Spray Foam Insulation vs. RetroFoam Wall Insulation
Spray foam insulation has taken the DIY home improvement world by storm! Whether you are watching HGTV or scrolling through DIY Home Repair Pins on Pinterest, you are likely to see spray foam insulation on your screen at some point.
While spray foam insulation is incredible for new construction, when it concerns existing homes, it’s not necessarily ideal. Insulating your current walls with spray foam requires tearing down your existing drywall–resulting in an undesirable process that is both lengthy and expensive.
RetroFoam can make all of that hassle disappear! Our RetroFoam is injected from the exterior, making the installation process stress free! The benefits of RetroFoam are invaluable, including energy efficiency, lowering utility bills, as well as a quick and easy installation process.
An Energy Efficient Choice
According to the Department of Energy, the average American spends $2,000 each year for their energy bills. Their studies have shown that a potential $200-$400 of that average could be going to waste due to drafts or air leaks!
The team at Gulf Coast RetroFoam has the answer to STOP the energy loss through your walls.
With energy costs expected to increase, RetroFoam will quickly pay for itself by reducing your utility bills. RetroFoam prevents air infiltration by sealing all wall cracks and crevices where air can potentially enter or escape your home.
A Hassle-Free Installation Process
RetroFoam is typically installed from the exterior, which means that most existing homes can be insulated. The installation process may vary slightly, depending on the type of siding on your home. For most homes, a small section of your siding is removed and a hole is drilled in each stud cavity. RetroFoam is then injected into each cavity and those cavities are then plugged. Finally, after cleanup is completed the siding is put back on, leaving no mess behind! Most installation processes can be completed in one day and the benefits are instant! This brief installation process eliminates the need for construction, wall tear down, or movement of furniture; making this process extremely convenient.
A Cost-Efficient Insulation
An exact cost of the installation of RetroFoam cannot be provided due to varying factors, but we can can briefly explain ways in which RetroFoam is cost efficient. RetroFoam can potentially pay for itself by saving you money on your energy bills and it can potentially lower your energy costs by up to 50% with its excellent sealing qualities. Unlike spray foam insulation, it’s not necessary to tear out walls or remove old insulation, resulting in a significant cost drop and making RetroFoam the most cost-efficient choice for insulation. RetroFoam insulation is the home improvement that PAYS YOU back!
