Now may be the perfect time to tackle that home renovation project you’ve had on your bucket list. After all, if you’re handy, it often makes the most sense to remodel your current home instead of trading up to newer construction. If your house is drafty, needs an addition, or could simply use a green upgrade, it’s time to take a closer look at Versi-Foam® spray insulation.
When it comes to home renovation, spray foam insulation has some distinct advantages over other types of insulation. First of all, it’s user-friendly, even for people with no experience. It also dampens sound, protects against insects, and is moisture resistant. Furthermore, closed cell spray foam provides a higher R-value (the primary measurement of energy efficiency) than other types of insulation.
Does one of the following situations fit your circumstances? If so, set aside some time for remodeling before life gets busy again.
My House is Leaky
Depending on where you live, it’s probably been too cold to tackle your insulation project during the winter. Spray foam insulation needs to be between 65°F to 90°F to install properly. As spring approaches and temperatures rise, you won’t need to warm the chemicals before use. While drafty doors and windows are fresh in your mind, make a list, insulate the cracks and crevices, and check each one-off. Pretty soon your air conditioner will be working as efficiently in the summer as your heater will next winter.
My House Needs a Few Extra Square Feet
Is now the right time to build that home addition for your growing family? If so, you want it to be as well insulated as the rest of your house. That’s where spray foam insulation comes into play. Whether you’re adding a bedroom to the attic, finishing your basement, or even doing something as simple as adding a sunroom, Versi-Foam® is the easiest way to ensure that your new living space is comfortable.
My House Is Older and So Is My Insulation
So, you finally purchased that older home with the character and craftsmanship that you love. But the last time it was insulated was decades ago. Now is a good time to walk through the house checking the roof, basement, HVAC system, and attic to make sure that they’re insulated to 2020 standards. An added plus for older homes is that spray foam insulation absorbs noise from the outside and inhibits the transfer of sound between rooms.
My House Needs a Green Upgrade
Giving your house a green upgrade has been on your bucket list for several years. Perhaps now is the time to check it off your list. Remodeling for energy efficiency is a win-win. Spray foam insulation saves energy, reduces the use of fossil fuels, and helps to reduce global warming gasses. In addition, many green practices lead to better health and a higher quality of life. As a property owner, you can take care of the environment, have a more comfortable home, and save money — all at the same time.
