Current Homeowners


Step 1 – Verify Areas of the Home


We work with our clients to note what parts of the home we will need access to and what type of materials homeowners can expect to prepare. Some areas we install spray foam insulation include:

  • Attics
  • Crawl spaces
  • Garages


Please note that although we try to work quickly and not interfere with your daily routine, our team will need clear driveways, hallways, and stairwells to be able to access the identified spaces better with our equipment.


Step 2 – Clear the Space


As much as possible, we request all rooms to be free of items. This allows more space for our teams to work and keeps your items clean and free of spray foam!


Step 3 – Identify Electrical Outlets


Our team will help identify all electrical outlets in the area receiving spray foam installation, but we ask that homeowners help note any that are hard to find. This is to ensure we properly secure each with spray foam while avoiding covering the outlet completely.


Step 4 – Seal Air Leaks


Spray foam insulation naturally acts as an air barrier, sealing up all the nooks and crannies in spaces, but we ask that larger air leaks are addressed prior to spray foam installation. If you have a question about an area, don’t hesitate to ask your spray foam expert!

New Construction Homes


For new construction builds, please make sure all electrical work has been completed prior to insulation. Once we have spray foam in place, it will be more time-consuming and messier to break through the spray foam to add electrical outlets. Even more, we’ll have to go back in and seal the cracks around electrical outlets to ensure no air seals are unaccounted for. Your general contractor should be on top of this, but don’t worry—our guys will double-check the space needing spray foam insulation before we start installing.
