The Value and Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation (SPF)

Efficient cooling and heating. Spray foam is a powerful insulator with a higher R-value to prevent air leakage both in and out of your home, increasing thermal performance and lowering your heating and cooling bills. Studies have shown that as much as 40% of a building’s total energy loss is due to air infiltration. SFP provides an air-tight seal for better indoor temperature control, creating a more comfortable indoor environment. 

Noise Control and sound absorption. SPF seals gaps minimizing air-borne sound transmission reducing high and low frequency noise. Having an effective sound barrier can make all the difference in a renovated basement. 

Improves air quality and reduces pollen and allergens because *air cannot penetrate the walls like traditional insulation. Reducing external allergens can be especially helpful in households with allergy sufferers.

Provides a barrier against unwanted pests. SPF prevents small bugs, rodents, and other critters from getting into your home.

Prevents the growth of mold and mildew. SPF stops moisture by not allowing air pockets where moisture could accumulate. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly around doors and windows. SPF seals gaps and restricts moisture from getting in, preventing an environment where mold can grow. 

Improves overall comfort. SPF conforms and adheres to surfaces, sealing cracks and cervices to create a consistent, air-tight seal especially around windows and doors. Temperature remains consistent and heat transfer is controlled for a more comfortable and enjoyable indoor climate.  

Quality foam insulation equals savings. As much as 40% of a building’s energy is lost due to air infiltration from gaps, holes, and air leaks. SPF saves you money on your heating and cooling bills and you may even qualify for tax credits when choosing spray foam to insulate your home. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program estimates that by adding insulation and sealing air leaks, you could save up to 20% on your monthly energy bills.

Spray foam insulation is durable and has a longer life-span. *SPF provides many structural advantages including increased wall strength and resilience.

The Value and Benefits of Using Premium Metal Studs (Steel Framing)

Cold-formed steel (CFS) leads the way as the preferred framing material for multiple reasons. 

Resilient. CFS does not expand or contract, warp, split, crack, or creep with changes in moisture content. Metal studs are completely unaffected by moisture and humidity if they are galvanized. Because of this they cannot warp or rot so they will remain straight and sturdy for a long time.

Sustainable. Recycled steel does not emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Wood does emit VOCs and is not recyclable.

Durable. Metal studs have a high tensile strength. Steel-framed buildings are shown to be more structurally sound against the forces of nature such as high winds, earthquakes, snowstorms, and even hurricanes! 

Non-combustible. Using metal studs is a safeguard against fires. Steel framing is non-combustible where wood is combustible. With steel framing, you may also qualify for insurance premiums that otherwise would be disqualified with wood framing.

Rodent and termite Resistant. No more critter and termite problems! This means maintenance costs overall will be lower.

ToughRock Mold-Guard Drywall

The Benefits of Using ToughRock Mold-Guard Drywall

Featuring a moisture-resistant core, ToughRock drywall provides outstanding protection against mold and mildew.

ToughRock® Mold-Guard™ Gypsum Board is designed to provide extra protection against mold and mildew compared to traditional paper-faced gypsum board products. When tested, as manufactured, per ASTM D3273 (“Standard Test Method for Resistance to Growth of Mold on the Surface of Interior Coatings in an Environmental Chamber”), ToughRock Mold-Guard Gypsum Board achieved a score of 10 – the best possible score for this test. It’s ideal for high humidity interior areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements and laundry rooms. This board may be used in wet areas behind tile, such as tub and shower areas.
