SLOWS THE SPREAD OF FIRE
RetroFoam™ is a nonflammable product. RetroFoam™ adds safety and value to your home because fires burn more slowly through RetroFoam™-filled walls.
Our RetroFoam installation was a few years ago. We had a great experience…and noticed a drop in heating, cooling costs and noise. Recently we had an in-wall electrical fire and our RetroFoam insulation evidently smothered the fire before it had the chance to spread very far. With early detection, a terrific fire-fighting group and RetroFoam fire retardant insulation buying precious time, we didn’t lose our entire home. We only had to replace three stud widths of our wall. ~ Doug Frank (Cedar Rapids, IA)
SAVES YOU MONEY CONSISTENTLY OVER TIME
Unlike blown-in cellulose or fiberglass, RetroFoam™ will not settle over time, change shape, or breakdown. Your RetroFoam™ insulation stays in place, particularly at the top of walls where it is most needed. And RetroFoam™ is not affected by moisture. If the foam gets damp, it always dries and remains 100% effective.
Therefore, the high R-values and insulation effectiveness achieved by RetroFoam™ continue over time.
KEEPS PESTS OUT, UTILITY DOLLARS IN
Asian Beetles? Spiders? Mice? RetroFoam™ is an effective pest barrier. Because it seals cracks and crevices in walls and cement blocks, it helps seal pests OUT and seal IN your energy dollars.
