Insulation Services we offer

Whether you are remodeling your home or building a new structure, we provide many energy-efficient insulation options that save you money and keep your space comfortable and welcoming at any time of year.

Your Options Explained

What is a good “R” value for my home? Can I install insulation myself? Should I use foam or fiberglass? There are many things to consider when you replace your residential or commercial insulation. Doing the research and making an educated decision may seem overwhelming.

Our team is here to help. We understand that every project is unique, and Spray Foam Tech wants you to make the best choice for you, your space and your goals. We work hard to make this process easy and hassle-free for you.

First, you need to know your options. We provide the following insulation types:

Foam Insulation Services in Elk River

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam consists of a blend of chemicals that are heated and sprayed through a hose. A thick, gooey and foam-like substance is created which sticks to anything it touches and is ideal for hard-to-reach places and walls containing pipes, wires, ducts, wood and metal. Within seconds, the foam expands and creates billions of tiny, insulating air bubbles which form a completely airtight seal.

Spray foam is available in two varieties:

Open-Cell Spray Foam

Open-cell foam is an excellent air barrier, provides effective soundproofing and is able to provide the same R-value for a lower cost than closed-cell foam. This is a softer type of foam that also does a great job of insulating around wires, pipes and other obstacles. It completely stops air movement in your walls, and it's a stronger vapor retarder than fiberglass while still requiring a water barrier like fiberglass does. Open-cell foam is a great option for large volume areas; an onsite inspection is recommended.

Closed-Cell Spray Foam

This type of insulation is a more rigid foam that effectively prevents heat from escaping from your structure and also does not allow in moisture. Closed-cell foam is a more rigid and dense insulation material and is able to provide a higher R-value in smaller spaces. It is also able to act as it's own vapor-retarder.

Other Services We Offer:

Fiberglass Blankets/Batts

This is the most common type of insulation currently available and works by trapping air in between tiny fibers. These tiny air pockets slow down heat as it tries to pass through the insulation.

Blown-In Insulation

This is a process of blowing tiny pieces of insulation through a large hose, allowing the installer to expertly direct the flow into confined spaces. This is a common method to insulate attics and allows a controlled depth to be layered on top of existing insulation. This process is specialized to fill-in walls from floor to ceiling.

Foam Board Insulation

Foam boards are available as stiff boards which are easier to install and more difficult to damage. Just like spray foam, millions of tiny bubbles in the boards provide fantastic insulation. But since the boards a pre-made, they are not form-fitted to your structure and do not create an airtight seal.
