Spray Foam Insulation in Kawartha Lakes
For professionals in the insulation industry, it’s the general consensus that the best insulation product on the market today is spray foam insulation. When compared to products that are similar, spray foam emerges as a better product, with better attributes. If you are currently shopping for insulation, and if you are considering spray foam insulation in Kawartha, and in the Kawartha Lakes region, this may be the time to consider a contractor like Great Northern Insulation. We stand behind everything we do, with our focus on 100% customer satisfaction.
Great Northern Insulation is a well-respected company and well established in the region. Our installation approach and our work philosophy are based on our company motto - we seal it tight and ventilate it right. Our spray foam installations are managed professionally and expedited by skilled experts. And when an install is complete, there is nothing that comes close to the superior performance of spray foam insulation. Indeed, in comparison to other products or product combinations, spray foam has become the “product of choice” for the team at GNI.
For builders, contractors and renovators, the spray foam product is simply a better product. Generically known as polyurethane foam, GNI routinely recommends the product for use in new construction, renovations, and retrofits. This is because the spray foam application will provide more benefits than other products: it seals up a given area completely and thoroughly; it delivers the highest possible R-value rating; and it adds structural strength throughout the entire area where it is being applied.
For very large and expansive areas, spray foam insulation is the ideal option. It’s the ultimate insulator for spaces like the roof, the attic, or inside wall cavities. And with proper installation, coverage is absolute - a given space is completely coated, with every hole and opening sealed, including all of the hard-to-reach cracks and crevices. No other product coats and seals quite like spray foam. And the final insulation layer is impermeable to air and moisture, which in itself eliminates any need for a separately installed vapor barrier.
When professionally applied, foam insulation is sprayed into an area with special equipment and a nozzle that lets the thick liquid foam spread out uniformly into a given space. The thick liquid expands and hardens into a dense layer of insulation. This layer provides much more than just insulation and has several benefits for the entire building structure: energy efficiency is improved; air circulation and air quality are enhanced; and HVAC equipment is allowed to perform to its full potential. And with everything working in balance, utility bills are reduced.
As part of a comprehensive “insulation system”, a spray foam application can resolve numerous issues at once: higher-than-normal heating and cooling costs are brought down to normal; seasonal heating and cooling cycles are brought into balance; and poor-performing HVAC units start to operate much more efficiently. But regardless of how superior a product might be, it will only perform to its full potential when properly installed. That’s why the install is better left to those who understand the uniqueness of the product, and the nuances of installation.
If you’re shopping for spray foam insulation in Kawartha, Great Northern Insulation has the install team for you – skilled, experienced, and with many years of project expertise. Our people follow established building codes, they obey local by-laws; and they install everything according to the manufacturer’s specifications. At GNI, we do it right the first time, providing our customers with the manufacturer’s warranty, and never compromising our commitment to customer service and satisfaction.
As for installation, we cannot over-emphasize the importance of an expert application. GNI installers are trained, licensed and certified - they prepare the worksite properly - they follow manufacturer’s instructions - and they wear safety gear and protective wear. Most importantly, they properly safeguard the occupants and/or residents. GNI install teams understand the ins and outs of a project and consider the unique challenges of each job. It’s just another way of making sure the job is done right the first time.
GNI recommend products that will suit a customer’s needs. And because we strongly believe in the spray foam product, we routinely recommend it for new construction, renovation projects and retrofits. We will, however, discourage customers from getting into a weekend do-it-yourself project, because spray foam is by no means a DIY project. A proper application requires special equipment, special handling, and special skills. As for the complex nature of an installation – it should be handled by someone with the right training, skill and experience.
Industry data shows a tremendous growth in spray foam usage. Growth is about 40% per year, and it’s primarily because the product has proven itself. And while it is true that the spray foam product is more costly than other products, a “cost-benefit” calculation will quickly show how the upfront expenditure is quite worthwhile over the long term. The thing is, spray foam is a premium product that delivers premium benefits - it lasts a lifetime; doesn’t need replacement; doesn’t need to be replenished; and has a “pay-back” of between 2 and 7 years.
Today, with so much emphasis on improved energy efficiency, proper sealing and insulation has also come into focus. As such, the spray foam insulation product has quickly become the “go to” product for many in the industry.
