Most common questions related to intumescent coating

What is the purpose of an intumescent coating?

The primary purpose of an intumescent coating is to provide passive fire protection for buildings and structures. This type of coating swells when exposed to high temperatures, forming a protective char layer that insulates the material beneath from the effects of fire. This increases the structural integrity of the building during a fire, providing crucial time for evacuation and fire-fighting efforts.

What is the purpose of an intumescent coating?

Intumescent materials are typically made from a combination of chemicals that react under intense heat. Common components include ammonium polyphosphate, pentaerythritol, melamine, and boric acid. These substances are integrated into a binding agent that can be applied to surfaces like a paint or coating.

What is intumescent coating a good solution for?

Intumescent coating is an excellent solution for enhancing fire resistance in both new constructions and renovations. It is particularly effective on structural steel elements, wood, and plasterboard, making it ideal for commercial buildings, public spaces, and residential areas that require added fire protection without compromising the aesthetic or structural integrity.

Common FAQs About Insulation Services

How often does insulation need to be replaced?

Insulation typically lasts 10 to 15 years, but it requires regular checks for optimal performance. The exact lifespan depends on the insulation type, quality, and your home conditions.

Will insulation installation save me money on energy bills?

Yes, correct insulation can reduce energy bills by making your home more energy-efficient. The savings depend on the insulation type, amount, your local climate, and your HVAC system’s efficiency. The EPA suggests that insulation and air sealing can cut home energy costs by about 15%.

What insulation types does Foam Co offer?

Foam Co provides a comprehensive range of insulation types, including Batt Roll Insulation, Dense Pack Insulation, Blow-In Insulation, and Spray Foam Insulation. You can find more details on each type on our Product page.

How do I choose the right insulation type for my home?

The choice depends on the space you’re insulating. Code for many Zone 4 climates recommends at least R-13 in walls and R-38 in the attic. However, adding air sealing and increasing the R-Value can offer better value. To make the best decision, consider scheduling a free home health visit with us.

How does insulation work?

Insulation works by slowing the flow of heat, which naturally moves from warmer to cooler areas. By reducing heat flow, your heating or cooling systems work less, maintaining desired temperatures more efficiently and saving you money.

How long will insulation installation take?

Generally, insulation installation is completed in one day, but the timeline can vary based on the size of the space being insulated. Be sure to contact us at 314.463.0888 to describe the size of your home and the space that you would like to address and we can schedule a complimentary consultation to fully educate you on the process.

What is the average cost of your service?

How do I know if my insulation should be replaced?
