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 .

Garage

I was very satisfied with the way my project had to get sqeezed in to the work schedule due to time of year and weather circumstances, and the office kindly arranged it. The work crew were very efficient, friendly and neat. Site clean up was superb . The job quality is of course great. Highly recommend this product and company. Both my house and garage build were insulated this way. Heating efficiency is wonderful!

Spray foam insulation of basement

The specialists who came in seemed very experienced and professional. They came on time (actually a bit early). In that respect, we were a bit surprised at how early they came as we hadn't gotten a clear statement as to their time of arrival. That was probably the only negative. However, as the autumn arrives we can tell how much warmer our basement is, even though we still have a bare concrete floor there. The difference is remarkable.

Foam Repair

We had Great Northern in to repair a job that was done by another copy which was done incorrectly. We were provided a quote for the repair and our invoice was for less as the repair turned out not to be as extensive as they thought. I can't tell you the last time my invoice was less than a quote. Very Happy!

Spray foamed the front porch

Took a bit of time to set up the appointment to do the work.... few weeks actually...
I guess they were backlogged...
But once they are on my file, they called, me, we set it up and came within a week and did a great job!

Floor to ceiling including joist headers

Did a great job. They had a mechanical issue and had to come back a second time so they paid for our extra hotel stay. Can feel the difference in the basement already and it's not even winter.

Attic insulation and Energy Assessment

We had had our HVAC systems upgraded and used Northern Insulation to do the assessment for the Enbridge rebates. We also topped up our attic insulation for a further rebate.
The Northern team was excellent from start to finish! All went smoothly

Removal and application of new attic insulation

It all started by meeting James and Jason to acquire a quote to get the 60 years old attic insulation removed and proceed with a re-insulating our attic. Great Northern Insulation had a very competitive price, not the cheapest but the company, due to their representatives, was by far the one that inspired trust and good results. From the appraiser, the removal crew, the foam spray crew and the cellulose spray crew, everything went as planned. they showed up the day and at the time they said they would. That alone was bonus for me. They respect other people's time table. I am super happy with every steps, they left a certificate in our attic detailing exactly what and how it was done. Now I now that our home is ready for winter and that the job was done professionally. Thank GNI, I have no problem referring you to all.

Crawl space encapsulation

This whole project from start to finish was a great experience from the sales rep to the two young men who arrived on the appointment date to do the encapsulation. The whole process was very professional from start to finish. It’s obvious the whole staff has a complete knowledge of the whole process. The price was totally in the ballpark of the four other quotes I received and the product and service were great. They went out of their way to make sure we were happy with the our project. Highly recommend this company.
