Spray Foam

Why is Spray Foam Special?

Air moves in and out of a home through every hole, crack, and crevice. Roughly 33% of air infiltrates through walls, ceiling, and floors. Adding an advanced insulation system is necessary to achieve optimal building performance. Spray Foam is that advanced insulation system.

Spray foam insulation can maximize a homeowners investment by sealing the building envelope to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering a home. Air exchange in and out of a home is a leading cause of escalated energy bills. The mechanical systems that heat and cool buildings are continuously operating; reducing extreme temperature variations saves on the overuse of mechanical systems and leads to lower energy bills.

An environmentally friendly home is a great benefit for builders, occupants, and the environment. Take an active role in helping reduce greenhouse gases, thus slowing the effects of global warming. By properly sealing a home the amount of oil that is needed to produce electricity and the carbon admitted into the environment is greatly reduced. Spray polyurethane foam insulation, because of its efficacy as an air sealer and waterproofing agent, has the potential to be a key component of the durability management strategy for a home. In addition to adding durability, spray foam contributes to projects’ achievement of high levels of energy efficiency because of the high R-value per inch and the performance characteristics of foam.

Applications

Air Barrier

Spray foam insulation seals the home to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering. Air exchange in and out of a home is a leading cause of escalated energy bills.

Attics

Spray foam insulation seals the home to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering. Air exchange in and out of a home is a leading cause of escalated energy bills.

Exterior Subgrade

Closed-cell spray foam is recommended for exterior subgrade foundation thermal and moisture management systems. This application damp proofs the foundation and adds to the energy efficiency of the building.

Perimeter Walls

Wall shear and racking strength can be up to three times stronger when insulating with closed-cell foam, rather than conventional insulation in framed walls.

Interior Insulation

The cell structure and physical properties of spray foam insulation contributes to sound attenuation of sound wall assembly designs. Spray foam insulation systems have been tested for noise reduction and sound transmission control.
