How to Keep Your Home Allergen-Free

Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? Is the high pollen count from Hampton Roads to Richmond keeping you up at night?

Not only does Atlantic Spray’s spray foam insulation help you save money on your energy bills, help strengthen your home’s building structure, and act as a sound barrier – it can help you keep pollen and other pollutants out of your home.

Fiberglass batts insulation, stapled into wall cavities, has been used for many years. Now, however, spray foam insulation has become the preferred application for homeowners who want a tight, durable seal against air and moisture filtration. Unlike fiberglass, it keeps outdoor allergens and pollutants where they belong, outside of your home.

So, as the seasons change and you or your family’s allergies begin to act up at home – remember we can help! Call us now for a free consultation at 757-566-4892.

Healing from hurricane Irene storm damage

Unless you strategically took a TV-less west coast vacation this past week, you’ve undoubtedly heard all about Hurricane Irene – first as a potential threat, and eventually as a wreaker of havoc on homes, power lines and travel of most any kind.

Now that Irene has passed, we are left with the ugly effects – water and wind damage, power outages, and in some cases – total destruction. At Atlantic Spray, we are here to help. Did Irene leave you with basement or crawl space damage? We’ll remove your old insulation and replace it with FEMA-approved spray foam – a great alternative to fiberglass. We are proud to be of service to the Hampton Roads and greater Richmond area in a time of need – so call now for your FREE consultation, and we’ll be on our way.

Prepare your home for hot summer weather

Let’s face it, it’s July – and things won’t be cooling down in the Hampton Roads area anytime soon! Learn how to be beat the heat, economically and efficiently with Atlantic Spray’s spray foam insulation.

Improving attic insulation, providing effective coverage for your windows, and controlling moisture in and around your house are all great ways to keep your home cool and comfortable this summer.

Making these three improvements allows you to maximize the output of your air conditioning while keeping your electric bills to a minimum. A vented attic can heat up to 130 degrees in the summer, causing your HVAC system to work much harder than necessary. Unwanted moisture can also form as the result of condensation. These problems can be solved when we apply spray foam insulation to the underside of the roof deck. As a result, the attic becomes a “conditioned” space that is as comfortable as any other room in your home.

And choosing spray insulation over traditional batt or fiberglass insulation will save you time, money, and energy. While the latter is only stapled or set into wall cavities, allowing air and moisture to pass through gaps – spray foam insulation adheres to walls and floors, creating a tight seal and barrier against air and moisture filtration.

Another sneaky source of overheating may be entering right through your windows. Awnings and solar screens maximize shade around your home.

So if you’re sick of suffering through the heat this summer, give us a call today at 757-566-4892 for your free estimate.
