GA Foam Sealing Package

At GA Foam Solutions we take pride in our work.  To this end we utilize the GA Foam sealing package to ensure that the job you receive does what we say it will because in all honesty, the job is only as good as the technicians who are putting it in.  When we come to your home or business we do not just show up and begin spraying our products. At GA Foam Solutions, we do the following:

First, we will review the building structure to identify air infiltration points and to prep for access those areas typically not reachable (an example of this can sometimes be found where two walls meet.  On occasion, builders will leave a void in the corner that can allow air to transit from the outside directly to the inside, bypassing the insulation in the wall cavities).

We will also begin prepping for our primary spraying by sealing all cracks and joints around windows, doors, and sill plates with low expansion foam and caulk;
We will prep all windows, doors or other valuable items by covering them with plastic and tape to ensure that they are not damaged by overspray;
When the installation is complete, we will remove all debris as well as plastic and tape from windows, doors and valuables leaving the site cleaner than when we arrived.

Polyurethane Spray Foam

What is Spray Foam Insulation?

GA Foam Solutions uses the latest in polyurethane spray foam products. The polyurethane is a spray-applied insulating foam plastic that is installed as a liquid and then expands to many times its original size.  At GA Foam Solutions we offer both Closed-Cell and Open-Cell Polyurethane Spray Foams with which to insulate your home.

Closed-Cell Polyurethane Spray Foam

Closed-Cell Polyurethane Foam insulation is highly dense and when sprayed expands up to 30 times its original size producing an R-value per inch of 7.4.  In Closed-Cell spray foam, Cells or bubbles in the foam are compacted together, are not broken and each is filled with an inert gas selected to make the insulation value of the foam as high as possible.  An example of Closed-Cell foam insulation that we benefit from every day would be the insulation found in your refrigerator and freezer. closed cell

The advantages of Closed-Cell foam include its strength, higher R-value, and greater resistance to the leakage of air or water vapor making it ideal for windy, damp and water prone locations, such as coastal areas, below grade, crawlspaces, or for the whole house. For many of our clients, Closed-Cell foam is the product of choice.  While more expensive than Open-Cell foam because of its density, at 1 inch thickness Closed-Cell foam develops the all important air barrier and at 2” a vapor barrier.

Open-Cell Polyurethane Spray Foam

closed cell Open-Cell Polyurethane Spray Foam is soft – like a foam cushion in a pillow and is an excellent air and sound insulator. Unlike Closed-Cell foam, Open-Cell foam is less dense, with each Cell in the foam being broken, thus allowing air to fill all of the spaces in the material. Upon spraying Open-Cell foam expands up to 150 times its original size, thereby filling all nooks and crannies in the wall cavity. When spraying is complete, the excess foam is shaved off the studs, leaving a flat surface over which dry wall or other material can be applied. With an R-value of either 3.8 for the .5lb foam or 5.0 for the 1.0 lb foam, you receive and air barrier at 5″ inches of thickness.

Uses for Open-Cell include spraying directly to all walls of a house, and as sound proofing for media rooms.  Open-Cell foam may also be direct sprayed to roof decks.

Intumescent Coating

Intumescent Coating is spray-applied to act as a shield in the presence of fire. Intumescent coatings can be used as an ignition barrier or thermal barrier depending on the thickness installed over the foam.What is a Thermal Barrier?

In regard to spray foam insulation, a Thermal Barrier is a material that separates SPF from all interior spaces of a structure and has successfully completed a 15-minute fire test per established criteria.

Energy Audits

A GA Foam Solutions Energy Audit is the first step in tracking your home’s energy use.  We perform audits in existing homes as well as for clients who would like it conducted as part of a home inspection prior to making that all important purchase.  Each audit is performed by the use of the latest in blower door testing and thermal imaging technology to identify where insulation and moisture issues exist within the building structure.  GA Foam Solutions will guide you through the process during the audit, pointing out your homes deficiencies.  Following the audit we will provide you with a clear path for you to follow to increase your homes energy efficiency. Correcting the deficiencies that we identify could lower your energy costs, increase the comfort in your home, and reduce your carbon footprint in the environment.

Blower Door Test

The standard blower door test is a depressurization test and is done by placing a high speed fan unit in the frame of an exterior door and sucking the air out of the house so as to create a negative pressure in the building. From the air passing through the fan, our BPI inspectors are able to calculate the number of times per hour all the air in your house is changed out, thus allowing us to quantify your homes air leakage. blower door test

Thermal Imaging

thermal imaging Thermal Imaging uses the latest in Infrared camera technology to pinpoint energy loss locations non-invasively so you can instantly see where your problems lie. Thermal imaging inspections are used as part of GA Foam Solutions Energy Audit or can be purchased separately.  If you are looking at moving into a new home, our infrared inspection is a valuable tool in the home inspection process. We can see hidden problems your new home may have such as poorly insulated walls, unsealed windows, and water damage, giving you the knowledge you need to make a wise investment.

We invite you to accompany us as we inspect your home, and we welcome any questions you may have regarding the inspection and images we obtain.

Polyurea Coating Systems

GA Foam Solutions can install the latest in spray-applied Polyurea elastomers to meet your company’s commercial needs. Polyurea is a truly remarkable coatings, linings and joint sealant technology that is really only limited by the imagination of the user. It is a flexible and resilient yet extremely tough plastic-like elastomer finish that is hard to beat for surface protection, whether in cold storage environments at -20 degrees or as a secondary containment liner. Polyurea coatings and linings can be applied to virtually anything. Many uses include application over concrete and steel for corrosion protection and abrasion resistance. They also have tremendous advantages over conventional materials due to their quick application time, fast set nature, and high elongation and durability/abrasion characteristics.
