What do I look for in a quality installation?
We are happy to go over what makes for a top-notch installation. Here are four basic things to look for. One, the right thickness of spray foam. This refers to the appropriate depth in the framing cavities of the wall and in the roofline so that the local building codes are met. Two, identify and seal all of the air leakage sites. This brings in the idea of sealing the envelope. We know the ways to test and find any such leakage sites. Three, inspect and understand the building enclosure. This way the correct amount of foam is applied so that a thermal bypass does not occur anywhere. Instead, even coverage keeps the interior at optimal temperature. Four, skilled technicians who make the application to all the intended openings in the correct way.
