Receive Quick and Efficient Spray Foam Installation from Professionals

At first, a DIY spray foam insulation project may seem like the timelier option, especially if you only need a small amount of insulation. However, there could be several issues that only a professional would recognize, so it could be much more involved than you realize. Plus, you have other professional and personal responsibilities to focus on. Your career, family, and other relationships are often high priorities that take away from your available time for this project.

DIY Spray Foam Insulation Can Be Unsafe if Installed Incorrectly

When installed by a professional, spray foam insulation is safe for every type of property; it will not cause any structural or health-related issues. However, this type of insulation must be installed by an expert because it can be unsafe if done incorrectly. To ensure safety, we will first inspect your property to check on the structure, layout, and ventilation system. This will help us confirm if spray foam is the right type of insulation you need. 

Then, we will check the amount or thickness of spray foam required to properly insulate the building. In most cases, we recommend that occupants evacuate the building until the spray foam has settled, which can take up to 24 hours. If you're inexperienced with applying spray foam, you will not be aware of all the intricacies of the process. Because of this, we never consider spray foam insulation a DIY project.
