Attic insulation at GNI begins with sealing. We completely seal every hole, gap, crack and crevice – it’s our objective to make the attic airtight. Proper sealing guarantees that the insulation performs to its full potential, providing measurable energy savings during the cold winter and throughout the hot summer. Proper sealing and effective insulating allows for an efficient “system” – we create an attic space that is completely sealed, properly ventilated, and well insulated. It becomes a “system” that delivers significant benefits to the homeowner, in the short term AND the long term.
Clearly, there are many insulation products on the market, with some designed specifically for the attic. In more recent years, insulation professionals have come to regard spray foam insulation as the best. It has become a favorite at GNI, especially for those large, expansive areas like the attic and roof. Over and over, spray foam insulation has proven to be the best product on the market, and when compared to others, it has far more benefits, while offering the highest R-Value of all. At Great Northern Insulation, spray foam has become the all-round preferred installation.
When expertly applied, spray foam insulation is “sprayed” into the attic using special equipment that spreads the foam uniformly. It quickly hardens into a dense layer of insulation and coats all of the wooden support beams, plumbing pipes, HVAC ductwork, and electrical wiring. The finished coating provides an insulated space with the highest R-Value of any product. It also provides an impervious barrier to both air and moisture. Simply put, there is no better attic insulation than spray foam, and no other product that can deliver so many benefits at one time.
Another worthwhile product for the attic is “blown-in” insulation (as fiberglass or cellulose). This is an affordable insulation product with a “fluffy” composition that is intended to restrict airflow in the attic. “Blown-in” insulation is a very effective insulator - ideal for the attic - fire resistant - mold and mildew resistant - and resistant to insects and rodents. When expertly installed, this product can be applied on top of existing insulation (clean and uncontaminated) and can provide a superb “thermal blanket” with an impressive R-Value.
For the best possible attic insulation, GNI recommends a “hybrid” approach. GNI installers combine the spray foam product and the blown-in product in one application. Installers will use the spray foam product along with the fiberglass blown-in product, OR the spray foam product along with the cellulose blown-in product. The spray foam seals and insulates, and the “blown-in” insulation adds additional R-Value, while providing excellent dollar-value. GNI installers will often recommend the “hybrid” application because of the outstanding insulation value and the exceptional cost value.
