Beware Unadvised price increases by J&J Insulation Inc
In September 2021 based upon accurate measurements and photos J&J Insulation, in Port Perry Ontario, provided a quote range dependent upon 3 or 6 inches of sprayed insulation under our sunroom.
Installation dates given for October and then November were cancelled just prior to agreed times.
Finally, the work was finished on December 13, 2021
After the work was completed, we were presented with a verbal bill that was significantly higher that the largest of the two quotes provided in September. Worked out to a 25% increase.
When we questioned this increase the response was:
1. The September quote was only a “ballpark”
2. Our costs have increased 50% since September
3. Quote did not include a fuel surcharge or labour costs
No accounting has been provided 6 days later as to the number of inches sprayed.
From our perspective a price increase should have been advised prior to sending a crew to do the work allowing us the option to accept or decline same.
Additionally, when the original quote was provided there was no indication it was a “ballpark” nor that it did not include a fuel surcharge or labour costs.
Had they undertaken the work in mid October as originally advised price increases may have been avoided.
While the team that did the work were professional and courteous the communications and failure to advise of price increases and additional fees by the owner is not what we expect from a reputable company and potential clients should be aware of these practices. Given the above we would not recommend the company to anyone.
