It’s our way of doing the job right the first time, and one of the best reasons for hiring Great Northern Insulation to insulate your attic.
There are many options to choose from when it comes to attic insulation products. The main thing is to choose a product that’s right for the job. Today, most professionals are choosing spray foam insulation as their favorite. From coast to coast, spray foam insulation is considered to be the best product available. When compared to other products, it delivers more benefits, better R-Values, and excellent long-term results. The product is generically known as polyurethane foam, and has become a preferred product at Great Northern Insulation.
Spray foam insulation is applied using special application equipment. It is sprayed out as a thick liquid, spreads out evenly throughout the attic, and hardens into a super-dense layer of insulation. When properly installed, the entire attic is coated, including the wooden crossbeams, the plumbing, the ductwork, and all of the electrical wiring. This is the most effective way to insulate the attic – it’s an envelope of insulation that efficiently insulates, while it provides a solid barrier that is impermeable to air and moisture.
Another product option for the attic is blown-in insulation, an affordable insulation that suits most budgets. It’s available as a fiberglass blown-in product or a cellulose blown-in product. It’s “fluffy” by nature and is manufactured to restrict airflow. A very efficient insulator, the blown-in product is treated to be fire resistant, and also resists mold, mildew and rodents. This is an ideal product for a space like the attic. Properly applied and evenly dispersed, the product can be installed on existing insulation to create a “thermal blanket” with excellent R-value per square foot.
For best overall results, the install teams at Great Northern Insulation prefer the “hybrid” approach when insulating an attic. This installation is a combination of spray foam insulation and blown-in insulation - all in one application. Depending on the project, installers decide on using spray foam WITH fiberglass blown-in OR spray foam WITH cellulose blown-in. In either case, the spray foam product serves as a sealer and insulator, and the blown-in product delivers the excellent value per square foot. Installers at GNI routinely recommend the “hybrid” approach for optimum results.
GNI believes that attic insulation requires a professional install. And although many home centers promote a DIY approach, GNI discourages it. We believe that when it comes to attic insulation, the project is best left to the experts who are experienced and proficient in their work.
