Air sealing your home with Icynene spray foam insulation creates a protective barrier that dramatically impacts home comfort in ways conventional insulations like fiberglass and cellulose can't. ​Icynene spray foam insulation products are classified as air barriers to help stop air leaks and help save energy, control airborne moisture, enhance durability, and provide comfort.

In February, the High Cotton Homes team traveled to Orlando for the International Builders' Show. These show are important not only to connect with our current vendors, but also to find the new and innovative products hitting the market. We were also especially proud this year to receive Huber's Best of Social Award for the Best Jobsite Mascot!


We had such a cool experience recently filming with Matt Risinger and the Build Show Network team on location at one of our builds. Check out the videos we filmed on our HOW WE BUILD page.

2021 Spirit of the Shoals Awards

We had a wonderful night at the Shoals Chamber of Commerce Spirit of the Shoals Awards Ceremony! This bi-annual event recognizes businesses around the Shoals, and we were incredibly honored to receive the Spotlight Award from the Chamber Board. It is challenging and rewarding to own a small business, and we are thankful for the support we receive from our Chamber.  We love the role we have in helping the Shoals area grow!
