SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

Spray Foam Insulation Redefines Construction Methods,
Benefits Modern Building Sciences, and Promotes Energy Efficient Green Building Initiatives.
Spray foam Insulation used in the Building Envelope outperforms fiberglass insulation, becomes a superior air barrier, and defies traditional, and outdated building practices of attic and crawl space ventilation

SPRAY FOAM Saves Money and Pays for Itself
Spray Foam home insulation saves on energy costs and lowers utility bills. Spray Foam seals the entire “building envelope” of your home to prevent air and moisture infiltration. The US Department of Energy (DOE) studies show that 40% of your home's energy is lost due to air infiltration. This air infiltrates the home in the form of drafts through walls sockets, windows and doorways. Often times no expensive building wrap or additional vapor protection is required during construction when using Closed-Cell Spray Foam , saving money yet again.

High R-Value
Spray polyurethane foam has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 per 1 inch thickness (depending on the particular formulation and application, higher values have been achieved), enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulation material. Spray Foam Systems are frequently used to insulate and protect a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
Monthly energy and utility savings of 30% or greater can be achieved when compared to the alternative insulation systems. The cost of a Spray Polyurethane Foam insulation system can often be recovered in less than 5 years, simply through energy savings alone.

Prevents Air, Moisture and Gas Infiltration
Traditional fiberglass insulation is only stapled, or placed into the wall cavities and does not seal the stud and wall cavities from end to end, or top to bottom. Air infiltration can pass through these gaps, making it far less efficient than Spray Foam. The Foam not only adheres to, but forms to the walls and floors to create a tight seal and insulating barrier that stops this air leakage. Closed-Cell Spray Foam also boasts the highest R-value per inch than any other commercial material, (upwards of R-7.0, compared with Fiberglass at R-3.5) making your home more comfortable and less expensive to heat in the winter, and cool in the summer.
Since Spray Foam acts as an air barrier, it also helps to reduce moisture infiltration, which is a source of dangerous mold and mildew growth in the home, and can cause severe health problems to its occupants. Moisture infiltration can also cause structural damage to your home or building. Protect your family and save money at the same time with Spray Foam insulation systems.

Helps Reduce Moisture and Mold
Molds produce tiny spores. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture. Closed-Cell Spray Foam insulation is the key. 

 

Enhances Overall Building Stability
Since Spray Foam is seamless and monolithic; foam sprayed into the walls enhance overall building stability and reduces “rack and sheer.”

Deadens Sound Travel and Noise
Spray Foam also reduces airborne sound making the home acoustically tighter and more private from room to room.
