With fire hazards increasing, it is important to make your home fireproof.

We know fires happen suddenly and unexpectedly, which is why we offer fireproofing services in Toronto to give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home will be protected.
When a fire occurs in a building, the structure and its contents are exposed to destructive high temperatures, flammable materials, and high levels of toxic smoke and gases. This combination of factors persists for minutes or even hours, endangering firefighters and building occupants while also presenting a significant risk to nearby buildings. Fireproofing steel and concrete structures is essential to both reduce the risk of fire-induced collapse and preserve the building’s integrity so that firefighters can do their job more safely and effectively.
Fireproofing is the process of protecting steel and concrete structures from fire and heat exposure with the goal of delaying structural failure and ensuring public safety. Fireproofing can be a passive or active process. Passive fireproofing utilizes non-combustible materials, whereas active fireproofing introduces an element that actively resists heat and can even extinguish a fire. The use of fireproofing in buildings is a form of passive fire protection (PFP).
Fireproofing spray in Toronto can be installed underneath the roof deck and between steel beams to act as an insulator between the roof deck ceiling joists and the roofing material. This insulation helps reduce heat flow into the roofing material, extending its lifespan by protecting it from damage from high temperatures. It also carries a Class A fire rating, which means the material won’t burn or support combustion when exposed to high temperatures or direct flame impingement.
When it comes to fireproofing in Toronto, many different types of products can be implemented. One of the most typical methods is to use cementitious fireproofing.
Cementitious fireproofing is a material that contains properties that are resistant to fire. This material is used in the construction of buildings to minimize the risk of a fire starting and minimize the damage caused by any fire when one does start. There are two main areas in which cementitious fireproofing is applied: on structural components and between the joists or floorboards in a building.
A disadvantage of fireproofing can be that it can be an expensive process, and it can complicate the construction process, but the financial and health costs of fires can be much higher than these costs. Fireproofing will provide working and living spaces with a boost in safety, comfort and protection.

I have a cottage in Muskoka, and we rent it throughout the year. We have noticed during the winter that our clients have been complaining about the heat not being good enough. After consulting it with Ecostar Insulation contractors, we decided to go with them, and I have no regrets. Out cottage has never been warmer in the winter. Great Price and Professional Work.
Every winter for the past 4 years since I moved into this house, it has been cold inside my house. I tried getting different heaters, changing the ventilation, but the problem was actually in the insulation. The house is very old, and it cost me a lot of money during the winter time. BUT not anymore!! thanks to EcoStar Insulation. I have enjoyed last winter more than anything. Great job guys and keep it up. Tom.
We had a big project on our way, and our biggest issue was who will handle the insulation part. After contacting a few companies, EcoStar Insulation has proven to us that they are very professional, and they definitely stood to their word and got this done in time and without any issues. THANKS AGAIN!!!
We just bought a new unit and as we were renovating it, we noticed there wasn’t any insulation inside. Luckily, everything was stripped and ready for insulation, so we contacted Ecostar and their professional contractors have done a phenomenal job.
