spray foam insulation contractors serving the tri-state area
One of the most energy efficient solutions for home insulation and commercial insulation is Spray Foam Insulation. Spray Foam acts as both insulation and air barrier, which means it permanently insulates and air seals your structure for as long as the building is standing. Almost 40% of a home or business’s energy efficiency is lost due to air leaks. Because of the efficient air sealing capabilities of expanding spray foam insulation, heating and cooling energy bills noticeably drop after insulation is installed– often they are cut by up to 50%!
two options for spray foam insulation
open cell polyurethane
Open cell spray foam is an excellent insulation choice because it offers maximum air sealing capabilities. It is a great option for soundproofing houses and offices when installed in walls and floors because it effectively absorbs sound waves. Open cell spray foam is highly expansive and can effectively seal all cracks, gaps, and joints with a single application.
closed cell polyurethane
Closed cell spray foam is also an excellent thermal insulation option and greatly reduces vapor transmission. Because of its versatility, it is a perfect insulation for metal structures, pole barns, basements, crawlspaces, and attics. Closed cell spray foam is a more dense insulation that provides higher insulation value with less volume.
air, thermal, and vapor barrier coatings
These fireproofing, air barrier, and vapor barrier coatings are available to add extra protection on top of new or old insulation.
air barrier systems
Used to stop the movement of air into or out of the material, most often to control environments between air conditioned and non-air conditioned spaces.
vapor barrier systems
Used to slow vapor through a material. A crawl space vapor barrier and basement vapor barrier is often needed in homes because of their damp nature.
thermal barrier systems
A non-toxic intumescent spray that protects a material against thermal exposure. Thermal insulation coatings are available for commercial insulation.
