What is injection Foam Insulation?

  Injection foam insulation is also known as “foamed-in-place” insulation or “drill and fill” insulation. 

This type of insulation is excellent for upgrading the energy efficiency of existing homes.
Injection foam insulation has been used in construction for over 35 years.
It has been used in more than 400 million square feet of buildings in the United States.
Injection foam insulation is installed through small holes drilled in the exterior of the building, with no need to tear down any interior walls!

We can insulate homes that have vinyl siding, wood siding, brick, stucco, stone, aluminum siding, and masonry block.
The process is a hassle-free and effective method of retrofitting the insulation of almost any type of existing or new home!

Most people are unaware that up to 90% of US homes are under-insulated.
Because of this, many homeowners are wasting money every month by losing valuable heated or cooled air through their walls.
Improved insulation benefits you year-round by promoting a more stable temperature, reducing drafts and air infiltration, decreasing sound transmission, sealing out allergens & pests, and more!

Foam Insulation Services for almost any application

Older and Historic Homes
Kentucky has so many beautiful older and historic homes that lack modern insulation. We can get you up to speed with our injection foam insulation services. The best part? You do not need to sacrifice the beauty and charm of your home to do it!
New Builds
Injection foam insulation is ideal for new builds. Our state-of-the-art insulation work is done from the outside, while work continues inside. This saves time and money during construction, while leaving the future homeowner with the best thermal envelope available.
Spending more time in your basement or looking to finish it? Concrete block foundations and basements are porous and let in the cold air. Our insulation contractors can use foam insulation to fill concrete blocks. Additionally, foam insulation can be applied from inside a basement that already has drywall to create a thermal barrier between the wall and concrete or masonry.
Whether your garage is standalone or attached to your home, they are often lacking basic insulation. We can evaluate your garage to see if it is a good candidate for injection foam insulation. With our foam insulation services, you can store your important items or work on projects in the comfort of a more temperature controlled environment.
Commercial Block Construction
One of the primary applications for injection foam insulation is commercial masonry block. Injection foam insulation contractors can fill the cavities of masonry block with foam, sealing in air gaps and providing a complete thermal envelope for the block structure. We provide commercial injection foam insulation services in Kentucky and surrounding areas.

How does injection foam differ from spray foam insulation or blown-in insulation?

Check out the differences below! 

Injection Foam Insulation

  • R-value of 4.6-4.7 per inch
    – R-16 for a 2×4 wall
    – R-25.3 for a 2×6 wall
  • Can be installed in existing or new homes – no wall removal, small holes drilled of 1″ or less
  • Seals cracks and crevices as wall is completely filled using compressed air to completely fill the wall cavity
  • May prevent allergens, pests, mold, etc. from entering wall cavity
  • No toxic-off gassing, home can be occupied during installation and no PPE required for installers
  •  Excellent sound barrier 
  • Class I, 4 hour fire-rating
  • Once cured, it does not shift or compress in wall cavity
  • Installed by professional insulation contractors. Equipment, knowledge, and certification are required

Spray Foam Insulation

  • R-value of 3.5-3.6 per inch (open cell)
    – R-13 for a 2×4 wall
    – R-19 in a 2×6 wall 
  • Must be installed in new construction or have drywall/plaster removed
  • Fills cracks and crevices, creating a sealed home envelope
  • May prevent allergens, pests, mold, etc. from entering wall cavity
  • Requires special PPE/hazmat suits to apply, no occupancy until the product cures due to off-gassing. Often contains polyurethane and flame retardants that can be hazardous to human health
  •  Excellent sound barrier
  • Class I, 4 hour fire-rating
  • Once cured, it does not shift or compress in wall cavity
  • Can DIY, best installed by professional with special equipment and certification

Fiberglass Insulation

  • R-value 2.2-4.3 per inch
    – R-13-15 for 2×4 wall
    – R-16-19 for 2×6 wall
  • Must be installed in new construction or have drywall/plaster removed
  • Does not create an air barrier, leaves cracks and crevices for air infiltration and drafts
  • If improperly installed or old, may shift or sag in wall cavity 
  • Can become moldy if moisture enters the wall cavity, but does not feed mold
  • Fiberglass is naturally fire resistant 
  • Rodents and other pests can nest/tunnel inside of fiberglass batts
  • Can DIY or be installed by professional
  • Relies heavily on proper installation of air barrier

Cellulose or Blown-In Insulation

  • R-value of 3.2-3.8 per inch
    – R13 for a 2×4 wall
    – R-19 in a 2×6 wall
  • Can be installed in existing or new homes – in existing homes, typically the holes are drilled from the inside, 1-2″ in  diameter
  • Can compress into wall cavity over time or become “caught” by pipes, etc. leading to incomplete filling
  • Requires PPE to install, exposure to dust can be harmful
  • Pests, rodents, etc. can nest in cellulose materials
  • Absorbs moisture, which can lead to mold growth
  • Chemical flame retardants applied increase fire resistance, but can affect integrity of wiring and pipes inside wall
  • Eco-friendly – made out of recycled materials, like newspaper
  • Can DIY or be installed by professional
