Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation®
About Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation®
Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation® is a dry resin “foam-in-place” insulation product. It was designed specifically for the cores of concrete block walls and acts as insulation and tight air barrier.
At Poly-Lift, we offer competitively priced foam-in-place products that exceed the testing requirements of current standard building codes. Our injection foam insulation services completely fill cavities in cracks and gaps, ensuring your new (or old) building is effectively insulated for many years to come.
Unlike conventional insulation materials, such as fiberglass, injection foam doesn’t lose its shape, sag over time, or compress. Our goal is to keep your energy bills down and maximize the building’s comfort, all while making the most of your construction budget.
Energy-Efficient Insulation for Sustainable Construction
Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation® is considered to be more environmentally friendly than most insulation materials. It prevents large buildings from wasting energy and creates an unbeatable air-tight seal.
Today, it is used in many commercial and institutional builds, including retail box stores, churches, schools, and more. With this energy-efficient form of insulation, we can:
Skip the Mess of a Full Remodel
Is your new build already in the works? It’s not too late to switch to Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation®. Now’s the time to ensure your building will have maximum energy efficiency through an insulation material with a high R-value.
If cellulose or fiberglass insulation has already been added to the exterior walls, our team will remove the old materials to fill in injection foam insulation. What’s inside your wall matters. Let us prevent air from escaping, which can cause your building to be inefficient, unsafe, and uncomfortable.
Our Injection Foam Insulation Install Process
1. Remove a Strip of the Building’s Siding
The first step in Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation® installation is accessing your exterior walls. We’ll arrive at the construction site then remove the siding to access the inside of the walls.
2. Drill a Hole and Check for Obstructions
Once we have removed the siding, we will drill a hole into each stud cavity. After, we will assess the wall for any obstructions that could affect the new insulation materials.
3. Inject the Spray Foam Insulation
Our team will run the hose up to the top of the cavity and inject the Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation®. Once we hit the middle of the cavity, we will switch to running the hose from the bottom up. This helps us fill the cavity completely, allowing for airtight insulation.
4. Plug Holes and Clean Up
After the foam has been injected, we will plug any holes we drill and replace the removed siding. Then, we’ll clean up the installation area and ensure you’re left with a tidy, safe construction site.
FAQs About Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation®
Yes. Cells that are not grouted or reinforced along with small cracks and crevices can be filled with spray foam insulation. This will create an effective air barrier in the walls.
When installed by professionals, Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation® should last for 80 years or more. It is one of the most permanent long-term insulation solutions available today.
Spray foam insulation can shrink over time, but only if improperly installed. That’s why it’s important to hire a trained, experienced insulation team. Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation® should be installed under precise conditions to ensure it is effective and does not shrink or sag over the years.
Yes. Core Foam Masonry Foam Insulation® is safe to use in all buildings, including schools and daycares. You will not need to worry about toxins or potential health effects in humans or animals.
