SPRAY FOAM & FIBERGLASS INSULATION SERVICES

Attics

Attics and rooflines are the #1 energy eaters in buildings. This is the point of entry for air and temperature we try to keep out. It's also the main of exit for the air we pay good money to condition. This is usually the best place to insulate for the best return on investment.

Crawlspaces

Crawlspaces are generally poorly insulated as well. If you have any insulation at all, chances are it is falling out and rodent or mold infested. Closed cell spray foam is an excellent upgrade for most crawlspaces as it seals and resists moisture intrusion.

New Construction

Building a new home is a serious investment. We can work with you on the front end to show how investing a little more in your insulation can save you on other construction costs, as well as keep your heating and cooling costs in check for the life of the home.

SPRAY FOAM

Spray foam is a state of the art insulation system that protects a home equally against both heat and cold. It also acts as a barrier, eliminating air leakage that can account for significant heat loss or gain in the averages home.

Spray foam offers homes a healthier, safer, and more comfortable indoor living environment. It is applied to the surface as a liquid which then expands to 100 times its volume in seconds to fill every crack and crevice. It delivers a perfect fit for cavities of any shape, providing a continuous protective barrier that blocks heat transfer and eliminates air leakage.

Foam is either open cell or closed cell. Open cell foam is where the tiny cells of foam are not completely closed. They are broken and air fills all the open space inside the material. This makes the foam feel softer. Closed cell foam differs in that all of its tiny foam cells are closed and packed together. They are filled with gas that helps the foam rise and expand and become a greater insulator and building tool.

  • Flame Retardant

  • Puts a stop to moisture and air intrusion

  • Won’t sag or settle

  • Adds exceptional sound insulation

  • Best insulation for the greatest return

  • Improved Acoustics

  • Superior Insulation Value

FIBERGLASS INSULATION

Fiberglass insulation works by “slowing” the transfer of hot air and radiant heat (i.e. from the attic to the living space). The ability of insulation to resist heat transfer is measured in R-value, which stands for” resistance to heat flow”. R-value is determined primarily by the thickness of insulation. Higher R-values mean better resistance to heat flow and greater the insulation value. Fiberglass does have a law of diminishing return and should not be over insulated.
 

ADVANTAGES:

  • Minimum Cost for Maximum Value

  • Easy Quick Install

  • Relatively inexpensive with quick payback

  • Pure glass fibers

  • Pest Resistant

  • Not absorbent and resists and permanent loss of R-value

  • Naturally noncombustible and flame resistance


RADIANT BARRIER

Radiant Barrier is an alternative to traditional insulation that is applied to the underside of the roof and/or on the attic floor. It reduces attic temperatures and increases the efficiency of the HVAC equipment located in the attic. A radiant barrier consists of a thin coating of highly reflective material or reflective paint and reduces the amount of heat that is transferred from the attic to the house. It actually reduces the amount of radiant heat that enters the attic, thereby reducing the heat that transfers through the insulation in the house.

 

ADVANTAGES:

  • Minimum cost for maximum value

  • Stops 97% of radiant transfer

  • Effective for the life of your home without settling

  • Never needs replacing or maintenance

  • Free of dangerous fibers, off gassing or allergens

  • Addresses radiation, conduction, and convection
