Icynene contractors help ensure home integrity with spray foam products

The integrity of a home is based largely on the products it's made of and the way these elements are assembled. A strong foundation and weather-treated beams help promote a sturdy outer shell and stability to support interior walls, floors and other spaces. However, there are yet more assets contractors can add to houses that grant these buildings more soundness and longevity. Icynene spray foam insulation is a strong support as well as a great protector against the outside world. Adding this product to every home will help owners reduce their heating and cooling bills while they rest assured with the peace of mind that this spray foam will perform consistently over the long term.

Clean Crawl, a crawl space weatherization and maintenance firm, wrote that properly insulating attics and other interior areas throughout the home that owners usually don't access is essential. Putting in the right insulation allows businesses to ensure homeowners that their structures have been strengthened against weather elements like moisture, wind and pest infestations.

Building such a barrier between outside factors creates a cleaner, healthier home environment. The source pointed out that a well-maintained crawl space and other such areas promotes safer air and fewer toxic particles floating through a house. Pests and pollens can have significant negative impacts on occupants, while drafts can introduce mold and moisture to other building aspects. Protecting both people and property requires a better total guard against these elements getting inside the house.

Encasing value
Proper sealant throughout a home is usually offered by separate companies than those putting in insulation, but Icynene spray foam creates an air-tight barrier on its own as it is applied. Depending on the kind of product installed, the overall structure of a home can be significantly improved. Icynene closed-cell spray foam insulation offers reinforcement and strength to a home, while open-cell products offer more flexibility and seasonal movement.

Each of these products also offers a substantial R-value* rating, meaning less is needed than traditional fiberglass insulation in order to gain the same heating and cooling benefits. Icynene spray foam is known for helping homeowners save as much as 50 percent^ of regular heating and cooling bills, making it a popular product for construction firms to pursue. Partnering with an Icynene-certified contractor means that building teams erect structures that potential buyers will be more interested in, as they can easily see the long-term savings that an energy smart home with spray foam insulation can offer as compared to other kinds of structures.

* R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are other factors to consider. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live in. Also, your fuel savings from insulation will depend upon the climate, the type and size of your house, the amount of insulation already in your house, and your fuel use patterns and family size. If you buy too much insulation, it will cost you more than what you'll save on fuel. To get the marked R-value, it is essential that this insulation be installed properly.

^ Savings vary. Find out why in the seller's fact sheet on R-values. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.
