I chose Western for my home. When so much effort and care goes into a building envelope to make it efficient and comfortable, a lot of the credit for detail can be taken by the insulators from Western Insulations and the cellulose insulation, WallBar. As a contractor and builder for many years, and with a focus on building for passive solar and efficiency and comfort, my main partners in achieving the objectives have been the two brothers who run Western Insulations. I first met them in 2000 working for another company. They have continued in business on their own and made a career out of insulating buildings. We have achieved wall and roof retrofits of existing homes, super-insulated custom homes, commercial developments, sound insulation for music studios (2) and homes, and upgrades to numerous homes and attics over the years, vaulted ceilings and so on. I am in awe at the end of every job at the quality of the work. The insulation is dense, evenly packed and fills every gap, nook and cranny, which tightens a building against air changes, stops convective heat loss, and resists radiant heat loss as well as sound transmission. Performance has been verified with blower door tests on several jobs. For example, we took a home (1948) from Energuide 42 to Energize 71, and the major portion of this advance credits to the insulation work: Rim joists, attic, vaulted ceilings and walls. In Alberta, where we have extremely cold weather, this is the best choice of contractors for me and solves a lot of problems. The photos show my personal Studio and Workshop at home.
