Needing to upgrade your existing walls/roof with retrofit blown insulation? New construction or renovation? How about fiberglass batting? Please be in touch for more information or to schedule a site visit.
The attic is one of the largest sources of potential heat loss in a home and often one of the most neglected areas when it comes to insulation, especially in older brownstones & row houses. If your top floor is hot in the summer or if the furnace can't keep up in the winter, chances are your roof needs more insulation.
Our attic service involves blowing fiberglass or cellulose onto the attic floor at the required R-Value. Precautions need to be made for recessed lighting fixtures that are not 'IC' rated.
Whether lathe & plaster or drywall, the walls of your home are arguably the most beneficial and important areas to insulate.
We can retrofit insulate wall cavities with blown fiberglass or dense packed cellulose. This process can be done through the interior or exterior depending on the siding of the home.
Insulate ceilings when you wish to acheive separate zoned heating. Floors over unheated spaces such as parking garages should always be insulated.
If you're renovating then you should consider batting insulation for ceilings and floors. We offer various types of batting for specific applications.
An uninsulated crawlspace/basement is a major source of energy loss and contributing factor to thermal inefficiency.
We install batting insulation for most basements but foam and retrofit options are also good choices.
Having an issue with noisy neighbors? Need to effectively reduce airborne sound transmission? We offer sound batts and retrofit insulation options.
STC (Sound Transmission Class) - Transmission loss (TL) begins when sound waves strike one side of a partition or assembly (for example, a wall, ceiling, or floor), causing it to vibrate. The vibration travels through the partition and produces a sound on the other side. Some of the vibration energy may be lost during the transmission, which results in TL. High TL means that less sound is produced on the other side of the partition. The STC rating is a single number rating of how well a building partition or assembly reduces airborne sounds transmission from one space to another, thus increasing TL. In short, STC measures how much sound is held inside the room, rather than being transferred to other rooms.
Architectural, design and engineering communities have utilized the many benefits and unique characteristics of sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) for nearly half a century.
Sprayed polyurethane foam has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 per 1 inch thickness (depending on the particular formulation and application, higher values have been achieved), enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulation material. SPF systems are frequently used to insulate and protect a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
