We were looking for a company to upgrade the attic insulation in our 26 year old 2 story home in Oakville. The old blown-in fibreglass insulation had gotten compressed over the years and just was not doing a good job anymore. Our south-facing master bedroom was terribly hot in the summer, and cold and drafty in the winter. We usually keep the furnace set to 72F, and we were lucky to get the upstairs to 68F in winter. I called a few places, and got a few quotes. We chose Titans to do the work. Shawn was a pleasure to deal with right from the first contact - very professional and with a great sense of humour! Shawn came out to assess our attic, and used modern technology (drone and satellite imagery) to provide us with info on our roof. After seeing the damage where raccoons had been trying to bust through the old plastic vents, we decided to also upgrade the vents, and got a couple of whirly birds put in for active venting. I was afraid they would be large and overbearing, but they are barely visible from the street. After some rescheduling due to weather, the work was completed quickly. Richard and Cody were super nice guys and very professional, and were able to do 99.9% of the work from outside the house! Something we appreciated very much in these Covid times. When Richard (or Cody? hard to tell) did come in the house to insulate the attic hatch, he was suited up in like a whole hazmat suit with ventilator, so we had no concerns about Covid there. Because they did almost all the work of blowing in the cellulose attic insulation from the outside, there was no clean up required indoors at all. The guys went around and tidied up the outside of our property after they were done. That evening, after the guys had left, we noticed that the upstairs was very quiet, much more than it used to be. And then our house started to warm up. After the upgraded insulation, the upstairs warmed all the way up to 71F! Some mornings it even makes it up to 72F! The insulation has made a huge difference. I haven't gotten a heating bill yet, but I expect to see quite a reduction in our gas use. I can hardly wait to see our summertime savings. We will get the guys back to do some eavestrough and aluminum trim work in the spring. Titans RoofWorks gets a 10/10 in my book, and I would not hesitate to recommend them for attic insulation or roof work.

Whoh! This is great! Our unique approach has much positive feedback here! We love hearing the difference we've made, and the savings your benefiting from. All attics have building code ventilation in the attic and on the roof. Condensation is a major issue and is not solved by adding insulation. In fact adding more insulation to a poorly ventilated space adds to the problem. You'll certainly benefit again during the stifling summer as attics reach 150F! Your new roof ventilation will cool your home - this is known as 'Thermal Mass Cooling'.
All the best! We look forward to hearing from you again. Be well.
