Benefits of Basement Insulation
When it comes to keeping buildings safe, comfortable, and energy efficient, we know that no stone can go unturned, and no room unsealed. Our basement wall and floor insulation services are among the most reliable, cost-effective, and convenient home improvement strategies available today.

Closed cell foam is the ideal material used to insulate basements, as it adheres strongly to stone or concrete walls and serves as a lasting seal against air and water. A high-pressure nozzle ensures that the foam fills every nook and corner, for a faultless seal that will last for years to come. After a low-cost and time-efficient investment, your basement will be just as comfortable and inviting as any other room in your home or office.
Make sure to insulate basement floors as well as walls, as your foundation is just as prone to cracking, leaks, and heat loss as any of your walls. To find any hidden faults in your basement walls and floor, get in touch today for a free consultation.

Reduce Your Energy Bills
Colonial Green Product’s spray foam’s air sealing qualities combined with it’s high R-values of up to 6.9 per inch make it the most effective insulation on the market and can save you up to 50% or more on your utility bills.
Unlike fiberglass batts, which do not stop air leakage, our spray foam insulation is an air barrier which offers zero air leakage and is classified as an Air Barrier. The air barrier aspects of our spray foam alone can account for a 40% energy savings given a full envelope encapsulation with our spray foam. This savings coupled with the ability to downsize HVAC units by an average of 40% concludes a total energy saving greater than 50% in many applications.REDUCE YOUR ENERGY BILL!

Colonial Green uses closed cell foam to seal stone and concrete foundations. The closed cell foam in fully adhered to the stone or concrete which is a permanent barrier for water and air. The foam is sprayed on at 1300 psi so the all the cracks and holes are filled then foam expands to form a complete seal.
One of the biggest problems with stone basements is the dirt or mortar come out from between the rocks. This allows water to come through and cause more wash out. Over time this will cause the foundation to fail.
Our solution is to fill all the voids with the closed cell foam to take the place of the dirt or mortar. This seals all these holes to stop all water and erosion. It will also stabilize the foundation. Then we apply a coat of foam over the entire foundation which further seals and insulates the foundation.
concrete foundations sometimes have leaks, cracks or need insulation so that area can be finished. In these cases we apply closed cell spray foam to the entire wall surface which will fill and seal all the cracks and leaks as well as provide the needed insulation.

Air infiltration can account for 30% or more of a home’s heating and cooling costs and contribute to problems with moisture, noise, dust, and the entry of pollutants, insects, and rodents. Reducing infiltration can significantly cut annual heating and cooling costs, improve building durability, and create a healthier indoor environment.US Department of Energy
The most common insulation, fiberglass, does not stop air leakage. Certain types of insulation, such as spray foam insulation, can be significantly more effective at reducing air flow as well as heat flow.US Department of Energy
How Is Spray Foam Insulation Installed?
Spray Foam insulation is sprayed into place into a wall or roof cavity by a certified professional. Spray Foam insulation can be sprayed after electrical and plumbing services are in place. It can also be poured into existing walls without removal. Spray foam then expands to up to 100 times its initial volume in seconds, permanently adhering to the surfaces of the surrounding building materials and sealing all gaps, cracks, crevices, and seams creating a completely efficient home or building.
