PROJECT HIGHLIGHT: Sidewall Spray Foam Poultry House

Spray foam in poultry house

Delmarva Spray Foam and Delmarva Insulation were contracted to install sidewall spray foam insulation in three poultry houses.

The customer was experiencing issues with three 50’ x 550’ poultry houses. The structures were below standard static pressure, a result of air leaking around plywood and fiberglass insulation in the sidewalls of the structures. Additionally, the block foundations were sweating which created moisture issues inside the buildings.

Delmarva Spray Foam applied two pounds of agricultural spray foam to each structure. To prevent chickens from pecking foam from the walls, custom hybrid foam was installed to the lower 18 inches of the walls over the agricultural foam.

This hybrid foam is a custom blend designed in partnership with our spray foam manufacturer for this specific application to protect the agricultural foam and the birds, providing years of value and performance. To further help protect the birds and the structures each foam product contains beetle agents to help prevent the bugs from eating either product.

Spray foam insulation is a great product for agricultural use. Contact our office to learn more.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT: Full Spray Foam Residential Home

Spray foam insulation installed in a home

Delmarva Spray Foam and Delmarva Insulation were contracted by McGregor Custom Homes to install spray foam in a new home in Rehoboth Beach Yacht and Country Club.

Throughout the building process, the buyer was focused on energy efficiency and comfort. With this home’s location off Rehoboth Bay, the buyer was concerned about the impact of bay winds on interior climate, noise and energy efficiency.

As part of the home’s energy efficiency, the buyer installed a geothermal system for heating and cooling. He wanted a high-performance insulation system to match. In addition, we wanted to be sure his family was comfortable and their home furnishings and collectibles were kept in optimal condition.

Spray foam insulation was installed throughout the 8,000-square-foot home. Installing spray foam insulation sealed all exterior air leaks to make the home airtight on the day of application. Fully sealing the shell of the home helped reduce exterior noise bleed despite the high wind exposure.
