For insulation professionals in the industry, spray foam has become their product of choice. It is generically known as polyurethane foam, and is simply regarded as a better product when comparisons are made. Spray foam insulation does a much better job of sealing; it provides a better R-value rating than other products; and it adds structural strength where applied. For the professionals at Great Northern Insulation, there’s no better insulation product, which is why we routinely recommend spray foam for an insulation project.
Many insulation professionals look at spray foam as the ultimate insulating product. It’s ideal for expansive spaces like the attic, the roof, or right inside the walls. And best of all, a proper application provides total coverage. During an installation, the foam insulation is sprayed from a nozzle attachment, and spreads out evenly in its thick liquid form. It expands into place, and quickly hardens into a super-dense layer. When the installation is finished, the entire area is coated, including every little crack and crevice. No other product has this kind of coverage.
An expert application will result in a layer of insulation that is completely impervious to both air and moisture. In fact, spray foam insulation eliminates the need for a vapor barrier, which saves time and money. But the application provides much more in terms of benefits: energy efficiency is optimized; indoor air circulation is enhanced, which also improves air quality; and HVAC equipment operate to it full potential. With the home now “breathing” properly, and with everything working in balance, seasonal utility bills are also reduced.
At Great Northern Insulation, we often hear from homeowners and contractors, who ask if the spray foam product is right for them. And most every time, our answer is YES. We just think that spray foam insulation is the best, especially when installed as part of an entire insulating “system”. Over and over again, the results seem to confirm the efficacy of the product. With a proper installation, several issues can be resolved – higher than usual heating/cooling costs; imbalanced heating/cooling cycles; and under-performing HVAC equipment.

Spray foam insulation was developed in the 60s. It was used in industrial applications, and was an excellent insulator for use in freezers, coolers, and cold rooms. The product was improved over the years, and has become the superb insulation product we use today. The professional installers agree that spray foam insulation is the best for sealer and insulator for large spaces like the attic and the roof. At Great Northern Insulation, we recommend the product for use in new construction, retrofits, and renovations (residential and commercial).

Recent industry statistics show exponential growth in the popularity of spray foam (it’s about 40% a year in the last decade). The popularity has grown primarily because the product has proven itself in all applications. And while it’s true that spray foam could be more costly than other insulation products, a simple “cost-benefit” assessment shows that the expense is worth it. This is a premium product, and it delivers premium benefits: it lasts a lifetime, without the need to replace; it doesn’t need to be replenished; and the “pay-back” is between 2 and 7 years.
