How a Spray Foam Insulation Rig Can Help Your Business

By Kevin Malone

A spray foam insulation rig can help you get started in the SPF insulation business or add to your fleet to expand operations. The right spray foam insulation kit will provide you with an efficient and cost-effective way to insulate buildings and handle the volume of business you do and the capacity you need. Because a spray foam insulation rig is mobile, you can easily move it from job site to job site, too.

Spray Foam Insulation Rigs for a Variety of Jobs

This lets you grow your business across a wide variety of jobs, including:

  • Residential construction for new homes, additions, and retrofits.
  • Commercial construction for office buildings, retail spaces, warehouses, and more.
  • Industrial construction for factories, power plants, and other industrial facilities.
  • Disaster recovery and rebuilding for repairing or rebuilding structures damaged by natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and wildfires.
  • Energy retrofit projects for upgrading existing buildings to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs.

Depending on the type of jobs you do, the expert at Intech Equipment and Supply can make sure you get the right spray foam insulation kit for the job.

The Right Spray Foam Insulation Rigs Can Expand Your Opportunities

Offering spray foam insulation can provide a competitive advantage. You can go directly to consumers or partner with builders and contractors to provide your services.

Work Quickly and Efficiently, Generate More Revenue

The right spray foam insulation rig lets you apply SPF quickly and efficiently. This lets you take on more jobs and complete them more efficiently. This lowers your cost of labor and improves your productivity. In other words, you can grow your bottom line with equipment that is right-sized, especially when you are taking on large-scale jobs. An entry-level rig or mid-sized machine may be fine for smaller projects like residential applications. However, when you are handling commercial roofing or other high-volume jobs, a larger spray foam insulation rig will have the power and output to do the job quickly and efficiently.

Find New Applications and Customers

You can also expand your market reach by offering additional services to new markets and customers. Not only can you market yourself as providing insulation, but you can also promote energy efficiency to lower energy costs, improved air quality, and fast installation services.

Work Safely

SPF insulation application has some inherent dangers if you are not taking the proper safety precautions. When you invest in a high-quality spray foam insulation rig, you can significantly reduce the risk of fire hazards, respiratory irritation, and other safety problems that can occur when working with traditional insulation materials. You can also equip your rig with a spray foam insulation kit that includes fire extinguishers, eye wash stations, and first aid kits.

Evaluating Spray Foam Rigs for Total Cost of Ownership

When you are evaluating spray foam insulation rigs, you will want to take a close look at the total cost of ownership (TCO). Buying SPF equipment is a big investment and will likely be one of the largest expenses in your business, so you want to make sure you are getting the best solution. For example, one machine may be less expensive. However, you will want to look at your total costs before making a decision, including:

  • Your initial investment, which often equates to just 10% of TCO.
  • Cost of operations, installation, testing, and training.
  • Cost of maintenance for inspecting, cleaning, and keeping equipment in optimal equipment
  • Cost of downtime that can sideline jobs and cost you money, including indirect costs of overcoming downtime.
  • Cost of production based on output and volume.

Where you purchase your equipment also plays a big role in TCO, especially when it comes to customer service and support. What happens when your equipment breaks down and you cannot get a distributor on the phone to help troubleshoot? Projects could get stuck on hold and cost you money (and reputation).

Once you buy from most distributors, their job is complete. With Intech Equipment and Supply, however, you get access to a team of technicians with years of field service to help you find the right solution or replacement parts.
