Did you know that spray foam could create more demand for your homes?
You create your clients dream home. Their last big purchase, and it’s a collaborative process of concept, design, materials and construction. You want the ability to bring the latest building science to bear for your clients. You need to properly justify each recommendation you make based on facts and sound science. Your clients want to know about the environmental impact of your materials, the anticipated operating cost for the home and the indoor air quality – a little different than in the past.
The material choices you make, and your ability to convince them it’s the right thing to do will affect the satisfaction of your clients for their lifetime. And, as you know, some work better than others. Some are more costly than others. Some restrict your design creativity. Some enhance it.
Incorporating polyurethane foam in your next project can create the most energy efficient, quiet, safest envelope possible. Let's talk about how.
Residential Production Home Builders
Is building to Code good enough anymore?
Let’s talk about how polyurethane foam can speed production rates, reduce callbacks and improve your customer satisfaction ratings.
High volume, production home building is competitive and success is based on your ability to build a quality product with a minimal build schedule and no callbacks. Design, materials and labor all play a big role in delivering the finished product. As efforts are made to reduce build costs, and increase speed of production we all drive to the bottom line – the building code. Keeping in mind the code is the minimum requirement, have we truly investigated our choice of insulation and determined the true installed cost vs. benefit to each? It’s been my experience, and I’ve heard it time and time again, that “spray foam is the best insulation, but it costs too much”.
That’s a true statement if we only consider the installed cost per R. Even if we do only that – the cost difference is not substantial, but when we include the additional benefits and material/labor deducts that foams provide, the cost benefit then goes to foam.
Let’s talk about the true value proposition using spray foam insulation can bring to your organization.
Residential Net Zero Home Builders
Are you leveraging the benefit of advanced materials to deliver net zero?
Let’s talk about how polyurethane foam can contribute to an energy efficient envelope, safe and comfortable interior space and do it in a cost effective manner.
You already understand the motivation, you see the need, you contribute to the “path to zero inventory” but, can you do more? Is function placed ahead of form? Is reluctance to purchase highly efficient homes because of their esthetics? It’s my observation that most net zero energy home designs lack a degree of flare in their appearance, which may be contributing to their low appeal Perhaps, the 90-degree corner, flat plane appearance may be driven by material choice.
Everything is a board or panel and we treat the edges to provide continuity in both form and function. Spray applied products, specifically insulation, provide a fully adhered, monolithic, non-permeable, structural advantage that conforms to any shape or form.
Let’s talk about the impact spray foam can have on your next Net Zero project.
Residential Modular Builders
Does the insulation you choose cost money or save money?
Let’s talk about how polyurethane foam can save you money.
Structural strength and rigidity are two things a batt, a board or a blown insulation cannot offer you. Transportation of your modular unit to the jobsite and standing them up when they get there often results in damage or framing member separation – which costs you time and money By using spray foam insulation installed on the assembly line in your facility, the framing members are glued together by the foam, the foam adds structural strength so thinner framing members can be used. Foam is a highly effective insulator – R7.4 per inch so you can reach greater thermal efficiency in a thinner wall. Closed cell foam is a vapor retarder eliminating the need for additional vapor control layers.
Together we can provide product education and installation training to your design teams and shop floor staff, make equipment and material recommendations as well as help develop selling tools and value propositions for your sales staff.
Let’s talk about how to implement spray foam into your production process, leverage the value prop and eliminate the impact of variable cost.
