We had two quotes for upgrading our attic insulation.
The first company (recommended by a friend's neighbour) asked to be sent the Greener Homes Report which had brought us around to looking at upgrading the insulation in our 40 year old home. Within a couple of hours we got a quote back for the insulating offering the day they could come by to do the work. I was not impressed.
The second company was IDEAL Insulation (recommended by a fellow who has a highly successful home building business in Calgary). Mike Palmer of IDEAL came round to inspect both attic spaces, discovered our soffits were not up to code and we did not have any venting from the main attic. He was very professional, personable and explained the effects of the smaller soffits and no venting which lined up with our experiences dealing with the temperatures within the house.
The quote was within the same range as the fellow who had not taken the time to come by to take a good look at what work was really required.
The fellows from IDEAL who came to manage the rest of the work arrived on time, were also very professional, personable explaining what they were doing. They cleaned up 100% afterwards. Throughout this Mike stayed in touch with us confirming decisions about the colour of the vents so as to blend in with our roofing, the price as well as the date of the work to be done.
Thank you Mike and crew., I highly recommend IDEAL
