Are you thinking about purchasing supplies and equipment for your professional spray foam business? Based on our recent E-Book, ‘Top Five Considerations for a Spray Foam Equipment Provider,’ this article addresses the latest trends and statistics surrounding the rising popularity of spray foam insulation in the building and construction industry, as well as the many reasons why you should enlist the support of an equipment provider to help you throughout the purchase process and beyond.
After many years of acting as a driving force for the insulation industry – providing high R-value, energy-efficient insulation – spray foam foam continues to be a popular insulation solution, projected by some experts to experience a substantial market surge by 2017.
Why such a dramatic upswing in recent years? A combination of the implementation of new building codes and energy mandates, as well as increased spending in the building and construction industry, is driving the demand for insulation to a 7.6 percent annual growth, and is expected to create a $10.3 billion market by 2017, according to Cleveland-based research group, Freedonia.
And if the experts are right, foam insulation– for the very first time – will equal the market share of fiberglass, which has been the insulation market leader for what seems like forever.
Trust Your Spray Foam Equipment Investments to the Experts
In an effort to keep up with this rapid uptick in the spray foam insulation industry, Intech Equipment and Supply offers both the knowledge and manufacturer support to assist spray foam professionals throughout the purchase process and beyond. A full service spray foam equipment and parts supplier, Intech’s online store features a wide range of industry manufacturers, providing the best in trusted industry equipment and backed by expert service. We sell spray foam insulation, spray foam equipment parts and turnkey mobile spray rigs, as well as traditional roofing equipment and safety equipment.
Five Ways We Can Help
Here are five reasons why we think you should consider teaming up with a spray foam equipment provider:
- Nationwide footprint, easy accessibility.
Many customers don’t understand the impact and reach Intech has as a nationwide spray foam equipment provider. With locations scattered across the U.S., we can deliver parts anywhere in the country by the next day. For example, if you are an East Coast professional desperately in need of a specific part after 5 p.m., a West Coast Intech agent can ship that part via FedEx, with a goal of delivery by 10:30 a.m. the next day.
In addition, if your spray foam equipment breaks down, an Intech rep is often located within just a few hours of your location, and can be there to help with technical service and support either that very same day, or the next day.
- Customer service.
Sure, everybody sells parts, but the truth is that they don’t have the knowledge and service to back it up. At Intech, we offer same-day and next-day service, as well as troubleshooting – either in person or via phone, across all five time zones.
At Intech, we work with each and every customer to ensure your parts ship right the first time, carefully walking you through the installation or replacement over the phone. IN fact, one of our key differentiators in the space is the fact that we can do what most of what our competitors simply “talk” about or “can’t” do.
- Total cost of ownership.
Many of Intech’s competitors commonly beat us on price, but it’s important to understand the phenomenon surrounding the true cost of ownership.
For example, if you’re a brand-new spray insulation contractor and you have your first, official big job, what do you do when things go bad? Maybe you purchased your spray foam equipment cheap from a big distributor, but now you can’t get them on the phone to help you with repairs. As a result, you are holding up the project’s builders and other contractors because you can’t get the job done without repair work. In the end the entire project ends up costing you more than initially projected.
When purchases through Intech, businesses are back to work within a day when issues arise, instead of wondering what is going to happen next – and more importantly, when.
Intech stands behind everything we do. If you have a warranty issue and you purchased your spray foam equipment from our store, we will fix it. No questions asked.
- Insurance coverage and protection.
This is an area that many spray foam professionals do not tend to think about when just starting out. However, many spray foam rig builders have no formal backing and are not always covered by insurance.
If you purchase your rig directly from Intech – new or used – we stand behind what we sell you, and fix or replace any parts as quickly as possible. Plus, the fact that we’ve been in business for more than 20 years gives our customers peace of mind that our solid, stable company will be around when you need us the most.
