Spray Foam Insulation in Northern Illinois
The Ideal Way to Seal out Heat and Cold
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is the only truly effective insulation for metal buildings. No other insulating material can create an airtight seal for a constant, comfortable temperature year-round. SPF insulation is totally seamless and self-adhering, so it won’t sag, shred, or fall off. In fact, it adds structural strength, because the foam forms a chemical as well as a mechanical bond with building surfaces. Applied as a liquid, the spray foam expands and spreads into all the seams and cracks. It wraps around the metal and braces and totally eliminates air infiltration, sealing the building airtight. This prevents cold winds from blowing through in winter, and buffers the building from intense summer heat.
Easier Temperature and Humidity Control – Lower Energy Costs
Originating in the cold storage industry decades ago, spray foam insulation quickly proved invaluable for metal buildings. It is the high-performance standard for environments where it is imperative to manufacture, create, or store products at a constant temperature. Because the tight air seal prevents conditioned air from escaping, your heating and cooling systems don’t have to work as hard to maintain the space. That means greater comfort and control, and lower utility costs. Unlike fiberglass and cellulose, spray polyurethane foam insulation also provides a complete vapor barrier. This protection is essential for metal buildings, which frequently “sweat” in humid conditions, promoting the growth of mold and mildew.
SPF insulation is the smart choice for:
- Machine shops
- Commercial buildings
- Hobby shops
- Storage facilities
