Insulate the exterior walls of a 100+ year old farmhouse

I have just had EnviroTech Insulation install Airkrete foam insulation in my 108 year old farmhouse at Cherry Valley Retreat.
Mark & his team were consistently polite and helpful. They did their absolute best to carefully prepare the house and protect my furnishing and property with plastic. They worked long hours to get the disruption in the house over with as soon as possible and they left the house and porch all cleaned up even vaccuming rugs and stairs, which had been covered.

I have had insulation put in the attic and basement as well as all new windows to try and cut down on oil heating costs. My last fill up felt like a mortgage payment so I had to bite the bullet and get this done. Although twice as expensive as cellulose or fibreglass, there are Federal and Provincial grants available to contribute $3000 towards this. I haven't seen a heating season with this yet but I am told I can expect to pay up to 30% to 50% less next winter.
Thanks to you Mark and your team!

UPDATE - Last Saturday Nov 15th, when the snowstorm arrived I watched the power go out at 2.30am. No furnace, water or toilet for my expected 25 people Sunday. I had the woodstove going in the living room and absolutely NO HEAT LOSS!! The power came back on at 11am and the furnace didn't have to, in fact it didn;t kick in for the rest of the day. Only 12 people made it through the storm. It was a great opportunity to explain to all why the house was still cosy.

Without your help my business would be in trouble. The farm
house was always cold and damp-despite insulation in attic and
basement, new roof, new windows, new furnace. Nothing made
it cozy untill Air Krete. Couldn't have people coming in and
being uncomfortable. You've made all the difference!
Not to mention environmentally friendly, non-toxic etc I could
go on and on.

Approximate cost of services:
$6,000.00
