This is why you must be sure you have a competent company do your work. Without a separate fire ignition barrier, or better yet, one built into the foam itself, like we use, you could have a disaster waiting to happen.
New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Though most spray foam contractors are neither licensed by the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors nor certified by the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance, Corey Yates of Sunlight Contractors has gathered an exhaustive collection of certifications that require arduous training and testing. His most recent accomplishment, the SPFA Roofing Installer certification, secures Sunlight's position as the most licensed Louisiana spray foam installers in Louisiana.
Sunlight Contractors has long been a reliable source of energy efficient insulation for Louisiana homeowners, but this most recent certification also provides local businesses with a safe, energy efficient roofing alternative. Spray foam roofing, one of the longest lasting roofing options, not only increases the comfort of a commercial structure, it reduces utility costs and provides protection from strong winds and inclement weather.
The installation of spray foam insulation, however, whether on the roof of a commercial structure or in a home, requires precision in order to be both effective and safe. Improper curing of spray foam causes any number of problems for businesses and homeowners: from foul odors to health risks. Temperature and humidity fluctuations, improper workplace practices, and the poor installation techniques of unseasoned contractors all contribute to curing problems. However, faulty curing isn’t the only threat posed by unlicensed contractors.
One Metairie homeowner at the recent Pontchartrain Home Show related her experience after hiring a spray foam contractor with no SPFA certification to insulate her home. After finishing the installation, the contractor carelessly disposed of excess insulation by burning it on the homeowners’ lot. The homeowner was shocked to witness the insulation used to fill her home burn so easily and so quickly.
“This is why you must be sure you have a competent company do your work. Without a separate fire ignition barrier, or better yet, one built into the foam itself, like we use, you could have a disaster waiting to happen,” says Yates.
If the company isn’t licensed by the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors and certified by the Spray Polyurethane Foam Association, customers often find themselves dissatisfied with no recourse. To ensure the best results, homeowners as well as business owners should hire a team of contractors who have taken the time to train and be assessed by their professional associations.
