THE BENEFITS OF SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Spray Foam insulation is environmentally friendly, contains no formaldehyde or ozone depleting chemicals, saves energy  and reduces the use of fossil fuels, thereby reducing global warming gases. It also assists in providing good indoor air quality, requires less energy to produce than the leading insulation, and reduces the amount of energy required to transport and install it.  Spray Foam insulation is durable, maintains physical properties over time, contributes little to the waste stream, and in a single product (depending on the formula and project) can take the place of three-four other products, including insulation, air barriers, sealants, vapour retarders, and weather barriers.

  • Has high R-value per inch (open-cell 3.7 per inch and closed-cell 6.5 per inch)
  • Eliminates air infiltration
  • Helps control moisture and condensation
  • Reduces convective currents in walls and attics
  • Eliminates wind washing
  • Effective at low and high temperatures
  • Provides the correct environment so that the ventilation system performs more efficiently

Closed cell Spray Foam insulation adds structural strength and glues a building together, thereby making it more resistant to racking events, such as hurricanes and high winds. Spray Foam insulation reduces noise from outside by air sealing the building.

Closed-cell Spray Foam insulation can provide an added barrier against water intrusion.
