Spray Foam Insulation
Built-in Vapor Barrier and High R-value
Spray Foam Insulation is a unique insulating material that not only provides excellent insulation value yields, but also has an integrated vapor barrier that helps seal multiple substrates together. It can form a continuous air barrier on walls, roofs, around corners, and on many surfaces in and around a home or building. We most often use spray foam insulation to seal penetrations through attics as well as holes or gaps in the exterior shell of many of the houses we work on.
Spray foam is a combination of two liquids that react very quickly and expand on contact to create a solid blanket of foam. It not only insulates, but seals gaps, and some foams can form a barrier against moisture and vapor. By creating a tight barrier around a building, spray foam helps prevent hot and cold air, moisture and vapor from infiltrating a building’s comfortable interior environment. Spray foam insulation is known to resist heat transfer extremely well, and it offers a highly effective solution in reducing unwanted air infiltration through cracks, seams and joints.
We promote the use of spray foam in new homes as well as retrofit projects because of its versatility. It is a multi-purpose product that insulates, seals and acts as an air barrier that we often use to seal gaps and voids in attics or basement sill boxes. It can also be combined with many other insulation materials, like blown-in insulation, to generate an even higher R-value.
Benefits of Spray Foam
Universal Barrier – Spray foam acts as a moisture, weather, and sound barrier.
High R-value – Spray foam insulation has one of the highest R-value returns per inch of any insulating material on the market.
Indoor Comfort – Create a comfortable indoor living environment by preventing heat loss or cold infiltration.
Flexibility – There are many types of spray foam insulation and the product’s versatility affords installation in many unique applications including wood-brick joints and hard to access gaps and voids.
