Insulation is the most effective way to improve the energy efficiency of a home or building. Insulating your home or building reduces the cost of heating and cooling by well over 40%. Insultation comes in various R-values, which is defined by Merriam-Webster as a measure of resistance to the flow of heat through a given thickness of a material such as insulation; with higher numbers indicating better insulating properties.
Services We Provide
- Spray Foam
- Flash and Batt
- Fiberglass Batts
- Blow-in-Blanket HP

Benefits of Insulation
- There is less need for heating and cooling
- Saves non-renewable resources
- Reduces greenhouse gas emissions
- Virtually eliminates condensation on walls and ceilings
Benefits of Spray Foam
- Stops air and moisture infiltration
- Saves on energy costs
- Adds strength to building structure
- Lowers utility bills
- Spray-in foams fill all cracks, gaps, holes, eliminating air infiltration
- Open cell expands leaving some air gaps
- Compared to other insulation products, spray foam offers the highest R-Value
- Homeowners can expect up to 30% to 50% ENERGY SAVINGS when using Polyurethane spray foam in comparison to conventional insulated homes. Payback for the additional cost of this insulation can be reimbursed by energy savings in 2-4 years
- Polyurethane spray foam does not age or matte down like conventional insulations
- After application the foam fully adheres to the substrate and dries in seconds. Industrial, residential, and commercial construction sites are candidates for this spray foam and lend itself to on-site application
- Foam adds strength to metal and wood stud cavities because of good adhesion and strength-to-weight ratios
- Not only is it an energy saver it can save you money on a smaller HVAC system because there will be less air infiltration, air loss and heat
The US Dept. of Energy studies show that 40% of your homes energy is lost due to air infiltration. The average monthly savings is 30% or more with spray foam versus alternative insulation systems.
Spray foam adheres to and forms to wall cavities creating a tight seal. It has the highest R-Value per inch than any other commercial material and makes your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Spray foam reduces moisture infiltration, controlling the chance of mold growth and making your home healthier for you and your family. It can also be used as sound barrier making the home more private room to room.
Installation is a process where liquid polyurethane is pumped into the cavities and on surfaces with a spray nozzle which creates a very sticky foam. The foam adheres to any surface and quickly expands to form a barrier of tiny air-filled cells. Foam does not shrink, sag, settle or degrade, and is fire and insect resistant. Form insulation also aids in moisture control and can be used in any climate.
Studies show that you will more than pay for your home to be spray foamed versus other insulation methods in less than five years by the money that is saved in energy costs.
NASA prepares for the upcoming space mission by spraying foam insulation on the external fuel tank of the space shuttle Discovery.
Benefits of Closed Cell Foam
- Higher R-value
- Greater resistance to the leakage of air and water vapor
- Expands leaving no gaps and the tightest seal you can get
Benefits of Fiberglass and Cellulose Blown Insulation
- Fiberglass insulation is formaldehyde free and its a loose fill insulation that comes in various R-values to meet state codes.
- Loose-fill cellulose is made from recycled newsprint treated with natural chemicals to make it fire resistant
- Cellulose is naturally formaldehyde free
Batt or blanket insulation
Comes in the form of batts or rolls in widths that correspond to standard spacing of wall studs, and attic and floor joists.
