As for choosing the right contractor, it’s sensible to choose a company that is well established, with a good reputation, and recognized for quality work.

This is the best way to make sure that the finished, insulated space will deliver noticeable energy savings and indoor comfort from one season to the next.

And we might say it’s the best reason to contract Great Northern Insulation for attic insulation.
When it’s time to choose the attic insulation product, there are a number of options. Today, most insulation professionals are opting for spray foam insulation. It has become their product of choice. Right across the country, spray foam insulation is being regarded as the best product on the market. It delivers the most benefits when compared to others; it delivers the highest R-Values than any other product; and it delivers the best long-term results. Generically known as polyurethane foam, this insulation product has also become the company favorite at GNI.
When installed, the spray foam is “sprayed” through the attic with special application equipment that allows the formula to spread out and then harden into a dense envelope of insulation. A good install will cover the attic completely - all of the support beams - all of the plumbing – all of the ductwork - and all of the electrical wiring. The finished envelope will be a layer of insulation with the highest R-Value of any comparable product. At the same time, it will serve as an impenetrable air and moisture barrier. In short, a spray foam install is the most effective way to insulate the attic.
Another viable product for the attic is “blown-in” insulation. This is an affordable insulating option that will suit most budgets. It’s available in two compositions - fiberglass or cellulose. The product is “fluffy” in composition and is specifically designed to restrict the flow of air throughout the attic. “Blown-in” insulation is a very effective insulator. It’s treated to resist fire, and will resist mold, mildew, insects and rodents. When properly applied and evenly dispersed, this type of insulation can be easily applied on top of existing insulation to create a very effective “thermal blanket”.
For the very best results in the attic, Great Northern Insulation prefers a “hybrid” approach. It’s an installation that combines the spray foam product AND the blown-in product together. The GNI install team decides on either spray foam WITH fiberglass blown-in, OR spray foam WITH cellulose blown-in. In this “hybrid “ approach, the spray foam component serves as the sealer and insulator, and the “blown-in” insulation provides the excellent dollar-value for the project. GNI will routinely recommend this application approach for the best long-term results.
