spray foam insulation is a great option for homeowners who want to take control of their energy efficiency and savings. This type of insulation offers a high R-Value that can be up to R-6.5 per inch of thickness (Closed Cell) or R-3.5 per inch of thickness (Open Cell). It also prevents air movement and reduces the transfer of heat between two surfaces. The R-Value of spray foam is higher than other types of insulation, including cellulose and fiberglass.

Moisture Barrier Protection

The closed-cell spray foam is an environmentally responsible choice that is made using low-GWP blowing agents, eliminating the use of HCFCs and HFCs. It’s also compliant with a variety of green building certification programs.

Unlike other insulation materials, spray foam doesn’t lose its shape over time, so it fills the gaps and cracks around light fixtures and electrical outlets and where walls meet doors and windows. It can be applied in new construction, attics, rim joists and crawl spaces as well as existing homes and pole barns.

While spray foam insulation is an effective DIY solution for some, it’s generally recommended to have professional installation done by a licensed contractor. This will ensure consistent coverage and proper expansion. Professionals have access to advanced equipment that can help them achieve this. In addition, they can monitor the temperature of the spray to ensure it doesn’t reach unsafe levels. It’s also a good idea to check with mortgage and insurance companies before applying any insulation products like spray foam to a property.
