Have you noticed that no matter what your thermostat is set at, it just doesn't seems like the temperature of your home differs that much from outside? If you answered yes to this then you may need to think about adding some new insulation to your home.
All insulation is intended to prevent the transfer of hear in your home. This means keeping it in during the cold seasons and keeping it out during the warm ones. Not only that, depending on what type of insulation you have, it can also prevent or reduce the flow of air through gaps and cracks. Having a well insulated home can make your home more energy efficient, lower your monthly energy costs, all while keeping you comfortable throughout the year. However, not all insulation options are created equally. Contact us

Spray foam insulation has one of the greatest R-Values on the market. In short, the higher the R-Value the greater the insulator. Spray foam is made of two chemicals that are combined to create the insulation. This type of insulation can be injected into or sprayed on to your walls. The foam will then expand, filling up the empty spaces, and quickly harden creating a thermal and air barrier. Because of certain properties the insulation has, spray foam will not settle, sag, or lose its shape in any way. This is in part what makes it such a good option for insulation. This type of application is suited for irregularly shaped areas, finished areas and around obstructions. It will also not expand or contract based on the temperature. This means that it won't have any stress effect on surrounding materials.
