Get the absolute best insulation for your home.
Whether your in LOMBARD, or Elmhurst spray foam will greatly improve the comfort inside your home while reducing your energy loss!
SPF insulation will help you save on energy costs and lowers utility bills by creating a tight seal and preventing air movement. The US Department of Energy (DOE) studies show that 40% of your home's energy is lost due to air infiltration. This air infiltrates the home in the form of drafts through walls sockets, windows and doorways. Spray foam expands and completely fills every tiny hole and crevasse providing a superior air seal combined with a powerful R-Value per inch of installed spray foam.

See what our satisfied customers have to say about our spray foam service!
Bruce was very professional and knowledgeable. Answered all my questions. Josh was on time and did a good job spray foaming my garage attic. Reasonable priced. Would hire Koala again.
Ray and his team were excellent, responsive and a great value. They took their time, and the spray foam insulation looks great in our cathedral ceiling. I can't recommend them enough and will use them again on the second half of our remodel.
Better than excepted. Great job and they cleaned everything up. Plus, the new spray foam insulation is working great. Much Cooler and much quieter. The cost was reasonable. Great value for what they did.
LEARN ABOUT FOAM!
There are two types of spray foam insulation: Open Cell and Closed Cell. Both materials are great insulators and air barriers, and offer many benefits to make your Carol Stream area home more energy- efficient. To determine which material is best for your project will require an evaluation by one of our highly qualified energy consultants.
If you live in Chicago where there are extreme seasonal temperature changes or you live in a flood prone area, closed cell is often a better choice. Closed cell spray foam acts as a vapor barrier, keeping water and moisture out of your home and the foam itself is water resistant. Open cell is a great option if you live in a milder climate, as it is moisture permeable and help provides an optimal barrier. Often, regardless of where you live, you may choose to use both types of spray foam on a single project. Your Koala Insulation professional can help you decide which type of spray foam is best for you and your project!
When it comes to insulating your home, R-value matters.
YES. Koala insulation of Chicago-West experts are trained in installing spray foam and take all precautions and follow strict guidelines during the application process. Once the material has been allowed to cure properly, there will be no harmful chemicals left behind. Fun fact - Koala Insulation of Chicago-West holds a certification from the American Chemistry Council for spray foam safety as well as appropriate insurance and licensure.
Spray foam should only be installed by a professional that has the proper training. The Koala Insulation spray foam material is mixed on-site in our fully self-contained rig and is sent through a hose into the stud cavity, where it hardens and creates a long-term barrier to guard against dust, noise, moisture and even rodent infestations.
Greater “racking” strength
Spray polyurethane foam has a higher racking strength, which adds structural strength and enhances overall building stability. In fact, spray foam is the only insulation material that adds structure integrity. It adheres to the cavities of the walls and in between ceiling joists making them more rigid to protect against cracking, shifting, or shaking during extreme weather conditions. NAHB Research demonstrated SPF filled walls could add from 75% to 200% racking strength to walls of OSB, plywood, light gauge metal, vinyl siding, or gypsum board.
Highly resistant during severe weather events
Not only does closed spray foam withstand the effects of high winds, but it also performs well under wet conditions. The material is water resistant, has minimal water absorption, and is classified as an acceptable flood resistant material. FEMA has published a rating system ranking building products from 1 to 5(not acceptable to highly acceptable). SPF carries a “5” rating for its outstanding water-resistant qualities.
Prevents bugs and rodents
Spray foam is effective at filling tiny cracks and gaps within walls and attic rafters. Rodents and insects such as rats, mice, cockroaches and other insects can enter through the tiniest of holes, leaving behind waste or destroying your attic storage. Koala spray foam insulation creates a durable barrier that seals all unseen entry points, making it an optimal insect and pest resistant option.
With the increasing demand for comfort and energy efficiency, spray foam is the optimal choice for your insulation needs. It can actually strengthen walls and has low vapor permeance (moisture transmission) and is ideal in rooms where sound-reduction is desired such as in home theaters or, for a light sleeper, bedrooms.
Koala technicians are trained in handling the spray foam components and in completing the installation safely. We guarantee we will prepare the job site to meet all safety standards!

We highly recommend Koala Insulation!
Great company! Our request for an estimate was handled very swiftly and the service was performed almost immediately afterward. The Koala team was very careful, protecting our walls and floors, and showed concern for our well being since it was cold outside and the door was open. The work was performed efficiently and thoroughly and they cleaned up after themselves so one would never know they were there...except: the next morning we could already notice that our upstairs area was warmer than it had ever been in the winter! We highly recommend Koala Insulation!
A pleasure to work with
John and his team at Koala Insulation were responsive, on-time, and did an exceptional job with our attic insulation. A pleasure to work with, we would highly recommend them.
Oak Brook, IL

Always on time
Unlike many companies, they were always on time. From initial appointment to installation. Also unlike other companies what they quote was what they charged. No additional fee for Miscellaneous things. I am going to get more insulation done with them."
