Spray foam insulation and injection foam mean so much more than simply spraying foam. There is a specific foam solution for every type of job just as there are specific concrete leveling solutions. The applications are numerous and versatile. So why trust a local spray foam insulation contractor compared to the tried-and-true methods?
To understand what separates us from traditional insulation, you need to understand how our spray foam insulation and concrete leveling services work.
The process of spray foam insulation is straightforward. We have a liquid compound that we spray in your wall space, attic, crawlspace, etc. The liquid hardens, effectively insulating the covered area.
Our spray polyurethane foam, also known as SPF, makes for quick and efficient service. When we say efficient, we truly mean it. It is estimated that SPF on average lowers the energy consumption of a building by 20%.
Because SPF starts as a liquid that our experienced installers spray all along your walls, the SPF evenly covers the entire surface, area seeping into all drafty cracks. Once SPF sets, it solidifies effectively blocking out the winter winds and properly insulating your building. It is much more efficient and long-lasting than your typical fiberglass-based insulation.
But spray foam insulation has more applications than just energy savings. The correct compound can also soundproof a room. The hardened end product of the polyurethane foam is dense making it harder for soundwaves to travel through your walls.
So, does your business have a recording studio? Perhaps you play some instruments and do not want to disturb the rest of the house? Maybe you do not want to hear the kids in their rumpus room? Spray foam insulation will not only keep the draft out but the noise in.
Further, our spray insulation can help improve your building’s air quality. Our spray insulation foam is plastic-based, meaning it is both dense and has no water absorbency. This creates a barrier through which no airborne pollutants will be able to enter.
This means moisture build-up and allergens will also have a hard time penetrating the insulation layer. The Midwest can get very humid in the summer. Mold is a common risk to your building and its inhabitants. Your insulation is the first line of defense in preventing mold build-up.
Because our spray foam insulation is thick and non-absorbent, moisture cannot accumulate. Therefore, mold or mildew cannot develop in your walls, and your building has cleaner air and healthier inhabitants.
When you think of insulation, you are probably thinking of the pink fluffy stuff in the walls of older homes. That is fiberglass insulation, and it was the standard insulation method in the U.S. for decades. To this day many insulation contractors may opt to use fiberglass because of cheaper upfront costs.
While United Spray Foam Insulation offers fiberglass insulation, this is a “get what you pay for” situation. It is cheap and easy to install, but it deteriorates over time. Because this insulation is made of fiberglass, installation and deterioration could also be detrimental to your health over time. As the fiberglass deteriorates overtime, that fiberglass may release into the air causing respiratory discomfort.
Our spray foam insulation lasts much longer, and its composition makes it much more effective. Because the SPF does not deteriorate, you do not have to worry about breathing it in over the years.
Our spray foam insulation truly is safer for your building in the long wrong. However, because spray foam insulation is a chemical mixture, we strongly recommend you leave the installation, maintenance, and removal to professionals, like us. United Spray Foam Insulation is experienced contractors with the proper equipment and know-how to safely manage and remove spray foam insulation.
While spray foam insulation may cost more upfront and require professional installation from people like us, what you are getting in return is long-term value.
