About JSJ Foam Insulation Ltd

JSJ Foam Insulation, through its relationship with Greentherm Solutions Ltd, is the sole approved installer for Icynene in Glasgow and the West of Scotland. JSJ Foam Insulation is proud to be a partner of Icynene Inc. and a promoter of the Icynene brand.

What is Icynene
The Icynene insulation system is a series of soft, flexible spray foam products that deliver up to 50% greater energy savings when compared to other insulation products. Icynene is perfect for underfloor insulation, cavity wall insulation, roof insulation, dry lining insulation, sound insulation, eradicating condensation and more. When sprayed in place Icynene expands completely filling all cavities and voids creating a sealed building envelope which eliminates air leakage/infiltration. Air leakage/infiltration accounts for up to 50% of heat loss from a building. Unlike other foams, Icynene's unique polyicynene formulation is 100% water blown and therefore contains no harmful agents, volatile organic chemicals, HCFCs, HFAs, HFCs or formaldehyde.

Ideal for wood or steel framed construction, Icynene conforms to unusual geometry and provides a continuous barrier that significantly reduces air leakage, minimising airborne moisture and optimizing energy efficiency.

Commercial design considerations come with very specific challenges that can't be address with just any type of insulation. Complex designs that result from traffic patterns, acoustic consideration, light sources and aesthetic qualities are easily covered by Icynene Spray Foam Insulation.

Why we are different
JSJ Foam Insulation Ltd is a local company based in Eaglesham, Glasgow. We offer a professional service, outstanding customer service, using a first class product.

We used JSJ to insulate two of our bedrooms that were damp and cold due to poor insulation. Jim and his guys were excellent. Very professional and showed us progress throughout using a thermal imaging camera. Very happy with the result and great people to work with.

I run my own Architectural Practice and researched various companies. But have used JSJ to apply insulation to roof spaces and walls on a Renovation Project of my own, finding both Principals (Jim + Susan) very attentive and helpful. The site operatives were polite and hard working. Most certainly will recommend JSJ to friends and Clients.

From Richard Rowan

Scenario
A modern detached house built about 30 years ago just as insulation standards started to increase. A big issue was heat loss through the suspended ground floor which was not insulated in any way.

We moved into the house in mid 2017 and one of our first importnat improvements was the replacement of all the old and weary windows and doors with new high insulation units.

Project
JSJ Foam Insulation Ltd were asked to consider whether they could install their Icynene spray foam insulation product to the underside of the ground floor. The problem they faced was that the height of the space between the solum and the underside of the floor joists was only about 280mm, this being considered to be an absolute minumum working space.

The work
The JSJ team arrived on the first day and suceeded in spraying the foam from underneath to approximately 50% of the underfloor area. It became clear that the working space in the other 50% was impossibly small and the job was concluded at that point.

However, the benefits of the insulation was very quickly seen in the rooms that had been treated.

So, discussions took place with JSJ about a different approach to the remainder of the floor. It was decided to lift the floor and to fill the area between the joists from above. Jim and his team managed to lift the chipboard floor in single pieces that could be stood up against the interior walls. And so the required insulation was installed.

The outcome
We are very happy with the outcome of the work. Our ground floor rooms are now very much more comfortable and retain the heat much better overnight after the central heating goes off.

Our heating and cooking is provided by gas which I monitor on a weekly basis. In the 3 month period from February to April 2019 after the work was completed, our gas usage reduced by just over 20% compared to the same period in 2018.
Workmanship
We are of the opinion that the quality of the workmanship exhibited by Jim and his team has been extremely high. Our big worry for the second stage of project was ending up with creaky floors. That has not turned out to be the case - the floors are just as they were prior to JSJ coming on site. Both phases of work were carried out in an efficient manner and our house left in a clean and tidy state.

Recommendation
We are very happy with the work done and have no hesitation in recommending JSJ Foam Insulation Ltd.

Insulated my suspended floor, made a massive difference. Removed all draughts and made the room noticability warmer. The savings from my energy Bill's will easily pay for the upfront cost over time

It didn't work out for us to use JSJ Foam Insulation this time round, so I can't comment on their work in terms of product/installation, but I thought their customer service was excellent. Susan was very responsive and easy to deal with. We'll hopefully get the chance to use them in the future.

This recommendation is 2 months in the making. I was wary of waxing lyrical about my new insulation until I saw the new, almost instant, coziness translated into savings. Prior to the installation, my gas bills were through the roof and the top half of the house was very draughty. We had underfloor heating in one part of the house but, although it was toasty, the system was running almost constantly with the floor very hot at times. Now, after the foam insulation the temperature is as good but without the heat flying out of the roof and the floor is now a very comfortable temperature. Next was the energy company; they refused to believe that my energy use had dropped by a whopping 50%. They sent someone to verify the meter readings before they would accept to credit my account by, wait for it, £700. I must apologise to JSJ foam insulation for not having given any feedback until now but I hope they don’t feel that I am not totally satisfied with them or the concept of foam insulation. It is quick and clean to install and produces an instant increase in comfort. They left the house clean and tidy and were courteous and professional to a fault.

Fantastic service from start to finish. Upon purchasing our property, the lack of insulation became apparent. New to the many ways we could insulate, we sought advice from multiple companies; JSJ were one of them. As beginners to spray foam, the JSJ team were always at hand to answer the many questions we had. Our new home required insulation under the floor and in the loft space. We were comforted by Jim’s accuracy and time spent to fully understand the design of our property and the correct application of spray foam for different areas. Jim and Susan made multiple visits ensuring we were 100% happy with product and fully informed with all the details before we agreed to carry out the work. On both mornings of the project the JSJ team arrived bang on time. Exceptional care was taken to minimise mess and disruption within our home and the team worked tirelessly to complete the job on time. The finished product, both underfloor and loft space looks flawless. We have already noticed an increase in heat retention within our home; in particular the rooms upstairs where insulation was minimal are a lot warmer. Following completion of the project the 25year Icynene warranty was promptly issued. We would not hesitate to recommend JSJ Foam Insulation to anyone looking for a solution to their insulation needs. Top class service from a very knowledgeable team. Many thanks Dave and Maggie

Based on recommendation from John Miller Construction, we approached Jim and Susan regarding underfloor insulation for our bungalow. The service from quote to completion was excellent; and the end result is simply fantastic. We have seen, heard and felt improvements: 1) visual - condensation on windows eliminated 2) acoustic - dampening with reduction in noise from central heating boiler (located below bedroom floor) 3) warmth - home heats quick and retains too. Overall delighted with product and service. Would highly recommend worth every penny. Thank you.

I would certainly recommend JSJ Foam Insulation as they are nice and pleasant people who provided an all round excellent service. My property is now warm, cosy, draft free and noise from the traffic outside has been reduced. Heating bills have reduced due to the property heating quicker and staying warm for longer. I am extremely happy with the product and service provided. Thank you again for a job well done.

Jim, Susan and the JSJ team have worked with us on a difficult and unusual building to ensure that our renovation project is airtight and well insulated. They have been cheerful, patient and happy to work around the rest of the project. The work itself was delivered efficiently and with very little disruption - excellent. We would recommend this company to anyone considering this type of insulation

JSJ put foam insulation into our loft and an extension some months ago. We can now notice a significant difference in temperature in a bedroom that was previously very cold. Very happy with the work, workmanship and follow up on the work. I would highly recommend JSJ.

Testimony for JSJ Foam Insulation From Mhairi and Jim Gibson, Edinburgh We have just had the foam insulation installed in our bungalow in Edinburgh and Id like to say what a huge difference this has made to making the house totally comfortable and snug like we never imagined. As a background to the story, we bought and renovated the house last year and thought we had done a good job. We renovated during the summer 2018 which as we all know was a warm summer and although we thought we had insulated the loft conversion to a decent standard it soon became apparent that the joiner had made a hopeless job of it and it was absolutely freezing up there. We also have a decent size solum and we counted 13 airbricks right round the whole house. Although we have thick undelay and carpets it was not enough and so the whole house felt like a huge draught box. I know this sounds ridiculous but the upstairs was so cold I went to the Morningside charity shops and bought 5 fur coats so I could lay them over the bed at night. It was the only way to get warm and each night it felt like we were getting ready for an episode of Game of thrones. I was so cold I was thoroughly miserable. I have to say the results are really amazing. Before we got it done, I would walk upstairs and it honestly felt like someone had left all the velux windows open. It was that draughty . But now after we have had the place Icynened it’s really snug and also very quiet. I love that I am in charge of my own fresh air! There have now been nights where its too warm and we have to open a window at night hurrah! Downstairs is the same. we have a thermostat in the hallway and my daughter asks why the heating isn’t going on (it’s not cold but we are so used to it going on all the time cos it was cold before) so we keep upping the thermostat by one degree and it comes on then goes off again after 20 mins. This must be the effect of the Icynene. It does what it says on the can! Heating bills – we moved in last November and because the place was freezing our bill for the first 3 months was about £1200. This is because we were trying to get comfortable. It’s a new heating system so very efficient but we just couldn’t get warm cos it was so draughty so this is why the bill was so high. We haven’t had a bill in yet after the icynene but I know its going to be lower as some days the heating only goes on in the morning, its on an auto timer with a manual override. I work from home so if it was cold, I would totally be putting it onto manual but I have not felt the need to do that. This is definitely not wishful thinking as I hate being cold! so if it was cold the heating would totally be going on! Now I know there are people out there that go into the whole " payback " and the cost of getting your house Icynened, however for us it wasn’t about the saving money/payback etc etc it was about being comfortable in our house. How can you put a value on not being cold and miserable? There’s simply nothing worse than being cold when you are at home particularly after we had already spent a lot of money renovating, new windows etc. Before we got the place Icynened we were gutted that we had spent all that money on renovating and we felt like saying, well what was the point of doing all that , the place is freezing anyway ! So, for us it was about being comfortable and warm and not draughty and being able to open windows when we want to, and JSJ have totally helped us achieve that. We would definitely recommend this to anyone. Jim and Susan are very very knowledgeable about the science behind it all and there’s not much they don't know about the product and also about houses generally. If anyone would like to ask me about the work and our experience with JSJ I’m very happy to discuss this more on the phone or email. Ill leave my details with Susan. best regards Mhairi and Jim Gibson

Really this 5 does not reflect the service we had with JSJ insulation, from the quote to the work to the after care, the job was carried out very professionally and clean and tidy. Our expectation were met and more, we used this company for soundproofing our guesthouse bedroom walls.

I have used JSJ twice now, for my metal roofed garage and also my extension. The garage in winter suffered from condensation and the foam treatment cured it instantly. The team are very professional and the clean up job afterwards is amazing as everything gets covered in plastic beforehand. I would recommend the foam over kingspan everyday.
