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.

Home insulation

Brand Insulation injected "Air-Crete" insulation between the double brick of our bungalow. This was done in less than a day, from the outside of the house, so there was no mess to be made on the inside.

The crew was courteous and conscientious. They arrived early and drilled quite a few holes through the mortar between the brick. After they finished injecting the foamy insulation, they cleaned up and re-filled the holes with mortar so that you could not tell where the holes were. My property and my neighbours' property where tidy and looked untouched.

My house seems less drafty on windy days and I have not had to use two extra electric heaters during cold spells. Along with some caulking and new weather-stripping around doors, we are now in better shape for staying warm during winter. We have used less energy to heat our home this year.

Thermal and sound insulation with AirKrete

The Brand Insulation team were very helpful and responsive right from the start of the process. Leo came and gave a thorough explanation of my options and the pros and cons of each, and the team delivered what they said they would, and on time.

We had a tight timeline and they managed to squeeze us in, which was great. For installation they brought a large team so that it could all get done in one day including clean-up.

We have a 100 year old semi-detached house downtown - the insulation is making a big difference in keeping the house warm, the difference upstairs is impressive. It's also helping reduce noise coming through our shared wall with neighbours although low frequency noise like footsteps, etc and high volume noise still makes it through (we were told this would be the case, so not a surprise to us).

Overall great experience, we would definitely recommend them to others.

Insulcrete entire house walls.

They showed up when they said they would. They did what they said they would. It cost what they said it would cost (less actually in the end). It did what they said it would do and they found us a new Energy Star rebate that almost paid for all the work! We would 100% recommend to friends. House is cozier and bill heating bill is lower! Thank you Brand Insulation!

Aircrete 2 walls

Sam and his team were very efficient and friendly. Came in, assessed the area, drilled the holes, filled the wall space with aircrete, patched up the holes and cleaned up the area. My porch was cleaner after they left than before they came. The wall is much better (not as cold), the house feels warmer, the furnace is not running as much, it is certainly making a difference. Thanks Leo, Brand Insulation and the team for making it happen so fast, 3 hours to get insulation is great. Highly recommended!

Injection Foam Insulation & Blown-in Cellulose

We moved into 100 year old home last Fall. As a result of re-wiring the house, we had several holes and channels cut into our walls and ceilings. Which is when we realized that many areas of the house were totally uninsulated, and others had very little insulation. We hoped to insulate the walls without tearing down the plaster due to budget constraints, since we'd just bought our first place and the costs were adding up fast.

We got quotes from 3 different companies. We ended up choosing Brand because they had good reviews on HomeStars; they could do a foam injection treatment without tearing down our walls; and we really liked idea of using the Air Krete product which we understand is a less toxic foam option. We also had cellulose blown into our attic at the same time.

Our house is a small row house attached on both sides. When Brand came out to see our home and give us the quote, they told us that they had to charge us the minimum rate because that was there policy, but that it was a really small job. We found their quote to be reasonable and we decided to go ahead.

On the day of the job, a team of 4 people showed up and got down to business immediately. During the first half of the day, the team methodically drilled holes throughout the house. After lunch, the team began filling and scraping the holes smooth and the attic insulation was blown in.

The team arrived at 9 and was done by 4. They vacuumed and mopped up after the job was done. The bill was exactly the amount we were quoted. They had someone on their team who would've repaired the walls for us for a small additional fee, but we opted out of this, since we'd already hired a taper to do extensive repair work to the plaster in our house.

The impact of the insulation was immediate. We had the work done in the Fall and it was already extremely cold on the second floor of home at night. We could feel the temperature drop as we'd ascend the stairs between the first and second floors of the house. We were sleeping with 4 blankets on the bed--and it was only October.

Without exaggeration, within 1 hour of the insulation job being completed, we could no longer feel a difference in the temperature between the upstairs and downstairs. Also, before having the insulation done, our basement was the warmest area of the house and the furnace (in the basement) was running all the time. After the job was done, the furnace stopped running all the time (something we'd gotten used to) and the basement reverted to being an average temperature. We couldn't believe how quiet the house was--And it took us a couple days to realize it was because the furnace wasn't running all the time.

And lastly, within 3 months of the insulation installation, the gas company decreased our monthly equalized billing payments because our usage had declined dramatically.

The Brand team was efficient, courteous and tidy. Their products are great and efficient. The money we spent on having the house insulated was one of the best investments we could have made. I would highly recommend Brand insulation to others. Based on our experience, two sets of our close friends have already hired Brand and were equally impressed with the service and amazed by the immediate impact of the insulation on their older homes.
