Foam Insulation Atlanta GAFor high-quality foam insulation installation in the Metro Atlanta, GA, area, there’s really only one name to trust, and that’s 31-W Insulation. Since 1972, we have used our experience and expertise to take care of the insulation and home improvement needs of countless homeowners across the country.

The professional installers at 31-W are trained and experienced in the installation of numerous types of spray foam insulation in Metro Atlanta homes, including:

  • Open-cell insulation – An insulating material that offers homeowners an air barrier which reduces the amount of outside noise that can enter your home. Open-cell foam insulation performs like wood, absorbing and releasing moisture vapor, but because it is an inert substance, mold, mildew, and bacteria will not grow on it. This insulation has an R-value of about 3.6 per inch.
  • Closed-cell insulation – This insulating material is one of the most efficient products available, with R-values around 6.5 per inch. It uses gas within its cells, providing an exceptional insulating air and moisture barrier, and it also makes existing buildings stronger by increasing structural rigidity.
  • Green-foam insulation – A green alternative that is based on renewable products, such as soy and recycled plastic materials. Green-foam has an R-value of 6.9 per inch that does not diminish as it ages.

No matter what type of foam insulation you choose, you will enjoy significant energy savings, because foam seeps into and closes the tiny gaps in your home, preventing valuable conditioned air from escaping. You will also enjoy a more comfortable breathing environment because closing those cracks and fissures reduces the amount of outdoor allergens and pollutants that can enter the home.
