Spray foam insulation has far greater insulating properties than fibreglass – or any other insulation. The heat that rises and escapes through the roof of our houses is causing us to burn more carbon, and waste money.
Stop the heat you’re paying for escaping by insulating the underside of your roof with Lapolla spray foam.
BENEFITS OF SPRAY FOAM INSULATION
Lapolla spray foam insulation is an insulation and air barrier material that seals walls, floors and ceiling cavities against air movement, including spaces around electrical outlets and light fixtures and where walls meet windows and doors. Lapolla spray foam insulation can provide an effective air barrier insulation to minimise air infiltration through walls and ceilings, preventing drafts, cold spots and energy loss. The performance of Lapolla spray foam insulation means that humid indoor/outdoor air is restricted from entering the walls & ceilings and condensing, thereby minimising the possibility of moisture entrapment & build-up within the wall & ceiling cavities. This is conducive to preventing building envelope failure due to moisture damage.
For homeowners, Lapolla spray foam insulation offers the opportunity of lower heating and cooling costs from reduced air infiltration and a more comfortable home, draft free without cold spots. Furthermore, Lapolla’s continuous air barrier capability will significantly reduce unwanted airborne noise from the outside resulting in a quieter interior living space.
Lapolla spray foam products do not contain environmentally harmful blowing agents like HFCs, HCFCs or HFAs, in fact Lapolla spray foam insulation products are 100% water-blown making them better for the environment.
Spray foam expands up to 100 times its original volume within 4-10 seconds. Independent studies indicate that with 24 hours’ active ventilation after spraying is completed, Icynene spray foam insulation is safely cured.
No. However, water can work its way through the foam under pressure or by gravity force. When the foam is placed on water it will float and upon removal it will not contain any water and it does not lose any of its insulating properties. But, if it is immersed under water, water can be forced into the foam by the hydrostatic pressure; however, once it is removed from water and allowed to dry out, the original insulating properties will return.
No. Lapolla spray foam products are chemically inert meaning they will not change chemically or physically over time.
Lapolla spray foam insulation has available since 1986. It is available in over 30 countries on four continents worldwide.
As an effective air-seal, Lapolla spray foam eliminates the air gaps through which airborne sound travels. As a result, Lapolla is able to noticeably control mid-range frequencies noise, which includes the most common sounds, the human voice and stereo music.
