Spray foam insulation can be applied to many areas of your home, including attics, crawl spaces and rim joists. It is often installed in new construction after windows, doors and roof systems are in place, after framing and electrical inspections have been completed and before drywall is hung. It also can be added to existing homes to reduce energy costs.

The R-value of spray foam is much higher than traditional batt insulation, meaning it has the ability to prevent heat transfer and significantly lower your heating and cooling expenses. It is also extremely cost effective for existing structures, allowing you to reduce your utility costs by up to 50% right away!

Spray Foam Insulation: Understanding the Installation Process

There are two types of spray foam insulation; open-cell and closed-cell. Open-cell spray foam is formed when two liquids combine during a chemical reaction and it can be installed in walls, ceilings, roofs, and basements. It is more affordable than closed-cell spray foam, however, it can absorb moisture and vapor and may require the addition of a vapor barrier.

Closed-cell spray foam is more expensive than open-cell insulation, but it provides a more durable and longer-lasting seal that will last for years to come. This type of spray insulation is perfect for homes and buildings in hurricane-prone regions as it creates a powerful barrier that restricts air movement and helps to protect the building against wind uplift. It also is a great choice for new construction and retrofits, and will not compress or sag over time.
