Standard Insulating Co. offers only the best products in spray foam, with the experienced 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 Syracuse, 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, that have 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.
