While spray polyurethane foam’s (SPF) insulation and air sealing benefits are well known, many building owners may be unaware of its other properties that can help strengthen buildings and make them more durable.

Six months ago, Andy and Anitra Kitfield had their house insulated with Demilec USA’s sprayfoam insulation and had the experience documented by the television show, Designing Spaces: Think Green. The Kitfield’s home is a 1952 Cape Cod style home located in the heart of Virginia and was in dire need of additional insulation. When they were contacted by the team at Designing Spaces: Think Green, they eagerly jumped at the opportunity to increase their home’s energy efficiency with sprayfoam insulation from Demilec USA.
