Augusta Maine Insulation Contractor

About Us

Augusta Maine Insulation Contractor, Quantum Performance Building Products offers a wide choice of insulation materials.  We offer Open Cell Icynene Spray Foam Insulation, Icynene Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation, Roxul Batt Insulation, Fiberglass Batt Insulation, and Fiberglass Bib Insulation Systems.  Quantum is Maine’s top insulation contractor doing hundreds of projects a year.  We are family owned and operated going into our 11th year as an insulation contractor.  Quantum is the Augusta Maine Insulation Contractor.

The Job

The below job is a mid size metal building that we sprayed Augusta Maine with Icynene Closed Cell Spray Foam.  We used the spray foam insulation for the thermal envelope and used Roxul for sound in the interior walls.

We generally use spray foam insulation in the exterior walls and roof.  This is because it is by far the best insulation material on the market today.  This is due to the fact that the material is an air barrier.  Roxul is not.  There is no way to make a product like Roxul or fiberglass perform as good as a spray foam in the exterior envelope.  How do we know this?  We know this from experience.  By far Spray Foam Insulation offers our clients the best experience and we get the most positive feedback from that product.  Fiberglass and Roxul insulation have their place to but that is pretty much on the interior walls only.

Result

The client was extremely happy.  The job was done on time.  The building performed as it should.  The job site was clean when we left!

Another sprayfoam insulation job well done in Falmouth, Maine.  We used Icynene Classic which is by far the best open cell foam out there on the market.

Here is a picture of a large scale growing facility we sprayed in Southern Maine.  We used Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation.  This was a perfect situation for a growing facility.  The owner was concerned about moisture build up on the metal during the cold months and keeping the building cool during the summer months.  This person has created a perfect building envelope that he can control very easily.  Around 95% of the heat transfer is being stopped with this package.  We also sprayed the steel framing as well to cut down on condensation.

Installing Icynene Classic to a cathedral roof in the Southern Maine area

 

At this job we installed R-20 in the roof and R-13 in the walls.  We actually can still meet the building code requirements with these R-values.  Talk to Peter Jr for information regarding that.  At those R-values we are stopping almost 90 percent of the heat coming the wall/roof.  Adding more R-value really would not enhance the performance at this point.  This works because foam is an “air barrier”.  We are stopping the movement of air which is the largest transport of both heat and moisture!  This is a great product that has been on the market for 35 Years!  We love it and have had great luck with it.

Installing Below Grade Ruberized Waterproofing Membrane
This picture Shows the angle used to match the grade line.

 

 

This project was done doing the later fall before winter set in and we had cold temps to deal with.  These types of products really like to be installed above 30 degrees.  This is an asphalt based rubber waterproofing membrane.  This type of waterproofing is very good in our climate because it stretches.  As the foundation goes through its freeze and thaw cycle cracks appear over time.  This type of membrane will help to bridge those gaps over time giving the waterproofing membrane a longer life and keeps your basement dry.

Quantum Performance Building Products is a full service insulation and waterproofing company.  We offer a full range of waterproofing products.  Some of our products are listed below.

1.) Fully Rubberized Waterproofing Membranes

2.) Above Grade water and air barriers.  Both sheet and fluid applied.

3.) Protection panels to cover our water proofing products.  This product is very important to the waterproofing system.  It is a fiber board that creates a barrier between the dirt and waterproofing membrane.  Over time, rocks and dirt run up against the membrane and can shorten its life if its not protected with a boar.

Adding a Protection/Drain Panel really helps with the overall lifetime of the membrane.

Installing Insulation Portland Maine

Job Description:

At this job we sprayed Icynene Classic Spray Foam Insulation to the underside of the roofdeck.  This allowed the customer to bring all of there hot air heat runs inside the building envelope.  If this space was empty and the customer did not need it heated we would spray down to the floor.  Bringing the heat runs into the envelope helps with the over all efficiency of the heating system.

This is an excellent Insulation System.  At the thicknesses used here we are stopping around 95% of the heat flow through the cavity.  The only way to make this roof any more efficient would be to add rigid board to either the inside or outside.  That would help to cut the heat transfer through the wood studs.  However, wood is a very poor conductor of heat.  I would consider adding blue board as a premium package and is not needed to build a very efficient house.

Portland, Maine Insulation Spray Foam

This is a picture of a spray foam insulation job we recently did in the Portland Maine Area.  We sprayed closed cell foam in the wall cavities and on the ceiling.  This room is being used for indoor agriculture which produces a fairly humid environment.  Therefore, applying a vapor barrier product like out closed cell spray foam its a great choice.  It helps to contain the moisture in a way that it can be transported out of the heated space via the duct work in the wall system.
