Canal Street Furniture Warehouse gets Spray Foam Insulation
Star Spray Foam Systems, LLC wins proposal for insulating the Canal Street Furniture Warehouse located 4021 Tulane Avenue New Orleans. Star Foam was approached by the owner of the warehouse about ways to eliminate the excessive temperatures on the second floor of the warehouse. The owner had expressed that it was impossible to use as retail space in the extreme cold and hot temperatures and needed a solution. We recommended that they spray the roofing system with a minimum of 4” of 0.5lb open cell spray foam insulation to stabilize the building climate. It worked! Initial temperature readings were taken of the roofing system at mid-day and averaged 132 degrees with radiating heat adding approximately 15 degrees to the inside air. Upon completion, the radiating heat was eliminated making the warehouse temperature comparable to the rest of the warehouse. Total insulation installed exceeded 27,700 b.f. at 4”.
