Saint Bernard Spray Foam Insulation and Roofing
Saint Bernard Parish, first settled by Spanish colonists in 1778, is sometimes called “New Orleans’ most historic neighbor.” Located just five miles from downtown New Orleans, Saint Bernard boasts numerous waterways (such as Lake Borgne, the Mississippi River, and Breton Sound) that make it a playground for fishing, hunting and bird-watching enthusiasts.
The parish comprises numerous small islands, and has a higher percentage of its territory in water than any other parish in the state. As 2009’s Katrina demonstrated, this makes the area highly susceptible to damage from hurricanes and storms. The area’s hot, humid summers also contribute to Saint Bernard residents’ risk for water and moisture damage. The good news is that investing in spray foam insulation for attics, walls, crawl spaces, and roofs can protect Saint Bernard’s homes and businesses against much of the damage associated with inclement weather and excessive moisture.
Spray Foam Insulation for Saint Bernard Homes
Saint Bernard residents all share a particular need for moisture control. The geography of the parish, combined with high humidity and rainfall levels year-round, means that the earth beneath homes stays wet. This increases the likelihood of moisture damage to unprotected sub-flooring. Regardless of the age of a home, such moisture buildup can result in mildew, mold, and rot.
Closed cell spray foam beneath homes prevents such issues by sealing out moisture and sealing airflow. When conditioned air remains in the home and unconditioned air is unable to infiltrate through flooring’s cracks and crevices, the result is an overall healthier home. Residents not only enjoy protection against airborne allergens, but they also benefit from reduced monthly utility costs, since air doesn’t have to be continuously heated or cooled.
Open cell spray foam can be applied to attics and walls as well. This enhances airflow control and prevents mold, mildew, and even insects from invading Saint Bernard homes It also helps homeowners maintain consistent year-round temperatures while avoiding excessive use of heating and cooling units.
Spray Foam Roofing for Saint Bernard Businesses
Businesses in Saint Bernard benefit similarly from spray foam insulation applied to ceilings and walls. Just as it does in residences, spray foam increases efficiency in commercial buildings, increasing comfort while lowering monthly utility bills.
A green, energy efficient alternative to traditional roofing materials, spray foam roofing can be applied directly over most existing roofing substrates. Because there’s no need to remove and replace roofs, such application saves both time and money. Furthermore, once installed, a spray foamed roof can last for up to half a century and requires minimal upkeep. With their firm grip and rigid texture, spray foam roofs preserve structural integrity and strengthen commercial buildings. They resist both water and air leaks, and hold up to strong winds.
In addition, spray foamed roofs can help Saint Bernard businesses maintain consistent temperatures throughout buildings. Their staff members and clients will be more comfortable, and their budget will remain intact.
