If you are like most people in Northern climates, you know about freezing cold rooms in the winter and hot oppressive conditions in the summer. Many people find their walls so cold, or hot that they often are convinced that there must be no insulation at all in their walls at all. Sadly, this is usually not the case. Homeowners are often shocked when an investigation into their walls reveals that they in fact DO have pink or yellow fiberglass insulation. Unfortunately, fiberglass bat insulation is a very old insulation technology and a poor one at that. So does one have to tear down the drywall and reinstall better insulation with something better? For most insulating products the answer would be yes. However, there is a way to avoid the mess and high cost of removing drywall just so one can have a properly insulated home. The solution is AirKrete. AirKrete is a foam that we spray into the cavities of your walls, attics, ceilings and crawl spaces. When we apply it, the foam has the consistency of shaving cream before it hardens into a light yet cement-like insulation. By drilling small holes and inserting a tube into your walls ( from the outside) AirKrete can fill in all the voids and even fill in the space of the near useless fiberglass insulation. Not only can AirKrete fill 98% of a wall cavity, it is also the world’s only Fire Proof, mold and pest resistant insulation.
AirKrete Foam Insulation is also a great choice for homeowners who would like to deaden the impact of outside noise. AirKrete does not echo sound like other foam insulations, but deadens any sound that attempts to penetrate it. AirKrete can achieve sound deadening of up to 50 to 60 decibels in situations where extreme outside noise is a problem.
