Demilec Sealection 500 Low-Density Foam Insulation

Sealection 500 is a non-toxic spray foam. Spray-applied as a liquid, it expands within seconds to 120 times its volume to fill every nook and cranny. It provides superior energy efficiency and improved indoor air quality by eliminating air movement through walls. Sealection 500 has undergone extensive testing and meets the intent of all building code requirements. It reduces airborne noise and dust, making it the healthy choice for those who suffer from allergies, asthma or chemical sensitivity. Circle 125 on inquiry card

In My Own Words

"Energy efficiency has always been a top priority in our homes. By using Demilec Sealection 500 low-density foam, we are able to provide homeowners with the best insulation on the market. Low-density foam allows us to seal cracks and crevices completely, eliminating any unwanted air infiltration as well as the need for traditional housewrap. Obviously, this type of insulation greatly reduces fuel bills by boosting the efficiency of our heating and air-conditioning units.

"Not only does it provide a greater R factor, but Sealection 500 is also beneficial to those with allergies by helping to create a cleaner home environment."

In My Own Words

"As a builder of custom homes, we realize that product and name association is important to homebuyers. When it comes to a home's necessities, the HVAC unit is just as important as the type of brick or insulation. When we decided to use only Carrier heating and air-conditioning units, it became apparent that the Carrier name was representative of a quality product. All builders are expected to provide an efficient and dependable HVAC product. But we feel especially secure working with Carrier, the largest maker of HVAC equipment and a company that provides us with the latest technology to best serve our homeowners."

In My Own Words

"From a builder's standpoint, we look for products that will minimize homeowner maintenance and reduce callbacks. Delta has always been a quality product for us, so much so that we stress to our buyers that it is the only brand we use. Delta has always accommodated us with the latest styles, and having a solid brass valve body certainly allows for a dependable faucet. In addition, the physical vapor deposition finish is the same application that is used on the space shuttle, which obviously makes for a durable finish."

In My Own Words

"We have used Tamko Heritage shingles for many years. I wanted a shingle that provided more of a wood-shingle appearance, and the natural timber color and the random-cut shingle of the Tamko product line definitely accomplish this. The random cut also effectively reduces waste. In addition to a vast color selection, Tamko is continually updating its line, so it can now supply us with even an algae-resistant shingle.
