Existing Homes

Attics

Your attic will greatly benefit from having spray foam applied. Spray foam installed in your attic can save you money on your energy consumption. Average savings can range anywhere from 20% to 40% over traditional insulation systems. This is because spray foam stops air from escaping so that your HVAC system will not work as hard. Spray foam in the attic can eliminate stack effect in your home, which is when your home acts like a smoke stack due to air exiting through the attic vents. This chimney effect causes air to be drawn in, infiltrating the lower levels and floors of a home in the winter. Having your attic insulated and air-sealed with spray foam will stabilize the air in your home, keep the temperature regulated, and will often make your floors warmer!

This will also result in a semi-climate controlled attic environment, meaning your attic temperatures will be closer to your interior temperatures year round, usually only varying by about 10 degrees. No more hot attic! You will also improve the lifespan and efficiency of your HVAC equipment if it is housed in the attic. There is no better place to do a spray foam insulation upgrade than in your attic!

Basements

If you have a basement, having it insulated with spray foam will have excellent benefits for your home. Getting your basement insulated will create a barrier against common issues associated with basements, such as drafts, mold, and dampness! It will also keep your basement temperature regulated and the air quality at its best. Our closed cell foam products can seal your basement walls with a residential code-approved moisture and air barrier as well as provide insulation value. Improve the comfort and efficiency of your basement by installing spray foam insulation!

Crawl Spaces

Insulating a crawl space with closed cell foam is a great application for spray foam! The spray foam will adhere like a glue under the subfloor, creating a complete moisture, vapor, and air barrier. Unlike fiberglass insulation, spray foam will never mold, saturate, fall down, or provide mice a place to nest. It's a terrific long-term and permanent solution to insulating under your floors!

Remodels

Exterior walls can be retrofitted using spray foam insulation! If you are undertaking a remodel project and want to increase the efficiency and comfort of the home, then spray foam insulation is a great choice. Spray foam can be sprayed into open wall cavities from the inside or outside, giving you the best-performing insulation on the market. The expanding properties of spray foam is a great way to make a drafty house as air tight and comfortable as a new home! Consider upgrading your insulation to spray foam insulation when you remodel!
