What Is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam is a chemical product created by two materials, isocyanate and polyol resin. When mixed with each other, they react to create an expanding material that can be sprayed in place. The expansion of this liquid creates high thermal insulation without any air infiltration.
Epic Building Solutions is a full service insulation contractor based out of Albany, New York and serving the surrounding areas. We specialize in the installation and application of spray foam insulation to seal up homes and buildings and prevent air infiltration. Whether you're looking to insulate your walls, attic, or crawl space, we'll be able to help.
Advantages To Using Spray Foam For Insulation
Healthier indoor environment
When it comes to the health of your home, there are a variety of factors that come into play. From allergens and pollutants in the air to mold on walls or mildew in laundry rooms; Spray Foam is an excellent way for homeowners in Albany, NY to combat this problem. As you can imagine, excess moisture in your home inevitably means damp surfaces which create environments that are perfect havens for fungus like mold and musty smelling mildew.
Spray Foam, when installed by qualified professionals, reduces the amount of outdoor pollutants and allergens that can enter your building by sealing up any air gaps.
Spray foam insulation is such a versatile product that it can be used to seal the gaps in buildings as well as eliminate air infiltration. It does this by filling up every little space (due to expansion of the foam) and sealing it tight with an insulating barrier, unlike traditional methods of insultation which are more brittle or porous.
Our spray foam application is safe and free of toxic air contaminates.
