In 1979, Rick Forrest founded what is popularly known as Energy Kingston Exteriors. The parent company is still Energy Kingston Insulation Ltd. In the early years, the service offered was blown cellulose insulation and other air sealing and weather-stripping alternatives.
In and around 1982, the services were expanded to address the whole exterior of the home. This includes windows, doors, patio doors, skylights, rigid insulation, siding, fascia/soffit/trough and down pipe, asphalt shingle roofing and carpentry.
At the time of expansion, the company’s name morphed into Energy Kingston Exteriors Inc. (as its carry on business name). This name highlighted the expanded exterior upgrades and retrofitting services offered.
In 2007, Rick Forrest retired and the parent company was passed to Mike and Debbie Goulding, who own and operate it to date.
