Spray foam’s performance can be so immediately effective when it comes to residential retrofit projects that it can motivate a homeowner to forgo an initial insulation application and widen the scope of the project. Case in point: for his 8,000 sq. ft. home located in Yorktown Heights, New York, the owner opted to expand an SPF project as it was occurring after he decided spray polyurethane foam could best fulfill all of the project’s requirements.
Blue Bird Insulation was brought in for the project, which at first consisted of applying SPF to the underside of the roof, between the floors of the living areas, and to the above and below-grade exterior walls. However, after noticing spray foam’s performance during the application, the owner decided to expand the project and have SPF applied to additions being constructed in the basement area. If that wasn’t enough, the owner then asked the Blue Bird crew to install SPF on areas located on the interior of the home solely for sound attenuation.
