Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam is an effective Quality Insulation that fills gaps and nooks and crannies that are difficult to reach with other types of insulation. It also creates an air seal that can stop drafts and help to lower your energy bills.

This spray-on insulation starts out as a liquid, then expands into a dense foam that’s packed with tiny air bubbles. The bubbles make it hard for heat energy to pass through the walls, floors and ceilings of your home. It can be used in new construction, rim joists and attics, as well as for remodeling projects in existing homes and pole barns.

Before using spray foam, you’ll need to prep the area and take precautions to ensure your safety. A professional spray foam contractor will put on a suit and mask to protect themselves from the chemicals. They will move any furniture or other items out of the way, cover flooring and windows, then run a hose to their spray gun to facilitate the chemical reaction that creates the foam.

Polyurethane spray foam chemistry primarily consists of 2 ingredients: isocyanate and polyol resin. When the two chemicals are mixed and sprayed, they combine to create a foam that’s 30 to 60 times its liquid volume. As a result, spray foam is quite heavy and must be handled with care.

Spray foam is available in both open and closed cell varieties. Open cell spray foam has a more sponge-like structure, while closed cell spray foam is denser.
