FEMA recognizes the benefits of closed cell foam insulation in disasters! Closed Cell foam is an “acceptable” product in areas where floods happen.
If your home is drafty, leaky, and poorly sealed from the outside air, you will never be able to dehumidify your home as you are simultaneously filling the house with humidity.
The easy offering is $1200 Federal Tax Credit equal to 1/3 of the cost of the materials as long at the installed insulation meets current energy code standards.
Foam insulation increases the temperature of the shingles by roughly 3 degrees, hardly enough to modify the lifetime of the shingle.
The three different methods to gain approval for the Building Envelope are the Prescriptive approach, Trade-offs, and the Performance approach.
Condensation issues occur when you have high humidity and cold surfaces. It is common during renovations that mold is discovered behind the drywall.
Attics that are unfinished represent the biggest area for improvement in a finished home.
The best time to discuss insulation with your builder is at the planning phase. If you take advantage of foam, you may be able to downsize your HVAC requirements and save on your energy bills.
While many people think the price is all that matters, the price will quickly become unimportant if you wind up with a botched spray foam application.
