Attic Insulation in Woodbridge
When you’ve decided that the time is right to insulate your attic, there are some important things to consider. For instance, it’s very important to choose the right product to insulate the attic. And it’s equally important to choose the right contracting company for the job itself. Finally, it’s important to understand the job at hand, and the challenges that are posed. As far as choosing the contractor, it’s important to shop around and decide on a company with an established reputation for quality and service – it will make a meaningful difference in project outcomes.

The GNI approach to attic insulation always begins with sealing up the space. Throughout the attic, we seal up every hole and gap so that the space is airtight. We do this prior to installing insulation. It’s the best way to ensure a finished insulated space that will deliver long-term energy savings, and enhanced comfort throughout the home. It’s also our way of doing it right the first time. We create a complete “system” – a system that is well sealed, well ventilated, and well insulated – and probably the best reason to hire Great Northern Insulation to insulate your attic.
When it comes time to choose an attic insulation product that’s right for the job, there are many options. But most professionals in the industry are choosing spray foam insulation as their product of choice. From one end of the country to the other, the spray foam product is recognized as the best product on the market – it delivers the most benefits, it has the best R-Value available, and the long-term results are unrivalled. Generically known in the business as polyurethane foam, this product has quickly become a favorite at Great Northern Insulation.
Spray foam insulation is applied throughout the attic using special equipment, which allows the thick liquid to spread out evenly, and harden into a dense layer of insulation. Properly installed, the attic space is coated completely – all of the wooden crossbeams; all of the plumbing and ductwork; and all exposed electric wiring. The result is a dense layer of insulation with very high R-Value per square foot. But there’s more – the envelope of foam also serves as a barrier that is impenetrable to both air and moisture – it’s the most effective way to insulate the attic.
Another product worth considering for the attic is blown-in insulation. It’s an affordable option that will suit most every budget. Available in two variations, fiberglass or cellulose, the blown-in product is “fluffy” in nature, and is designed to restrict the airflow in the attic. It makes for an efficient insulator. Blown-in insulation is treated to resist fire, mold, and rodents – it’s therefore an ideal product for the attic. When expertly applied, and uniformly dispersed, this product can be applied on top of existing insulation, creating a “thermal blanket” with excellent R-value.
For optimum results overall, Great Northern Insulation favors a “hybrid” approach for insulating the attic. This is an installation that combines the spray foam product and the blown-in product in one application. Depending on the scope of the project, GNI installers would decide on either spray foam PLUS fiberglass blown-in, OR spray foam PLUS cellulose blown-in. The spray foam application serves as a sealer and insulator, while the blown-in insulation provides the great dollar value. GNI routinely recommends this “hybrid” approach for optimum long-term results.
At GNI, we believe that an attic insulation project requires a professional approach. And while home improvement centers regularly promote a DIY approach, we regularly discourage it. We just believe that the products and installation are best left to the experts who have the skill, experience and proficiency to deliver the best results.
