SPRAY FOAM INSULATION BENEFITS

Spray foam insulation is the highest performing insulation system available to the construction industry. The insulation is spray applied as a liquid and expands into polyurethane foam. The expanded foam insulation forms a seamless custom fit for many applications. Benefits of spray foam insulation include financial savings, health, building efficiency and greener environment.

MAXIMUM ENERGY SAVINGS

Spray foam insulation completely eliminates air infiltration by expanding into every hole, crack and crevice. It also has the highest R-Value of around 7 per inch. This performance translates into savings of up to 50% on heating costs compared to using standard insulations. Additionally,tightening the buildings envelope allows for HVAC equipment downsizing.

RESTRICTS MOISTURE TRANSMISSION

With a very low moisture permeation rating, spray foam insulation is the only insulation that can be applied directly to the underside of a cathedral ceiling. This eliminates the requirements to install a vapor retarder and allows for the construction of non-vented roofs.

REDUCES RISK OF MOLD & IMPROVES INDOOR AIR QUALITY

Spray foam insulation seals a buildings envelope so tight that an air exchange system must be installed. This is good, because the only air that can enter the building is clean filtered air. The breeding ground for mold is eliminated because foam insulation seals all outside air and controls moisture transmission. Also, spray foam insulation seals the entryway for insects, rodents and other unwan ted pests.

STRUCTURALLY STRENGTHENS

Because spray foam insulation is dense and rigid it adds tremendous structural strength to a building. The racking load is more than doubled compared to conventional construction. Spray foam insulation does not shrink or settle after application and is perminately glued to the studs, sheeting or whatever else it is applied to.

FLEXIBLE APPLICATION

Spray foam insulation can be applied to interior walls or underneath stair wells to reduce the transmission of sound. Perfect for loud media rooms, bathrooms, laundry rooms or under floors of multi level buildings. Spray foam will fill all possible pathways for sound to travel.

REDUCES SOUND TRANSMISSION

Most commonly spray foam insulation is applied to wood, metal and concrete, but can be applied to many other substrates and to many areas including walls, cathedral ceilings, attics, crawl spaces and roof tops. A very popular application on commercial buildings is to spray the flat roof on the outside. Also high R-Value allows for stud and rafter size reduction to increase living space.
