In this eco friendly and environmentally conscious time, we know that the consumer will lean toward this product compared to the conventional types of insulation. The price difference between spray foaming and conventional insulation has a higher initial cost around, but the environmental time and the positive effects that spray foaming has, which includes, unwanted air infiltration through cracks, seams, joints, and increases building strength, and as a result the building has less heat loss, which will directly relate to savings on your monthly utilities.
What is spray foam?
The difference between spray foam insulation and conventional insulation (ex fiberglass) is that spray foam has a the highest R-Value between all of the insulation, it acts as a vapor barrier, is a highly effective solution in reducing unwanted air, air infiltration through cracks, seams, and joints. There are called micro-drafts and are responsible for most leakage in a home.
Why choose spray foam?
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is made by mixing and reacting chemicals to create a foam. The mixing and reacting materials react very quickly, expanding on contact to create foam that insulates, air seals and provides a moisture barrier. SPF 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. Spray foam insulation is the insulation with the best R-VALUE in all of the insulations. The R-Value of spray foam insulation is R6 per inch.
