Build the New Home Your Family Will Love with the Help of Spray Foam

Planning and building a new home takes a lot of time and can be stressful as you want everything to be just right. From the flooring to the countertops to the right shade of paint, there are plenty of decisions to be made about your new home. However, one important decision is often overlooked -- choosing the right insulation. This is a key decision that will have a major impact on your family’s overall comfort, as well as how much you end up paying the local utility company each month.

More and more people are now asking their home builder about spray foam insulation to avoid uncomfortable rooms, high energy bills, and other problems down the road.

The Right Insulation for Your New Home Makes All the Difference

Comfortable Living Space

Foam insulation provides the necessary air seal to keep your home comfortable, healthy, and energy efficient all year long, no matter the season.

Sustainable Energy Bills

Foam insulation will keep your furnace and air conditioner from working overtime, reducing the carbon footprint and keeping your monthly energy bills under control.

Avoid Future Headaches

Ice dams, moisture concerns, and cold bonus rooms are major problems that can be prevented by having the proper insulation and air seal from the start.

Your Dream Home is a Reality

Your family will be happy for years to come that you made the smart insulation choice for your new home.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does foam insulation compare in price to blown-in cellulose or fiberglass?

While foam insulation is about two to three times more expensive than blown-in cellulose and fiberglass, it will pay you back with the air seal it creates on your monthly energy bills. Learn more.

Is open cell or closed cell spray foam better to use in my home?

In the majority of cases, open cell is the best fit for a new home, as it is more pliable and will move and shift as your home settles. Closed cell is a better fit for pole barns and commercial buildings due to its rigidity. Learn more.

Will spray foam insulation pass code?

The quick answer is yes. The longer answer covers the difference between prescriptive requirements and performance. Learn more.

Will my new home be too tight if I use spray foam insulation?

This is a common misconception. In a new build home, an HVAC contractor will determine the size of the system the house needs, which ensures it won’t be too tight, and will also have good air quality and humidity. Learn more.

Will the areas around the windows or doors be sprayed as part of the installation?

Yes, this is a complimentary service we provide when insulating new build homes. Learn more.

What is flash and batt?

Flash and batt is spray foam insulation combined with fiberglass batts. We don’t offer this, but some contractors do and install it in open wall cavities. Learn more.
