In 2006, Innovative Insulation Solutions Ltd. won the SPFA Industry Excellence Award in the Residential Wall Foam Category. The project was a four-story home in Evanston built in the late 1800s. Jim Blake, the homeowner, wanted the best insulation available in today’s market, therefore choosing Spray Foam Insulation. This project was a total gut/rehab of the building; all four floors were being re-built. The third floor of the home was all cathedral ceilings. A mixture of open cell and closed cell SPF was used. Closed Cell was used on all exterior walls and cathedral ceilings on the third floor. Open cell was used on the basement, first and second floor ceilings and all interior walls. The homeowner made the right choice using SPF insulation because of its superiority over all other insulation.
