Rising energy costs and increased discomfort associated with allergies, asthma, mold and noise pollution have created a demand for products that exceed traditional insulation performance. Spray foam is capable of sealing your home from air and moisture intrusion, reducing costly utility bills, strengthening your home, and protecting your family’s health from dangerous mold.

An ideal insulation system not only provides resistance to heat flow (R-Value) but also controls air movement and limits moisture migration. Spray foam bonds to framing and exterior sheathing and helps to glue a structure together, providing not only energy efficiency by structural integrity as well.

SPF insulation saves on energy costs and lowers utility bills. Spray foam is used to seal the entire “building envelope” of your home to prevent air and moisture infiltration. The US Department of Energy (DOE) studies show that 40% of your home’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. This air infiltrates the home in the form of drafts through walls sockets, windows and doorways.

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. Spray foam 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 also has the highest R-value per inch than any other commercial material, (upwards of R-7.4, 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.

OPEN-CELL

Open-cell spray foam has tiny cells of foam that are not completely closed. These broken cells fill with air, hence occupying all the “open” space inside the material. These open cells make the foam weaker or softer feeling than closed-cell foam. The low density nature of open-cell spray foam allows for tremendous yield while still affording critical air sealing of the home, office space or classroom – resulting in better air quality and an increased comfort for building occupants.

Open-cell foam technology expands 120 times its original volume, sealing all voids, gaps and crevices. Open-cell spray foam insulation is a perfect fit to fill cavities of any shape, providing a continuous, protective air barrier that virtually eliminates air leakage.

Recommended Uses for Open-Cell Foam:

  • Walls
  • Ceilings
  • Floors
  • Vented/Unvented Attics
  • Piping
  • Ducts
  • Tanks

CLOSED-CELL

Closed-cell spray foam differs from its open-cell counterpart in that all of its tiny foam cells are closed and packed tightly together. They are filled with a gas that helps the foam rise and expand to become a greater insulator. These cells can be formulated to obtain many characteristics, the most common being size and density.

Closed-cell foam has one of the highest R-Values, (6.9) per inch, of any insulation, a significantly higher value than found in other common insulations such as fiberglass and cellulose.

Closed-Cell foam limits the migration of moisture and also reduces moisture condensation within the building walls and roof, providing a tight seal that keeps pollens and allergens out. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has estimated that indoor pollution can be up to 5 times worse than outdoor pollution, so combining a good ventilation package with spray foam technology can lead to a healthier home environment.

Recommended Uses for Closed-cell Foam:

  • Walls
  • Floors
  • Concrete Slabs
  • Cold Storage
  • Vented/Unvented Attics
  • Crawl Spaces
  • Ducts
  • Freezers
  • Ceilings
  • Piping
  • Foundations
  • Tanks
  • Coolers
