In 2006, Owner Mark King created Iowa Spray Foam, his very first business. He was inspired by his father before him who was a union carpenter who owned his own construction company for many years. He remembers with his siblings, helping out his father on nights and weekends. He remembered when he came home helping to cut wood for their wood-burning furnace and promised himself then that he would have an efficient home someday that didn’t take a lot of energy to heat or cool. From there, Mark’s interest in energy efficiency grew. In 2013, Mark expanded his service area and opened KC Spray Foam & Coatings.
Mark primarily enjoys helping out homeowners: he wants the homeowners to experience the warm, comfortable home that he so desired as a child. Helping that dream come alive in others is a rewarding experience for him.
Over the years Mark’s business has grown quite a bit. In the early days, he worked nights and weekends learning all about the business and how to successfully bring that comfortable, warm feeling to people’s homes. He continued working full-time at his “regular job” as in transportation industry for the first year or so and brought on his first full-time employee shortly after that. Three short years later business was booming and Mark brought on a full-time salesperson and other applicators. During Iowa Spray Foam’s first year in business, they sprayed about 100,000 pounds of spray foam, and now both businesses combined spray well over 500,000 pounds of spray foam annually – not even factoring in all of the gallons of coatings sprayed.
