Can SPF be used for other insulation purposes?

R&A SPF Insulation

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is an incredible commercial roofing solution, one that we at R&A Contracting are proud to install for so many of our customers. What many business owners don’t know is that SPF has many other insulation purposes besides commercial roofing. With a little creativity and attention to detail, your home or office can be far more energy-efficient in a few key areas:

Wall Insulation

A recent study by the National Insulation Association (NIA) shows that up to one-third of an HVAC’s energy production is lost through uninsulated walls. The liquid installation form of SPF is flexible enough to conform to the insides of previously installed walls and create an air-tight insulation shield to prevent further energy loss.

Duct Insulation

Hot water loses its temperature when it has to travel through uninsulated walls or pipes. The same is true for your HVAC system. SPF insulation can be strategically applied around specific parts of your system’s ductwork to create a more energy-efficient environment. SPF insulation can also seal off hairline leaks and larger, more obvious holes in your HVAC ductwork. An efficient HVAC system doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Save your system from overworking by applying SPF insulation.

Attics and Crawl Spaces

Energy retention is at its lowest point out of the attic and roof of any structural building. By spraying SPF throughout your attic or crawl space, you can create a natural envelope trapping precious energy back into your living space. This helps maintain a comfortable environment that isn’t affected by energy loss above your head.

If your energy bill is a nightmare to open, you need a more efficient solution. Call R&A Contracting today to find out how SPF insulation can protect your home or office from leaking energy and skyrocketing your energy bills. Our veteran service and installation teams are experts at keeping energy costs down through SPF insulation. We can help you stop spending and start saving with SPF today!

I’d be an idiot if I did not take this opportunity to communicate to you how much we appreciate the way in which you conduct business and take care of our facility. In my experience you, and your team, are at the top of the list of all the roofing companies I’ve dealt with over the years. Thank you!

Eric and crew were really nice to have around. They were courteous, careful and caused little if any disruption. Their work looks good too! To be honest… a good experience with a product that I initially had misgivings about. I’m a convert because of Bubba, Sam and Eric. Thank you.

“I want to thank the crew at R&A for a job well done on our very leaky roof at the shop. It is certainly nice to have the drips and rivers gone from the shop when it is raining. I also wanted you to know how much we appreciated that the guys were able to stay out of our way and allowed us to do business as usual without any problems or interruptions. The roof looks great and the clean-up after the job made it so we couldn’t even tell you’d been here. Thanks for doing what you do so well!”

Jay Moore, President of Safe Way Tire and Auto Center

“My wife and I were on vacation when water pipes burst in our house. We got a hold of Craig and the R&A crew was able to start evacuating the water immediately. The best part was that they were able to start work before we even returned home. It was a very fast turnaround considering the extensive amount of water damage.”

Will from Dardenne Prairie, MO

“Craig and Mike came out in a timely fashion when we needed the work done. They did a reliable and quality job.”

Jerry from SLR Properties

“Craig helped us out tremendously with the insurance process. Timely and very professional.”

Lindell from Greater Missouri Builders (GMB)

“We purchased a house and there was some damage to the roof. Very impressed with the thoroughness of Mike’s inspection. Very comfortable with their explanation of what needed to be fixed. Most impressive was the way they protected our landscaping. Really liked the way they treated me as a valued customer, even though it was only a small project.”

Ross from Troy, MO

“I use R&A Contracting when my commercial roofs receive storm damage. They work on our behalf through every step of the insurance claim process. They perform all of the work and complete the insurance process, making our roofs better than they were before the storm.”

Director of Facilities for a large Property Management Company

“The team at R & A Contracting responded immediately when notified of our water disaster. They removed water-damaged materials and property quickly and restored our home even before the final settlement from our insurance company. They minimized how long our family had to live in a hotel and got us back to normal as fast as possible.”
