Spray Foam Insulation Solutions

Spray foam insulation is the most versatile insulation product on the planet. Even though spray foam insulation has been used in construction since the 1960’s, it took until the 1990’s before the spray foam insulation began to really start gaining market share in the construction industry. Spray foam insulation has gained a reputation as the toughest, most efficient, most cost-effective insulation available, especially for specialty applications.

Spray foam insulation is a spray-in-place, adhesive, expandable, tough, water resistant, and air-tight cellular plastic insulation. People are constantly finding creative ways to solve structural problems using versatile, affordable spray foam.

For instance, closed cell spray foam is used to lift railroads, fill underwater flotation chambers, strengthen structural supports, or even to set parking lot signs. Spray Foam can also provide a roofing material for commercial buildings, and of course, spray foam insulation provides the best R-value money can buy.

DeFord Spray Foam & Coatings strives to meet your spray foam insulation needs no matter how common or unique they might be, but most of our customers’ projects are among the following spray foam and coatings applications:

Commercial Construction Spray Foam Insulation

If you are a construction contractor, you do not want to be behind the times when it comes to current insulation practices. You also don’t want a subcontractor who does inferior work and causes you and your customer unnecessary problems.

When it comes to spray foam insulation, a poorly trained installer can do a lot of damage, both to your reputation and to the structure itself. Just a few examples of a bad spray foam insulation application that we have seen: overspray, shrinkage, lingering odors, under-depth application, air-pockets, and in some cases, warped framing.

DeFord Spray Foam & Coatings has been in the business since 2010 and we know how to do the job right the first time. We want to make sure you are 100% satisfied with our work.

Residential / Home Spray Foam Insulation

You are finally building that dream home you have been planning for years and this is your one chance to get it right. Do not put insulation in your walls that settles over time or takes on moisture. Do what smart people do, choose spray foam insulation!

If you are not sure spray foam insulation is a smart idea, you owe it to your family to check out the facts and find out for yourself why so many new homes are built with spray foam insulation installed. Just look at all the advantages:

  • Stronger, more durable walls
  • Better air-quality
  • Energy savings of 20-50% over fiberglass insulation
  • A quieter, more comfortable home
  • Seamless air-barrier and insulation in one
  • Fewer bugs
  • Consistent long-term performance
  • Time-tested and Field-proven
Spray foam insulation has been on the construction scene since the 1960’s and it has been well documented and tested to perform well in the real world. Other insulation systems might look good on paper, but once they begin the challenge of fighting our Midwest environment, they perform far worse than the lab tests predict. Oak Ridge National Laboratory tested a real-world wall system in 1992 and they found that conventionally installed fiberglass insulation delivers R-values that are 28% below the manufacturer specifications. Properly installed in new home construction, spray foam insulation performs as well in the real world as it does in the laboratory because it expands to fit, air seals, and stays in place for life.

When it comes to building your dream home, you don’t want to buy cheap insulation now and regret it for the rest of your life. Choose DeFord Spray Foam & Coatings, for new home spray foam insulation services and get the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ve done the right thing for your home and for your family.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Can spray foam make your house too tight?

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is becoming a bigger concern to many with some people thinking you can make a house too tight with spray foam insulation. That is true if you do not have a professionally designed heating and cooling system. The right HVAC system with balanced fresh air exchanges is only part of the solution. Without making your home or business airtight, you cannot seal out the air pollutants and allergens to provide fresh, clean, dry air for your family and employees. We go to great lengths with our Air Sealing and Detailing Work because we have experienced drafty buildings in Iowa winters and from allergies during hay fever season. We take pride as building insulators in making sure your floors, walls, and attics are sealed and secure to make your building comfortable and healthy.
Your project isn't too big or too small.
We take care of everybody, all the time!
