Whether it is whole home insulation, retro fitting an existing attic or spraying foam in a basement, all solutions have a dramatic effect on your monthly energy consumption.
Spray Foam is available with a variety of physical properties and densities, it’s necessary to understand these differences in order to choose the best foam system for the application.
Spray Foam is the single largest advancement in insulation technology. Foam provides a quieter, more comfortable, healthy environment while reducing energy costs.
There are two primary types of spray foam, known as open cell and closed cell. They differ in densities and other aspects that can be beneficial or detrimental in a given application.
All spray foam insulation designed to retain a blowing agent, other than air, needs to be tested for long-term thermal resistance (LTTR) in accordance with CAN/ULC-S770.
With construction expenses increasing and greater awareness of the long term affects of energy use, building owners are looking for cost effective alternatives to conventional roofs.
