By designing, constructing or retrofitting an AirTight home, traditional structural envelope problems can be identified and corrected with the right insulation. Conventional products do not provide an effective solution to many of today’s usual building envelope problems, including:
- Non-Conventional Framing
- Vapour Drive
- Air Infiltration
- Unventilated attics & crawl spaces
Effective insulation offers a wide range of benefits. Energy costs are reduced, air quality and safety are improved, and you can enjoy a higher level of comfort. AirTight SprayFoam insulation provides all these features.
An effective insulation solution can deliver peace of mind, and guarantees that you and your family enjoy maximum comfort and greatly reduced energy losses.
Electric and water savings contribute to reduced energy costs, as do weather-stripping and caulking.
Our service can re-insulate part or the entirety of your home. We can provide you with a complete energy assessment that identifies which areas of your home are responsible for the most energy loss. Once the weak points have been determined (usually walls, crawl spaces or an attic) we can apply spray foam insulation to deal with the problem.
You can also retrofit a part of your home that has never been insulated. We’ll assess the space, and give you an estimate on an insulation application that will reduce your energy levels.
Ceiling, flooring and walls occasionally require insulation to reduce drafts.
