The most important part of any insulation project is to stop the air form infiltrating a building. There are a variety of ways the air can come into your home or business. By using spray foam and cellulose products, we can reduce the energy loss in your building, providing you with a more comfortable and efficient place to live/work. Both new and existing construction buildings can be insulated with these products.
Building insulation is low-thermal-conductivity material used to reduce building heat loss and gain, and reduce noise transmission. Cellulose insulation is plant fiber used in wall and roof cavities to insulate, draught proof and reduce noise. The thermal performance of loose filled cellulose compares favorably to other types of low cost insulation, but is lower than that of polyurethane and polyisocyanurate foams. Also serving Upstate New York and Utica, NY.
The thermal conductivity of loose-fill cellulose is approximately 40 mW / m • K (an R-value of 3.8 per inch) which is about the same as or slightly better than glass wool or rock wool. This doesn't represent the whole picture of thermal performance. Other important aspects are how well the building envelope is sealed from air infiltration, convective airflows, and thermal bridging.
Cellulose is very good at fitting around items in walls like pipes and wiring, leaving few air pockets that can reduce the overall efficiency of the wall. Dense pack cellulose can seal walls from air infiltration while providing the density to limit convection, when installed properly. The University of Colorado School of Architecture and Planning did a study that compared two seemingly identical test structures, one insulated with cellulose and the other with fiberglass. The cellulose insulation lost 26.4% less heat energy over time compared to the fiberglass insulation. It also was shown to tighten the structure more than 30%.  Subsequent real world surveys have cellulose performing 20-30% better at reducing energy used for heating than fiberglass. Also serving Upstate New York and Utica, NY.
A Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) or Ignition Barrier Coating (IBC) is a material, applied between foam plastics (including spray polyurethane foam) and interior spaces designed to delay the temperature rise of the foam during a fire situation and to delay or prevent the foam's involvement in a fire. TBC and IBC are sometimes necessary when sprayfoam is applied to a substrate. To find out when and where a TBC or IBC is necessary, please call us to find out. Also serving Upstate New York and Utica, NY.
Also, UV coatings may be applied to spray foam applications in areas where the foam is exposed to direct sunlight on the exterior (or interior) or a structure.
Roof Coatings greatly reduce the amount of sunlight that can heat and penetrate your roof. These coatings can prolong the life of the roof and reduce the amount of heat transfered into the building by as much as 15%!!!!
