Whether you are constructing a new building or renovating an existing dwelling, insulation is one of the most important factors to consider. Insulation is designed to protect the building from outside temperatures and weather conditions and help regulate the indoor temperatures. The right type of insulation can greatly improve the functionality of the building and at the same time provide for reduced utility costs.
Insulation can keep the inside of the building warm in the winter and cool in the summer. There are many different types insulation to pick from when choosing building materials. Foam manufacturers offer high quality, durable insulation that will stand the test of time.
Choosing Foam Insulation
Insulation materials have come a long way in the last decades. Insulation is rated using R-values. The R-value of a particular insulation will give you an idea of the material’s ability to insulate the building from outside temperatures. Foam manufacturers provide a variety of insulation products that have R-values to meet your particular needs. The R-value you require for your building is based on standards for the climate in the area where you live.
Star-R-Foam is one of the leading foam manufacturers and offers a wide selection of foam insulation products. Products include EPS blocks, roof products, wall application, GEO form and specialty foam. Each of the foam products is made in the United States at one of our three locations.
