Welcome to Arctic Attics

We are licensed, insured, WSIB certified and BBB accredited, so you can rest assured when you hire this family owned and operated business, you will get the attention and workmanship you deserve.

Home Insulation - Retrofit Wall Insulation

Older homes typically have little to no wall insulation, this can lead to uncomfortably drafty rooms and expensive energy bills.

Arctic Attics can retrofit high quality fibreglass insulation into your home's walls without removing any drywall. This can be done from outside the house through the mortar, although we recommend installation through the drywall on the interior of the house.

Using only a few small holes, we easily blow the insulation into your walls, then these holes are plugged and can be easily covered and painted.

Home Insulation - Attic Insulation

Your attic is the coldest portion of your house in the winter, and the hottest portion in the summer.

Depending on the builder of your home, even newer houses can come insulated to only R32 in the attic, older homes typically have less than that.

Government recommendation is to insulate to R50 to maximize heat savings, it has been shown that heat loss through the attic can be reduced by up to 80% by reinsulating to R50 or R60.

Fibreglass vs Cellulose Insulation?

A question you might ask yourself, "Should I use fibreglass insulation or cellulose insulation?"

At Arctic Attics, we would like to help you answer that question.

Fibreglass insulation is the industry standard. It is currently used by builders in 70% of new homes, and has a long history of usage dating back to at least 1933.

Mould Treatments

There are a number of techniques that concern mould growth, but unfortunately this inundation of solutions can lead to confusion and, in some cases, answers that are expensive at best and questionable at worst.

Being in the insulation business, we've seen the effects first-hand that inadequate insulation can cause. Unfortunately, we also saw a number of lackluster and expensive solutions proposed to home owners following a mould discovery.

Here at Arctic Attics, we were unsatisfied with these, and other, options. We were determined that mould removal need not be expensive, nor should anyone need to stand in a stuffy attic manually scraping mould from the wood.

The Arctic Attic Difference

The Arctic Attics owners and operators

At Arctic Attics, we understand that when it comes to insulating your home, there is a plethora of options available. A quick glance at a leading building material store's website offers well over a hundred different insulation materials alone.

A number of companies will send a salesperson out to quote a property owner a job and complete it within the provided time frame within the promised quote. While this is adequate, at Arctic Attics, we are not satisfied with adequate. We aim to deliver exceptional service.

Contrary to large companies, we do not use salesmen, we establish and develop lasting business relationships through use of fibreglass insulation experts.
