Attic and wall insulation

Over 30 years ago I bought a brick-to-brick bungalow, I upgraded doors, windows and attic insulation but still had a cold drafty home in the winter especially in the living room. I looked at various options to insulate the walls but I wasn't keen on any of them until I saw the ad from Brand Insulation, I did research on both the company and the procedure and decided that this was what I was looking for. I could insulate my home from the inside without reducing the size of the rooms. My outside walls are stained so I didn't want any holes from the outside. I had the attic insulation topped up from R25 to R50 and had Air Krete installed in the inside walls so I probably have R6 wall insulation. The attic insulation qualified for the Government rebate but the wall insulation did not. The product is non-expanding cement based foam so it won't damage my walls, it's non-toxic and also reduces outside noise which is invaluable when neighbours have late night parties. I am looking forward to lower heating/cooling bills.
The procedure is very labour intensive, it's amazing watching these guys work. Two guys start drilling, there is a vacuum attached to the drill that sucks up the debris so there is little mess and dust. Then the two guys start filling the holes with insulation, one controls the amount of insulation while the other fills the holes and surrounding area. After a while a third guy came along and cut off the excess insulation, then he rough patched with Sheetrock 90, this guy was unreal, he had such flare, I watched him doing the rough patch and it was so smooth, I couldn't believe how fast he was. When the rough patch dried you could barely see where the holes were drilled as the patches blended in with the wall paint.
I was very impressed by the expertise and professionalism of the entire crew. From my initial contact to the end of the project the company provided excellent customer service-some companies say they provide good customer service but this company delivers. Thanks so much to you and your crew for their hard work.
Have no hesitation in recommending Brand Insulation for all your insulation needs.

Real Customer Service

Brand was recommended by a finicky coworker who does insane research prior to purchases, so I trusted I was in good hands. These folks are incredible. Good old fashioned customer service from start to finish. They are timely, clean, and efficient. No surprises. No gimmicks. No overselling.
With the interior, while holes are being drilled, there's a vacuum attachment sucking up debris, so no mess or dust. Holes are filled with insulation, any over-spill is wiped up, holes get patched, and floors are cleaned up afterwards.
As for exterior walls, you have to look real hard to find the drill spots. Everything gets sprayed down and cleaned up.
Kudos to the whole team!

Air Krete injection foam

I always had a problem with one of the rooms in the house. In winter we would close the air shatters trying to redirect the flow of warm air but that would always make the other rooms cold.
A friend of ours in the USA told me about Air-Krete insulation that he used in his house. After making some enquiries I managed to find a company in the GTA, Brand Insulation, that pumped Air-Krete in Ontario.
I looked at the various suppliers of foam insulation as well but there is something about people wearing Hazmat protection gear when pumping the foam that made me uncomfortable.
I met with a sales rep from Brand Insulation and decided to follow his recommendation that meant pumping the insulation from both outside and inside.
The crew showed up on time, was working fast and cleaned all the debris.
What a difference… the effect in the house temperature was almost immediate. My family is very pleased with the results and that is what matters.

Thank you, Brand Insulation.

Air Krete Insulation

I hired Brand Insulation in May 2016 because I was looking for an non-toxic insulation. Insulation is applied outside on the brick walls of the house from the top to the street level. However, this insulation was not sufficient to keep the house warmth inside. I had to hire another reputable insulation company to apply inside the house that uses soya spray foam insulation which is also non-toxic and eco-friendly. If I have done the inside insulation first, I would not need anymore to hire Brand Insulation. I felt this job was just waste of money considering that the insulation was not sufficient enough to make the whole house warmth.

Existing walls with Air Krete insulation

We recently used Brand Co. services for our old bungalow, with excellent results. My husband and I are very impressed by the expertise and professionalism of the working crew. They came on time, covered all the working surfaces ( we had 2 basement walls done inside), worked non-stop and washed everything thoroughly upon completion, inside and outside the house. All the work was completed by 3:00 pm. We already feel the difference in air quality and warmth levels. We are extremely pleased and would strongly recommend this company because of their superior product and services.

Insulation in old home

We hired Brand Insulation to inject airkrete insulation into the walls of our 100 year old home. We could not be more happy with the work they did.

The crew was on time, professional and extremely quick and efficient. They got to work as soon as they arrived and worked the entire time they were at our house. They were completely done the outside portion in under 2 hours, and the entire job was done before 3pm.

We have had contractors in our home many times over the past 2 years, and Brand's crew was hands down the most professional and polite. They did an excellent job cleaning up as well. We wanted to do some interior walls between the attached semi for soundproofing, and the crew was honest and told us that it would be much cheaper and just as effective to use cellulose for that portion instead of airkrete. That recommendation saved us $400 which we appreciated.

Rough patching of the holes is included and we hired Serge (one of the crew members) to complete the patching to "paint ready". His price was very reasonable and he was very quick and done by the next afternoon. He did a great job patching the plaster walls as well.

We would definitely recommend Brand Insulation - great job.

Insulating Old Brick House

I hired Brand Insulation to insulate my old and cold double brick house. The house was built in the 1920's and is extremely cold in the winter.

They insulated the main floor by drilling through the brick on the outside of the house. However, for the second floor they stated they couldn't go from the outside due to equipment limitations, and instead needed to drill holes on the inside. This was truly unfortunate as it created more work for me to patch up holes and repaint / touch up the rooms effected.

The result is the main floor is noticeably less drafty, its warmer, and much more comfortable. The upper floor is still pretty cold, but in defense of the product, there are large drafty windows upstairs, and my attic requires more insulation as well in order to fully judge the success of the job.

Overall, I'm very satisfied, and I'm sure when I replace my upper windows and insulate my attic, I will notice it is much warmer.

The guys were excellent, hard working, and friendly.
