Spray Foam Project

We recently completed a spray foam job on a home for a gentleman and his wife located in Desoto Parish.   I only dealt with the husband and let me say, what a wonderful person he is.  When he came into our office, he had already done his homework on spray foam.  He even schooled me on a few things.  There is one thing he taught me to do in my own home I never knew to do, and to this day…I do it.  We spent approximately two hours visiting about foam and getting aquainted with each other as homeowner and sub-contractor.  He knew what he wanted regarding spray foam insulation and we made sure it was provided for him.  He is getting all of his “boy rooms” in this house….ex: theatre room, his own mud room, his office….a drain in the center of the garage floor to wash his cars, I would say he is spoiled!!!…..but he deserves it!!!….He is building a beautiful home and I can’t wait to see it finished. Now, I am waiting for an invite to fish in his private pond he will have (another one of his boy toys).  Better get my fishing pole and tackle box ready!!!

Cloverdale Plaza Apartments Bossier City, LA

We have been working on a huge project for several months with a company named BESCO out of Knoxville, TN.  They are renovated the Cloverdale Plaza Apartments located in Bossier City, LA and we have been insulating them as they get the units completed.  They have been moving right along on them , so for the past few days we have been blowing insulation in the attics so BESCO can get the tenants back in their homes.  They have been a great group to work with.  This will help the tenants on the utility bills.  Always a plus when you can cut costs on your utility bills!!!

One area of our business that is increasing is from homeowners looking for replacement windows. There is a lot of concern about the environment, and people are looking to conserve energy to address that concern. There is also the benefit of saving money. This link has some good information about how to select windows for a home improvement upgrade.

Also you may be interested about the importance of air sealing. You can reduce your home’s heating and cooling costs through proper insulation and air sealing techniques. These techniques will also make your home more comfortable. Proper moisture control and ventilation strategies will improve the effectiveness of air sealing and insulation, and vice versa.

There are four factors that determine your energy efficiency:

  • Air sealing
  • Insulation
  • Moisture control
  • Ventilation

A proper balance between all of these elements will also result in a more comfortable, healthier home environment. Learn more about these four factors here.
