The Columbia River Gorge has 75 waterfalls, 300 species of wildflowers and lots and lots of windy days. To prevent drafts in your gorge home, you need insulation that blocks holes and cracks.
Properly applied spray-foam insulation prevents air leakage better than other types of insulation. Because the foam is spray-applied, it works its way into small cracks and crevices. Batting insulation can’t do that and isn’t as effective at blocking drafts.
Summer Breezes Turn to Winter Freezes
Summer vacationers to the gorge often decide to make a home in one of the small towns along the river. They fall in love with the rugged beauty along the Washington or Oregon sides of the gorge. Atmospheric pressure differences make the gorge a wind tunnel. The weather gives the area world-class windsurfing. It also frustrates homeowners. It can take living through a cold winter in a windy climate to discover the draftiness of a house. Whether you need to insulate an existing structure or you’re building a new house, spray-foam insulation keeps cold east winds from entering your home.
Seal Drafts in Columbia River Gorge Homes with Spray Foam
Spray foam prevents drafts in two ways: it insulates and seals air leaks. Spray foam forms a continuous, unbroken layer of insulation. It conforms to contours, corners, and cathedral-shaped ceilings. The product doesn’t require fasteners that can create air leaks in boards, beams or rafters. The foam fills the often invisible leaks that compromise a home’s energy efficiency. One of our products can resist water, mold, and pests. Your home’s barrier won’t be damaged by other gorge mainstays such as rain and rodents. Wildlife won’t nest in spray foam and water won’t leak through it.
Hire an Experienced Team
Some homeowners in the gorge have chosen spray foam in the past and been frustrated. Inexperienced contractors don’t always have the skills or knowledge for proper application. Spray-On Foam has been in business since 1973. Our technicians have years of experience in the application of our products. We understand how to seal and insulate homes in the unique climatic conditions of the Pacific Northwest. Spray-foam insulation must be mixed before it’s applied. When done correctly, the foam will expand on the application forming a tight seal. Spray-foam insulation’s effectiveness depends on skillful application. Our installers are meticulous. They take the time to get the job done right, covering the gaps and holes in your home.
