Loft

A quarter of heat is lost through the roof in an uninsulated home. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss and reduce your heating bills.

Light-Density Open-Cell Spray Foam (ocSPF)

Light-density open-cell SPF is commonly known as half-pound foam. It is a semi-rigid material with a sponge-like appearance that expands during installation and creates small, open cells that are filled with carbon dioxide. Due to its ability to expand during the application process, it fills cracks, crevices and voids and adheres to irregular surfaces or substrates to form an air sealing insulation.

While the R value will vary, most ocSPF products have an R value of around 3.8 per inch. Unlike medium-density closed-cell SPF, ocSPF is not a vapour barrier. When installed at 5.5 inches or more, ocSPF does act as an air barrier. It is often used for interior walls because it provides sound reduction by blocking and absorbing air leakage. It is usually only recommended for indoor applications.

Moisture Control

Water and moisture in the building envelope is the single, greatest threat to building durability in residential construction. In addition to causing building-durability issues, moisture can create ideal conditions for mold growth, which can dramatically impact occupant health.

Air Leakage

Unsealed, responsible for about a third of the air leakage in a home.

As much as 40% of energy loss is due to air infiltration. Therefore, the most effective way to improve energy efficiency and comfort in your home is to seal it with foam.

About spray foam insulation

Where Does My Home Lose Energy

Superior energy efficiency mostly depends on creating a better air seal. Wall insulation is a significant issue in home energy savings, but there are other factors that will lower home energy efficiency.

Frequently asked questions

Which brand of Spray Foam do you use?


We use only Lapolla Spray Foam. The type of Spray Foam used is vital. Many providers now use cheap imported materials from China which, is unlikely to conform to British standards and could create problems with efficiency along with further problems that can effect the struture of your home.




Where do you install the foam?


The foam is commonly installed in the loft of properties. This is due to ease of access but also it is the place that you usually lose the most amount of heat from. Many of our customers have issues with sound insulation at their properties and we often install the foam in stud walls or create a padded layer between external walls which then require plaster board and plastering afterwards. (For external insulation we use specialised foam boards and K-Render over the top of the boards).




How long does application take?


Dependent on the size of the area, application takes between a couple hours to a day.




Do you provide warranty?


All our jobs are provided with a 10 year warranty.
