Spray Foam

spray foam

Improve the comfort and reduce the energy usage of your home today. Spray foam insulation offers up to 50% energy savings over conventional insulation products. Spray foams act as both a thermal insulation and air barrier material. Once installed, spray foams maintain its R value and do not shrink, sag or settle. Spray foams are ideal for those hard to seal areas, limiting air leakage.

Spray foam is one of the longest-lasting insulation materials on the market today, offering higher R values than other materials. It is applied as a foamy liquid that seeps into the smallest nooks and crannies in the wall, sealing it tightly. As soon as the spray foam sets, it creates a solid, airtight barrier.

At Jerry’s Insulating we only install the highest quality spray foam insulation materials. The two options we offer our clients include; 2 lb. closed cell medium-density insulation and a 1/2lb open cell low density foam insulation.

2 lb. Density Polyurethane Foam

Benefits of Polyurethane:

  • Polyurethane spray foam provides the highest possible R-Value per inch, making it an effective solution for meeting building code requirements in all spaces.
  • Polyurethane spray foam should not require the use of vapour barriers as it is a closed cell product blocking moisture as well as air from entering into your home. (Check with your local building inspector).
  • Polyurethane spray foam is a closed cell insulation that restricts moisture flow and is ideal to turn your cold damp basement into a comfortable living space.
  • Creates an airtight envelope around any structure, by filling in all small spaces, corners and angles resulting in a tight seal that prevents any unwanted drafts.

1/2 lb. Low-Density Spray Foam

Benefits of Low-Density Spray Foam:

  • 100% water-blown and contains no HFC’s, thereby emitting no harmful gases once cured.
  • Contains no ozone-depleting substances and does not off-gas over time.
  • Creates a continuous air barrier restricting the flow of outdoor allergens and pollutants.
  • Significantly reduces unwanted noise pollution that can invade living spaces, creating a more enjoyable indoor environment.
  • Contains no PBDE’s, a flame retardant.

The choice of product is made on the R value required, the cavity depth, location of application and vapour barrier requirements.

Blown Insulation

blown insulation

Blow insulation is a fast, easy and cost-effective way to save money and significantly reduce your growing energy bill. Blown insulation can be installed in your home’s attic and exterior walls. Upgrading your home’s insulation limits heat flow and reduces noise, keeping your home comfortable year round.

Fast and Simple Process

Installing blown insulation is a quick and simple process. Attics are typically accessed through the attic hatch. Attic insulation is installed using specialized equipment and is installed through a corrugated hose.

Energy Efficient and Cost Effective

Blown insulation is one of the most energy efficient types of insulation available in the market today. It is blown into attics or into empty stud wall cavities, expanding to fill up the tiniest cracks. This method reduces heat flow, air flow and improves noise transmission, reducing your energy bill by up to 50%.


Increasing the amount of insulation in your attic is one of the easiest ways to increase the comfort and energy efficiency of your home. New blown insulation can be added on top of any existing insulation. If your existing attic insulation thickness is 12 inches or less, we recommend increasing your attic insulation to R50 or greater.

Our trained installers will upgrade your attic and install soffit ventilation as required, while ensuring minimal inconvenience to the homeowner. Proper attic ventilation is important to prevent growth of mould and mildew.

If your attic insulation has been exposed to excessive moisture, or contaminated with debris, you may want to remove the existing insulation prior to installing new material. Any roof repairs should also be completed before upgrading your attic to prevent future water damage and potential mould growth.


Many homes built prior to 1960 have little or no insulation in the exterior walls. Adding insulation to your exterior walls and attic can reduce your home's energy costs by up to 50%.

Fiberglass can be blown into the exterior walls providing R14 for 2×4 construction. The insulation is blown into the exterior walls thru 1″ holes drilled into the exterior walls. Our trained installers use a vacuum system while drilling to minimize dust.

Batting Insulation

We have been installing fiberglass batt insulation for half a century. Batting is typically installed in new construction or retrofit application where existing drywall/plaster has been removed.

Benefits of Fiberglass Batting

  • Batting insulation provides an economical way to reduce your home’s energy costs.
  • Fiberglass batting is available in various thicknesses (“R” values) suitable for exterior walls, cathedral ceilings, and attic spaces.
  • Fiberglass batting requires an air barrier and vapor barrier to maximize its R value. All electrical outlets, windows, doors are taped or caulked to provide a continuous vapor barrier.

Installing Batting Insulation

While batt insulation seems easy to install, it takes a professional to do it right. Unless you are a DIY handyman with years of experience, installing fiberglass batting is not as easy as it may seem. Unprofessional installation may leave lots of gaps and over compressed batts, which will admit drafts and heat leaks from, and into, your home. Poorly installed batt insulation will sag and settle over time, under its own weight, creating gaps in your insulation. Poorly installed DIY batting insulation may save you a few dollars now, but will cost you thousands of dollars in heating & cooling costs down the road.

Properly installed batt insulation can give you peace of mind, reduce your energy costs and be easy to replace down the road. If you have a problem with the existing insulation and need it removed prior to installing new insulation, no problem – we can do this for you as well.

Still undecided? The type of insulation you need depends on the type of house you live in, the climate that you are located in and other factors. Keep in mind that batt insulation can be supplemented by other types of insulation to achieve the best effect. If you are undecided on what kind of insulation will fit your home best, call us now, and we will help you find the best solution.
