We have an older house about 30 years old. This last winter we had a serious issue with “attic rain” where water was dripping from the living room ceiling onto the floor. We set up a pail to catch it. This was February / March. I called up a house inspector who after his inspection of our attic told me our insulation had settled over time and should be improved upon. I called up a local insulation company who refused to add more insulstion; saying it would not do any good.
Ideal Insulation was recommended to me by my building inspector. I called them up; Greg and another man came; investigated my attic and gave me a quote. Few days later the work crew came and blew in more insulation; very clean and efficient. Next day my wife and I noticed our house was a lot cooler on a hot summer day. Just like AC!
Then we got a call from Ideal Insulation saying they needed to reopen our quote. Fearing the worst I met with Greg. He told me the installers didn’t have to do all the work I was being billed for and Ideal Insulation wanted to give me a refund for that portion of the job! Which I gladly accepted!
I am not saying that my story will be your story – but I am saying it’s very refreshing to find a company that is efficient, does good work and is honest. They could have kept the extra money but decided to give it back.
I definitely recommend Ideal Insulation!

The Sales Rep. , young Riley, had all the samples to show, no sales pressure and is very easy going, and went far, far beyond what was required of him before and after the completion of the project !! Roofing foreman also was very easy to get along with. Usually dealing with roofing companies is like dealing with bad car sales people. NOT this company !! Job done in a timely manner. Was treated like a real human being with great respect and consideration. On top of it all –best price in town with a 10 yr. warranty.

Right from my initial contact with Ideal Roofing, Jason Grant was great to deal with. He was quick to get back to me and very thorough when he prepared my roof replacement quotation. He explained all of my options and even drew details to illustrate how the valleys would be roofed. Next, the roofing crew showed up and did an awesome job replacing the roof. They paid attention to detail, I watched them work as they did the front roof and valley and they were very careful to make sure all of the new roof lines are straight and true. They were well organized, quick and courteous and they did a very thorough cleanup!! Now on the wrap up and billing, your email communications have been very clear and convenient. Everyone at Ideal, from quotation, through execution and right up to closing, you have made my re-roofing experience an enjoyable one! The new roof looks awesome, even my neighbors have commented on how great it looks!
Thanks to everyone at Ideal for being so professional!! I’m happy I chose Ideal Roofing to replace my roof.

(My) feedback on the work done by David and Rick. I feel they are dedicated to their work with Ideal as they seemed to work non-stop, except for lunch. Steven was most informative during his first inspection of the attic as well after the attic was vacuumed out..
John T. SW Calgary
Steven is a real asset to your company. He was friendly, professional, very knowledgeable about all the products, answered all my questions with genuine interest, arrived on time and his long term employment and promotion said a great deal about your company.
Your representative and you yourself, with your nice telephone manner made it easy for me to agree to the quote and to proceed with the job.

I am completely happy with the professionalism that I have seen, and speed at which the work was completed.
Jon S. SE Calgary
We are beyond happy with the insulation job; your crew’s honest assessment and easy-to-understand explanation of their recommendations on our situation and how we could improve our insulation were what sold us on Ideal. They bent over backwards to ensure the job was done right a d we couldn’t be happier. Plus they are hilarious to boot, really good guys.
We will definitely leave a review on HomeStars, and would recommend Ideal to friends and family in the future should they ever need any insulation or roofing work done. We will definitely call you back for any roof work we will need in the future too.
Dave B. NW Calgary
It was immediately a noticeable difference in the house particularly in the evening when the sun went down. So much warmer! I am certain it will also help in the summer months to keep the house cooler so a win win in my book.
My next door neighbors might be giving you a call to upgrade their insulation too as I told them about the improvement. Lots of other neighbors to inform and I will give them your company reference.
Jim H. SE Calgary
They were an excellent bunch of guys, and did a bang up job. They were easy to get along with, and obviously had a lot of passion for their product. i.e. they were more than happy to answer all my questions about what they were doing. 😉
The spider crew was also really fantastic and I loved watching it go in. That product is so great that I don’t think I would ever insulate with anything else.
The poly/batt crew could have taken a bit more time on the caulking, but did a good job on everything as well. Their speed was impressive…I’ve never seen two people move so quickly in my life.
Carleton P. Three Hills, AB
We were very pleased with the quick and efficient service, your staff are very polite and clean workers . We would definitely recommend your services to friends or anyone requiring this service.
Pam G. SE Calgary
I have been very impressed with Ideal from start to finish on this job. Your estimating team took the time to make sure the scope was correct (your competitor spent maybe 5 minutes in the attic) and your crew was friendly and efficient.
Evan V. SW Calgary
It’s been 29 months since we first experienced water damage resulting from an Ice Damn in January 2013 and for the first time since then I feel comfortable that we have done everything possible to prevent water from entering our home through the roofing system thanks to Ideal Insulation & Roofing.
I had four BB A+ rated roofing companies quote the job to replace the roof and Ideal was the only company that inspected the attic looking for reasons why the ice damn happened in the first place. Ideal came up with a solution to fix the underlying issue, heat escaping into the attic from the house, and replace the existing roof with a ventilation upgrade at the same time.
I was expecting a pretty major disruption to our life this summer to undertake such a large project, but the project was completed in three stages – remove existing insulation to uncover hidden problems, which they did! Remove existing roofing system and replace with necessary upgrade to prevent water penetration, and then re-insulate the attic. Every member of the Ideal crew was fantastic to interact with and they took a lot of pride in their work. I was expecting two weeks of interruptions based on the neighbors roofing projects and the entire job was complete in 3 days.
I would highly recommend Ideal Insulation & Roofing to my family, friends and clients. I have pretty high expectations and Ideal surpassed them while being very competitive on their price.

I am very happy with the quality and professionalism your guys displayed. On time and extremely courteous. Great Job!
Your quote wasn’t the cheapest but your reputation and quality of work will have me recommending you in the future.
Cameron, D. SW Calgary
The installers were friendly and efficient today! Thank you, I can’t wait to see how much I will save on my power bill this winter!
Derek F. NE Calgary
The guys were on time, very rare these days for trades, and did a good job.
Gary W. SW Calgary
I found Ideal Insulation via the internet; their professional looking web site and long standing insulation services gave me the confidence to call and initiate a quote. Two men arrived and carefully inspected the attic. They invited me to peek through the attic hatch and pointed out the insulation deficiencies and remedies. The next day a detailed quote showed up in my email with work scope and pricing options, I chose the lower cost options and may have additional work completed at a later date. Within a few weeks the same gentlemen arrived, carefully covered the carpeting with drop sheets and worked about four hours insulating the attic as described in the final quote. They left the house as clean as when they arrived but noticeably cooler in the following August days.
Claude B. SE Calgary
Thank you very much for the great work in our attic. I do believe cleaning out the soffits and putting in the proper stops and refilling has done the trick here. Being home all the time, I felt the difference on Friday afternoon after your guys had been here at 7:30 am, which amazed me to say the least.
Thank your guys for us, they were awesome.
Deb & Dave S. NW Calgary

I would like to take this opportunity to express how pleased I am with the work your company provided in the recent re-shingling of my roof. Colin was very professional in his presentation of the products and helpful with the choice of color of which I am very pleased.

IDEAL Insulation has become a valued member of our team at Riverside Developments. For over 10 years, Ideal has provided me with all my insulation needs. Ideal has consistently met the challenge of finding the “right” way to insulate our custom homes. Ideal is truly a “one stop shop” offering everything from basic needs to their innovative line of spray-in products.
Ideals strength, by far, is the quality of people on their staff. Well trained, courteous and professional; they are always a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Ideal Insulation for any of your future projects.
I just wanted to thank you both. Chris did a fantastic job. He cleaned around house, picked up all the nails. He showed up on time and worked tirelessly. Very impressed with his professionalism.
My next door neighbor came out and asked if he could get an estimate.
Thank you all for a job well done.
Richard P. NE Calgary
I called Ideal to quote on work for insulation upgrades to two properties I own, a house and a townhouse, in January 2011. They did onsite inspections and provided me with professional and detail quotations in writing. The scheduling was easy and job completed just as we wanted. I have recommended Ideal to the condo association for work to other townhouses in the complex and I am sure we will be seeing the Ideal people again in the future.
Doug F. SE Calgary
Your staff were in yesterday. Please pass this onto your Manager… They were very courteous, professional and did everything they could to minimize a mess or damage. I really appreciated their professionalism in doing their job.
Gary L. Airdrie
My wife and I are simply delighted and proud of the work that was recently performed by Ideal at our place of residence. The GAF Designer Series product looks beautiful on our house and we shall have all the ‘peace of mind’ of any future hail or wind storms.
Your roofing crew worked very diligently and of course, were very pleasant to correspond with. I have high praise for them as they just finished this September
