Spraying thanks: Company offers blessing of insulation

Published 1:00 pm Wednesday, November 15, 2023

A local company has partnered with industry manufacturers to offer free insulation to an organization making a positive impact.

Grace Foam Solutions in Wesson is a new company, having started just a couple of months ago. Owner Ricky Breazeale has been in the construction industry for 12 years, and had been looking for an opportunity to do his “own thing.” So he formed Grace Foam Solutions, a spray foam insulation company that works with installation and distribution of the product.

As a Christian and pastor, Breazeale wanted to do more than just make a living with his business.

“God was just laying it on my heart — how can we give back to the community?” he said. “This business exists as a blessing to us, but also as a blessing to others. So many people, we think, could benefit from this.”

So with the help of his wife Jessica, a public relations professional, he began looking for a worthy recipient.

“We’re looking for any organization making a difference in peoples’ lives,” he said.

Groups have until Saturday, Dec. 9, to submit their entry for the giveaway.
“They just need to submit a few photos of the building and a three-paragraph write-up about what they’re doing, and how that building will benefit the community,” Breazeale said. “Ideally, it’ll be new construction metal frame or wood frame, or an existing building that has been gutted — no sheetrock or old insulation present.”

The winner will be chosen by Dec. 12, and the building must be reading to be sprayed by Jan. 15. Entries should be emailed to gracefoamsolutions@gmail.com.

“We have contractors and suppliers nationwide who will be coming into the area to do this project,” said Breazeale. “We want to use this as a ministry opportunity for someone here, and within our industry, as well.”

Any group in Southwest Mississippi and into Louisiana as far down as Kentwood is eligible, he said. Only one winner will be selected. The value of the giveaway is potentially thousands of dollars.

“This is 100 percent to give back to our community to someone who deserves it,” said Breazeale. “We just want to be a blessing to others. That’s it in a nutshell.”
