Attic insulation products are many and varied. The important thing is to select the right product for the job at hand. And today, more and more professionals are selecting spray foam insulation as the product-of-choice. The spray foam product is being universally recognized as the best product on the market. When compared to similar products on the market, the spray foam has many more benefits, and much better long-term outcomes. It is generically known as polyurethane foam in the business, and has quickly become the product-of-choice at Great Northern Insulation.
The spray foam application uses special equipment and special techniques. It’s sprayed out in thick liquid form – it spreads out uniformly – and it hardens quickly into a dense layer of insulation. With a proper installation, the entire attic space is completely coated: wood beams, plumbing, ductwork, and all the electric wiring. It remains the most effective application for insulating the attic. In fact, it provides a higher R-Value than any other product, while serving as an efficient and impermeable barrier to both air and moisture.
Another product worth considering is blown-in insulation. This is an affordable product for the attic, and will suit most budgets. Two compositions are available: fiberglass or cellulose. Blown-in insulation has a “fluffy” composition and is designed to restrict airflow. It’s therefore an efficient insulator, and is also specially treated to resist fire, mold, mildew and rodents. Clearly, this is an ideal application for the attic. When properly applied and properly distributed, this product can be applied on top of existing insulation – it creates a “thermal blanket” with excellent R-Value.
For the installation teams at Great Northern Insulation, the “hybrid” approach for attic insulation is the preferred approach. It’s a combination of spray foam insulation AND blown-in insulation. Installers decide on the spray foam product PLUS the fiberglass blown-in product OR the spray foam product PLUS the cellulose blown-in product. Either way, the spray foam application acts as a sealer and insulator, while the blown-in application provides the great dollar value. GNI installers are routinely recommending the “hybrid” approach for best results.
At GNI, we believe that attic insulation demands a professional installation, and while many home centers are promoting the DIY approach, GNI usually discourages it. We believe that attic insulation is best left to the experts – those with experience and expertise in their field.
