Spray Foam Difficult Areas
Tates Coating Services insulates difficult to reach areas with Spray foam. Conventional insulations would find this a challenge.
Where it began
We were first contacted by the owners in 2013 when they added a storey to the family home. This addition created a very large roof space. Traditionally used insulation would not create the thermal barrier needed to combat an area of this size. Spray Foam insulation was applied directly to the underside of the tinned roof are and the improvement was immediate. In warmer months heat radiates down upon the tin roof and through to the living area below. With spray foam heat no longer penetrates the tin. The house able to maintain its ambient temperature all day and night, all year round. This is energy saving and efficient.
Difficult to reach areas
Fast track 4 years later and we were contacted to spray foam difficult areas of the newly renovated areas. The angled cavity created by a dormer window was difficult to access from inside the ceiling. We were able to gain access through a man-hole to inject the foam upwards to insulate the area by completely filling the void. Easy, job done. The new room’s roof area was completely and efficiently insulated.
It’s great to see was how the original spray foam insulation had held up. You can see the original insulation used when the home was a single storey house has shrunk and lost its shape. This creates gaps, allowing airflow and inefficiency.
Additionally, we could see that the foam we applied was still in the same conditions as when we applied it. Even more was to be revealed. The dust that continually settles in a ceiling had all but stopped.
Notice the picture containing the silver ducting. The tiny specks of white foam from the original installation reveals next to no dust at all. Consider this! The space created under a roof would be an extra place to store belongings. With Spray Foam there would be no dust, no damp and or damage from heat. It’s almost like a loft space. The foam is sturdy enough to hold a certain amount of weight upon it or you could put light boards across the beams to create an even flatter surface. Energy efficient insulation and space creation as well. Savings all round!!!
