Spray polyurethane foam has superior insulating properties to most other materials. Its R-value per inch is greater than fiberglass, cellulose, or batt insulation, meaning it forms a more effective air and vapor barrier. Further, SPF ensures that your home or building remains energy-efficient by preventing conduction, convection, and radiation of heat.
Installing spray foam insulation in your home or commercial building is safe – it doesn’t release any harmful particles into the air. What’s more, spray foam insulation doesn’t off-gas, and you don’t have to worry about indoor air contamination in your home.
SPF is a near-perfect insulation material: it performs better and offers more value than other insulation materials. With a greater R-value per inch than other materials, you will need less spray foam to achieve the recommended R-38 for your home.
Like any other insulation material, spray foam is prone to damage by water, fire, or insect infestation. In ideal circumstances, however, SPF outlasts most insulation materials, making it a great investment for your home.
In addition to preventing air infiltration and moisture intrusion in your home, closed cell spray foam adds to the structural strength of the walls when installed between wall studs. Open cell foam insulation can also make your home a quieter space when installed in wall cavities.
