Proudly Serving the Midwest since 1979
Washington Roofing & Insulation, Inc. is an ABAA (Air Barrier Association of America) certified contractor and employs certified applicators.
Air barrier systems are composed of a number of materials, which are assembled together to provide a complete barrier to air leakage through the building enclosure.
This system essentially wraps the building shell and ensures that it protects the building from the effects of air leakage. Air leakage can have detrimental effects on how a building functions and reduces the lifespan of a building.

Using spray foam insulation will completely seal cracks and crevices; helps to save on utilities; provides you with a cleaner, higher quality air environment; and is environmentally friendly.
In our air barrier and insulation applications, we use closed-cell foam. The difference between a closed-cell foam versus an open-cell foam is that in open-cell foam, the tiny cells of the foam fill up with air, making it weaker and softer to the touch, while closed-cell foam cells pack together and are filled with a gas that forces the foam to rise and expand, thus providing better insulation.
Closed cell spray foam provides an R-value of 6.7 per inch and has a density of 2.0 lbs per cubic foot, making it a great choice for your insulation and air barrier needs.
In Washington Roofing & Insulation, we use closed-cell foam for Air Barrier and Insulation applications. The closed-cell foam is stronger, creates a better "R" value, and has a better resistance to the leakage of air and water vapor.
Spray foam prevents air, moisture, and gas infiltration. Studies have shown that as much as 40% of a building's total energy loss is due to air infiltration. Spray foam not only adheres to, but also forms to the walls to create a tight seal within the wall cavity as well as the connections between the floor, wall, and roof.
Because spray foam provides a seamless layer of insulation, much like it also does on the roofing system, it prevents moisture infiltration which is the leading source of dangerous mildew and mold growth. This means that un-conditioned air cannot seep in from the outside bringing moisture, spores, pollen, and other environmental pollution.
Spray foam seals cracks and crevices and helps to insulate those hard to reach areas. Many areas in building construction are difficult to insulate, and therefore cellulose is used. However, cellulose tends to settle. Due to spray foam's rigid form, it will not settle, and it also adds to the overall structural strength of your building.
The spray foam system also seals and reduces the temperature differences between the outside and inside wall - preventing convection currents of air from looping up and down in the walls.
These features of spray foam will also help your mechanical systems to be properly sized rather than having to compensate for the air leakage by "over-sizing" the equipment.
BASF closed-cell spray foam provides an "R" value of 6.7 per inch and has a density of 2.0 lbs per cubic foot, making it a great choice for your insulation and air barrier needs.
