including blown-in insulation.
We highly recommend their service.

Basement and Attic Insulation Project

The process for booking the services was fast and the install teams for both foam and attic insulation were great. They clean up afterwards very well. Inspection prior to the work identified improvement areas I would have missed so that was very much appreciated. I am already recommending GreenSaver to other friends and family especially the Home Energy Audit program where you can receive grants for specific work completed. A very happy customer.
