WELCOME TO THE MARCH/APRIL 2015
ISSUE OF SPRAY FOAM MAGAZINE
If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing
right. This phrase is firmly lodged
in my brain, a consequence of
careless lawn mowing, among
other responsibilities, when I was a
teenager (I’m most likely not alone
in this regard). Sure, the phrase is
cliché, but this particular truism is
nevertheless useful in virtually every
context, and it rings especially true in
the spray foam industry.
Spray foam offers a wealth of
complexity, from the installation
process to the product itself,
and anything less than a superb
application can put owners and
occupants at risk, as well as
undermine the industry as a whole.
Proper execution is an industry wide
concern, and this sentiment has been
echoed by manufacturers, industry
organizations, and regulatory
agencies alike. Our March/April 2015
Issue is also joining that chorus.
In the following pages, we’ll dive
into the importance of following job
site checklists and complying with
building codes for fire protective
coatings, and how the latter can
benefit your business’s bottom line.
This issue also digs deeper into
the business side of spray foam
operations by detailing strategies
for maximizing your company’s
profitability and thriving in your first
year in business. On the subject of
equipment, we see some general
considerations for equipping your
rig, as well as hear from contractors
who’ve opted for rig versatility.
We’ve also included a few unique
projects, including a commercial
insulation job at a Coca-Cola facility,
and a residential insulation job
accessed via barge. To top things
off, we review the goings-on at the
Sprayfoam 2015 Convention & Expo.
Thanks for reading, and remember:
foam for our future.
