I'm looking for a contractor to do the attic insulation job. My energy auditor said that the attic is approx 600-650 sq ft and there's approx insulations of 6 inches. If we need additional 10-inch insulation, how much would it cost?
Our house is near Bristol/McLaughlin, Mississauga, Ontario
I have an approx 2,000 sq ft house- semi-detached. I had a home audit done and insulation currently RSI 3.5 (R-19.9) and i'd like to increase that to RSI 8.8 (R-50).
House is approx 28yrs old and there is blown insulation currently in there.
Also from my home inspection report, attic hatch doesn't fit properly and insulatioin is displaced in one or more areas.
I would like the attic hatch checked, insulation evened and raised to RSI 8.8 (R-50) and i'd like to make sure the soffit vents aren't blocked when the insulation is blown in.
I have only been here for about 4yrs, and there wasn't much information from the prior owners on previous history.
I am not sure how much this will cost, so i'm estimating on my budget.

My house requires an attic insulation upgrade from current R -20 (back) / R-25 (front) to R-50. The current insulation is fibreglass (pink). The multilevel house attic area is approx.:
- 400 sq ft upper (back)
- 600 sq ft lower (front)
Contractor to check for any penetrations in the roof as well as ensure the soffit venting is clear.

Description of work site:
Unfinished basement with three feet hight of batt [pink fibreglass] insulation on eight feet high cement basement walls of SFD home built in 1976.
Attic with drywall has the original pink fibreglass insulation.
Description of Required Service:
Remove and dispose off the existing batt insulation. Option of continuing with scheme of existing framework [horizontal running wood frame] or installing new 2x4 wood frame and install R-14 batt insulation.
Blowing in cellulose fill over the existing insulation and raise the attic insulation value to R40.
The 2 exterior walls of one bedroom should have better insulation. During the winter is cold and during the summer is hot.
There is a 8-9 year old townhouse, the bedroom being on the 2nd level. One wall has app. 2m lenght and has the window on it, the other wall has app. 1m lenght.
Preferable material for insulation should be foam or whatever is best.
Went up into the attic today and found some old bird nests. Not sure how they got in but might have been from when the house was being built.
There is one corner of my attic in which there are bird droppings on the blown insulation.
I think I need to have this removed and new insulation blown in.
I would like some ideas on prices. I would say less than 1/4 of the attic is affected.
The master bedroom's shower stall has a leak. I want to replace it with a new shower stall. I will purchase a new one to be installed. I need someone to take out the old one and replace it with a new one.
I also want to take out the garage ceiling, spray foam it and replace the drywall afterwards.
We have a raised bungalow which means there are two bedrooms over the garage.
The two bedrooms, one in particular, are very cold. While there appears to be some insulation im not convinced it is doing anything.
I would like to have the rooms inspected, identify the source of the cold (again im assuming it is from the garage as the floors in the rooms (hdw) are very cold), and have a quote provided which would address the issue. My guess is insulating the cieling of the garage will address the problem but id like may guess confirmed.
I am looking to insulate and seal the the side wall portions of a shingled Mansard style roof. I am also looking to add some blown attic insulation. If you have experience with this, I am very interested in getting this work done.
I hope to be able to do this fairly economically, but, based on what needs to be done, can increase the budget.
There are three areas that I need insulation, the attic which I would like to have blown in cellulose, and the basement and the garage where I would like to have foam insulation. The house is about 33 years old. The attic has a very thin layer of fibre glass insulation and is about 500 sq ft. The basement is completely unfinished. It will need framing and insulation. The garage roof is finished and is below one of the bedroom. It does not have any insulation. It's about 75 sqft.
Newly purchased house needs a new roof. ~900 square feet. We are hoping for a long-term repair (metal shingles or other). We take possession of the house in mid-November, and would like to have the repairs done sometime before the late spring (weather dependent).
There is also a leak stemming from a poor seal beneath a balcony situated above the garage, which we would also like fixed at the same time.
Insulation between the house and the roof would need to be upgraded as well.
We are looking for a detailed/reliable contractor with experience inspecting roofs for proper insulation.
Our home is around 12 years old and we are looking for an honest/reliable opinion if the current insulation is sufficient or it needs to be added to.
Experienced/reliable contractors who offer free inspections are welcomed and will be contacted for this inspection and quote service.

Would like to find a reputable, experienced contractor to soundproof basement so that noise from upper two floors is not transferred to lower two floors. I have looked into genie clip, blown-in cellulose fiber and green glue solutions
- Top level of basement has family room and bedroom with drywall ceilings to be soundproofed to prevent noise from being overheard from den and bedroom immediately above top level of basement. By speaking to soundproofing experts I have learned there may be two ways to deal with this:
- Blow-in cellulose through ceilings of basement family room and bedroom
- Shave off popcorn from ceiling and sandwich green glue between another layer of 5/8" thick drywall
- Do both
Also, bottom level of basement has ceiling to be soundproofed to prevent noise from being overheard from main level living room - ceiling in bottom level of basement has ceiling tiles. I have learned that there may be two ways to deal with this:
- Install genie clips and replace ceiling tiles with 5/8" thick drywall
- Use Roxul Safe N Sound Insulation above ceiling tiles
Lastly, 2nd level of house (bottom level of main level) is separated from 3rd level of house (top level of basement) by separator wall and lockable pocket door
- Would like to have Masonite Safe N Sound Door installed to replace pocket door
- Would like to consider having cellulose blown-in to the separator wall
- General layout relating to affected rooms & approximate dimensions:
1st level - Master bedroom over top level basement bedroom (14.21 ft x 10.83 ft)
1st level - 2nd bedroom over top level basement family room (11.48 ft x 9.78 ft)
2nd level - Living Room/Dining Room combo over 2nd level basement den (22 ft x 16 ft)
3rd level - Top level basement bedroom (14.11 ft x 9.94 ft)
3rd level - Top level basement family room (22.57 ft x 12.47 ft)
4th level - Bottom level basement rec room (15.42 ft x 9.35 ft)
Would like to move forward with effective, reasonably priced soundproofing solution by experience contractor. Suggestions and estimates from contractors who are experienced with soundproofing are welcome.
Would like to have soundproofing in place by no later than mid-February 2013.
