Architects have been specifying spray foam insulation in commercial buildings for many years now. They understand how valuable proper insulation and a superior air barrier is to a commercial building. Spray foam insulation is a good fit, it provides the insulation, air barrier, and drainage plain in one, cost effective application. Many commercial buildings have complex, difficult areas that need to be insulated. Since spray foam insulation is a custom fit for every cavity it is sprayed in, it is a natural choice for these projects.
KC Spray Foam & Coatings puts their employees through a 32-part in-house training program. A large component of their training is safety. All of our employees have been trained on how to use scaffolding, scissor and boom lifts, and other workplace hazards they may come in contact with. We also specialize our training to cover product knowledge, building science, and equipment operation.
Closed cell spray foam insulation is the most widely-used type of spray foam for commercial products, often because of it is a vapor barrier and a air barrier.
Using closed cell spray foam on block or brick walls, replacing the foam board, air barrier, and draining plain is becoming the go-to product for these type of walls. Having one contractor install the insulation, air barrier, and the draining plain in one saves not only time but money.
