About Us

Hello! My name is Jesse Coates, and I am the owner, foreman, and primary installer of Enviro-FOAM.Enviro-FOAM was established in 2007 by my previous employer. In 2011, I purchased the business’ equipment and goodwill of the “Enviro-FOAM” brand, re-incorporated under Northern Insulation LLC, and began “doing business as” Enviro-FOAM. In the years since, I have spent almost every day actively building upon the positive reputation of the company name, through an almost obsessive-compulsive focus on quality and rock-solid reliability. My standards are so high that Ifind it difficult to relinquish the helm to another foam installer. If and when I do, they will be worthy. Until then, may you realize that having the owner on every foam insulation job brings a lot of value. Actually, read that once more—it’s that important!

Until I permanently hang up the Tyvek suit, we will remain small and busy. We do what we say, when we say, by the time we estimate, within the price we quote, and in a manner that will likely exceed your expectations. …unless you’ve already heard of us, in which case, you should already expect the best.If you haven’t heard of us, ask around; our name will likely come up. If not, ask us for some references.

If I write one unbiased sentence, it is this… Get references for any contractor you choose, ESPECIALLY foam insulation contractors. We are not created equal. Differences lie in the people, the foam material used, and even the equipment used to process the material. That’s not to imply that we are the only insulation contractors worth hiring. Just do your due diligence and ask questions.

Our equipment…

  • Two spray foam insulation rigs

-Our flagship rig was new in 2016 custom designed by the owner, Jesse Coates, and commissioned to be built by local contractor, Wade Johnson. It has too many features to list, but among the most prominent include… 32’ gooseneck trailer, 40 kw diesel genset, Graco H-30 Reactor 2 proportioner, 210 ft of heated hose,Ingersoll Rand air compressor and refrigerated air dryer,eight 55-gallon drum carrying capacity, Espar Airtronic diesel-fueled furnace which always keeps the inside temperature at 74 degrees Fahrenheit.
