Attic insulation in Kingsville

Choosing the most suitable residential attic insulation

Choosing attic insulation and choosing an attic insulation contractor can be a challenge.  There are so many contractors vying for our attention, selling their services, and pushing their products – and everyone is the best. As for product manufacturers, their products are also the best. It can be a challenge deciding on the most suitable product and the most cost effective installation. For customers thinking about installing attic insulation in Kingsville, choosing a respected and reputable contractor would be a good first step. Indeed, a good contractor will probably make the difference between a successful attic insulation project and not.

A reputable insulation contractor will undertake an attic insulation project from start to finish. Working closely with the homeowner, the contractor will advise on the best product option and installation approach for the home. Great Northern Insulation believes that a well-informed customer makes far better decisions, based on specific needs. For homeowners thinking about installing attic insulation in Kingsville, GNI can offer a solid commitment to quality. It includes supplying and installing top-quality products, ensuring top-quality installations, and making sure to provide complete customer satisfaction on every job undertaken.

Expertise in attic insulation will make a big difference

GNI expedites attic insulation with an initial inspection of the space to assess the condition and evaluate the specific challenges. Product options and installation methods are reviewed, and advice is offered in choosing the best possible options. GNI also evaluates the project budget, to make sure that product options and installation methods best satisfy the homeowner’s needs. When attic insulation is considered to be a DIY project (do-it-yourself), GNI will discourage it. For best results, this is work that necessitates expertise and experience. It’s work that requires product knowledge and a high level of proficiency with installation. 

Like most home improvement projects, attic insulation requires a professional approach. It will assure the best outcomes and maximized performance for products installed. When insulating the attic, GNI creates a “system”. It’s a “system” that ensures the right volume and density for the installed product. It’s a “system” that ensures air sealing for holes, gaps, and crevices. And finally, it’s a “system” that incorporates an air barrier and vapor barrier to prevent the undesirable movement of air and unwanted collection of moisture. For GNI, a good “system” is one that is totally sealed; well ventilated; and insulated to the maximum.

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) – ideal for attic spaces

More and more, professionals are recommending Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) as an insulating product for attics. For residential customers considering attic insulation in Kingsville, SPF is the top product on the market today. At GNI, installers use specialized application equipment to spray SPF throughout the attic. It spreads out as a liquid, quickly expands, and then hardens into a dense “blanket” of insulation. Installers make sure that coverage is complete and uniform. And with an expert install, the SPF “blanket” will envelop a space completely - beams and joists; ductwork and framing; electric and plumbing. Nothing can compare.

SPF creates an insulation “blanket” that is thick, dense, and tightly packed. It restricts air movement, stops air leakage, and prevents moisture collection. The SPF “blanket” essentially does it all in a single application - an effective air barrier; an impermeable vapor barrier; and insulation with the highest R-Value available.

Blown-In Insulation – another viable option for attics

Another product option for the attic is “Blown-In” insulation. Both product and installation are cost effective, and are available in compositions of either cellulose or fiberglass. The insulation is quite “fluffy” after being installed, and is designed to restrict air movement in an attic. “Blown-In” insulation (also known as “loose fill” insulation) is mold resistant, rodent resistant, and fire-resistant.  Here again, installers use specialized equipment and application tools to make sure that the product is installed uniformly throughout the attic. Cellulose or fiberglass, “Blown-In” insulation can be used for “topping up” insulation previously installed.

“Blown-In” insulation products create a “thermal blanket” that measurably enhances R-Value in the attic. With a good installation, the entire attic is blanketed, including beams and joists; electrical and plumbing; and ductwork and framing. It’s a cost effective install, quite suitable for most residential project budgets. 

The “hybrid” installation – an ideal option for the attic

The “hybrid” insulation approach could be an ideal option for many homeowners. It’s a unique installation from GNI combining the SPF product with one of the “Blown-In” products. With this approach, attics benefit from both products in one application.  In fact, SPF can be combined effectively with either fiberglass or cellulose. Whatever the product combination, the “hybrid” installation is a viable alternative. The Spray Polyurethane Foam serves to effectively seal the attic space, while the “Blown-In” insulation allows for a cost effective component for the project. Overall, the project investment is suitable for most project budgets.

Where attics require complete removal of insulation, followed by replacement, GNI often recommends the “hybrid” installation. The process is simple: removing existing insulation entirely; selecting the most suitable product combination; and finally, an expert installation. Without any doubt, the final results are excellent.
