Tired of dealing with cold drafts during the winter, allergies during the spring, and humid rooms during the summer? Spray foam insulation is the most effective way to totally insulate your home from the outdoor elements.

Spray Foam Insulation can seal any building from air and moisture intrusion, saving you money on costly utility bills, strengthening your home against cold spells, and protecting your family’s health from dangerous mold.

Unfortunately, many traditional insulating materials, such as fiberglass, don’t stop moisture and tend to suffer from mold over time. Spray foam is a long-lasting and versatile material that is flexible enough to fill any gap in your walls and easy enough to apply without intrusive home maintenance.

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

What Is Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is applied as a two-part liquid component that chemically reacts to form a rigid plastic-like material that structurally ties the studs and exterior sheathing, forming a monolithic wall barrier. Spray foam creates an air seal that prevents air from flowing into and out of your home, preventing outdoor pollutants like smog, dust, pollen, and bugs from entering your home.

Spray foam also creates a seamless moisture barrier that inhibits mold and bacteria growth. In turn, this can reduce humidity in your home, as well as the spread of mildew and disease. Lastly, spray foam will significantly increase the R-value of your home while also providing a natural sound barrier.

Spray Foam Insulation Is Green & Eco-Friendly

Spray foam is considered one of the most environmentally-safe insulating materials for the following reasons:
  • Spray foam can reduce energy usage by up to 40%, reducing your carbon footprint
  • Spray foam is made from renewable materials, such as castor, soybean, and vegetable oils
  • Spray foam has an incredibly small carbon footprint
  • Spray foam does not release toxic fumes or chemicals.
  • Spray foam contains zero ozone-depleting chemicals
  • Spray foam lasts longer than most insulating materials
  • Spray foam improves indoor air quality
Spray foam is also affordable and can save you money over the life of your home through reduced energy bills. Click below to get your free quote and begin insulating your home today!

Spray Foam Insulation FAQs

Technically, homeowners and construction workers can apply spray foam insulation on their own, though it’s recommended. For one, to install spray foam in existing homes, the drywall needs to be removed. Injection foam can be used to fill existing spaces without ripping apart the drywall, though it does not hold the same benefits as spray foam. Secondly, professional equipment is typically required to install spray foam as it can be difficult to control, and it can harden on clothes and surrounding materials.
Spray foam insulation lasts indefinitely after it hardens and does not lose its R-value over time.
Spray foam’s R-value differs between closed-cell and open-cell foam. Open-cell foam provides an R-value of approximately 3.5 to 4.0 per inch, while closed-cell spray foam provides 7 to 7.5 per inch.
Closed-cell spray foam is much more rigid and consists of completely encapsulated cells forming a dense structure that completely seals air and moisture out. Open-cell foam is much lighter and less dense, making it ideal for crawl spaces and joists, while closed-cell foam is often times reserved for walls and attics.
When ventilated properly, spray foam fumes do not pose health risks. During the application, fumes are released, but with the proper protective equipment, they are not considered harmful. Upon ventilating the area where the spray foam was applied, re-entry is generally safe within a few hours. After the foam has completely hardened and cured, it will not release any more fumes.
Yes, spray foam insulation complies universally with all local building codes.
