Protection from the Outside
Every room in your home should be warm, comfortable and liveable. If you have cold walls and floors, signs of mould, or ice buildup on your roof, these are clear signs that the insulation in your home may need upgrading.
Insulation Installation Process
1 In-Home Consultation
- At a pre-scheduled time, an Installation Service Professional will visit your home to discuss the insulation options available to you and the benefits of each; answer questions on R values (which rates the effectiveness of your insulation); advise how to reduce drafts in your home and recommend an insulation installation that fits your budget.
- During this visit, the Installation Service Professional will inspect your attic to determine your complete insulation needs and answer any questions you might have.
- You will be given an estimate at the end of the visit.
- To ensure your satisfaction with the installation, it’s encouraged that your family’s key decision makers take a moment prior to your in-home appointment to think about how long you plan to stay in your home, review your monthly energy costs, consider the temperature consistency in the house and make note of your budget as well as any questions you may have about energy efficiency.
- To begin the project, an authorized Home Depot Service Professional will call to arrange an installation date at a time that’s convenient for you. (Take note: Weather may impact the scheduled date and length of the project.) You will be informed of any prior preparations you may need to make.
2 Professional Installation
- An authorized Home Depot Installation Services Professional will coordinate the delivery of all insulation materials to your home. Prior to the installation, care will be taken to protect your home via work areas clearly marked and contained, baffles installed to protect lights, and vents and ventilation into the attic*. Our Service Professional will apply your insulation for optimal effectiveness and debris will be collected and removed. Throughout the project, you will receive regular updates from your Installation Specialist. At all times, the installer will maintain a safe work site and ensure a thorough cleanup.
*Procedures vary based on project scope.
3 Follow-Up Inspection
- Once the insulation installation is complete, your installer will meet with you to perform a final inspection and confirm your satisfaction with the project.

Proper Insulation can Save you Money
Many Canadian homes lack adequate wall insulation and roof insulation, which can end up costing homeowners more money on their energy bills in order to keep their houses warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Adding proper home insulation can save you money and help you use your energy more efficiently. There are many insulation types to choose from, including spray foam insulation, fibreglass insulation, cellulose insulation and more.
Properly insulating your basement can keep it comfortable all year long. Your basement can be notorious as the coldest room in your house. However, you can stop that by properly insulating it against all the weather fluctuation outside. When installing batting on an inside exterior wall, it’s important not to compress it in past the end of the studs. Your insulation should fit snug all around and reach to the top and bottom of the space. When installing batting around wiring or plumbing, split the batting where you can, running one side behind and one side in front to ensure insulation around all areas. You can also stuff small batts around areas like plumbing, vents, windows and doors.
Attic insulation can also be a trouble area, one that can be remedied using blown-in insulation. Once your attic is properly insulated, you’ll be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer without using extra energy.
