Whether you’re building a new home or you need to retrofit an existing one, CT Retrofit has the best insulation options for you. We offer spray foam spo lets take a look at this incredible product and let you know why it is the top insulation choice.
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation, officially known as spray polyurethane foam, is a foam plastic substance that’s sprayed, like a paint, onto an open wall cavity (eg: unfinished walls) It then expands to create an insulation barrier. After it sets and expands, it provides an excellent barrier to wind, moisture, and outside temperatures. Unlike other forms of insulation, it doesn’t settle or break down over time which makes it a wise investment. CT Retrofit offers spray foam insulation products that fit a variety of needs based on your specific property. Whether you’re just looking for simple insulation or an insulator, air and vapor barrier all in one, we’ve got you covered.
Energy escapes through spaces that typically aren’t addressed by traditional insulation. Spray foam insulation can be applied to a variety of open-cavity areas like attics, basements, crawlspaces, and more. That means your heating and cooling system doesn’t have to work overtime trying to regulate the temperature of these insufficiently insulated spaces.
Pros and Cons
Each of these insulation products has its own advantages depending on what you’re looking for. Let’s compare the two side by side.
