Frequently Asked Questions

Here you'll find answers to the questions we get asked by our clients about spray foam insulation.

Spray foam is a good fill for hard-to-reach places, but there may be challenges connected to its use. Firstly, if you install it improperly, it may result in a reduction of its properties. If the temperature fluctuates during the foam application, it may lead to overexpansion or contraction, as a result of which some gaps will remain unsealed. Also, some foam types consist of chemicals with potentially harmful effects on the body, so it's very important to choose a trusted supplier.

In fact, you can buy a spray gun and foam, which are usually part of standard DIY kits. However, for safe foam insulation, you'll also need such things as protective gear and a polyethylene sheet to cover your items. All of these cost a decent amount of money, but they do not guarantee a satisfying result. Thus, we recommend reaching out to professionals to prevent such potential issues as mold and poor insulation performance caused by inadequate application.

Yes, this is the final and irrevocable answer because SPF is suitable for everything, whether it is a commercial, industrial, or flat roof, for any configuration, e.g., high or low sloped roofs, as well as for any climatic zone. An incomparable advantage is that maintenance of SPF roofing systems does not take much effort away from you. .

The cost of the coating depends on the type of polyurea. When it comes to aromatic polyurea, it is typically cheaper than epoxy. However, it's not suitable for surfaces exposed to direct UV rays. As for aliphatic Polyurea Coatings, they present a more costly option due to their glossy appearance and the fact that they're highly resistant to fading and UV-ray-induced loss of properties. This way, before making your choice, it's advisable to consider the physical properties of the material and correlate them with the intended use.

If you decide to apply a garage floor coating on your own, you should note that this coating cures rapidly, so the polyurea application should be fast and accurate. Without prior practice, it will be difficult to achieve high-quality results. That is why we recommend considering professional help. However, if you are still determined to do it on your own, don't forget about protective clothing, gloves, respirators, and special tools like buckets with mixing sticks, masking tape, roller frames, and so on.

The average price of blown-in insulation is from $0.50 to $2.30 per square foot, and this spread is due to the material because fiberglass is much cheaper than cellulose insulation. If you pick DIY blown-in insulation, then your costs will be lower as you will not have a need to hire a construction team; however, if your priorities are reliability and quality, then the help of a pro-squad will not be superfluous.
