What is Spray Foam?
It is a spray applied insulating foam plastic which sprays as a liquid and then expands to make an air-tight seal. There are two different types of spray foam that you can utilize for your home: closed and open cell. Open cell spray foam is lightweight, pliable, and very easy to work with, while closed cell foam is rigid and very dense. When coming out to your home, our expert estimators will know which sort of spray foam would be best for your specific needs.
As much as 40% of a house or building’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. Energy bills can soar if there are holes, gaps and air leaks in the structure. Open and closed cell spray foam performs as and air carrier and insulation that closes gaps, preventing air from escaping. According to the EPA, as much as half of your energy in a home or building goes to heating and cooling. Maintenance of your heating and cooling appliances, coupled with proper insulation can reduce as much as 40%. Fixing the air leaks that waste energy and money is instant and efficient.

Benefits of Spray Foam

Heating and cooling account for up to 50% of your home’s energy use. By insulating you would be able to save up to 40% on not only your winter, but also your summer energy costs.
2. Healthier Home
By insulating locations such as walls, attics, and basements, you are creating a barrier to moisture, pests, and mold. Spray foam creates an environment in your home that is crisp, dry, and in which you can breathe freely.
3. Home Value
Between winter storms, Nor’easters, and the summer heat, homes in New England have to face a lot. That is why when new homeowners are shopping for their place to call home, they value insulation due to its energy savings and its ability structurally strengthen a home 75-200%.
4. Air-tight Seal
The air-tight seal of spray foam gives you the advantage of insulating difficult to reach and uneven spaces without compromising your warmth, or all of the barriers that spray foam provides against the environment.
We use a non-hybrid spray, which means that we do not mix inferior insulation with our spray foam. This makes our spray foam more dense for a tighter seal, and your home much warmer for it.
