Spray Foam vs. RetroFoam
Spray foam insulation has taken the DIY home improvement world by storm! Whether you are scrolling through DIY Home Repair Pins on Pinterest or watching your favorite home improvement show on HGTV, you are more than likely going to see spray foam insulation on your screen at some point.
While spray foam insulation is a fantastic option for new construction, when it concerns existing homes, it’s not the ideal insulation choice. Insulating your closed walls with spray foam either means tearing down–resulting in an unwanted lengthy and expensive process.
Budget Exteriors can make all of that hassle disappear! Our RetroFoam is injected from the exterior wall, making the installation process stress free for you and your family! 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!
RetroFoam has the answer to STOP the energy loss through your walls.
With energy costs expected to increase significantly, RetroFoam can quickly pay for itself by reducing your utility bills up to 50%. You may be wondering…how? 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 with RetroFoam. 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. Then, RetroFoam is injected into each cavity and those cavities are plugged once the RetroFoam has been installed. 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 immediate! 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!
