Flexable large team to adjust to construction schedule Changes

complete reno of an old home with a new addition. Many delays and covid yet the company was flexible and adjusted to the changes.

Services completed

Batt insulation
- was an issue with application of rockwool in walls - PEX waterlines where pushed to the outside wall vs. split and installed correctly. I personally fixed it and only noticed it because I had to change the hose bibs out

Sprayfoam
- perfect job. one part of the feedback is that I wanted my baffels foamed into place which they did. However, when discussing that we would have blown in in the attic I wanted sprayfoam to go above that so paid for 24" because the rep said 22" of celeloose will be in place for R60. well it turns out its only 16" which means I paid for way more sprayfoam then needed. in the end doesn't matter but it is feedback. walls where done perfectly.

Blown in attic
- team was great did perfect work and ensured that coffered trusses where filled. They cleaned up a mess that was my fault as I forgot to tape some plastic and it pored out on our stairs. They offered to clean it up and did so. Guys where great.

All in all I recommend this company they are huge and have a lot of crews so adjustments in schedules where accommodated. Heading into winter we have a well insulated home. If I was todo it again I would only spray foam the rim joists and crevasses vs. walls. rockwool product is amazing and I would just go with that and cellulose in the attic. Would be cheaper too.

Very Professional

We just replaced our roof and knew there was a leak so we thought it would be a good idea to have it checked. We were given the price with removal which is what I wanted.
Phil and Brandon came and sucked it all away! Good job boys!
Phil and Nathan came after the weekend and filled the attic with the correct amount of insulation. Gotta get used to being warm!

Attic and basement insulation

Thank you GNI for providing excellent service from start to finish! All staff were very professional and courteous. All communication, from the first phone call to the emails with my many questions, was prompt and considerate. The insulation team arrived on time, worked efficiently, and explained everything they were doing. My expectations were exceeded and I would certainly recommend your company.

Attic insulation by GNI

Contacted GNI after I saw the reviews on Home-stars.
Communication started not as smooth as I wish.
Late is the key word, late response, late arrival of sales person, late receiving the quote and insulation guys were late as well.
Now comes the flip, Jordan managed to reschedule the work to Sunday brought Will with him and both of them worked and finished the job.

To management I would recommend to review your operation process for that alone I would give 4/10.
For the personal you get 10/10 especially for guys like Jordan and Will.
These kind of guys are the ones you want to make sure you keep in your company.
