Energy Savings for Your Hamilton Mill Home

If you could save money on your Hamilton Mill home and help out the environment, you would, right? Spray polyurethane foam is one way to do just that.

What is SPRAY POLYURETHANE FOAM? SPF is an insulation and sealant that can form a continuous air barrier on walls, roofs, around corners, and on many surfaces in and around a home. It is created by mixing two liquids that react very quickly, expanding on contact to create rigid foam.
