Many building codes require fireproofing protection as a safety precaution. Spray-applied cementitious fireproofing can be used in commercial buildings when fire protection is needed but drywall is not an option, for example, with Q-decking or steel columns and structures. This coating protects a building’s structural steel from failure in the event of a fire, and can be the difference between damage occurring and structural collapse.
This same spray-applied fireproofing material can also be installed on top of spray foam insulation to meet residential fire barrier code requirements. It’s an important element of home safety as well. When the effect of a fire is slowed, occupants have more time to escape.
The materials used by Sunny South are designed to meet the strict building codes and insurance industry specifications for today’s building structures.
We have a ceramic floor above the garage and in the winter, the floor would often be 18 degrees colder than the room temperature. After removing the fiberglass and adding Icynene, the temperature difference is now less than 2 degrees, and we no longer have frozen pipes.
We were living in our 2 car garage while building our 3200 sq ft house with Icynene. We are now living in our home and using the same amount of fuel to heat and cool the house as we were using in the garage.
I had no idea that any one product could do so much for our homes as well as benefit the clients. We were able to reduce our energy consumption dramatically, which reduced our energy bills.
After re-insulating my attic with Icynene, my home is significantly cooler in summer & warmer in winter.
With Icynene in our townhouse, our energy bills are 35% less than our neighbors who used fiberglass. And with the addition of an air filter, our son is having less asthma attacks.
I am SO glad I decided to use Icynene to insulate the entire envelope of my house. We did a full-renovation, and the 100% air barrier has been fabulous. Ameri-spec tested our house for the federal renovation grant, and said we were more heat efficient than most of the new “green” homes going up on the west side. Icynene definitely contributed to the $3800 rebate we got.
