Insulate Right and Tight the First Time!
First Congregations Church, Amherst, MA GC: DA Sullivan and Sons – Fall, 2017
Foam USA had another successful project with DA Sullivan & Sons, INC. We collaborated on the construction of an addition at the First Congregational Church in Amherst, MA. Project work-scopes included open cell spray foam on framed walls and closed cell foam on block step walls. In the ceiling flat 3″ closed cell was installed against the roof deck in order to achieve full vapor barrier control with remainder infilled with 8″ open cell. Total R = R53. One advantage with the use of the closed cell spray foam was it allowed for the tie-together of the original brick wall to the new concrete wall. A complete air barrier was established. If left to only to the mortar infill a continuous air barrier would not been achieved. Details matter.

“We have been renovating a very big, very old house in the Berkshires for three years. In all that time, we have dealt with no one more professional, capable, and courteous than Mark Lantz and his team from Foam USA and Cozy Home. The house was difficult to insulate because of its age and the way it was built, but Mark took time and used his impressive knowledge to develop the best approach, down to the smallest detail. His team was clearly experienced. They worked efficiently and thoroughly, and left the house remarkably clean–considering what a mess the spray foam is in general. I would recommend Foam USA and Cozy Home to anyone.”
