Reasons People Are Using Spray Foam Insulation

The Spray Foam Advantage

Spray foam insulation takes building envelope performance to the extreme in many ways:


  • Its high R-Value per inch provides outstanding thermal performance, so it minimizes hot and cold spots that can affect the efficiency and comfort of your home. Meaning it keeps heat in your home in the winter reducing energy costs by up to 50% per year, and keeps heat out in summer providing a cool comfortable atmosphere.
  • Its rigidity provides added structural integrity to wherever you decide to spray.
  • It acts as a secondary vapor barrier to help reduce the risk of moisture intrusion in the wall cavities.
  • Air leakage plays a major part in energy loss in a home. Spray foam reduces this making it the most energy-efficient insulation on the market today!
  • It reduces the risk of unhealthy mold, outdoor allergens, pollutants, and provides no food source for unwanted pests.
  • Spray foam provides an airtight seal by filling in all holes and cracks where it is sprayed. This makes it ideal for exterior walls or attics.
  • The lifespan of spray foam is indefinite meaning it will outlive your home and does not sag or settle over time.
