Attic Insulation and Venting

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

Attic insulation

Service was good and price was reasonable. We were able to have the work done with a minimum of involvement and the work met requirements for government rebate.

Attic insulation top up

Ideal was great to deal with. The consultation with Carlos was helpful with pictures to show the findings. We had ice buildup in the attic from several crews doing work in the attic years before. The resultant heat loss caused a large ice buildup during three weeks of -30 temps which then melted in warmer weather, causing a leak. The crew doing the work protected our home with lots of wraps, removed the old insulation, sealed up all the lights and gaps in the vapour barrier and blew in new insulation plus a top-up to R50 through the whole attic. They tackled a problem area we'd also identified that went all the way back to the 1998 home construction and was in the farthest corner of the attic, very hard to access!
Money well spent, as I feel good knowing we're going to avoid this issue in future cold spells and hopefully lower our heating bills too.

Insulation Upgrade With Ideal Insulation & Roofing

Carlos was extremely good at explaining what we needed to do, how his company, Ideal, would facilitate the job and upfront about the cost involved. All was done according to plan and Carlos was efficient in emailing me and prompt into my inquiries. The crew that did the work, were on time, polite and left no mess. Highly recommend this company as felt they were honest and did what they said they would. Carlos came from a referral from a neighbour and am pleased we choose his company. I have already referred him to another neighbour in our area.

Roofing and Siding

After suffering extensive hail damage from the 2021 storm and dealing with several frustrating insurance contractors, I found Ideal roofing an absolute pleasure to work with. Kevin even assessed the quotes I received from my insurance company and he was able to get me more money from them by pointing out all of the things they missed on the estimate. The finished product is better than when the house was built, the crew didn’t leave a mess behind and they somehow even completed a lot of the work in -30 temperatures. Brand new roof and siding done flawlessly, Ideal.

Attic insulation and bathroom fan venting replacement

Carlos came out and did the quote providing pictures of my attic and explained what would be done. The crew Mateo and Chris were on time and completed the job in approximately 1 1/2 hours. The area was approximately 1100 sqft. The venting for the bath vents was replaced before the insulation was added. The Gooseneck vents were replaced a couple days later by the roofer, Scott. All were professional and great to deal with. The inside of ny house was cleaned up after the insulation portion. No issues at all.

Friendly, professional from start to finish

I had an insurance claim and wanted a professional opinion about the damage that was done. I initially talked to them and I was connected to someone right away and he had someone out within a week to check the damages. He gave me all the options and walked me through the whole process. Once decided on the colour and product the roofing guys showed up 2 weeks earlier than expected and within a day and a half were all done replacing the roof. They were efficient and cleaned up after themselves very well even getting the garbage out of the trees. Then to follow up I had another guy out to inspect the repair and new roof. It was a fabulous experience from start to finish. I totally recommend Ideal Insulation and Roofing.

Attic Insulation Upgrade

I recently purchased my property and was looking to upgrade my attic insulation. I contacted a few different places, but Ideal Insulation was priced right, and the most professional out of the all companies I dealt with. Initially dealt with Mike to set up my quote appointment, and he was super communicative, and asked all the right questions in what work I was wanting done. Greg came out and did my quote, and he was super knowledgable and fantastic to work with. Greg didn't try to push any additional services on me, and answered honestly when it came to all the questions and additional service inquiries I had. Ended up having Ideal complete my attic insulation upgrade to R60 (from R22), and had two bathroom vent hoses upgraded. The work was completed in a timely manner, and they left the home spotless when they were done. On top of all this they were able to save me some money by telling me about the Federal Greener Home Grant which included rebates for Insulation upgrades. Will be using Ideal again in the future for any additional insulation work, and will be reaching out when the time comes to redo my roof.
