Our house foundation walls required parging coat and we were looking for quotes through homestars. Red Robin Masonry was the first to respond and come pay a visit to give us a quote. They also ended up providing the best quote so we ended up choosing them for the project. Things went smooth and took 2 days to finish but the work was done by Yasir without any issues. He was on time, was very professional and ended up finishing the work on time. I'd highly recommend Red Robin Masonry for any Masonry projects

We were adding Spray Foam insulation to our Garage Ceiling below the joists and found the original builder had left 2 ducts open in between the Garage Ceiling drywall and the sub-floor for the bedroom above the garage. This is totally against the building codes as it is safety hazard if those ducts were supply and return ducts taking the air from the space above Garage. The spray foam insulation company person had suggested Dave's Ducts and I reached out right away. They sent someone from their crew as soon as they can in the middle of their busy schedule and the inspector was pretty thorough and determined the 2 ducts were indeed supply and return ducts from the Furnace. They recommended to cap off the ducts as it would be a hassle to remove the drywall from the basement level and track it there to cap/remove the duct there and suggested it could be done in the future if I were to touch the basement drywalls. Thanks to Dave's Duct for helping us out in a timely fashion, they have an amazing team. Looking forward to use their team for doing full duct cleaning and Aeroseal next summer :)

Based on previous top and the most recent reviews, I reached out to about 4 Spray Foam insulation companies and I received the best quote from Anthony/Exotherm Spray Foam Systems Inc. The quote included the work for two projects. 1. Removing Garage Drywall Ceiling, Removing the existing batt insulation from there, 5 inches (R31) of 2-lb Spray foam over the Garage Ceiling and Re-do the Ceiling Drywall, Cleaning up all the debris. 2. Removing existing R32 Blown-in Cellulose insulation, apply 2 inches (R12) of 2-lb Closed Cell Spray Foam insulation all over the Attic floor and fill the rest with Blown-in Cellulose insulation up to the recommended R60 standard code, along with adding additional Rafter vents, Fiberglass batt insulation soffit damming, Electrostatic Mold Control application, Extruded Polystyrene Rigid insulation panel (R15@3inches), Weather stripping to attic hatch, Cleaning up all the Debris. The Quality of work and the professionalism from Anthony and the Exotherm team was just fantastic. The whole project went perfectly fine. They provided me with lot of pictures before, during and after completing each job and clarified all the doubts I had through the project. Anthony dropped by once when the Spray foam work was going on to check if everything was going fine. The team took a great care with prep work and ensured everything was covered and were extremely careful throughout the whole project. Once they tore down the Garage Ceiling Drywall, we found that the original builder had left a Supply and a return duct open and it had been left functional and stayed between the Garage Ceiling Drywall and below the Subfloor of our bedroom (above the Garage), which is against the building code. I felt the difference with the quality of insulation, run time of AC and Furnace and temperature within the house before and after this project. The bedroom above the Garage used to get pretty cold and the temperature difference during late September would be at least 4-5 degrees below the temperature in our Family room but right now, it remains pretty close to the temperature at our family room. The Closed Cell Spray foam also added rigidity to our bedroom floor, which is pretty awesome. Can't wait to see how things are during the peak winter time. Anthony was quite understanding about the situation and he actually helped with providing contact details of another company (Dave's Ducts) who helped us with inspecting the ducts and confirmed that they are indeed Supply and Return ducts and needs to be capped. Anthony was flexible with moving the date for completing the Ceiling Drywall in the meantime I got that "Duct Problem fixed". Anthony and Exotherm team are just fantastic and hands down one of the best professional Companies to work with. I had the pleasure to know them and I am really glad I chose to have this project completed by Anthony's team. I would definitely recommend Exotherm to anyone who wants to get the insulation done. I would definitely reach out to Anthony in order to have our entire Basement insulation redone if needed. Thank you Anthony and the Exotherm Team once again, you guys are the absolute best :) - Shiva
