Polyurethane Spray Foam
The Spray Foam we use is a Class A Fire Rated two-component, quick-cure polyurethane foam that fills cavities, penetrations, and cracks in rim joists, roof wall junctures, and around pipes and ducts up to 2” thick. Insulation is a chemically cured foam designed to significantly reduce curing time. It dispenses, expands, and becomes tack-free in seconds, which allows for re-entry in 1 hour after the job is done. Which is our customers' favorite part!
GREENGUARD Gold Certified
This is a two-component system designed to fill and insulate large voids and surfaces. It has excellent adhesion properties that create a continuous air barrier. This also helps in the quality of the indoor air along with lowering your heating and cooling costs. Our product is a Class 1(A) fire-rated foam, this meets building requirements for insulation. When properly applied it reduces energy consumption, leaving your home or buildings to be certified in their respective energy designation.
Describes the thermal resistance to heat flow by an insulation product. The high R-value foam insulation makes spray polyurethane foam (SPF) more effective at reducing air leakages than any other insulation. Closed-cell polyurethane foam insulates 50% better than traditional fiberglass and cellulose insulations. (SPF) can reduce 40% of the home's energy lost through air infiltration and exfiltration. The higher the R-Value of an insulation product the more effective the insulation. After it’s sprayed, spray foam expands 30-100 times more than its original volume.
Polyurethane spray foam also is a vapor barrier that protects buildings against moisture. This prevents the occurrence of mold and mildew. It can therefore be used for outdoor applications as well as indoor applications. Its strong and solid structure adds structural support. Spray foam is also used to reduce noise in addition to heat and moisture control. It reduces the transfer of airborne sound thus acting as a sound barrier through doors, walls, or floors. It also improves the air quality by sealing out allergens.
Spray foam is durable, long-lasting, and cost-effective. Spray foam insulation may be a bit more expensive than the traditional cellulose and fiberglass insulation, but when compared to the energy savings the investment in spray foam makes economic sense.
