RESIDENTIAL INSULATION & APPLICATION GUIDANCE
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.
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.
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.
