BENEFITS OF SPRAY FOAM

  1. 1

    ENERGY EFFICIENCY

    Spray foam insulation has a higher R-value per inch than traditional insulation materials, which means it can provide better insulation for your home with less thickness. This can lead to significant energy savings and a more comfortable living environment.

  2. 2

    AIR LEAKING

    Spray foam insulation can seal gaps and cracks in your home’s envelope, preventing drafts and air leaks that can lead to energy loss. This can improve the overall energy efficiency of your home and reduce your heating and cooling costs.

  3. 3

    MOISTURE RESISTANCE

    Spray foam insulation is highly resistant to moisture, which can help prevent mold and mildew growth in your home. This is especially important in areas with high humidity or in homes with crawl spaces or basements.

  4. 4

    DURABILITY

    Spray foam insulation is a durable and long-lasting insulation option that will not settle or sag over time like like traditional insulation materials can. This means that the insulation will continue to perform effectively for many years.

  5. 5

    VERSATILITY

    Spray foam insulation can be used in a variety of different applications, such as attics, walls, floors and crawl spaces. It can also be used in hard-to-reach areas, such as around plumbing and electrical systems, making it an ideal option for homes with irregularly shaped spaces.

OUR SPRAY FOAM

We only use 2-pound closed cell insulation. 2-pound closed cell insulation is a type of spray foam insulation that is made using a 2-pound per cubic foot density foam.

This type of insulation is considered to be a “closed cell” insulation, which means that the foam cells are tightly packed together and not as porous as “open cell” insulation. The closed-cell structure makes it a more dense and rigid insulation.

This type of insulation is typically more expensive than open cell insulation, but it offers a number of advantages, including a higher R-value per inch and better resistance to moisture and air leakage. It is also ideal for use in areas where higher insulation value is required such as basements, attics and crawl spaces. Additionally, it is more resistant to compression, making it a good option for use in areas with weight loads such as floors and roofs.

TESTIMONIALS

We at HLB have been working with Warren and his team at Edge-West for some years now as our insulation, vapor barrier, drywall and spray foam insulation installation for a good number of years. We are proud of the relationship we have with them as we can rely on them to take care of our projects with integrity and care. We would highly recommend Edge-West as a contractor for your projects.

Doug Dyck, President – Heritage Lane Builders

I contacted Edge-West to repair some imperfections in a spray foam job done by a different spray foam contractor on our shop. Warren was quick to respond, made an appointment to come out and check out the job. He showed up when he said he would and was quick to provide a quote. I found the price acceptable and we scheduled a date for the work to be done. The crew showed up as scheduled and were polite and professional. They explained the work that would be done. They left the job site nice and clean. I would definitely use them again.

FAQ

When spray foam insulation is installed in an already built and occupied home, certain precautions and steps must be taken to ensure the safety and comfort of the occupants and to properly protect the home and its contents. Our process most typically involves the following steps:

  1. Preparation: We will need to take measures to protect the home and its contents, such as covering floors and furniture and sealing off doorways and vents to prevent overspray.
  2. Installation: We will then install the spray foam insulation. The foam will then expand and harden to form a seamless barrier against air and moisture.
  3. Clean-up and finishing: After the installation is complete, we will clean up any overspray and debris.
  4. Final Inspection: We then do a final inspection and check for any issues that may need to be corrected before the final payment.

It is important to note that it can be disruptive to the occupants of the home during the installation process, and the home will need to be temporarily evacuated during certain stages of the work. We ensure that our work is safe, trusted, clean and high quality.

The R-value is a measure of a material’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation. The R-value of traditional insulation materials varies depending on the type of insulation used.

For example, fibreglass batts have an R-value of around R-3.2 to R-3.8 per inch, cellulose insulation has R-3.7 to R-3.8 per inch, while mineral wool insulation has R-3.0 to R-3.3 per inch.

On the other hand, the R-value of spray foam insulation can vary depending on the type of foam used, but generally, closed-cell spray foam insulation has an R-value of around R-6 to R-7 per inch, while open-cell spray foam insulation has an R-value of around R-3.5 to R-3.6 per inch.

It’s worth noting that the R-value alone is not the only factor to consider when choosing insulation, as the air sealing properties of spray foam insulation can also play a significant role in improving the overall energy efficiency of a home.
