Types of Spray Foam
We offer two main types of spray foam: open-cell spray foam insulation and closed-cell spray foam insulation
Open-cell residential and commercial spray foam is made of tiny cells that have small openings, creating an excellent air barrier.
Open cell spray foam interior applications
- Permits bi-directional drying
- Will accommodate long-term creep and seasonal movement
- Hydrophobic material
- Air barrier and insulating material
- Can be installed at a significantly lower cost and target the same specified R-value*
- Can achieve greater R-value
- Lower raw material/resource use
Closed-cell residential and commercial spray foam has a higher density of cells that are much more compact.
Closed cell spray foam exterior applications
- Can be applied at very low temperatures
- Adds wall racking strength as well as impact resistance
- Ideal for continuous insulation solutions
- Higher R-value* per inch – easier to accommodate high R-value* requirements in narrow spaces
- Lower vapor permeance
- Can reject bulk water
- Higher tensile and bond strength
Benefits of Spray Foam
- Our spray foam will seal all cracks and joints inside your walls, preventing air from flowing into your home and creating an annoying draft.
- Improve energy efficiency – This spray foam helps you save big on your energy bill. You can reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 50 percent.
- Lower heating and cooling efforts – With our spray foam insulation, you’ll reduce the wear and tear on your HVAC system because it won’t have to work as hard.

Types of Blown-In Insulation
- Fiberglass loose-fill insulation is made of glass and sand that are spun or “blown” into fibers. We use this type of insulation because it is great for wall cavities and attics. It can properly insulate an area and protect it too from moisture which could lead to the formation of fungus and mildew. And that’s what our clients want. In this age of recycling, most manufacturers use 20% to 30% recycled glass. Most quality loose-fill fiberglass will not only prevent moisture from seeping in the house but the material itself will not rot as it won’t absorb moisture. Fiberglass has a high R-value, non flammable, non-corrosive, pest-resistant and non-combustible.
- Cellulose loose-fill insulation is a very popular choice as a material. It is eco-friendly and safe for human contact. Another thing that our clients aim for. Cellulose is generally made from 85% recycled newsprint, shredded and treated with fire retardant. Ammonium sulfate and borate are the chemicals used as fire retardants and these chemicals also prevent pests’ infestation and mold. When choosing a brand of cellulose, we don’t recommend those that contain mineral fibers and formaldehyde. Dry cellulose is a wise choice for insulating existing cavity walls for it will definitely fill up all the gaps and cracks without causing discomfort to the persons doing the insulation. The R-value of cellulose is high.
- Rock wool loose-fill insulation is made from minerals and rocks. It is actually similar to fiberglass but instead of being spun from glass and sand, it is spun from slag and other rock-like materials. Rock wool is also known as slag insulation, mineral wool insulation or stone wool insulation. This insulator can definitely block heat, condensation and sound and does not rot or absorb moisture.
Adding insulation in an attic can be done from our experts by hauling unfaced rolls of fiberglass insulation into an attic and unrolling them to form an uninterrupted blanket across the attic floor. Blown-in insulation offers a much faster way to significantly improve your attic insulation. In a matter of an hour or two, our specialist can blow a thick blanket of loose insulation across the floor of the attic using a single hose run up through the attic hatch. For wall cavities, blown-in insulation is the only practical way to improve the R-value of stud cavities, short of removing entire wall surfaces to install faced fiberglass batts.
Blown-in cellulose insulation is a favorite among our clients who prefer green products, since the material is made entirely from recycled paper and wood products, with few synthetic processes or chemicals involved.
