Think Foam!

Spray Foam, Spray Insulation, Expanding Foam and Foam sealant are common terms for insulation, which is sprayed into place unlike traditional sheets or rolls of insulation, which must be cut and fixed into place.  It is produced from two liquid components that, when combined and sprayed, produce an expanding foam froth. This expanding foam froth then hardens within 3-5 minutes to form a rigid foam with excellent insulating properties.

What are the benefits of spray foam over other types of insulation?  Well… here’s a few to start with!

  •     Foam has a higher R-Value per inch thickness.  In fact, closed cell foam has almost twice the R-Value of fiberglass or cellulose.
  •     Buildings insulated with spray foam are more comfortable and use less energy.
  •     Foam fills and seals gaps and cracks to provide an air seal.  Fiberglass does little more than filter the air as it passes through.
  •     Closed cell foam provides a better moisture seal than all other insulation.
  •     Foam provides better sound deadening than fiberglass.
  •     Foam does not attract or provide a nesting area for pest like other insulation materials.
  •     Spray foam seals small gaps to keep out insects and other small critters.
  •     Spray foam expands to easily fill in around other objects and completely fills oddly shaped spaces.
  •     Closed cell foam increases the structural strength of a wall

When rising cost of energy demands insulation products that exceed traditional methods, and homeowners demand better building products for their homes, spray foam insulation is the economical energy efficient answer.
