Reinsolate atic after renovation

Did a renovation of our kitchen and living room removed the claiming and all the insulation. Got 3 quotes and GNI was not the cheapest or most expencince. From the start they where very professional and curtious. The workers showmed my everything they were doing and explained it to me. Very clean and professional.
I would you use them again and recommend them to all of my friends.

Great Service & Product.

GNI was on time and on budget. Two service technicians arrived and surveyed the work needed and determined the best way to blow insulation into our attic. Got the attic insulated in no time, with no mess. Recommend this company.

Basement Spray Foam

Dave and Kyle recently completed the spray foam of my full basement in the St. Catharines' area. The installation started as scheduled and took about 4 hours. Kyle was very receptive to my list of potential issues and ensured before departing that they were addressed to my satisfaction. The team minimized any over-spray and the basement was left clean. The work was performed efficiently. I also acknowledge the pre-installation visit by Eric (production supervisor). Eric was instrumental in arranging the spraying of rim joists prior to the full basement install. Without Eric's early intervention, the final result would have been less than optimal since accessing the rim joists once the stud walls were fastened in place would have been very difficult. I am very thankful for this.

Living room insulation

Great experience and extremely happy with the service. From the initial conversation to the installation, everyone we dealt with was professional and friendly. The guys explained everything they were going to do, including how to deal with a couple of tight spot. The room feels warmer already. Thanks

attic insulation

Highly recommend this company! They were very quick and did a great job. They were very friendly and cleaned up after themselves. They were also very quiet, my 4 month old slept through it all! Definitely recommend them, did a wonderful job!

Attic Insulation - They did a great job!

We had our attic insulated from R30 to R60. Phil and Billy did an awesome job! They were punctual, friendly and efficient. They explained the process. They also made sure that everything was cleaned up after. I would definitely recommend their service.

Removal of old insulation, put in new insulation and vents

I was selling my Mom's house and got a rude surprise during the home inspection that the attic was full of mould. The whole roof and insulation had been supposedly redone just three years ago. It turns out that the prior roofing company did not remove the old insulation, did not install any vents/baffles, did not install vapour barrier, and blew in the new insulation unevenly. I had less than three weeks to resolve the problem. From my first contact with Great Northern Insulation they were amazing. Mike was very helpful and advised they would do whatever they could to meet my tight timelines. They even spoke with the company that I had obtained to do the mould remediation to co-ordinate all the work. The three guys (Scott, Tim, Kenny) that came to remove the old insulation were fantastic. They were on time, professional, friendly, and did a great job. Not only did they remove all of the insulation that was blown in three years before they took out 17 large industrial size garbage bags packed full of the old insulation that the prior roofing company was supposed to have removed. They were a fantastic crew!
I then had the mould remediation company come in to do their work. Great Northern adjusted their scheduling to get a crew back to my Mom's house the day after the mould remediation was done to blow back in the new insulation and vent the attic properly. These two guys (John and Conner) were fantastic as well - friendly, professional, thorough and neat.
Because Great Northern was so helpful and accommodating I was able to get all the work done at my Mom's house done within a very short time so that I did not lose the sale of her house.
Thanks to everyone I dealt with at Great Northern Insulation. An awesome company!!

New built .

I was very happy with the salesman (Mike) and also the two installers that came to do the job.
It had rained the last couple of days so the truck could have gotten stuck in the driveway that was soft. (being a new built it was muddy).
I asked the installers to park on the road, but apparently their other company was doing a bigger commercial job and the other installers took half of their houses, so they could not reach. Has I was doing my best to come up with a sulotion for them to start the job (moving equipment or construction fenced ,,, thier supervisor called me freaking out that he could not have them their waiting because time was money .
For that reason Mr. supervisor you guys will no longer do work for us.
Next time make sure your workers are equipped with the proper tools, and especially don't take their hoses away .
