Urban Insulation Corp of Buffalo, New York, is a major insulation contractor for batt insulation and for foam insulation. Urban Insulation specializes in all phases of residential, commercial and industrial insulation.
Selecting the right insulation is a task that is often overlooked. However, your choice of insulation has a major impact not only on your pocketbook, but also on the long-term quality of the air you breathe and your overall health and comfort.
If you are thinking of remodeling or buying a new home, we highly recommend Icynene® soft spray foam insulation. This air barrier will protect you from the harmful effects of air leakage, helping you increase energy efficiency, improve indoor air quality and minimize incidental moisture-related problems (like mold and mildew). Air-sealing properties also help facilitate a draft-free environment that offers long-term payback for energy savings of up to 50%. Also, you can enjoy a quieter home by reducing unwanted noises that come from flushing toilets or a television in the other room.
Builders and remodelers choose Urban Insulation for many of their residential and commercial projects. With smart, responsible spray foam insulation choices, Icynene® helps you build healthier, quieter, more energy efficient homes. With HFC- and PBDE-free products composed of renewable and recycled materials, you’ll know you’ve made a smart choice for your customers, their families, and the environment.
Batts are pre-cut panels of insulation and are available in a variety of lengths, widths and R-values. Batt insulation is made to fit within most regular wall framing, which are usually spaced 12", 16", or 24" on center, and for either 8-ft. or 9-ft. high walls.
Batt insulation is available with and without facing. Faced batts are used in exterior walls as well as attics, finished basements, ceilings, floors, knee walls and cathedral ceilings. The facing material usually serves as a vapor retarder and makes handling and attachment easier to install. Factory-applied vapor retarder facings are generally made of kraft paper.
Faced batts are attached to framing members by stapling through the flanges. Unfaced batts are installed between framing members but not attached, allowing friction to hold them in place.
Spray foam can be used as an insulating and air sealing product for residential wall and ceiling cavities. The insulation is sprayed, via special equipment, into wall cavities and expands to fill all the nooks and crannies in a wall cavity. Excess foam is scraped off the studs to form a uniform wall cavity. Spray foam insulation makes it easy to completely fill wall cavities with insulation and to perform air sealing in the same step.
There are two types of spray foam: open-cell (isocyanurate) and closed cell (polyurethane). The closed cell foams typically have a higher R-value than open-cell foam.
Sprayed foam insulation is applied as a liquid which contains a polymer (such as polyurethane or modified urethane) and a foaming agent. The liquid is sprayed through a nozzle into wall, ceiling, and floor cavities where it expands to fill every nook and cranny. Because it expands into tight areas, sprayed foam is ideal for insulating steel framing and around outlets. By acting as a wind and air barrier, it often eliminates the need for separate air-tightness detailing which can increase energy efficiency and allow downsizing of the heating and cooling system equipment. Sprayed foam insulation does not shrink, sag, settle, or biodegrade.
