  • Leaving a Legacy - Metro Standard Insulation Ltd.

"Our experience has taught us to keep moving ahead with commitment and perseverance while maintaining focus on what our clients expect, which is timely and consistent support. We want our clients to expect more so that we can take their every expectation as a challenge,''-Parm and Amy.

Home is a place of security, comfort, and belonging. Although not always the most visible, to enable this sense of warmth, a home’s insulation is a key propellant as it keeps homes at desired temperatures all year round. Insulating homes in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, Metro Standard Insulation Ltd. is a trusted name in the industry with top-tier insulation contractors, providing services for projects including residential-single family to multi-family, apartments to towers, and commercial. With long-term experience in the industry of more than 15 years, Parm and Amy are taking the company ahead every day and expanding its roots under their visionary leadership as owners/directors.

Coming from the land of Punjab in India, Parm gained experience as an insulator and performed other construction-related jobs in Spain, where he spent seven years. After immigrating to Canada in 2012, he began undertaking insulation jobs. Gradually, Parm decided to become business partners with his life partner, Amy. With Parm’s valuable experience and Amy’s strong aura and entrepreneurial spirit, the couple together faced the highs and lows of the business world. Today, they have reached a point where they are inspiring newcomers in the industry.

Simply put, Metro’s team believes in giving their best. “Our experience has taught us to keep moving ahead with commitment and perseverance while maintaining focus on what our clients expect, which is timely and consistent support. We want our clients to expect more so that we can take their every expectation as a challenge,” inspiringly share Parm and Amy.

In terms of industry trends, the duo points out that there is generally a shift towards more environmentally-friendly products, inclusive of upgrades in technology, techniques, and material. When insulating the home, their top tips include:

Always check the material being used to ensure top-notch quality and accuracy in value as per city requirements.

Never compromise on getting serviced from proper professionals.

Every one of us must contribute in going green and caring for the environment to make this planet a safe home for all.

Moving forward with the vision of attaining heights higher than the buildings they work on, Parm and Amy are fully aware that there may be many material challenges in their way, like competition and recession. However, the power pair believes in following a Sanskrit quote, “ma kadapi tyaj”, meaning “never give up”. Whether it be holding hands to achieve impressive business milestones today or creating a path that can be followed by other startups tomorrow, Parm and Amy are truly leaving a memorable legacy with Metro Standard Insulation Ltd.
