For the professionals at GNI, attic insulation begins by sealing the attic. We seal every hole, gap and crack as a first step, prior to installing the insulation. When the attic space is properly sealed, the insulated space will provide better overall results, with enhanced energy savings and improved home comfort. As for installing the insulation, we always use the product that best suits the project, and today, we routinely choose spray foam insulation as our product of choice. Indeed, many professionals are touting spray foam as the insulation with the most benefits, and the best results. It’s known generically as polyurethane foam, and has become the favorite of installers nationwide.
Spray foam insulation is applied throughout the attic using special equipment, which allows the foam to spread out as a thick liquid. It quickly hardens into a thick, dense layer of insulation that envelops everything. Expertly installed, the spray foam coats the attic completely from end to end. Everything is covered and sealed - the wooden support beams; the plumbing pipes; the heating ducts; and all the electric wiring. When installed to the manufacturer’s specifications, spray foam provides the best R-value of any product. At the same time it serves as an impermeable barrier to both air and moisture – it’s the perfect sealer and insulator in one.
Another insulation product associated with the attic is blown-in insulation. This is an affordable and effective product that will suit every budget. Blown-in insulation is available in two main compositions: fiberglass or cellulose. The insulation has a “fluffy” composition, so that it restricts airflow, and consequently serves as an insulation layer. Both the fiberglass and cellulose options are treated to resist fire and mold, as well as insects and rodents (ideal attributes for the attic). The insulation is blown through the attic and is uniformly distributed using special blowing equipment. It settles down as a complete “thermal blanket” that delivers excellent R-value.
For GNI, the preferred approach in the attic is a “hybrid” approach. The “hybrid” approach to attic insulation combines two products - one is spray foam, the other is blown-in. Depending on the task at hand, GNI installers choose the product combination that suits best – either spray foam PLUS fiberglass OR spray foam PLUS cellulose. In the “hybrid” install, the spray foam product acts as a sealer and insulator, and the blown-in product serves to further insulate and provide the excellent value per square foot. It’s an application that provides the customer with optimum insulation and the very best dollar value.
Customers sometimes ask us about the do-it-yourself approach to attic insulation, and we most often respond that a professional approach is preferable. GNI believes that the products and the installations require experience and expertise in order to get the optimum results. GNI has both – the experience and the expertise. When our project is complete, the attic insulation is complete. It’s a space that is properly sealed, properly ventilated and properly insulated, and it’s the only way we know. When you decide to contract Great Northern Insulation for your attic insulation, you can be sure of the same kind of project approach.
