Why Use Professional Contractors?

It is widely recognized that SPF requires a more detailed installation than some other insulation types, but the list of benefits for SPF over other types is considerable and comes with proper application.  Safe and accurate installation of SPF calls for the knowledge, skills, and abilities possessed by an experienced professional installer.  The product must be installed properly to realize the greatest performance characteristics.

Your home or building is likely your greatest investment and you need to make the right choices for it. SPF can have a great impact upon your property, by way of energy savings, sustainable longevity, performance, value and comfort. But the installation of SPF is a skilled craft – despite how easy it may look on a video. Your property is going to temporarily be turned into a manufacturing site for the SPF, and you will be expected to remove yourself, family, and pets from the jobsite until the established re-occupancy time has passed (typically 24 hours).

SPFA Professional Certification Program

The SPFA Professional Certification Program (PCP) is oriented toward professional contractors, and ensures that the market can make a confident decision about selecting a professional SPF contractor who has received proper training. An SPFA PCP Certified Assistant, Installer, Master Installer and Project Manager will have demonstrated their competencies on health, safety, handling and installation of SPF, for either insulation or roofing. Having such an industry credential allows that contractor to differentiate themselves from the competition and adds to the value delivered to the consumer.
The SPFA PCP was created and operates according to rigorous and demanding standards. SPF installation is typically a professional’s job. SPFA hopes that industry credentials such as PCP, among others from related industries, are a useful resource for consumers looking for contractors that have demonstrated their knowledge, skills and abilities in order to achieve these certifications.
SPFA believes that the path to a healthful, safe, high-quality and performing SPF installation travels through the hands of a knowledgeable, trained, experienced, and ideally PCP-certified professional contractor.
