Lapolla Spray foam roof insulation

Keep the heat you pay for locked inside your home.

Lapolla Spray Foam Insulation

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




Saves you money

Spray foam insulation will reduce your annual energy costs. The air-tight seal helps keep conditioned air inside the structure to reduce heat loss. As a result, you’ll spend less on heating in winter and make overall savings. An insulated home provides a more attractive choice for buyers, if you plan on selling in the future. Savings start as soon as the insulation is applied.

Increases comfort

Once the spray foam is applied, you’ll be able to enjoy increased levels of comfort. Insulation eradicates drafts, and reduces cold and hot spots throughout the home by closing any gaps present. The result is an even temperature throughout the property. If you live in a noisy area, you will be able to enjoy reduced sound levels thanks to the spray foam seal.

Healthier living

Many illnesses, like asthma and allergies, are often caused by airborne pollutants such as dust, dirt, carbon monoxide and many more. By choosing spray foam insulation, your home will be sealed from a wide range of particles in the air. Many customers notice a positive difference in their health after installation.

No mould or pests

The protective features include a reduction in the accumulation of moisture, lessening the chance of mould appearing. Plus, the insulation helps deter pests from coming into your foam. A solid layer of insulation helps seal potential weak points, making it more difficult for insects and rodents to enter.

Reclaim valuable space

Extra insulation is often added to the ground, rather than roof line. The result is a reduced storage area, as boards no longer fit after the installation. Spray foam can be applied to the roof line, increasing storage, height and practicality and letting you retain your storage and loft space

Lifetime warranty

Spray foam insulation contributes to overall structural stability, depending on the thickness and application of the material on installation. Plus, all installations are carried out by Lapolla & AirTight licensed installers and come with manufacturer lifetime limited warranty*.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

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.
