FOAMETIX polyurethane spray foam systems are perfect for attic insulation installation (insulating attic floors, rafters, etc.), insulating basements (such as with basement wall insulation), insulating a garage, and new additions/constructions for homes. We also insulate commercial and industrial buildings! Foametix Canada is based in Winnipeg, MB and we service Manitoba, Saskatchewan, NW Ontario, and Alberta.

Insulating Attic with spray foam insulation

Insulating attic floor (top of ceiling)

Warm air rises and so do your utility bills all winter long. If you notice any frost on the shingle nails poking through your attic roof deck, or see frost on the underside of your roof, you are losing big money! Natural updraft will cause any hole or cut in a ceiling vapour barrier to allow air to be sucked out of your home, and into the attic like a chimney. Even several small holes (ie. light receptacles, wiring holes, drywall screws) can add up to tremendous air loss.

Attic insulation installation with our insulating spray foam is a beneficial procedure that can prevent this air loss. Spraying the floor minimizes the surface area you spray, minimizes the amount of foam needed, and minimizes your utilities because you're only heating and cooling the area you live in. In other words, you're not paying to heat and cool the additional square footage in your attic that you don't use. If you have existing attic insulation, our spray foam installer will commence with insulation removal and then apply 2-3 inches of closed cell attic spray foam insulation. This attic insulation installation creates a seamless air barrier that makes your other insulation work MUCH better. Plus the total air/moisture seal and high R-value that Foametix polyurethane spray foam insulation provides, helps retain the energy inside your living space where you have paid to keep it saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars annually in utility bills by insulating attic.

Attic insulation installation with Foametix spray foam insulation is a great solution for any home but especially for older homes lacking a correct ceiling vapour barrier, or those homes with recessed lighting fixtures.

Insulating attic rafters (underside of roof deck)

If you're using the attic for living space or have a vaulted ceiling, then you want to use insulating spray foam on the underside of the roof for insulating attic. Older 1 ½ and 1 ¾ story houses commonly have this type of roof and were usually not insulated in the ceiling, or were insulated with a loose fill product that has long since settled to the bottom away from where it needs to be. These types of roofs in older homes were commonly lacking a vapour barrier of any kind!

During this application of attic insulation installation, the drywall or plaster of the ceiling needs to be completely removed in order to spray the foam into the cavity during. A less disruptive method is to remove the roof decking when shingling, which usually is required anyways on homes older than 1965. We would then commence with insulation removal that is left in the cavities and then spray down into the cavity prior to resheeting and shingling.

Finally, with attic insulation installation using polyurethane spray foam insulation, you're sealing off the attic fully to make it unvented. You'll want to reroute anything that needs to be vented outside, like a kitchen or bath exhaust fan that dumps into the attic. If space permits, adding fibreglass or Roxul batting after the foam cures will raise your R-value even more, while protecting these products from their usual moisture issues.


Insulating a garage with spray foam insulation

Insulating a garage: floors Over Garages and Cantilevers (bump outs)

Many houses have rooms built out over the garage or floor spaces that cantilever past the foundation. These areas can be very cold in the winter due to poor insulating materials, improper air-barrier and vapour seal. As a result of these problems these floor spaces are susceptible to moisture and mold, as well as rodent infestations. If you are interested in insulating a garage Foametix can insulate and seal these areas with 3 inches or R21 of polyurethane spray foam insulation, and also commence with insulation removal if necessary. This provides a complete air seal, a higher R-value and a continuous vapour barrier.


Insulating a new Addition with spray foam insulation

Whether you have a small or large project, FOAMETIX polyurethane spray foam insulation systems are the best way to insulate and protect your new addition/renovation. FOAMETIX spray foam insulation expands aggressively to fill all cracks and gaps in and between your structures while allowing insulating to be quick and easy for you, even in the trickiest places to insulate. No vapor barrier is required before drywall, and electrical and plumbing can be done before or after FOAMETIX products are applied. FOAMETIX polyurethane spray foam insulation also significantly increases the strength of your structure and will not mold or rot even in damp locations (ie. Bath and kitchen walls).


Insulating New Construction with spray foam insulation

Most Architects and Home Planners as well as many Building Inspectors are now specifying the use of polyurethane spray foam insulation on the rim/band joists throughout main and subsequent floors. This is due to the fact that this application by a trained spray foam installer is the one and only way to effectively insulate these areas. Our products seal out air movement, moisture and pests. Why not specify FOAMETIX polyurethane spray foam insulation throughout your new home. It will allow you to downsize your HVAC equipment, strengthen your structure, increase your resale value, energy conservation resulting in energy savings on your utility bills, and create a mold and dust free environment for you and your family. Our products protect your new home investment.


Insulating a Basement with spray foam insulation

Basement ceiling insulation, basement floor insulation & insulating Rim Joists/Band Joists/Joist Ends

Most penetrations into your home and a primary source of your homes air leakage comes through your joist cavities under your floor that lack basement ceiling insulation or basement floor insulation. These spaces are where the majority of your utilities come into your home and your house sits on an uneven cement foundation wall providing spaces for cold air to enter into your home. These areas are also a common entry point for pests and rodents. Foametix's basement ceiling insulation and basement floor insulation seals these areas completely providing a perfect seal, a continuous vapour barrier and the highest R-value. This system stops the majority of drafts into basements and energy loss between floors.

Basement Walls Insulation

Basements are cold due to the fact that most of the heat in basements is drawn out through the cement walls, into the ground, creating a continuous heat sink that draws the heat out of your home. These cold temperatures transfer to your upper floors causing your home to heat itself more often, costing you money in high energy bills. In the summer months, your concrete foundation walls leach moisture into your home, this increases your homes humidity level, causing your air conditioning to run excessively. With Basement Walls Insulation, combined with basement ceiling insulation and basement floor insulation properly applied by FOAMETIC, you can eliminate 95% of thermal transfer into your basement walls creating a comfortable environment, a complete vapour barrier, a healthier and dry mold free basement and energy conservation resulting in energy savings. Or if you already have traditional insulating materials in place we could commence with insulation removal and replace it with our more efficient product.

Vacuum Insulation Removal

Many homeowners need to replace loose fill or blown in insulation (cellulose, fibreglass, sawdust, wood shavings etc.) in their home in order to install new product while insulating a garage or for installing new basement ceiling insulation, basement floor insulation, etc. It's often removed from attics or other areas in order to easily and safely complete renovation or electrical work. Whether the existing product is outdated, fire or water damaged, contaminated by animal infestation, or covered with debris and dirt, we have the solution to get rid of it. Our can perform the insulation removal process using a high-powered engine driven vacuum, positioned outside the home, connected to the attic by a long high volume hose. A large volume filter bag is used to collect the insulation from the attic, outside the home. The negative pressure of the hose removing it from the attic minimizes any dust and debris inside the building. This process is not only efficient, but also keeps the home from being further contaminated by the insulation removal.
