Spray foam is a type of insulation that is sprayed in place through a gun. Polyurethane and Isocyanate foams are applied as a two-component mixture that comes together at the tip of a gun, and forms an expanding foam. Cementitious foam is applied in a similar manner but does not expand. Spray foam insulation is sprayed onto concrete slabs, into wall cavities of an unfinished wall, against the interior side of sheathing, or through holes drilled in sheathing or drywall into the wall cavity of a finished wall
Over 95% of Irish householders, apartment occupants use heating for more than 335 days of the year. The figure in the UK is similar and there is no trend to suggest that habits in this regard will reduce. Our climate has become the most common social greeting with more and more satire on when we will eventually have a period of warm, dry weather.
Because of higher humidity and wet conditions, our houses have become home to many sources of fungal and mould attack. There are many adverse and negative health problems arising from such conditions especially the release of fungal spores into the breathable living air space.
Regardless of the climate debate, the reality is that Irish and UK weather conditions have deteriorated with lower temperatures and higher precipitation and humidity. Another sad reality is that the price of energy has increased and continues to do at alarming levels. Predictions in early 2013 suggest that energy costs are likely to double by 2018.
We are all aware of the negative environmental impact of using fossil fuels but look at these more of a global issue rather than an urgent door step problem. Every unit of heat from oil, gas and coal has a rapidly growing carbon cost / tax. In addition, the raw material cost is also increasing due to depleting resources.
If you own an A rated passive house using only renewable energy or fully insulated house we cannot help you. However, if you amongst those without proper insulation then, you are losing money every minute of the day. If you decide to do nothing your bills will more than double within five years.
Spray Foam Insulation is an important step to reducing your heat losses. By investing now you save significantly in the future, increase the capital value of your property and utilise heat for the purpose intended. Spray foam also has great Soundproof Qualities which allows for greater privacy in domestic houses, offices and commercial buildings.

A new tourist route 26km in length is to be developed along a disused railway line along the Atlantic way, Ring of Kerry is expected to become an internationally rated tourist attraction.
A proposed 26km greenway to be developed along the unused railway line between Glenbeigh and Caherciveen. The Atlantic along the Ring of Kerry is expected to become an internationally rated tourist attraction. Transport Minister Alan Kelly yesterday announced €3.4m for the greenway from Glenbeigh to Cahirciveen, on a section of the Great Southern Railway which closed in 1960.
It as an exceptional and unique visitor attraction, he said it would bring cycling tourists, hikers and walkers and visitors from all over the world to the Ring of Kerry, creating upwards of 80 well needed jobs between construction and sustainable employment when in operation.
Minister Kelly said it would be the country’s number one greenway. The project will be part of a €11m funding program for cycling infrastructure nationally. Between time to be spent acquiring land and construction work, the project will take two years to complete.
Imagine getting off the train in Killarney and cycling to Killorglin 🙂 GREAT.
The line runs close to, even parallel to the winding Ring of Kerry road, one of the country’s busiest tourist routes.
The hillside route, running over a viaduct at Kells and through tunnels, commands spectacular sea and mountain views and the development follows the success of the Great Western Greenway, in Co Mayo, which has resulted in about 40 new jobs and the sustaining of another 50 in the local economy.
Atlantic way Kerry bring local new to visitors to County Kerry Ireland
Minister Alan Kelly, with Ronan Clifford and Michael and Elaine Kavanagh, cycling on the planned greenway in County Kerry.
The announcement was welcomed in Kerry, an area hard hit by unemployment and emigration.
Pat Kavanagh, manager of IRD Foilmore/Kells, said it was a “fantastic project” that would benefit a wide area. Thirty-eight groups nationally applied for funding for similar projects and very high criteria had to be met, but this one ticked all the boxes. And won the attention of the group.
Kerry Fine Gael TD Brendan Griffin said a lot of work, consensus and agreement remained outstanding to bring the greenway to fruition and hoped progress would be made to grasp an unprecedented opportunity for south Kerry and the wider Kerry area in general.
Kerry County Council, expected to put up matching funding of more than €350,000, and South Kerry Development Partnership have for several years been promoting the project and the funding application
The projects are being funded as part of the Government’s National Cycle Network. Separately, nine towns will receive €6.5m to improve their cycling infrastructure.
