Attic Insulation in North York

When you’ve decided that it’s the right time to insulate your attic, there are a few things should be considered.  For one thing, it’s important to choose the right attic insulation product.  In addition, it’s important to choose a good contractor.  Finally, it’s important to understand your needs, and the challenges of your particular job.  As far as choosing a contractor, you want a company with a good reputation, and with well-established credentials. So if it’s time to insulate your attic, and if you’re shopping around for attic insulation in North York, Great Northern Insulation is worth considering. It’s a company you can rely on for both products and service.

Known as Canada’s largest full-service insulation contractor, Great Northern Insulation sells top-quality products; provides superior installations; and delivers customer service that is unequalled in the industry.  GNI wants customers to be well informed.   It means that they understand the nature of the project much better, and can make decisions that are informed.  The thing is, with so much advertising and marketing, it can be difficult to determine which attic insulation is the right one.  Manufacturers promote their products as the best, and contractors promote themselves as the best.  And in the end, there are more questions than answers.  

When you decide to hire a company like Great Northern Insulation, you’re in store for a service approach that is comprehensive from start to finish.  We make sure to address your needs, and to attend to the specific challenges of the job.  Most importantly, we provide you with solutions – attic insulation solutions that deliver results for the long term.  At GNI, we do the job right the first time, and that means an installation that satisfies the customer fully, and a finished product that satisfies the challenges.  With GNI, you can be sure of top-quality products and top quality workmanship.  And best of all, everything we sell and install is guaranteed.

When you contract Great Northern Insulation for your attic insulation needs, you’re in competent hands from the start of the project to the end.  We provide the same level of customer service for every job, regardless of scope.  The GNI team starts with a thorough assessment of the attic space, follows up with an in-depth report, and then provides recommendations for customer approval.  We always recommend the product, or combination of products, that will suit the job best, and our objective is to resolve the challenges that are posed.  We also take into consideration the customer’s budget with the products and installations that we propose.

For Great Northern Insulation, customer satisfaction is the highest priority.  We routinely provide the manufacturer’s warranty for products we install, and also provide our own company guarantee when all work is complete.  In the event of a problem, we do everything to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.  Where there’s a need for repairs or replacement, we provide a resolution that meets industry standards.  So if you’re considering attic insulation in North York, or in any of the local communities throughout the GTA, GNI can deliver the goods – a finished job, using the best quality products, and installed with expertise. 

For GNI, every attic insulation job begins with a proper sealing of the attic.  We seal all the openings, holes and gaps throughout the attic as a preparatory step before we install the insulation product.  The result is an attic space that is properly sealed and insulated for the long-term, providing energy savings and improved home comfort for years to come.  As for installing the insulation product itself, we always opt for the product that suits the task, and today, most professionals are choosing spray foam as their first choice.  Right across the country, it’s being acknowledged as the product with the most benefits, and the best overall results. 

Generically, the spray foam product is referred to as polyurethane foam.  We spray it throughout the attic space using specialized application equipment – it spreads out as a thick liquid and quickly hardens into a super-dense layer of insulation.  With an expert install, the attic is completely coated from one end to the other.  In fact, the dense foam envelope covers everything:  the wood support beams in the attic; the plumbing and ductwork; and all of the electrical cables and wiring.  Once installed, spray foam insulation provides the best R-value of any insulation product, and serves as a barrier that’s impenetrable to both air and moisture.

Another product worth considering for the attic is blown-in insulation.  It’s an affordable option and designed to suit most every budget.  The product is available in two compositions - fiberglass or cellulose – and each composition has its own benefits.  Blown-in insulation is “fluffy” in nature, and when installed, it effectively restricts airflow, making it an excellent insulator.  Both fiberglass and cellulose are chemically treated to resist fire, mold, and rodents, which is ideal for a space like the attic.  The insulation is blown throughout the attic, and is uniformly distributed using special application equipment.  It creates a “thermal blanket” with an excellent R-value rating.

For Great Northern Insulation, the preferential approach for the attic is a “hybrid” approach.  It’s a combination application that uses two separate products - one product is the spray foam, the other is the blown-in product.  The GNI install team will choose a product combination depending on the job at hand – they will choose spray foam + fiberglass OR spray foam + cellulose.    In the “hybrid” application, the spray foam serves as a sealer and insulator, while the blown-in product provides additional insulation with excellent value per square foot.  This is an application that delivers a great insulation outcome and superior value at the same time.

In the last few years, home centers have been promoting the DIY approach to attic insulation. But GNI believes that a professional approach is the preferable approach.  We believe that BOTH the products and the installation are best left to the professionals, mainly because an attic insulation project requires experience and expertise to get optimum results.  At GNI, we have that experience and expertise.  We provide our customers with a complete insulation “system” – an attic space that is well sealed, well ventilated and well insulated.  It’s the only kind of job you’ll get when you contract Great Northern Insulation to insulate your attic.
