Spray Foam Insulation vs RetroFoam Wall Insulation
Spray foam insulation has taken the DIY home improvement world by storm! Whether you enjoy watching home improvement shows on HGTV or you prefer to scroll through DIY Home Repair Pins on Pinterest, you are probably likely to see spray foam insulation on your screen at some point.
While spray foam insulation is an incredible option for new construction projects, it’s not ideal in all circumstances when it comes to existing homes. With spray foam insulation, insulating your existing home means tearing down your walls, potentially resulting in a lengthy and costly process.
RetroFoam wants to assist in making all of that unwanted hassle disappear! Our RetroFoam is injected from the exterior wall, making installation of stress free for you! The benefits of RetroFoam are incomparable to other types of insulation. RetroFoam’s benefits include energy efficiency, lowering utility bills, a quick and easy installation process.
An Energy Efficient Choice
According to the Department of Energy, the average American spends $2,000 each year for their energy bills. Studies have shown that a potential $200-$400 of that average could be going to waste due to drafts or air leaks that your current insulation is not preventing!
RetroFoam has the answer to STOP the energy loss through your walls. Traditional insulation often breaks down over time, trapping dust and moisture, resulting in the inability to prevent those air leaks. RetroFoam prevents air infiltration by sealing all wall cracks and crevices where air may enter or escape your home.
A Hassle-Free Installation Process
RetroFoam is installed from the exterior, allowing it possible to insulate almost any existing home. Depending on the type of siding on your home the process may vary slightly. Generally, a small section of your siding is removed and a hole is drilled in each stud cavity. Then, RetroFoam is injected into each cavity and our install team plugs each of the holes. Finally, after cleanup is completed your siding is put back on. Most installation processes can be completed in one day and the benefits are immediate! This quick installation process eliminates the need for construction, making this process hassle free.
A Cost-Efficient Insulation
RetroFoam can potentially pay for itself by saving you money on your energy bills. RetroFoam can help lower your energy costs by up to 50% with its excellent sealing qualities. Unlike spray foam insulation, it is not necessary to tear out walls or remove old insulation, resulting in a significant cost drop and making RetroFoam the most cost-efficient choice for insulation. RetroFoam insulation is the home improvement that PAYS YOU back!
