Spray foam Installation
Icynene® is a complete insulation, air barrier system that wind proofs and seals walls, floor and ceiling cavities against air movement, including spaces around electrical outlets and fixtures, at baseboards and where walls meet windows and doors. This means that outside air (either hot or cold) cannot seep through walls, causing drafts or cold spots. It also means that humid interior air cannot enter the walls and condense.
The system combines a material with a Certified Service providing any builder or homeowner with a truly cost effective method of energy efficient construction. The material is polyicynene foam, an organic material developed from products of the petrochemical industry similar in composition to many that are already in home use today, such as upholstery padding, pillows and mattresses. The service is a custom insulation fit into any size cavity. Installation is generally independent of environmental conditions.
The Icynene Insulation System® is a spray-in-place system that is 100% water-blown and contains no harmful emissions, like HCFCs, HFAs, HFCs or formaldehyde, once cured. Icynene® permanently adheres to the construction material without shrinking, sagging, or settling- while filling and sealing all joints, crevices and gaps. It completely seals any-shaped cavity so there is no compromise between design, functionality, and performance. Surface preparation is similar to that required for painting or other products requiring surface adhesion. Within minutes the foaming process is complete and the walls may be covered.
By virtue of its low permeability to air, its adhesion to other building materials and its flexibility, The Icynene Insulation System® becomes much more than just insulation. It provides good air leakage control, moisture control and sound control in addition to insulation, thus becoming a one step insulation, wind barrier system. The Icynene Insulation System® takes the place of building wrap, fiberglass, polyethylene vapor barrier, tape, foam and caulking, and eliminates the labor intensive work associated with air tightness detailing when insulation with conventional insulation products.
Our installation meets stringent criteria which includes product and equipment knowledge, installation and building science. We can do the job from the Adirondacks, Capital, and Catskill regions.
