Spray insulation now offered locally

With oil prices rising and the consequent rise in energy costs, homeowners are looking to alternatives in order to conserve as much energy and therefore as much money as they can.
True Line Construction out of Emo, Ont. has responded to this demand, recently purchasing a piece of equipment called a spray foam rig and opening up a new division of their company to house this service.
Spray foam is a type of insulation that coats the area in liquid form and then expands to an approximate two-inch thickness. The insulating product seeps into the holes and seals off the entire surface to provide unprecedented coverage and leak resistance.
This provides a very energy-efficient insulating product, effectively protecting the homeowner from paying for heating the outdoors.
Prior to their purchase, local people who wanted spray foam insulation had to contract workers from Winnipeg to come here to do the job which resulted in higher costs for project completion.
However, the opening of True Line Construction’s division makes obtaining spray foam insulation that much easier and less costly.
The spray foam is not a new technology; rather it has been around for approximately 35 years. However, its newfound popularity among eco-friendly homeowners has made for its re-emergence in the market.
This same technology is used on popular home improvement show, “Holmes and Homes,” and True Line Construction Ltd. is proud to tout such standards in the community.
Jack Napora, Equipment and Parts Manager of Waterloo, Ontario’s Polyurethane Foam Systems Inc., visited the Fort Frances area recently so he could teach the method and safety procedures to Richard and Gerald Wieringa of True Line Construction.
Napora noted that across Canada there are now at least 200 men who are certified to do spray foam insulation, which is even further indication of the demand for this product and its altogether success.
The product boasts such positive characteristics as being environmentally-friendly in production, ozone-friendly, and made entirely from recycled plastic bottles, vegetable oil, and Soya.
It provides a complete vapour barrier, high long-term thermal resistance, and an air barrier that exceeds the National Building Code of Canada Standards.
Napora conceded that the installation of this product does cost about double what you would pay for average insulation. However, he insisted that with a product like this, “You get what you pay for,” and that in two or three years, the homeowner can expect to see the entire project pay for itself in energy savings alone.
Richard Wieringa spent this past weekend spraying the roof of local business, Piston Ring Service: Automobile Parts and Supplies, to help them out with their energy savings.
It is believed that since hot air rises and escapes, it takes much more energy to reheat the air inside—so the roof is the best place to start. Once the roof is insulated, the rising air can’t escape and the savings will begin immediately.
Napora claimed that just by doing your roof alone you can save 60 percent on your heating bill.
The Canadian Urethane Foam Contractors Association (CUFKA) regulates all of the standards according to the building code. True Line Construction is a member of CUFKA and guarantee that they will provide that most professional service for all customers in the district.
Further, the customers are ensured that they are backed by the protections of the CUFKA in all of the contracted work that they receive.
