Insulation that can go anywhere
Flexibility and versatility. Those are two big reasons why so many people have warmed up to spray foam insulation over the last few years.
The product can be applied anywhere, points out Pat Dubeau, owner of Enviro-Tec Custom Foam Insulation.
Since he began the business nine years ago, he and an employee have installed the insulation in homes, businesses, barns, hot tubs, shipping containers, and around underground pipes. “The product works,” says Mr. Dubeau, noting that the spray is a feasible alternative to the conventional batts.
The sealant is particularly useful in those hard-to-reach areas such as crawl spaces and on uneven surfaces.
Developments have made the products greener, meaning that they now contain less ozonedepleting elements.
Mr. Dubeau has two locations – a foam insulation operation in Apple Hill, and a Cornwall shop, which specializes in custom box liners for trucks.
Serving a region from the Québec border to Hawkesbury to Ottawa, Mr. Dubeau says that foam insulation is now available in eight different colours. But the hue has no effect on insulation value.
Adding insulation to your home is a great way to increase the comfort of your living environment. Adding insulation to an existing home will regulate the temperature, making your living environment more enjoyable.
Insulation will also increase sound control. Insulation creates a sound barrier, keeping unwanted sounds out and protecting your privacy by keeping the sounds from inside your home from being audible outside. Insulating your home also creates a moisture barrier, keeping unwanted dampness out of your house. This will protect all of your possessions indoors and create a much more comfortable living environment inside.
Safe and cozy
Another benefit of insulation is keeping environmental pollutants and allergens out of your home.
This protective layer creates an added barrier between you and the outside world, keeping your home environment regulated, healthy and comfortable.
