Flat Attic and spray foam on walls of workshop/garage

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

I couldn’t be happier with the work they did. Both the crew that did the blown in insulation, and the crew that did the spray foam were excellent. They were very efficient, masked the whole place, cleaned up everything, and the work they did was very well done. The young man that did the spray foam is an artist. I can’t thank you, and Great Northern, and your great crews enough for a job well done.

Everything went well and as expected except for the scheduling. I left multiple messages with both schedulers and did not get a return call until I would catch Leanne in her office. The crew was running late and I had to call in to see if they were still coming.

Attic insulation top-up

Though I'm not an expert, the estimator, Davis Gailitis gave me what I thought was a fair quote. However, what I am an expert on is customer service. Davis went beyond the line of duty in caring about an overheating issue in my attic. He took my call on weekends and followed up along the way to see if the issue had been resolved prior to my even committing to the insulation service.

As far as the actual topping-up from R-30 to R-60, the gents who did the work covered my furniture in plastic, took off their shoes, and treated my house and me with respect and consideration. Jacob Gallacher and his two associates were fine young pros who knew their business and were actually passionate and proud of their work.

Impressive.

We are completely satisfied with all staff that were involved with the blown cellulose insulation top-up for our house and garage attics. As seniors, we especially appreciated your sales representative not being aggressive when assessing and quoting on our insulation needs. After arriving in the morning , the installation team completed the job in approximately
four hours. They were courteous, efficient and cleaned up before leaving. The lead installer was very professional, highly organized and answered all our questions. We would use GNI for any future insulation needs, and would recommend your company to neighbors and friends.

My experience with GNI was awesome! Every person (from salesperson to installer to staff) were professional and courteous.
The installers were prompt, friendly, cleaned up after themselves and did a great insulation job. They made it look easy - I was very impressed J

Last but not least, our house is so warm now! We have only had two frosty mornings this year and we have already noticed a difference.

We know that in the years ahead we will save money on heating and cooling costs with better insulation but the coziness we feel in our home now has made us wish we had spent the money on this years ago!

We will definitely recommend your company to all our friends!

Thank you!

the sales person was professional, office staff was helpful ( when I needed to set a date up before I could accept the quote, as I was only off for a week ) the guys were prompt and efficient, my attic is full of pink fluffy stuff to the 18 inches as required, and clean up well you wouldn't even know
they were there.

The only thing I might ask is that I thought they would put a plywood
wall up in the attic entry to keep stuff in its place but instead it was card board. I was a little disappointed but wouldn't have called for that.

I was extremely happy with the service of all the staff that I dealt with, both in the scheduling office and the installers. The installers in particular were very helpful in explaining things, and did an excellent job.

We were very satisfied with the guys work. They laid plastic across living room floor and up the stairs . They covered the furniture around the attic door. They were very polite boys. The boys cleaned everything up when they were done. I didn’t have to vacuum upstairs or downstairs when they left. I was very proud of the work. You can pat the lads on the back. Thanks for everything.
