Whether your home was built in the 1800’s, 1980’s, or even the 2000’s – there’s a huge possibility it has inadequate insulation. According to Builder Online, up to 90% of US homes are under-insulated.
Injectable foam insulation is perfect for existing homes that are not up to today’s energy standards. Our insulation process might seem new, but our product has actually been around for over 35 years! Think of injection foam as an alternative to spray foam insulation that can be installed in almost any type of wall.
Foam insulation is a mixture of special resins and foaming agents that provides both thermal and acoustic insulation. Once the raw materials are properly mixed, they transform into a “shaving cream” consistency that is pushed inside of any wall cavity with compressed air. Unlike other foam insulation products, our foam is non-toxic and safe to handle.
Injection foam insulation moves through walls, filling any crevices, nooks, and crannies it finds! Our insulation contractors do all of this work from the outside of your home, without disturbing any interior walls. Shortly after being injected, the foam solidifies and creates a well-sealed envelope around your home.
If a home is inadequately insulated, you will notice that the home still feels drafty and cold in the winter and doesn’t keep cool in the summer. Even with modern heating and cooling methods – you can waste a lot of money on trying to keep a home that lacks insulation comfortable for your family.
With vinyl siding, the siding is unsealed and holes are drilled underneath. Next, we use special pumps and compressed air to inject the insulation through these small holes, filling the wall cavity completely. Lastly, once the insulation is injected, we reseal the open areas with your existing siding. There will be no lasting disruption to the outside of your home.
With brick and masonry block structures, we drill small holes in the mortar joints to access your wall cavities. After the insulation work is complete, we patch the holes with mortar that is mixed to match the existing exterior.
