Beyond Foam Insulation – In 2000, Curt Janzen (co-owner) of Beyond Foam Insulation was working for a home builder doing site superintendent duties. One of the upgrades that were done on every home was a rim joist* insulation package. To insulate the rim joist we would first install a fiberglass batt. From there we would custom cut SM Styrofoam to fit every pocket. When this was complete, he would then acoustical seal each Styrofoam panel to the wood that was around it to ensure there was no air leakage. As you can imagine, this was a very tedious and time-consuming process for such a small area of the home. It didn’t take long for Curt to wonder if there was a better way or material to use to insulate these tough areas.
A while later Curt moved to Calgary to start a contracting business. In his projects, he often used spray foam insulation. There were 2 problems with this when he started. One, there were very few contractors that were doing this work and even fewer that had any type of experience. Secondly, they wanted a minimum of $1500 just for showing up at the job site. So, these factors impelled Curt to ask his brother-in-law, Kevin Boschee, if he wanted to team up and start Beyond Foam Insulation Ltd.
