Framing, Insulation & Drywall

For framing, we use a combination of wood studs and metal studs to take advantage of the properties of both materials. As a general rule, wood is stronger and steel is straighter.

We can use fiberglass batt insulation that fits between wood or metal framing studs or blown-in fiberglass for attics or spray foam for unique situations, especially for vaulted ceilings where no cold air space (traditional attic) is available. We also offer Roxul sound batts to reduce noise transfer between rooms or between a main floor and basement ceilings when finishing basements.

For drywall, we use Simcoe Building Supplies as our preferred supplier mainly because of their awesome delivery service where their 4 man crew will physically carry our deliveries inside our customers’ houses to the specific work areas that we designate. We also like to support local businesses. After we install the drywall, we take the taping and finishing very seriously in 2 ways.

We make the finishing mint (pun intended). We typically apply 4 coats of drywall compound after doing a large cavity prefill with sheetrock 90. We do not sand between coats. Cleanliness – Again, we do not sand between coats. We run our commercial quality dust extractor in our work areas the whole time that the drywall and taping process is happening. When we do sand we use the Festool drywall sanding machine that we hook up to our Festool dust extractor. We tarp off work areas where possible and always turn off our customers’ HVAC systems/AC or heat whenever possible while any sanding of drywall takes place.

I was extremely pleased with Mintcon’s recent renovation of my basement. I provided some inspiration photos and the end... result was very consistent with my expectations. My vision included a feature wall with linear fireplace and mantel, shelves on both sides of the fireplace, and a dog niche under the stairs. In addition, a 2 piece bathroom was constructed. Scott and his team were professional and took good care to minimize dust and debris by using dust extractors on their power tools. Scott communicated continually throughout the process to keep me informed of their timing, supply chain challenges and any issues that arose. I would definitely recommend Mint-con and would not hesitate to recommend them or use them more

I contracted Scott (Mintcon) to take care of installing some fixtures in my new home which entailed some challenging... heights, as well as electrical, drywall and painting work.

They ensured I was completely satisfied and kept my home clean and organized throughout the duration of the work. They are very customer-service oriented, pleasant and professional. I have recommended Scott to other friends already and will contract him again in the future for any additional work I more
