RESIDENTIAL INSULATION & APPLICATION GUIDANCE

AIR SEALING

Airflow through cracks and holes in the walls, ceiling and floor is referred to as air infiltration. In addition to the use of spray foam, air infiltration is minimized by caulking and sealing the building envelope. A home that is not sealed for air infiltration will be uncomfortable due to drafts and will use about 30% more energy than a well-sealed home. Controlling air infiltration is one of the most cost-effective energy-efficient measures in modern construction practices.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Lapolla insulation can be used to insulate your attic space and protect your home from inclement weather & moisture related damage. In a non-vented attic, insulation is applied directly to the underside of the roof sheathing to insulate the entire attic from seasonal heat and cold. Spray foam is installed between the roof rafters, along the soffit areas and directly to all exterior surfaces such as gable walls, dormers etc. to produce an airtight building envelope.

KEY BENEFITS OF LAPOLLA SPRAY FOAM:

• Significantly reduce your energy bills
• Improve air quality
• Improved indoor comfort
• Eliminate hot and cold spots
• Reduce infiltration of pollutants, allergens and other asthma triggers
• Longevity, as Lapolla spray foam lasts a building's lifetime
• Minimizing unwanted exterior noise

Testimonials

“Prior to the open cell insulation being fitted in our property, our home could not maintain good heat and had to be boosted by an oil filled radiator in the lounge. After the insulation was installed, we had to turn the heating down as it was immediately too hot. The home feels drier, the air cleaner and the noise from outside is almost non-existent since it has been fitted. These are all additional benefits that make this product such value for money. We are so pleased with the installation and although it does save money on heating, we love the additional unexpected benefits that come for free”

What Can Spray Foam Do That Fiberglass Can't?

Spray polyurethane foam insulation is commonly used in one of two ways to insulate your attic space: vented attic and non-vented attic. With a move toward passive homes, non-vented attics are becoming the obvious choice for enhanced energy efficiency. Non-vented attic insulation is applied directly to the underside of the roof sheathing to insulate the entire attic from exterior temperatures. FOAM-LOK spray foam is installed between the roof rafters, along the soffit areas and directly to all interior surfaces such as gable walls and dormers to produce an air tight building envelope making the attic a part of the conditioned space of the home.
