Barrier to the Outside

Spray foam creates a barrier that stops mold, moisture, dust and critters from entering your home

How it Works

Closed-Cell Spray Foam

Not all spray foam is created equal. The two options on the market are open-cell and closed-cell. In the climate zone found through the upper midwest, closed-cell is the superior product. With closed-cell foam, the insulation is sprayed and molds itself to all surfaces before it becomes rigid and forms a barrier to the outside. This is an excellent way to seal out moisture, vapor, dust, critters and mold.

Due to the rigid characteristics of closed-cell foam, it provides additional structural integrity to your building and never settles like other types of insulation. We apply 2lb closed-cell foam to all interior surfaces. Exterior surfaces and roofing applications use 3lb closed-cell foam.

Turnaround time depends on the size of the project but most projects can be completed within 2 days.

Spray foam is typically installed after electric and plumbing has been roughed in and inspected. It is important to note that once spray foam is in place it can be difficult to access plumbing and electrical lines.

Celluslose insulation is made primarily of recycled paper products and blended with additives to ensure fire and insect resistance. Celluslose insulation is often found in attics and flat ceilings.

BIBS Insulation

BIBS (Blow-In-Blanket System) insulation is a variation of fiberglass insulation. It works well in settings needing soundproofing like interior walls. It offers a good insulating value but it does have the possibility of settling.


Fiberglass and blow in fiberglass insulation is one of the most common types of insulation found today. Although it does not offer many of the benefits of spray foam there are some applications where this can still be a good fit.

“We had Michael with Dakota Applicators, of Gettysburg, SD insulate our new home, along with two outbuildings. He did a great job, which can be attested to with the heat of last summer and the below freezing temps of this winter. The hours that the air handling unit operates per day is limited in number, thus the efficiency of the installation of the insulation is demonstrated daily. Michael, you did a great job and we thank you for all you did to make this a very positive experience.”
