Frequently Asked Questions

After a 24 hour cure period spray foam insulation is non-toxic and completely safe.

Spray foam insulation has a higher initial cost than other types of insulation, but it pays you back through increased savings on energy bills. Think of it as a long term investment. Spray foam insulation can save 50% per month on energy costs over traditional insulation methods.
Cost varies depending on the specifications of each project, such as type of foam, how many inches, size of project, and so forth. Call us and we will be happy to give you an estimate on your project.
Absolutely, we can spray foam insulate your current house. You will have to arrange to be out of the house for 24 hours after the job is completed though.
Yes, you are conditioning additional space, but your HVAC unit will not be working as hard due to the space the air handler is in being so much cooler, thus saving energy. Typically, you can lower your HVAC size by 1-ton in a spray foam insulated attic.
Spray foam insulation reduces energy consumption, doesn’t settle so is longer lasting, doesn’t contain harmful chemicals such as HFC’s in fiberglass insulation, or PBDE’s such as cellulose. It is the most environmentally friendly and carbon footprint reducing option available for home and building insulation.

Spray foam insulation is either open-cell or closed-cell. While both are exceptional, they have different costs, applications, and capabilities.

All spray foam insulation is made up of many tiny cells or bubbles. With open-cell foam the cells are open, which gives it a soft feel and a lower density. Open-cell spray foam has a lower insulating value than closed-cell (about R-3.5 per inch). Open-cell foam is ideal for most residential applications in walls, floorspace, and attics. It has exceptional noise reduction and is less expensive than closed-cell.

Closed-cell spray foam has closed cells or bubbles that are more tightly packed together and the cells are filled with a gas instead of air as with open-cell foam. Closed-cell foam is stronger (rigid), resists air and water penetration, and is the superior insulator (R-7). Closed cell foam strengthens a structure due to its rigidity.
