Icynene – Grand Designs Tree House Project

 

Grand Designs Channel 4

We at Home Logic are the UK’s leading supplier of the Icynene Insulation system with a record number of over 1500 UK Icynene installs and a solid reputation backed up by our customers through on-line review platforms such as Trustpilot.

Insulations such as fibreglass would render a job such as the Dursley Tree House in Gloucestershire difficult to insulate in comparison to Icynene. This is because Icynene expands to over 100 times its size and is able to fill any air leakage points providing your home with an effective and secure building envelope...

Benefits of the Icynene Insulation System

Icynene has a whole range of benefits which not only benefit you as a home-owner, but also the structure of your property and the environment. By investing in Icynene you can benefit from:

  • Saving money –By creating an effective air seal in your property Icynene prevents from heat loss. This makes it cheaper to heat your home in the winter and easier to cool your home in the summer.
  • Preventing air pollution – Icynene improves indoor air quality by preventing any airborne irritants from entering your property such as traffic fumes.
  • Increase Comfort – By having an airtight home you will find your home is more comfortable. Draughts, cold spots and heat spots will become a thing of the past as an even temperature is distributed throughout your home.
  • Structural Integrity – Turn your property into a real Grand Design. Icynene spray foam insulation can help support the overall structure of your property. This is dependent on the application and thickness of the spray foam installation. It can also be sprayed around electrical cables and other fixtures without affecting the performance. The only cables you cannot spray Icynene around are shower cables and cooker cables.
  • Compatible with Your Roof – Unlike other spray foam insulations Icynene is applied onto a breathable membrane situated between the Icynene insulation and your roof. This allows you to carry and add additional upgrades to your home including re-roofing.
  • Reclaimable Loft – Current guidelines recommend up to 10 inches’  of insulation in your loft. This is usually added to the ground, rather than the roofline, which results in the loss of your storage area, due to not being able to refit floor boards after installation. By implementing Icynene spray foam insulation to the roof line, you regain the lost 10 inches, thus increasing storage, height and practicality.
  • Peace of Mind – Home Logic provides a lifetime Icynene warranty with its product for your peace of mind.

In unconventional designs such as tree houses, shipping containers, boats and vans it also creates the ultimate airtightness. When using fibreglass, celotex or other insulations you have to cut to exact measurements whereas with Icynene it expands so you save yourself the hassle

Where Can Icynene be Applied?

As you will see in our upcoming premier on Channel 4’s Grand Designs Icynene is suitable for the most unconventional of building designs, including tree houses. In residential construction and upgrades Icynene is mainly applied to attics, under floors and into cavity walls.

In unconventional designs such as tree houses, shipping containers, boats and vans it also creates the ultimate airtightness. When using fibreglass, celotex or other insulations you have to cut to exact measurements whereas with Icynene it expands so you save yourself the hassle. Also the practicality of a membrane situated between the Icynene and roof rafters allow your property to breathe and be available for further alterations including tile changing or window access.

Icynene is Eco Friendly

Water blown and with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of the lowest achievable, Icynene has been certified as an eco-friendly insulation which provides minimum disruption to the environment. Icynene is derived from an organic petroleum extract. Our spray foam insulation benefits the environment even further.

Icynene has the environment at the forefront of its business ethos and is striving to make its spray foam insulation products more and more energy efficient. Independent testing from Saskatchewan Research Council has revealed that there are no VOC emissions after 30 days from application which helps prove further that Icynene does not offset any chemicals or deteriorate over time.

Certifications

Icynene Insulation has received approval from the BBA for roofs, walls and floors. It has also received certification from ETA, IAB.

About Grand Designs

Kevin McCloud is the presenter and writer of Grand Designs, a show on Channel 4 which showcases ambitious home owners aspirations to transform family homes into beautiful projects. Mr McCloud was first spotted in the town by an eagle eyed resident, so reports Gloucestershire Live.

Although no confirmation was given by Channel 4 of the upcoming Grand Designs show rumours were circulating with Dursley Resident John Wilkes stating : “I know Kevin McCloud by sight and it was definitely him. He was with another man, presumably the owner of the land, and they were looking over the work that’s been going on on the site.

It’s currently shrouded in black material, so all you can see is a black box, but I understand it’s going to be a very interesting looking building.” Whether they spotted the Icynene insulation installed is a different question and so far no reports have been confirmed.
