Lapolla Spray Foam Used in Extreme Home Makeover


Knez Building Materials believes that when it’s time to makeover your home, you might want to consider companies such as Bayer and Demilec for your Spray Foam needs. Using a spray polyurethane foam is one of the best ways to keep your home insulted. That’s what ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition did for the Hill Family home in Ottawa, Kansas in November 2011. ABC producers called on another great manufacturer, Lapolla Spray Foam, to help the Hill Family save on energy costs and reduce noise pollution.

A better insulated home saves on energy costs, reducing energy consumption. One reason for costly home energy bills is poor insulation. When a home lacks proper insulation, it loses more energy than it can keep.

Air infiltration is often the culprit of home energy loss. Poorly sealed windows, doors, and air ducts allow outside air in and inside air out. The home’s heating system has to work harder and longer to keep the home warm in the winter. The roles reverse in the summer when the cooling system kicks into high gear. This was one problem Lapolla helped the Hill Family fix in their extreme home makeover.

The second problem the Hill Family wanted to address was noise pollution. Spray foam also acts as a sound barrier. The spray foam blocks unwanted noise from coming in, such as the roar of passing cars and delivery trucks and the outbursts of playing children and barking dogs.

For ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Lapolla used its AirTight Open Cell Foam in the Hill Family home. Lapolla’s AirTight Open Cell Foam is malleable foam that can be worked into tight spaces. Because this foam goes on in liquid foam, it expands more than a hundred times its volume, growing into the tightest nooks and crannies and sealing the home. For the Hill Family, this contributed to savings on energy costs and made their home more comfortable.
