About Us

Garside Insulation is a family owned business located in Orrington, Maine, with over 34 years of experience installing blown insulation in new and existing homes in Maine.

Bob Garside worked for several years at a local sprayed urethane foam company before he and his wife, Cindy, decided to form the company in 1980. When the company was first founded, Bob and Cindy chose to concentrate on installing blown insulation into existing homes. In recent years, they have attended the Blown in Blanket Convention in Denver, Colorado, and become licensed and certified in Blown In Blanket Contractor. This has allowed them to expand their business into insulating new homes as well.

At Garside Insulation, the crew is outstanding. Over the years, we have received numerous compliments on our crew’s polite, professional service, attention to detail and knowledge of the products being used. To read some rave reviews of their work, take a look through our Testimonials!

Garside Insulation was one of the first contractors in the area to use the OPTIMA Dry Blown in Batt System. This revolutionary product line from CertainTeed has become an instant hit with both contractors and homeowners across the country. Garside Insulation recommends this product as well as InsulSafe SP fiberglass blown insulation.
