Bungalow Attic Insulation

Ideal was recommended to me through a friend and I now appreciate why. After first contacting the general line (during covid) I was responded to promptly. Greg conducted a (safe) in-person inspection and talked through several options that were best for us (which, in fact, wasn't the most expensive option). Although we didn't end up executing the project until months later, Ideal also worked with us on the price despite cost increases in the industry.
The work itself was very well executed - vacuuming out the original wood chips, repairing the vapour barrier where needed, and blowing in new insulation. Despite still working from home, there was relatively little disruption to our day and we started noticing the benefits of the new insulation immediately.
We are very happy with the work that was done and would recommend Ideal to any of our family or friends!

Attic Insulation Top -Up

I had purchased an older home and there was insufficient insulation in the attic. The house got hot in the summer after the sun went down and the air conditioner ran continuously some nights. I researched insulation companies to do an attic insulation top-up and chose Ideal Insulation. They have a long history in the industry and I was not disappointed. Greg came over and surveyed the attic and noticed that our kitchen fan exhaust ducting seemed to have a gap to the roof which his crew could fix by caulking it. They would include this as part of the work that they were doing. When the crew arrived they noticed that there was a more serious issue and I should have the ducting repaired. I appreciated Ideal's professionalism in noting problems outside of just the insulation work that they were doing and had the ducting looked at. The attic insulation was topped up after I had the ducting repaired and we have noticed that it no longer gets as hot in the house. The attic insulation top up was definitely worth the investment and I enjoyed working with Ideal Insulation & Roofing on this project.

Redo attic insulation

We had attic rain a couple years ago after a severe cold spell followed by very warm temperatures. It was gone last year but reappeared again this year. Ideal came and provided a competitive quote to fully redo the attic insulation including adding a new spray foam vapour barrier and redo all our bathroom fan vents/hosing. The various crews were extremely professional, ensured they kept our home clean through the process and actually showed up ahead of schedule and finished early!! I would highly recommend Ideal for any and all roofing and insulation needs.

Great experience

We had one of their guys come out to take a look at a condensation issue we had. Not only did he answer our millions of questions but told us how we could remedy it and also gave us a quote for their services. NO charge for coming to take a look. Very polite, has been quick to communicate with, answered all my questions and above all... NOT PUSHY! I would strongly recommend them if you want a truly honest opinion. Even though I did not end up using their services, I hugely appreciate how willing they were to help someone out!

Upgrading insulation

We knew it was time to address the insulation in our home. The attic insulation was over 20 years old and the floor above the cantilever in our master bedroom was always cold in winter, even with carpet. Ideal was one of two contractors we requested estimates from and, like others, we too were impressed with the thoroughness of their inspection and the attention paid to detail, all of which was reflected in the quote. I was also impressed with their voluntary inclusion of copies of all the contractor related documentation - WCB, ins, business license, etc. We had the work done in August with the attic insulation replaced (R50) and spray insulation for the cantilever. The install experience was good - professional, courteous, timely and tidy. I’ve been holding off on the review until the weather could truly test the quality of the work and these last 2 weeks have certainly tested the insulation. I’m delighted to say that our home temperature has held steady for extended periods and the floor over the cantilever is no longer cold, even with bare feet. Ideal did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend them.

Attic Top Up Insulation

Estimator was thorough, friendly, on time and took time to ensure the customer was clear on what exactly they would be doing.
Installers again were on time and proceeded with the job without delay. When they were complete asked the owner if he would like to take a look in the attic to ensure he was satisfied with the completed work.
I would recommend this company.

Insulation in roof

My unit is 20 years old. Insulation was at approximately 23. Code is now 50. I brought it up to 60. Very pleased with Mike’s inspection and quote. Also very pleased with the three gentlemen that did the actual work. I can feel the difference in my home already. I will be recommending Ideal to any other unit owners who wish to have this done. Thank you.

Spray foam & fibreglass loosefill insulation; attic upgrade

It's almost unimaginable to use the word "enjoy" when talking about home repair, but I did honestly enjoy the experience of working with Mike Palmer and the team at Ideal. There was some scheduling complexity to our insulation job, as we first had to complete an absetos abatement and make some other attic repairs and modifications. Mike was outstanding managing this project, accommodating changes, identifying solutions, all the while communicating clearly and regularly. All the Ideal team was great, and I would highly recommend working with Mike to coordinate and manage your project.
