Q: Why should I use BioBased foam instead of fiberglass
A: BioBased spray foam completely seals your home. A 30-50%
energy reduction over traditional products, can be expected. It does
not have any loose fibers or dust and offers no food source for molds
to grow. BioBased spray foam can significantly improve indoor air quality.
Q: What is the difference between BioBased spray foam and other brands
of spray foam?
A: BioBased spray foam is manufactured in the United
States . The use of soybean oil in the formulation, in place of petroleum,
makes the BioBased product a greener insulation product. In addition,
the R-value is slightly higher than other brands.
Q: How does the cost
compare to other products?
A: The initial upfront cost is higher .
There are some things that can be eliminated during the construction
process that are typically needed when using traditional insulation products.
House wraps, canned foams, and sealants are usually not needed. Heating
and cooling equipment should be downsized 30-50%. The new tax credits
that are being made available for energy efficient upgrades can also
take the sting out of the upfront cost. If planning for an energy efficient
building is done early, the cost for the upgrade may indeed be lower
than traditional products.

people with allergies?
