There is no better home insulating material that can seal your home from air and moisture intrusion, save on costly bills and protect your family’s health from dangerous mold, airborne pollutants, and allergens than Spray Foam insulation.Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
- Stops air and moisture infiltration
- Makes your home more comfortable
- Saves on energy costs
- Adds strength to the building structure
- It is permanent and will not sag
- Keeps dust and pollen out
- Reduces capacity requirements, maintenance and
wear of HVAC equipment
Read all about how spray foam used in the Building Envelope outperforms fiberglass insulation, becomes a superior air barrier, and defies traditional, and perhaps, outdated building practices of attic and crawl space ventilation.
Sprayed polyurethane foam has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 per 1 inch thickness (depending on the particular formulation and application, higher values have been achieved), enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulation material. Spray Foam Insulation systems are frequently used to insulate and protect a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
Prevents Air, Moisture and Gas Infiltration
Studies have shown that as much as 40% of a building’s total energy loss is due to air infiltration. Traditional fiberglass insulation is only stapled, or placed into the wall cavities and does not seal the stud and wall cavities from end to end, or top to bottom. Air infiltration can pass through these gaps, making it far less efficient than Spray Foam Insulation. Spray Foam Insulation not only adheres to, but forms to the walls and floors to create a tight seal and insulating barrier that stops this air leakage. Spray Foam Insulation also boasts the highest R-value per inch than any other commercial material, (upwards of R-7.0, compared with Fiberglass at R-3.5) making your home more comfortable and less expensive to heat in the winter, and cool in the summer.
Since Spray Foam Insulation acts as an air barrier, it also helps to reduce moisture infiltration, which is a source of dangerous mold and mildew growth in the home, and can cause severe health problems to its occupants. So save your family and save money at the same time with Spray Foam Insulation home insulation systems. Moisture infiltration can also cause structural damage to your home or building.
Prevents Moisture and Mold
Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture. Spray Foam Insulation insulation is the key.
Enhances Overall Building Stability
Since Spray Foam Insulation is seamless and monolithic, foam sprayed into the walls enhances overall building stability and reduces “rack and sheer.”
Reduces Sound Travel and Noise
Spray Foam also reduces airborne sound making the home acoustically tighter and more private from room to room.
