Attic repairs

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

We had racoons invade our attic. Kent the owner helped get rid of them, he even drove one in a cage out into the country. The Knox family fixed the damage for the price they quoted promptly.I would use this company again without question. Kym in Stouffville

Knox Insulation Observations

I am a Licensed Energy Advisor. I have performed hundreds of home energy audits. As an Energy Advisor I am bound by guidelines. I can share with homeowners ideas for improving their homes energy efficiencies. I am not permitted to refer one supplier over another. I have observed good work done and I have also seen poor work done. I have gone into many homes "after" work has been done by Knox Insulation, Peatson's Heating & Air Conditioning, George Kent Home Improvements, etc, etc. If I follow a supplier or retailer into a home and there is a question of quality or ethics, I never mention their name in conversation. It seems unethical to me to condemn a firms work or practices without idenifying yourself or not giving the firm the opportunity to defend themselves. I mentioned above some of the firms that I have followed into homes and without exception in all cases I have not come across any unhappy homeowners, any bad practices or bad workmanship. I am bound to advise any homeowners to be smart consumers and comparison shop. Also try and talk to "PEOPLE YOU KNOW" that have had good experiences with suppliers and contractors. Be very careful if forming an opinion strictly based on internet articles you have read by someone who does not identify themselves. They may be hiding the true motive behind their article. Homestars is a place where we have a chance to "help" each other. John Campbell energyandauditservices@rogers.com

Insulated Attic and installed venting

Knox insulated 2 homes for me, one I live in and one we rent, the best thing about them is that they showed up when they said, did what they said, cleaned up and you would not have known they were there if you had not seen them.
Our own home has improved in comfort and heating bills have fallen at least 20%. No complaints from the rental now either.
They were referred and are a very good choice.

Attic Insulation

Instead of simply "doing a job" they ensured it was what I needed ! They recommended a home audit, before they did any work, which overall saved me $$$! They were prompt, clean, and did an excellent job. Would definitely recommend them.

additional attic insulation and vents

We found Knox Insulation in the Yellow Pages. They were 1 of 3 companies that we called for estimates. From our initial phone call to the completion of the job, we were totally impressed with the prompt, courteous, and professional job. And their price was MUCH better than the other companies. We would highly recommend Knox Insulation. It is rare to get such great service today!!!!

Attic insulation retrofit

They came, they did the work, they cleaned, they left. Knox added insulation to our attic and we have now turned our thermostat down 2 degrees. I new it would make a difference but not this much.

attic insulation

Friends of mine were price comparing and they came across Knox Insulation. My friends gave me a few of the names of the companies that they had researched. I called Knox first and spoke to Kent. He refered me a company to do an energy audit, that I was aware of but was not sure about the benefits. He quickly explained about the benefits and I followed his suggestion. I booked the audit, and 4 days later I booked the insulation. Because of that I've already saved money. Now Existing in my attic was pink insulation. I wanted to remove it but I have a 2mth old baby and a 2 yr old, which take up alot of time and I wasn't able to get all of it out. Kyle and another guy came on the day and happily, helped me remove the rest of the pink insulation. Unfortunetly due to unforseen trouble, we had to reschedule in the middle of removing the pink insulation. they were great about it and reschedule me on the spot for 2 days later. They came back did some more final touch ups and also helped with an exhaust fan duct instal. They were clean, professional and friendly.
I will recommend them to anyone that I know that needs this type of service.

Soundproofing

This is the second property Knox's has done soundproofing in the floor between two units for me in a house. The guys work hard and fast drilling holes in the floor and filling the space between each joist with the cellulose. They cleaned up. The only thing they missed was filling the holes up with spray foam which I did after a quick trip to the hardware store. When you then add a nice thick underpad and carpet you pretty much eliminate voice and tv sounds between apts.

add insulation to attic and fix icicle problem

I used Knox Insulation in my Victorian farm house in the 1990s. He did the job we agreed on promptly and efficiently. I needed him for an emergency roof leak in my new house in 2006 when a monsoon rain caused a leak. He came the next day to diagnose and solve the problem. This year, in the new house, I had the attic insulation topped up and an icicle trouble diagnosed and fixed. He has always been reliable, professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him. Yes, dust covers would have been nice but if I had thought of them I could have provided some myself. Insulation, realistically, is messy stuff.
