Why should I use spray foam?2023-10-12T19:11:27+00:00

Spray foam insulation creates a new type of building envelope, with the insulation and air barrier on the same plane, changing the way buildings work and offering several key benefits including energy savings, better indoor air quality and improved comfort.

What makes it different than traditional insulation like fiberglass?2023-10-12T19:10:56+00:00

For over 50 years, traditional insulation like fiberglass has been measured by one attribute, R-value. Due to the way R-value is tested, it only measures heat transfer by touch, or conduction. On the other hand, spray foam has an impact on all three forms of heat transfer, conduction, convection and radiation.
Conduction – performance is based on physical R-value
Convection – spray foam provides an air barrier, reducing heat transfer by air movement
Radiation – when installed under a radiant surface, such as a hot roof, the interior surface temperature is significantly lowered, thus lowering the radiant heat load

What is spray foam insulation?2023-10-12T19:09:24+00:00

Spray foam insulation is a micro-cellular plastic made from two components, an isocyanate and a polyol-based, resin blend. When mixed together they are applied as a liquid adhesive and expand in place to create an insulation and air barrier system.
