Going Green with Eco-Friendly Spray Foam Insulation
September 25, 2017
Throughout the industry, spray foam insulation is being recognized as a much better option for maximizing energy efficiency and enhancing indoor comfort. The product is sometimes referred to as Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation, and today it’s being used in new home construction, general home renovations, and specific retrofit projects. Best of all, contractors can now offer a green approach with eco-friendly spray foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation can be effectively installed in practically every part of the home – from basements, to attics, to garages, to exterior walls. It’s an application that has far more product benefits than anything comparable. And with Walltite ECO™, contractors now have an option to install eco-friendly spray foam insulation. Walltite ECO™ is a high quality, premium product ideal for residential, commercial, and industrial installs.
At Great Northern Insulation, expert installers recommend Walltite ECO™ for applications that are above grade and below grade. The product is ideal under concrete floors; inside wood or steel framing; and even in foundation walls. For the team at GNI, no other product seals and insulates like spray foam - and it’s all done in a single application. As an added benefit, Walltite ECO™ is considered to be eco-friendly spray foam insulation.
