Behind the Build – North Shore Custom Home in Winnetka – Spray Foam Insulation

April 21, 2021

When planning new construction for their custom home, an important consideration for homeowners is not only energy efficiency but also air quality.  Closed-cell spray foam insulation installation contains zero ozone-depleting agents and, as the name suggests, is completely closed. The cells are pressed together, so air and moisture are unable to get inside the foam.  As much as 40% of a home’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. Gaps, holes, and air leaks can make energy bills unnecessarily high. Closed-cell spray foam weatherizes your home acting as both insulation and air barrier, closing those nooks and crannies that let air escape and increase monthly energy bills.  SMART Builders, Inc. homeowners choose closed-cell spray foam insulation because it is one of the most efficient insulating materials commercially available.


We appreciate the support and information from Residential Commercial Insulation, Inc. in Lake Villa, and SWD Urethane of Mesa, AZ  about this leading-edge technology.
