Spray Foam Insulation Portland Maine

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.

Falmouth Maine Sprayfoam Insulation

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...

Maine Waterproofing Contractor

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...

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...

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.
