The Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance presented its national awards of excellence last Thursday. Insulate SB, headquartered in Santa Barbara, emerged a grand prize winner. This rare accomplishment was its first win on a first-time nomination.

Insulate SB was one of only two nationwide winners to capture the crystal sculpture awarded in the category of Specialty Applications.

Nominations were received throughout the previous 12 months from across the country in this annual gala event. Culled from an extensive list to four finalists, Insulate SB’s work on an unusual house shaped like a pile of books, in Santa Barbara, was judged by peers to be the best in the industry. It was built for a publisher.

Nominations are judged independently by a panel of industry experts. Nominations are anonymous to the panel, who vote securely online from their home state.

Insulate SB has been an accredited, spray foam contractor for many years. Meeting professional standards set by the alliance, Insulate SB commits to improving its staff and product through continual education, and accreditation.

As a first-time nominee and national award winner, it is poised to share its expertise with many local residential and commercial insulation projects.

The SPFA is the voice and educational arm of the polyurethane foam industry. SPFA delivers training, industry certification, leadership on energy conservation, the environment, health and safety, building codes and technical advances in the industry.

Members are professional contractors, manufacturers and distributors who strive to educate, regulate and improve the trade.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
