I live in a duplex built in 1978 in the Callingwood Area. The attic is poorly insulated and it is mighty cold in here. My husband is handy, and could do the job, but he works long hours at the upgrader. Looking for a quote on how much it would cost to blow insulation into my attic. Reasonable people, with reasonable prices only please, as I just got laid off and we only have one income coming in.
We may also be interested in spray foaming our basement. Best case scenario would be for someone with expereince to help my husband. We could rent the equipment, and then pay for your time, if it would save us money.
There is a pipe that runs across the attic hatch. Apparently it is not supposed to be there. I have had a hell of a time trying to get the condo board to come and take a look at it. Extremely frustrated with the entire issue...sigh...
Older home, peaked roof, recently renovated in need of decent attic ventilation and increased insulation. (Ice damns last winter!) Will need to have heat leaks sealed, likely baffles installed and likely some venting installed.. Does have knee walls and an overhang with soffat venting already in place.
House description: two-story single house, built in 1979, 1,923 sqf.
House location: Edmonton south-west area
Basement: unfinished, concrete wall
Project: intend to install insulation on the concrete wall all the way around basement. Installation includes install wood frame on the wall and put up the insulation material (all materials are included).
To advise how to stop us hearing the people moving about above us. The existing ceiling is a single layer of plasterboard on bars. I do not know if the bars are insulated or if material has been put in the air gaps. I do know there are pot lights and none of the electrical boxes have sound insulation around them. As the existing ceiling has a splattered finish I imagine it is cheaper to remove the boards, check the bars are of the right type,sound insulate all the electrical boxes and then install new plaster board with a viscous elastic barrier.
A splattered finish will only be nescarry if it aids in soundproofing. Then painting. The rooms to be involved are two bedrooms and the general sitting, dining, kitchen, and hallways. Estimated total area 1000 square feet.
I have a 1 1/2 story home built in 1947. At some point, the gable vents were covered with siding. When the home inspector told me about it I didn't really understand the significance until the ice-damming started last March. I suspect the attic could also use some additional venting and insulating.
We have a brand new home that has rooms that are cold. Our building inspector has estimated that the insulation job in the garage does not meet code. We would like for someone to come out and inspect and give us an estimate on the costs get this to code and have our rooms comfortable for winter. We need quick service. Our rooms are cold.
Brand new town house that we will be taking possession of in May. Basement space is approx 18.5x21.2. Mechanical room and laundry room already finished. The frost wall is insulated with R-20 insulation. Remaining concrete walls have 2x6 studs. We are looking to simply finish the insulation and drywall the space to the point where it is ready for us to paint. We would like to have this done when we get possession right away so it can be complete for us to move in within a week or less.
1950's original construction home with 2 additions with separate crawl spaces (25'x11' rectangle and 6' - 7' - 5' - 7' - 6' 5 sided with 15" adjoining original house) Both spaces are dirt floor, suspect insulation & vapour barrier, plumbing pipes & heating ducts with 1 heating vent opening and accessible thru original basement windows. Floors above these areas colder than rest of house. Spaces have been dry since 2010 when we purchased the home. Unknown prior history but no indications of moisture until April 2017 when rectangular space received damage from frozen water pipe above causing fresh water to infiltrate area.
Now considering upgrading both crawl spaces. Want to explore options other than pink insulation - styrofoam? Roxul? Spray Foam? Also want to explore options to seal/insulate the dirt floor. We have significant "crawling bugs & beetles" access our house especially in spring.
Prefer to have contractor who is registered with click here so we can apply for the rebate program.
I have a stand alone 24 foot x 26 foot garage that needs insulating. The job requires two parts:
1. Install foam baffles (I have the baffles, they just need installed)
2. Insulate attic with blown insulation
The garage is heated and has a furnace chimney coming through the attic. The roof has a vent installed. The interior ceiling of the garage is finished in 3/8 inch plywood. There is single attic "hatch" in about the center of the garage. Since this is a garage, I estimate 5-6 inches of insulation should give an R20 to R25 rating which should be adequate, but this can be discussed further.
This is about 1000 sq.ft. attic to be brought up to R-50 or R-60. There is currently bats between the rafters throughout, also some old-style powdery insulation.
It won't be easy to get out to the soffits; I estimate the pitch to be about 5-to-1. The contractor would have to be OK with explaining this to me so I understand how you would tackle the project.
We have rec'd a few ballpark quotes over the phone so please give a ballpark quote; also, we would want a few references (happy former customers). In turn I will certainly write a glowing testimonial if we find you do good work.
We would like to do this in the week of Aug. 4-7. Otherwise it would have to be September.
Thanks very much to all of you who take the time to read this.
I'm looking to have the skirting around my Mom's single wide mobile home insulated. The mobile home is approx. 76 ft long x 16 ft wide. Currently has vinyl skirting around the mobile home. Not looking at having it spray foamed. Need to have this completed before the snow falls as the pipes freeze in the winter.
Looking for respectable, honest work to be done in a timely manner for a senior.
Thank you in advance.
I have original belly bag. Water lines froze several years ago and were replaced with the red and blue plastic lines. No freezing since but the furnace never shuts off in our harsh winters. Need help and estimate. Also, probably would need home to be leveled. Has never been done professionally. Should be done before insulating? Or not a priority?
We are in the middle of a top to bottom home reno of a house built in 1953. We just had new high efficiency furnaces installed, but high efficiency goes out the window when you have no insulation (we recently removed all plaster and are essentially living in a box of wooden matchsticks). We need insulation before winter! Spray foam is preferred, but we need it at a reasonable price. The house is about 1000 sq ft upstairs and the same downstairs (we are building a secondary suite).
I would like to get an estimate on insulation upgrades I require. I presently have blown insulation in my attic. I think I would like to keep this as is but have it increased. Attic vents rejacketed, my bathroom and kitchen vents drip when the weather gets mild. I also have some cold spots in the walls, hopefully these can be checked and fixed. Our house is a 1050 sq.ft. bungalow, 32 years old.
Hi, I will need to have a new home to be insulated with R20 insulation and vapor (air) barrier installed with caulking... (that's what the plan says...) and would like to have pricing on regular insulation and spray foam insulation. Also would like to have pricing on drywall. Exterior walls for insulation is 3600 sqf and inside walls for drywall is 13500 sqf.
Ciggarate smoke is leaking into our apartment; we have noticed the smell in the bathroom, master bedroom and the living room. we have had the apartment maintainance person over and he caulked certain areas and blocked the hole with some cloth, however the smoke is still leaking through. Can we get a quote to check, advice and insulate our apartment to prevent smoke from entering into our aparment.
NOTE : Though this is a rental unit, we are are willing to pay the expenses for the project
1160 sq. feet in size, bungalow. Age of home is 55 years old.
The attic insulation consists of wood chips, upon which there is a layer of VERMICULITE, and then fiberglass insulation.
The vermiculite has asbestos in it, and needs to be removed.
I need to get a quote for removal of all the current insulation in the attic, plus Re-Insulating the attic with either fiberglass insulation or blown in insulation (whichever is cheaper).
Also, I will need a written certificate after the job is done, that the attic is now Vermiculite/Asbestos free.
