Spray Foam Insulation

Spread the love

Spray foam insulation can be sprayed anywhere – attics, crawl spaces, walls, basements, and pole barns. In general, it’s best suited to new construction because it can be applied during the rough-in stage of construction to fill cracks and crevices in the structure. It also doesn’t shrink, sag or lose its shape like some other types of insulation materials.

It also creates an airtight seal that keeps conditioned air trapped in the house, which can help to save money on your energy bills throughout the year. Your HVAC systems won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable, so they’ll use less electricity – which translates into lower monthly bills.

The amount of spray foam you need will depend on where you live. For example, in places with mild climates, it’s common for home builders to use two inches of spray foam in walls and three inches of foam in roofs. This equates to an R-value of around R-13 and R-19 respectively.

While spray foam is a great way to insulate any home, you must choose the right type. Open-cell spray foam is softer and more flexible because the cells created are left intentionally open, whereas closed cell is harder and more rigid because the cells are completely encapsulated. Closed-cell is the preferred option because it provides better thermal performance, and it’s stronger and more resistant to moisture than open-cell spray foam. It can also improve the structural integrity of your building if used correctly.
