Soy-Based spray foam insulation helps homeowners save money on heating and cooling costs while leaving a green footprint! BioBased® Insulation can help save building and homeowners up to 50% on heating and cooling costs when used with other responsible building products.

By becoming a BioBased® Insulation Certified Dealer, we can now offer an energy-efficient and environmentally responsible insulation alternative for our customers and network of builders.

Davis Timber Frame Company, a national timber frame and post and beam company with over 21 years of home design, building, and commercial experience has become a BioBased® Insulation Certified Dealer servicing the greater New England region.

In 2003 BioBased® Insulation introduced the first bio-based and water-blown spray foam insulation to be ICC-rated (ESR 1383). The company has continued to develop new and more sustainable insulation products that incorporate natural, renewable ingredients, such as Agrol® - a 96% pure bio-polyol - to replace a portion of the petroleum that's found in traditional spray foam insulations. BioBased® Insulation products are only available from a network of installers who have been trained in not only spray foam application but also building science.

"As a respected timber frame company, we've always taken pride in the quality and energy efficiency of our products," states Reid Greenberg, Director of Marketing at Davis Timber Frame Company. "By becoming a BioBased® Insulation Certified Dealer, we can now offer an energy-efficient and environmentally responsible insulation alternative for our customers and network of builders."

BioBased® Insulation's family of products are installed as a liquid that quickly expands, filling every crack and void and creating a sealed thermal envelope that drastically reduces air infiltration. When used with other responsible building products, homeowners can realize a savings of 40 to 50 percent on their heating and cooling bills. Because it utilizes an annually renewable resource, the polyurethane insulation also supports farmers and reduces our dependence on foreign oil.

BioBased® Insulation's current products include BioBased® 501, a .5 lb, open-cell spray foam; and BioBased® 1701, a closed-cell, 1.7 lb spray foam. Both products use water instead of ozone-depleting chemicals as the blowing agent during application. BioBased® 1701 is the first spray foam insulation to earn the stringent GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD for Children and SchoolsTM certifications for indoor air quality.

BioBased® Insulation has been recognized with national awards for its innovation and environmentally conscious approach. BioBased® 501 Insulation was named the 2003 Outstanding Green Product of the Year at the National Green Building Conference in Baltimore and was named one of 2003's Top 10 Green Products by the U.S. Green Building Council. Both products have been named one of the Top 100 Products by Building Products magazines.

The products also have generated buzz with national media outlets. HGTV's "Living with Ed" and DIY Network's "Cool Tool", CBS' "The Early Show," "Today's Homeowner with Danny Lipford," "Bob Villa," Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, Dallas Morning News, and other national news media have spotlighted BioBased® Insulation for its unique health, comfort and energy-efficient qualities.
