Lapolla supplies foam for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” in Ottawa, KS, USA, to reduce effects of post traumatic stress

[image_0]The Emmy award winning reality programme "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” now in its ninth season, this week features the Hill family home and is scheduled to air on Friday, 4 November 2011 at 8/7c on ABC. The Hill home was a different type of spray foam job; the main focus was to reduce sound transmission into the home along with overall energy savings. Staff Sgt. Allen Hill suffers from post traumatic stress disorder and has a medical condition that affects him with loud sounds. Lapolla was approached by the series Director and then called on one of its certified contractors to spray their Airtight open cell foam for maximum sound reducing properties along with high R-value of 3.9 per inch. Mike Tichenor from Alternative Energy Systems along with Troy Herring, Lapolla Insulation Products Manager and Jeff Smith, Lapolla Sales Manager started the job at 3:00 am and stayed on the project working with all contractors and production crew to finish the job by 2:00 am the next day. It was the hottest day in over 10 years over 110 °F! With the hard work and dedication from Alternative Energy Systems the job was completed within the 24 hours and satisfied the local code officials. "Lapolla AirTight open cell foam was the best choice for this "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” that was calling for the very best sound deadening and insulation qualities on the market. AirTight open cell foam goes on as a liquid under high pressure sealing every crack and crevice, expanding to 150 times its original volume. This reduces sound transfer through the roof and walls tremendously as well as offering energy savings for the family,” explained Herring.
