For an insulation that is adequate and meets current standard, you should set aside at least 3% of your construction budget. Seems like a lot? Remember that in the medium term – i.e. less than 5 years – you will recover every dollar you invest in the insulation of your home. It is not uncommon to see energy savings that exceed 25%. Also, these are recurring savings from year to year!
For every 1000 SQFT, it takes about 3 hours to apply 2.5 in of sprayed urethane on the foundation walls and 3.5 in of sprayed urethane on the end joists. Sounds quick? Our teams are trained to operate in a timely fashion, so as to avoid delaying your construction schedule!

A key element is the need to add a continuous R-4 insulation to the walls above ground, either on the outside, on the inside, or a combination of both. This is intended to avoid thermal bridges and reduce possible heat losses through the structure.
Once it hardens, this insulation material is inert: it therefore emits no VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Note that only certified technicians equipped with adequate respiratory protection are allowed on the premises during the application.
