Thanks for the great job!

I am a renovation contractor and have worked with other insulation contractors. Dave took as much time as was required to completely understand the insulation requirements as this was a complex renovation which included addressing previous spray foam insulation deficiencies and not all areas were completely accessible. His crew was very professional and their instructions from Dave were detailed enough that they had a complete understanding of the job.
I was very pleased as the contractor and the homeowner is relieved to now have a very well insulated living space.

Professional, communicative and took a real interest in my job

Dave and his crew were professional, respectful, prompt and reliable. He took the time to fully understand our needs before proceeding, allowing us to get extra work done by others first to make sure the installation was more effective. I would highly recommend Bob Jarvis Insulation and am thankful we were put in touch with them.

Well done Jarvis Insulation

We couldn't be more pleased.
We recently moved into our new home and found our insulation to be inadequate, prompting us to upgrade our current R values. We reviewed several locally owned and operated insulation companies and settled on Bob Jarvis Insulation to do the job for us. We couldn't be happier with our choice. We quickly received a call back and set up a date and time with a representative from Jarvis insulation to go over our concerns and needs. During our meeting we were advised of all option,processes incentives and rebates that were available to us. We were very impressed with the professional, knowledgeable and friendly approach of the rep. We felt very comfortable with Dave and entrusted our home needs to him and his crew.
True to his (Dave) word the crew showed up on the date and time agreed upon and completed the work within the day specified. The work was done in an expedient and friendly manner, with a white glove touch. Once the job was completed you could not even tell that they had even been in the house.
All things considered even taking into consideration government rebate delays (government issues, not contractors) We would have to say this was a positive experience and are confident in recommending Bob Jarvis Insulation to anyone looking for a professional top notch group to handle your home insulation concerns/needs.

Attic insulation top up

I highly recommend Bob Jarvis Insulation. i recently had my attic insulation topped up as I felt my house was feeling cold during this winter season. Dave Jarvis came out to complete the estimate, and within 2 weeks the job was completed. Their employees are very polite and extremely knowledgeable. The job was completed in the time it was quoted, and I am extremely satisfied. Thanks again guys, I appreciate your work! C. Morris

Lousy back office operations and poor rectification of damages done during installation process

Initial inquiry for a quote went unanswered. My contactor contacted them afterwards and they finally decided to give us a quote. On the day of the install the installer backed up their truck into the gable of my roof and damaged the facia along the gable. He did not tell us this this, and hoped we would not notice. We noticed it almost right away after we paid him. Getting this sorted out took 6 weeks with constant push back and reminders. When it did get fixed the job was done poorly resulting in exposure of additional scratches etc. We sent a photo to Bob Jarvis Insulation to which they said that they couldn’t see anything and it looked fine. After another blatant photo with the scratches clearly circled we didn’t receive any feedback however the same crew showed up the next day and corrected the problem, only to replace the facia (single piece) with a shade that varied a bit from the existing colour. I was so sick of dealing with this that at this point I just let it go. The installers said the difference in shade is due to weathering. If that is the case then the entire facia on the gable should have been replaced rather than just one piece.
The payment for the work done is expected the same day the insulation is done. They are very quick to take your money but when it comes to dealing with your refunds or rebates, there is absolutely no haste on their part. Initially there was a month long delay due to a claim by Bob Jarvis Insulation that the process changed and they needed additional information – this only came out after we followed up as to what’s going on with the rebate. After the additional information was provided, we inquired almost a month later as to what is going on with the rebate again. There was no response from the company to the inquiry; however the following day we got an email from Green-ON rebate center to confirm the information that was submitted – this means they didn’t submit the rebate information for two months.
I am by no means impressed with the service by this company. Hiding damages, slow response to problems, and expecting payment right away but delaying processing rebates would have me considering other providers if I had more insulation needs.

Attic Insulation

Scheduled Jarvis to come in and top up the builder grade insulation in our attic to improve the insulation / help warm up the house more / cut heating costs. They put in blown in insulation and one thing I really liked was they recommended a specific material that mice don't like the smell of.....really appreciated this, since every home gets attic mice. Arrived on time, put blanketing on the floor so the blower tube didn't get the carpet dirty, and it was pretty quick. Happy overall and did notice the upstairs was a bit warmer after the added insulation as well. Would recommend them.

Insulation Instal

I had Jarvis Insulation install some batt insulation and some foam insulation. I was please with their work and professionalism. The sign of a good company is not if they have problems, but how they handle them. Mike in their main office was very professional in working out any issues that occurred and I am very happy with their service. The install crew were also a great bunch of guys. I had a positive experience with this company.

attic insulation

8 years ago they blew insulation in my attic.while installing bathroom potlites this year i discovered mould throughout my attic. they had covered up 75% of my soffit vents thus reducing my ventilation by this amount. because i paid cash i have no receipt so they are taking no responsibiliy for this. it is going to cost me close to 10 grand to rectify this problem. stay clear of this company
