WHAT IS SPRAY FOAM?
Spray foam is rapidly expanding insulating foam that is sprayed out of a pressurized gun (Like a power washer). It is many times stronger than traditional insulation or blow-in foam.
HOW DOES SPRAY FOAM WORK?
Spray Foam is a mixture of 2 different liquid compounds. These two compounds are stored in separate steel drums on our mobile spraying rigs. We keep the drums at a toasty warm temperature to ensure maximum material efficiency for our sake, and our customers. While it comes time to spray, we connect our two different drums to a generator, which in turn heats up the compounds and forces it through our spray gun. This new foam expands rapidly, like four times its initial size in under 5 seconds. Less than 5 minutes later the foam will have solidified to a near rock-like state and the sprayed area will be fully insulated.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
We are equipped with certified employees and a state-of-the-art mobile spraying platform that are entirely self-sufficient. We will come to your home and perform a comprehensive estimate on what type of product you expect and need. Following that our entire spraying process will take only a few days.
WHY FOAM OVER TRADITIONAL METHODS?
Simple. Vastly superior insulation will save you thousands of dollars on your heating bills in New England, not to mention tax breaks. In addition, spray foam doubles as a structural enhancer, actually increasing the stability of wherever it is sprayed. Spray foam blocks airflow to key portions of houses, decreasing chances of fire spreading through walls.
HOW DIFFICULT IS SPRAY FOAM?
Spray foam is easier to install than traditional foam. Spray foam is all about prep, and after that nothing but smooth sailing… Boston foam has a fully certified mobile spraying platform that handles all of our needs on site, allowing us maximum efficiency in our spray, and time.
HOW DID WE GET STARTED?
Dave Seymour, Founder of CityLight Homes (A&E’s Flipping Boston) and Todd Donaldson, his favorite and trusted contractor, took a good hard look at the energy and heating prices in New England. What they discovered was that one of the most volatile and unpredictable regions of our country had made very little technological progress in the past 70 years! And yet, the means to solve these problems were already amongst us, yet few people willing to act. That is how Boston Foam came to be. We believe that people deserve to insulate their homes in a modern, practical, and energy efficient way. Our mission is to deliver our beliefs to our New England customers, and neighbors.
