Spray Foam Insulation and Coastal Flooding

Publisher: Icynene
Stating that storm surges, hurricanes and flooding could cause massive damage in coastal communities, this paper presents a concise roadmap to the clean-up and process for spray foam contractors and potential customers. The necessary assesses that should be done after such calamities like the removals that are required to affect a proper clean up, the point at which retrofit can begin, and design and re-construction strategies to provide better flood resistance are listed in it. The paper suggests that before doing the retrofit work, it would be necessary to determine the readiness of insulated assemblies for spray form, and points out that flood surfaces should be disinfected and treated to address mold. It explains about some retrofit strategies for flood zones, and also includes a reference chart which identifies key requirements for the use of Icynene spray foam in basement and crawlspaces subjected to flooding.
