Gilles Barbarie of G.B. Construction of Platagenet, Ontario first saw P2000 when he was asked to install it in a new barn project for farmer Marcel DeGroot. “I didn’t believe that such a thin insulation could do all it claimed” but Mr. DeGroot had done his homework and insisted on using P2000. “When I saw the results – I was amazed” says Barbarie. “The new barn with one-inch P2000 insulation did better over the winter than the older barn that had 8 inches of fiberglass.” Mr. DeGroot is very pleased he went with P2000, saying that his new barn is warmer in the winter and noticeably cooler in the summer.
Based on the success at the DeGroot barn, Barbarie was hired to install P2000 Insulation with vinyl siding on a neighboring home. Barbarie said “when I spoke to the customer the following spring, he told me that he had saved a minimum of one-third off his heating bill. Barbarie, a contractor with 25 years building and renovation experience, says “I am now convinced that P2000 is an excellent product and I don’t only recommend it, I plan to use it in the homes I build for customers.”

“We were looking for an easy way to add insulation to our family cottage because we are spending more time there in the fall. We installed P2000 under the roof rafters, and under the floor joists in the crawl space and we immediately noticed a difference. My father is an industrial insulation installer, and he was quite impressed how it works. We’ll be getting more of this next time we insulate.”

“We would like to tell you that we are very happy we used P2000 Insulation to insulate our basement. The basement is much more comfortable than it ever was. We always found it very cool downstairs but now it is much warmer and we have not changed anything with the heating. In fact, since we insulated the basement, our power bill has been consistently less than the same month last year. We installed the 5/8” reflective on both sides type. We applied it to the bare concrete wall using an adhesive and sealed the self-adhesive seams like you told us and found it very easy to install. We have also noticed that this year there has been no snow melting around the foundation wall around the house. In previous years, the snow used to melt away about 8 inches from the wall. This proves to us just how much heat is not getting out anymore and that P2000 Insulation is really working. Next year, we expect to build a new garage, and we definitely intend on using P2000 to insulate it.”

“I got some P2000 to see if it would solve my most annoying insulation problem – keeping my water pump from freezing. I have a pump house in the back yard that has frozen every winter for the last 30 years, until we installed P2000. We tried bails of hay, heavy plastic, fiberglass insulation, and light bulbs in every conceivable combination, and it always managed to freeze. Last fall, I lined the inside walls of the shed with P2000 5/8” insulation board, and it did not freeze once all winter. I am building a new house this fall, and we will be insulating with P2000. It’s great stuff!”

“As a contractor, I have a closet in which I store paints, stains, solvents, etc. to prevent from freezing during the winter months. A couple years ago, I lined the closet with blue foam and kept a light bulb on all the time to keep it from freezing. I found that a 100-watt light bulb barely kept it warm enough to keep things from freezing. When I heard about P2000, I was anxious to try it before I used it for my customers. So I thought I would give it a test run in my paint closet. I replaced the blue foam with P2000 and came back a couple days later. The temperature was over 90 degrees! I put in a 60-watt bulb – and it was still too warm to store my supplies. Now I am using a 40-watt bulb and it keeps the cabinet at a consistent 70 plus degrees.”
