There are many benefits to Retrofoam insulation Illinois
Learn more about the benefits of Retrofoam insulation Illinois below:
RetroFoam’s R-value (R-value measures insulation effectiveness) reaches a remarkable R-4.6 per inch in winter and R-4.1 per inch in summer. This is the highest annual R-value of any re-insulation option on the market today.
RetroFoam™ provides homes with 2×4 studs R-values of R-16.0 and R-14.9 for winter and summer, respectively. R-values for homes with 2×6 studs reach R-23.7.
RetroFoam™ also eliminates drafts by sealing plugs, switches, cracks, and anywhere else air can enter or leave your home.
Continues to save money over time.
Unlike blown-in cellulose or fiberglass, RetroFoam™ will not settle over time, change shape, or breakdown. Your RetroFoam™ insulation stays in place, particularly at the top of walls where it is most needed. And RetroFoam™ is not affected by moisture. If the foam gets damp, it always dries and remains 100% effective.
Therefore, the high R-values and insulation effectiveness achieved by RetroFoam™ continue over time.
RetroFoam™ is also an effective pest barrier. Because it seals cracks and crevices in walls and cement blocks, it helps keep critters outside.
Does not disrupt your life when installed
RetroFoam™ installation is an easy process in most types of buildings, typically completed in less than a day. Our installers inject RetroFoam™ into the wall cavity, so there’s no need to tear out walls. Since RetroFoam™ is installed from the outside in most cases, you do not need to move furniture or clean up the inside of your home.
Decreases noise: a sound solution

RetroFoam™ reduces noise levels by 75%, a 45-50 db reduction on average. Apartment and condominium residents find RetroFoam™ a great solution for noisy walls.
