Be Healthy

By air sealing your home, you can help block pollutants that can affect your health.

  • Reduce dangers of respiratory distress – allergies, asthma, and certain chemical sensitivities can be caused by natural airborne irritants.
  • Minimize pollutants – dust and dirt, mold and moisture, radon, exhaust fumes, and carbon monoxide are reduced by air sealing, to keep your home and air clean.

Be Comfortable

Air sealing your home using Icynene spray foam insulation creates a cocoon effect, increasing the comfort of your home.

  • Reduce drafts – a home without spray foam insulation loses enough air each day to fill two blimps.
  • Avoid hot and cold spots – seal between heated/cooled living spaces and unconditioned spaces such as garages and basements, to maintain even temperatures throughout your home.
  • Reduce noise – Icynene open-cell spray foam can help reduce sound from noisy indoor rooms such as media rooms and laundry rooms, outdoor noises such as traffic and playgrounds, and transferred noise such as flushing toilets.

Protect Your Home

You want your home to last a long time – Icynene spray foam insulation can help.

  • Protect against moisture – 99% of the moisture that enters the walls of your home is carried in the air. You can reduce the amount of moisture that gets into your home, and the mold and moisture damage that can come from it, by air sealing it with Icynene spray foam insulation.
  • Keep pests out – Icynene spray foam insulation does not provide a source of food for rodents, termites, or other nasty critters. It also doesn’t make for good nests, and as a solid material it’s difficult to pass through, helping protect your home from critters.
  • Structural Integrity – Depending on your application, and the product you choose, Icynene can offer extra structural stability to your walls which can’t be achieved using other traditional forms of insulation.

    1. All spray foams should be covered with a 15 minute Thermal Barrier. That is either sheetrock or intumencent paint.

  1. I co-own a group of multi-family rental buildings. We are currently purchasing 2 multi-family buildings per year, and renovating all buildings for energy efficiency prior to opening for rent. These buildings are older buildings, located in Jay, Maine, where we believe foam insulation would be the most benifitial. I would like to set-up a quote for coating the floor joists in the basement of one of our buildings. There will be a plumbing contractor upgrading all of the old copper heating loops for the next two weeks, then we would be looking to have it insulated to cut-down on drafts and boiler room noise. The footprint of this building is 20 x 56, floor joists are 2×10’s and the building was constructed in the early 1900’s. Please contact me via email to set-up an available time for an estimate, so that we can make sure the our property maintenance manager is available. Once again I would like to stress, we are looking to form a healthy relationship with a insulation contractor to meet the needs of our current and future property plans. Thank you for your time.
