Our insulation of choice is Tripolymer Injection Foam. This is because Tripolymer Foam Insulation is one of the safest, eco-friendly, and longest-lasting insulation solutions on the market today. See our video below to see how Tripolymer Foam can be applied to your home for energy efficiency purposes.
Tripolymer Foam was developed specifically as a thermal and acoustic wall insulation for existing wall cavities. While it may be a shock, Tripolymer Foam isn’t actually new at all and has been applied to homes, businesses, and other buildings all across the country for over 35 years. Even more shocking is that even over this span of time, Tripolymer Foam insulation still remains as one of the best insulators with an R-value of 5.1 per inch. It’s this superior energy-saving quality that has earned Tripolymer Insulation Foam approval from Energy Star.
One of the best qualities of Tripolymer Foam insulation is that it can be applied as the only form of insulation in your house or supplement existing insulation to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Installation is simple, quick, and doesn’t even require that we enter your house thanks to Tripolymer’s expanding properties. It is also one of the most eco-friendly options for insulation solutions as it is 100% biodegradable while completely resisting the growth of fungi in your walls.

The Difference Between Spray Insulation and Injection Foam Insulation
Another popular form of insulation on the market that some contractors use is spray form. Formally called Spray Polyurethane Foam or SPF, is a high-density spray that is applied to walls which expands as it settles to insulate walls. It is often noted as the ‘cheap’ option for insulating a wall, but it does come with its disadvantages. First, spray foam requires open walls in order to be applied correctly. This can often mean displacing your family for a certain amount of time. Tripolymer Injection Foam insulation, on the other hand, can be applied through the wall using small holes under your siding. This is a convenience that spray foam simply cannot offer.
Another difference between the two is how they stand the test of time. When it comes to spray foam, the insulation appears to seal airflow between the studs of a house’s structure. However, after a couple of years of settling and the house shifting, gaps as large as an inch can start to appear between the studs and the insulation as well as the wall and the insulation. All this space is free room for heated or cooled air to escape from your house. With Tripolymer Injection Foam insulation, the time to set takes only 25 seconds and the space that is filled is permanently insulated for years to come.
