Spray Icynene over unconditioned space such as crawl space, basement, or cantilevered floor
One issue homeowners can come across is an uninsulated floor, you may notice this especially in the winter if you are walking around your home and getting cold feet. This temperature difference can be uncomfortable to live in and require attending to. Icynene works by creating a air tight seal and by applying this to the underside of your ceilings you can ensure a regulated temperature in your home.
Common Problems with uninsulated Floors.
- Cold and uncomfortable floors
- Unwanted noises on the main floor originating from the basement
- Buckling hardwood floors due to moisture build-up in the floor system
- Existing insulation falling out due to gravity
- Conditioned air moving through un-insulated ductwork in the garage ceiling assembly or other unconditioned space cannot retain the conditioned temperature (heated air or cooled air). This causes additional discomfort for the occupants
- Where pipework enclosed within the ceiling/floor assembly is only protected by traditional insulation from the cold of the garage, frozen pipes may burst
Results of using Icynene Spray Foam Insulation
- Even floor temperatures for added comfort
- Quieter spaces on main floor
- Minimized potential for buckling of hardwood floors

Icynene expands completely filling all cavities and voids eliminating air leakage/infiltration in your roof. The Icynene Spray Foam Insulation system is the most suitable form of insulation for your roof, attic or loft space in both new and existing homes.
Insulation for Timber Frame Construction
The Icynene Spray Foam insulation system is ideal for timber frame construction as it can be easily applied to small and open spaces filling gaps that are normally inaccessible by normal insulation.
Icynene Insulation is easily applied between the studs of the timber frame structure to deliver a highly insulated airtight structure which will not sag or settle over time and will maintain a high level of performance for the life time of the building.
As you can see from the image below, plumbers and electricians will easily be able to work around this insulation method and electrical cables can run freeley without the risk of overheating. As Icynene is open-celled you can even cut into it quite freely if you wanted to run pipes or cables, however this can effect the insulating quality.
Dry Lining Insulation
Icynene works as a perfect ecological insulation method when thinking of applying to new or existing drylining insulation.
When new drylining studs are installed on walls we can spray foam which will expand to up to 100 times it’s initial volume to seal and insulate every crack and crevasse and in addition eliminate cold bridging of the timber or metal studs.
