We can take care of all your spray foam insulation needs at your home or business.
Do you want to properly insulate a newly constructed part of your home or do you want to replace damaged old insulation in parts of your house in or near North Charleston, South Carolina? There are many options when it comes to insulation, so which type of insulation is best for your home? Spray foam insulation is a top pick for many reasons. Spray foam insulation can fill holes and cracks that other types of insulation (like batts or blown-in) can’t fill. Insulation has something called an R-Value, which is the material’s heat flow testing level. Traditional batt fiberglass insulation has a base rating of 2.2 per inch. Spray foam insulation can be done in two ways: closed-cell spray and open-cell spray. Spray foam insulation has higher R-Values, between 6.5 and 3.5.
Closed-cell spray foam usually takes multiple applications and usually swells to about an inch thick when first sprayed whereas open-cell applications generally take one application because it swells upwards of 3 inches thick. We use tested and trusted foam products from Johns Manville, Demilec USA, and Icynene.
Having a home that isn’t properly insulated can result in an expensive power bill every month. Proper insulation in your walls, ceiling, and attic can save you upwards of 30% on your heating and cooling bill with proper insulation. Spray foam insulation is also considered an air barrier that keeps air from passing through it unlike some of the other kinds of insulation.
