For the insulation team at GNI, attic insulation begins with sealing - we seal up every opening, hole and gap, making sure that the entire attic is airtight. Sealing ensures that the insulation performs to its potential, providing energy savings from one season to the next (cold winters and hot summers). By sealing effectively, and then insulating properly, the GNI team creates a complete “system” - an attic that is effectively sealed, well ventilated, and properly insulated. It’s a “system” that delivers exceptional benefits to the homeowner in the short term and for many years to come.
There are several insulation products that would be suitable for the attic. However, today, most insulation professionals are choosing spray foam insulation. It has become a favorite insulation product and has quickly become the “go to” product for expansive spaces like the attic. In short, spray foam is considered the best product in the market. It delivers the most benefits. It delivers the highest R-Values. And it delivers the best long-term outcomes. The installation teams at Great Northern Insulation are in full agreement, and spray foam has also become their favorite.
When applied, spray foam is “sprayed” into the attic using special equipment that spreads the foam uniformly throughout. It quickly hardens into a super dense envelope of insulation, and completely coats everything. The entire attic is covered - support beams, plumbing pipes, ductwork, and all cables and electric wiring. When finished, the insulated space has the highest R-Value of any other product, and provides an impervious air/moisture barrier at the same time. There is no better way to insulate the attic, and no better product on the market that can compare.
Another product option for the attic is “blown-in” insulation. It’s available in fiberglass or cellulose composition, and is affordable for most any budget. “Blown-in” insulation is ideal for the attic - its “fluffy” nature is designed to restrict airflow throughout the attic, making it an effective insulator. The product is also fire resistant; mold and mildew resistant; and inhibits insects and rodents from collecting. When properly installed, and evenly distributed, the “blown-in” product can be easily applied right on top of existing insulation, providing an excellent “thermal blanket”.
For the very best in attic insulation, GNI recommends a “hybrid” approach. This is an installation that combines the spray foam product AND the blown-in product in one application. The installer would use the spray foam product along WITH the fiberglass blown-in product, OR the spray foam product along WITH the cellulose blown-in product. This “hybrid “ approach uses the spray foam to seal and insulate, and uses the “blown-in” product to provide additional insulation and excellent dollar-value. GNI regularly recommends this approach as one of the best for attic insulation.
