Installing Icynene and signs to watch for

There are myriad reasons why home and business owners should add Icynene spray foam insulation to their structures. These products boost structural integrity, increase heating and cooling options, cut heating and cooling bills and present a significant return on investment for all entities using these resources. The addition of Icynene makes structures more viable, boosting the strength of any building and making it easy for owners to deter pests from nesting, reduce environmental detriments and make total quality of interior experiences far superior to what their neighbors can offer.

However, there are a variety of factors that owners should be wary of leading up to a spray foam insulation installation. A certified Icynene specialist can help identify these concerns and find solutions, but being aware of the variety of issues a simple installation can encounter helps interested individuals communicate more effectively with their contractors.  Here are some top factors to be mindful of leading up to a renovation involving Icynene.

Moisture issues

  • This is a substantial issue for a number of home and business owners. Moisture is a naturally occurring phenomenon that expresses itself in a variety of ways and all throughout every structure. There are plenty of pipes coated in condensation, crawl spaces close and damp from nearby heat sources and accumulating external outlets where rain water and humidity pool on flat surfaces.
  • It's important for owners of any structure to disclose the known issues regarding moisture to their Icynene installers so that these individuals can tackle the biggest problem areas first. It's quite common for certified specialists to detect other areas of moisture and dampness that owners may not know about themselves during an inspection, making this process vital to total infrastructure improvement and management.

Roof structure

  • The kind of roof on a building and the lay of the surrounding territory architecturally can have a significant impact on how businesses and homes operate. A flat roof is a common source of heating and cooling problems, moisture collection and other negative elements in homes and corporate offices of all kinds. However, even peaked and gabled designs are prone to problems that each of these specific designs can offer.
  • Check with a certified spray foam installation expert to find out what challenges your roof holds and the best ways to mitigate these issues. It's easy for people to see their roofs as a simple job that just requires a spray-down with the right insulation products, but if owners don't take the right steps to isolate potential insulation problems and reduce the impact of these structural issues, it could be that a whole upgrade process is rendered useless.

Spacing issues

  • One of the leading problems owners encounter when adding spray foam insulation is the variety of areas they need to reinforce. For older homes and artistic structures, damaging the natural flow of a space can be a huge detriment to the overall value of a space. When there is limited room inside interior walls and authenticity is at stake, it can be difficult to add insulation products to these buildings.
  • Icynene easily fits any nook and cranny, though, sealing the  structure. It's easy to reduce the amount of physical insulation needed to properly insulate older and antique homes without losing efficiency once Icynene spray foam is added to the plan.

Be sure to discuss structural and management problems with a certified Icynene insulation specialist right from the start of a renovation. This allows the expert to make a more detailed inspection, identify risk areas and find the plan that's best for your building.
