If you are looking to insulate a new building, or upgrade an older one, there are many benefits of spray foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is a great option for making your home more energy efficient by creating a seamless air barrier.
As soon as the mixed compound hits the surface it begins to expand, forcing its way into even the tiniest crevices before hardening. It is used in attics, exterior walls, roof decks, and floor decks.
This seamless air barrier will allow you to maintain a consistent and constant comfort throughout your home regardless of what mother nature throws you.
Cooling and Heating Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
One of the unique abilities of spray foams is getting into small cracks and crevices. Once the foam is applied directly into the cracks, it expands and dries quickly while blocking air and water.
Foam insulation isn’t just a blockade for air and water, but for heat and cold as well.
Depending on where you live, foam insulation can lower your electric & gas bills.
Increases the Sturdiness of Your Walls
Due to its density and hardness, closed cell insulation can actually strengthen the walls.
Every building is built after a code that requires the walls to meet a minimum load bearing standard to hold the building together. One of the benefits of spray foam insulation is that it gets everywhere and it holds everything together as a strong glue.
It Lasts Longer
Fiberglass and Styrofoam insulation aren’t long-term solutions.
Fiberglass sags and bunch, while Styrofoam breaks over the years. These types of insulation need to be replaced over time.
On the other hand, spray foam insulation does not sag or brake over extended periods of time.
Even though the initial investment is larger, spray foam saves you money in long-term.
Good news for those who are concerned with keeping their households Green.
Spray foam reduces energy consumption and protects your building against mold and mildew growth.
