Insulation

The envy of the insulation industry, Simonson Installation is a proud part of a 100+ year tradition of excellence.

When we hear a pitch claiming “my crews perform to code”, the truth behind such a claim is: If they did anything less….it would be illegal. We believe in raising the performance bar……above and beyond industry standards.

ALL SIMONSON INSTALLERS are CERTIFIED in proper safety and insulation installation techniques. Make sure your installers are.

Residential Spray Foam

The best insulation method for northern cold climate housing is Closed Cell Polyeurathane Spray Foam Insulation, sealing your house for the best return on your insulation investment.

  • Roof area
    • Ceilings are the largest source of heat loss in the house (hot air rises)
      • Seals penetrations through the ceiling
    • We recommend two inches of closed cell polyeurathane foam to seal the ceiling’s penetrations, topped with our blown insulation to cost effectively bring the total R-Value to your areas code requirements
    • You want the highest R Value product in vulnerable tight top plate areas
  • Wall Cavities
    • Seals the gaps, cracks, voids in the wall to eliminate air infiltration
      • Air Infiltration matters: Cold won’t go through insulation if it can easily go around it
      • Adds structural rigidity
      • 24 hours allowed to completely off gas….product is safe, inert and stable.
      • Better performance for longer term, providing a better seal and consistency (other types of insulation may “settle” allowing cold spots in the wall)
    • Energy Walls (foundation or block walls)
      • Seals the basement
  • Rim Joists
      • When overlooked, Rims are the second largest area of the home where penetrations to exterior contribute to heat / cooling loss
