Customer Testimonies

"Thank you Perkins Inc. for what your company offers a superb, hi-quality service that saves DFW homeowners money, energy and reduces our impact on the environment as well! Perkins Inc. used hi-tech equipment to rate my home for energy loss and air infiltration problems. They repaired every issue they could find until my house had an acceptable rating."

Will Raymond

"The service provided by Perkins Inc. far exceeded my expectations. They were professional, informative and highly skilled. They gave me excellent advice and rescued me from making an uninformed decision. I'm so thankful I called them rather than an insulation company who would have come in to simply spray insulation. I saved so much more money than I would have if I had not contacted Perkins. I will call them again when I need more services. Thanks guys!"

"Perkins Inc. has made drastic improvements to my household, saving me money and making my home much more eco-friendly. The attic insulation job they preformed on my home combined with the home weatherization and duct sealing made my home much warmer in the winter and much cooler in the summer. Their services are top notch and any home owner/renter should take advantage of what Perkins Inc. can do for your home!"

Dallas Professional Spray On Radiant Barrier Contractor

Home Spray On Radiant Barrier

Spray On Radiant Barrier

is actually considered a Interior Radiation Control Coating or IRCC. Spray radiant barrier is not actually a radiant barrier but more of a radiant coating. Spray radiant barrier is a paint mixed with metal flecking that provides the reflective property required to reflect the heat away from your attic and is sprayed onto the underside of the roof deck. The products goal is to reduce the loss of heat in the winter through the roof but most of all keeps heat out of your attic in the summer.

Perkins Inc. installs Henry LiquidFoil™ Attic Barrier. Henry LiquidFoil™ Attic Barrier is a radiant heat control coating that keeps heat out of a building during the summer and in during the winter. By keeping up to 84% of radiant heat from entering or escaping a building, LiquidFoil™ Attic Barrier can cut energy consumption and costs significantly. And it's as easy to apply as paint and dries quickly to a shiny, metallic finish.

Why Install Henry LiquidFoil Attic Spray Radiant Barrier

  • Reflects 84% radiant heat
  • 0.16 e-rating – one of the industry's lowest!
  • Makes existing insulation more efficient
  • Great for high pitch roofs
  • Produces even greater energy savings when applied in conjunction with attic floor insulation
  • Requires no mixing of Part A and Part B
  • Water-based product creates easy clean up and eliminates messes
  • Meets California Prop 65 requirements

How spray radiant barrier paint works

All materials give off, or emit, energy by thermal radiation as a result of their temperature. The amount of energy emitted depends on the surface temperature and a property called the "emissivity" (also called the "emittance"). The emissivity is a number between zero (0) and one (1). The higher the emissivity, the greater the emitted radiation.

Building products, such as wood, brick, painted surfaces and plasterboard exhibit high emissivities (0.7-0.95). When heated above the temperature of adjacent surfaces, they radiate most of their heat energy to cooler surfaces. A good spray radiant barrier works by lowering the roof deck and roof rafters surface emittance to 0.24 or lower, lessening their ability to hold and radiate heat as well as reducing the amount of radiation incident on the insulation. Since the amount of radiation striking the top of the insulation is less than it would have been without a radiant spay, the insulation surface temperature is lower and the heat flow through the insulation is reduced.

the "R" value of a radiant barrier

Radiant barriers do not "absorb" heat like mass insulation (fiberglass, cellulose, foam, etc). Instead, radiant barriers with their highly reflective surfaces reflect 95% of the radiant heat that hit their surfaces and therefore have no R-value rating.

Installing a Henry LiquidFoil spray radiant barrier between the heat source (sun) and an existing R-value rated insulation will improve the effectiveness of the R-value rated insulation. Why? Because only 16% of the radiant heat is now hitting the R-value rated mass insulation thereby extending the amount of time it has to absorb heat before becoming saturated and passing the heat into your living spaces.
