Residential Spray Foam Services

Proper residential insulation helps to provide stable in-house temperatures, leading to an immense reduction in home energy expenditures and enhancing the comfort of occupants. There are many different kinds of insulation techniques that homeowners can adopt, and while all have their benefits and downsides, spray foam stands out as the most versatile, cost-effective, durable, and eco-friendly choice.

Spray Foam GTA has the solution to your home insulation needs. Spray foam is made up of special compressed liquid that is sprayed or injected into open spaces on walls, floors, and roofs using machines.

Once applied, the liquid expands and forms bubbles that dry up, filling up space. Because gases are naturally poor conductors of heat, and because the foam is made up of materials that have high resistance to heat transfer, heat exchange through it is significantly reduced.

During, say, summer when the outside is very hot, there will be no holes and creeks to let the heat into the house. In the same way, when winter approaches and it becomes too cold outside, the warmth inside the house does not escape to the outside. In other words, temperatures within the room remain stable regardless of conditions in the external environment.

There are two types of liquid-based insulation foams, namely, open cell and closed cell foams. The differences between the two occur in their methods of expansion when applied to a surface.

For example, open cell foams expand by taking in atmospheric air, while liquids used in closed cell foams have their own gas compressed within them, and this expands once they get into contact with the surface. The open cell spray foam is usually cheaper than closed cell spray foam.

The only problem with the former is that, because it absorbs moisture, it is not quite effective for extremely moist surroundings such as in many basements.

Before application, special precautions must be taken to avoid spills on sensitive equipment as well as to ensure that just enough foam is sprayed into an opening.

At Spray Foam GTA, we have a team of technicians with special skills and equipment that enable us to apply spray foam effectively while keeping all risks in check.

While there are many other ways through which homeowners can insulate their homes, spray foam offers many advantages. To begin with, sprayed form is quite flexible and can be applied to all kinds of surfaces, regardless of the building material or shape.

Adoptable to any shape

A majority of other insulators have fixed shapes, and this means that they can only fit in specific places. Liquid sprays, on the other hand, can flow into any kind of gap and adopt its shape.

Rigid and lightweight

Secondly, the light nature of spray foams makes them suitable when you don’t want to add weight onto a structure. At the same time, the spray content forms a rigid structure that adds strength to your walls.

Reduces material costs

Thirdly, spray foam insulation reduces material costs as it requires a lower exterior wall depth to achieve the maximum insulation effect. While other forms of insulation require at least a 2 x 6 thickness to be effective, a 2 x 4 wall depth will be enough to achieve maximum heat insulation if you chose spray foam. Due to its low thermal load, spray foam also helps to minimize your energy bills further because the material does not absorb much heat.

Noise reduction and pest control

Other benefits of spray foam insulation include noise reduction and preventing rot and pest attacks. If outside noise is causing you discomfort, insulating the house using spray foam could help minimize it.

The foam seals all the unnecessary openings around the house, thereby preventing air vibrations from getting in through them. This will be quite effective in keeping out moderate external noise and providing occupants with a more comfortable interior space.

Structures made of wood may suffer lots of damages from insects, mold and moisture if adequate protection is not provided for the wood. Apart from its main use, spray foam can also double as a surface protection.

Specialist Spray foam in the Attic

Also, being indigestible, ants and other insects will be unable to attack surfaces, thereby adding value to your home and giving it a longer lifespan. What’s special about our residential spray foam services is that, we only use eco-friendly sprays that are bio-based. Our sprays are extracted from bi-products of castor oil, sugar, and corn oil after other edible and useful stuff have been obtained from the products. By emphasizing recycling, we are happy to be contributing towards environmental conservation.

Because our products are made organic materials, they pose no danger to people, plants, or other organisms around their areas of application. But this does not in any way suggest that they are inferior when it comes to protecting your home. Our spray, Foamsulate Eco, has been categorized as a “Type 2 Long Term Thermal Resistance” (LTTR), a prestigious position held by only the toughest sprays in the industry.

Another advantage of using Spray Foam GTA services is that your insulation is fitted by highly trained professionals who excel at what they do. All our technicians have the requisite certifications for the task at hand, and so you can be rest assured that you’ll have nothing but the best results – along with this you can also hire Plumber Wave to make sure your water draining, and plumbing systems are in working order to ensure complete home insulation safety. While there are many other ways through which homeowners can insulate their homes, spray foam offers many advantages. To begin with, sprayed form is quite flexible and can be applied to all kinds of surfaces, regardless of the building material or shape.

Many spray foam applications are done on spaces that are hard to reach. The major areas include the following:

  • Window and door cable frames

  • Floor chases

  • Electrical cables and plumbing spaces

  • Gaps between walls and switches

  • Roof leaks and fixtures
  • Hatches on staircases and attics
energy efficient technology for all weather conditions

While some of these may appear insignificant to the common observer, their impact on your energy cost over the long term is immense. Our technicians will take a look at your home and identify all areas that require sealing before commencing work. It is advisable to remove any items stored in attics and other heavy work areas in advance so as to make the insulation job quicker and more efficient.
