Known as one of the leading wine producing regions of France, the commune of Bué in the Loire Valley is one of the few communes able to produce Sancerre wines. One winery has taken the innovative step to insulate their wine cellars with spray foam insulation aligning with its own environmental policy.
While spray foam insulation is a common building material that is specified by architectural firms, builders and general contractors, the average homeowner may not necessarily know what it is, how it can be used within their home and how it compares to the other insulation types available on the market.
While building a new home or office, clients will lean towards what they’ve known for years – either the most convenient or cheapest option. However, the choice needs to also be driven by performance, quality and reputation of the manufacturer.
