Spray Foam Insulation Residential

The goal of building insulation is to resist heat transfer. It acts as a barrier for keeping outside temperatures out and for keeping inside temperatures in. The result of good insulation is keeping buildings warmer in cold seasons and cooler in warm seasons. Heat transfer can occur in many places in a building so having the proper insulation is extremely important.

In air permeable insulations, such as fiberglass or cellulose, R values are very dynamic. The greater the temperature difference is from outside to inside, the greater the reduction in the actual insulation performance is. Simply put, R values and overall performance of air permeable insulations become lower when they are needed most. Add in a wind factor and these insulations are further greatly compromised.

Spray Foam is a complete insulation, air barrier system that seals ceiling, wall, and floor
cavities against air movement, including spaces around electrical outlets and light fixtures,
at baseboards and where walls meet windows and doors. This means that outside air
(either hot or cold) cannot seep into the building, causing drafts or cold spots. It also means that humid interior air cannot enter the structure and condense.

Spray Foam takes the place of fiberglass, polyethylene vapor barrier, tape, foam and caulking, and eliminates the labor intensive work associated with air-tightness detailing when insulating with conventional insulation products.
