St. Louis is a city rich with culture and history. Founded by French settlers in 1764, it quickly expanded as a major trading port on the Mississippi River. In 1904, the city hosted the World’s Fair and the Summer Olympics. From the Gateway Arch to Laclede’s Landing, the city is home to beautiful architecture.
As one of the oldest neighborhoods in St. Louis, Lafayette Square was built in the French style the city was born from. Stately, ornate houses surround Lafayette Park – the first park in the city.
Foam Engineers, insulation contractors, were recently contracted to insulate a new construction home near the historic neighborhood. The new construction home was designed with a nod to its historic surroundings. Foam Engineers created a hybrid insulation solution, custom for the home. R14 closed cell spray foam was applied to the roof sheathing. R30 fiberglass batting was then placed underneath the foam. Blown cellulose was applied to the 2×6 exterior walls, giving them an R-value of 21. The rim joists in the basement and first floor were also sprayed with closed cell spray foam.
