Last winter seemed like one for record books. We had days upon days of constant temperatures below zero. And when sub-zero temperatures weren’t the issue, snow accumulation was. Buy, hey, having all four seasons is one of the reasons we love living in the Utica, NY area. People in this area know how to enjoy aspects of every season, but they also need a place to retreat for some warmth and comfort. No, I’m not talking about a trip to the Bahamas, but maybe the next best thing. New spray foam insulation can make your home into the warm retreat you need to combat those wicked winter days.
Okay – even as a spray foam insulation contractor – we admit, new spray foam insulation for your Utica, NY home is not quite as exciting as a trip to the Bahamas. And to some the potential cost of an insulation project may seem a bit intimidating at first, but if you take a look at the overall picture you will find that, in the long run, it will actually save you money on heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. And maybe you can use those savings for that trip to the Bahamas after all.
Insufficient insulation can actually lead to serious ice buildup around the roof area during the winter months, and its weight can destroy the structure.

Standard Insulating Co. is one of the areas most experienced spray foam insulation contractors. We offer only the best products in spray foam, with the knowledge to help you make the perfect choice for your home or business. Spray foam is quickly becoming one of the most popular choices in insulation, and its benefits are numerous. Spray foam offers the greatest protection from air leakage of all insulations because of its fluid application, which gives it the ability to seep into any openings where heat escapes in the winter or comes in during the summer. Its compact consistency gives it the highest R-value available per inch of any insulation, offering the greatest energy efficiency to save on your utility bills while also keeping you more comfortable at the same time.
The spray polyurethane foam is activated when its two liquid components a combined on the job site by your friendly Standard Insulating Co. technician via special mixing equipment. Once the two parts merge, that liquid expands into foam and is conveyed via heated hoses into the areas needing to be filled. The mixing and application isn’t an easy process, of course, and it’s prone to be a bit messy, so you’ll want to leave that job up to our professionals to make sure the job is done right and with the least mess possible.
The wall and ceiling cavities are filled easily because spray foam flows easily and naturally into the nooks and crannies of the space to be insulated, eliminating any potential drafts. It is also water resistant, so it will protect your investment from water damage and remove the likelihood of any condensation problems. Spray foam delivers protection from the moist conditions that are perfect breeding grounds for mold and mildew, helping keep you family safe from potentially harmful contaminants. It also helps protect against airborne contaminants like dust and pollen to make breathing inside a little easier, especially for anyone prone to allergies when cooped up for the winter.
We install open-cell, closed-cell, and green spray foam insulation in all kinds of structures, from A-frames and ranch styles to townhouses and cottages to brand-new construction. Wherever there‘s a need for additional insulation, we are here to help our Utica, NY neighbors.
Open-cell spray foam is the least expensive per inch of application. It boasts the benefits of an air and moisture barrier that not only saves energy but also offers sound resistance. It also has a Class 1 fire rating, and an R-value of about 3.6 per inch. With open-cell spray foam, there is no lingering chemical smell after application. It also uses less material than closed-cell spray foam, making it more environmentally friendly.
The closed-cell version of spray foam gives you an air and waterproofing barrier, a Class 1 fire rating, and an R-value of about 6.7 per inch. It can also be useful when applied along with fiberglass insulation. Closed-cell uses hydro fluorocarbon blowing agents, however, which has a higher global warming potential.
Green foam is the most environmentally friendly, made from either material that has been recycled or is renewable. It uses a higher-yield material that is based from castor oil, an all-natural ingredient used for years as a cure-all and still found in daily household items like lip balm.
