AIR TIGHTNESS SOLVED
Seal your entire building, all-at-once
AeroBarrier is an automated process for plugging all of the air leaks in your building. Using a high-powered fan, we blow a 40 mph wind into the building. As the wind blows out of the cracks, we fog the interior with an airborne sealant, which plugs the holes as it gets forced out.
AIR BARRIER SOLVED
Simple, One Step Air Sealing
Consolidate your air sealing with AeroBarrier, and meet code requirements simply, easily, and consistently. We guarantee that you will pass code.
THE CUMBERSOME ALTERNATIVE
The Traditional Approach
Traditional air sealing approaches are a hodge podge effort from multiple trades that requires all sorts of babysitting. Results are never certain, and there’s nothing worse than failing a blower door test just before occupancy.
- Typically in and out within 3 hours
- Meet code requirements the first time
- Airtight in hours instead of days/weeks
Resume Work the Same Day
Resume all work 30 minutes after the sealant process is complete.
- Tight buildings require smaller HVAC systems
- Stop overspending on utilities
- High Performance Without a High Price
Fix Workmanship Error
Aerobarrier fills gaps as small as a human hair and up to 1/2 inch wide. All sorts of gaps left by tradesmen get filled with AeroBarrier–things like drywall or sheathing overcuts, gaps between boards, and unsealed penetrations.

THE AEROBARRIER PROCESS
Step 1: Prep & Setup
We prep the area by covering any openings that won’t be sealed, set up all of our equipment which includes the blower door, emitters, hoses and the AeroBarrier computer station.
Step 2: Pressurize & Apply
Using a blower door, the computerized process pressurizes the space, controls the temperature, humidity, and exact distribution of the AeroBarrier sealant.
Step 3: Real-time Results
With our 100 % guaranteed, you see results in real-time. We have complete control over your desired level of air tightness. You then receive your AeroBarrier Certificate of Completion with the pre and post seal leakage report.
Step 4: Clean Up
Work resumes 30 min. after the sealing is complete. In that 30 min, we remove all tape, coverings and equipment.
