Spray Foam Insulation

spray foam insulation is a polyurethane plastic that can be sprayed into open surfaces in a paint-like form. It expands to fill cracks and crevices, providing a tight seal that significantly reduces air leakage in new or existing homes. It also saves energy costs, strengthens buildings, and protects against harmful mold and soil gases such as radon.

The most common types of spray foam include open cell and closed cell. Both provide high R-Value insulation, sound attenuation, and moisture resistance. The main difference between the two is that open cell spray foam expands more rapidly than closed cell spray foam, which means it fills gaps and nooks and crannies more effectively.

Closed-cell spray foam is usually made of a chemical blend called polyurethane, and it has a high level of durability and energy efficiency. It can also resist vapor and air infiltration, making it a great choice for homes with concrete block walls or high humidity levels. The foam is manufactured in liquid form, and it is mixed with a blowing agent to create a thick and durable substance that can expand and fill voids.

A professional spray foam insulation contractor uses a specialized “rig” to mix and spray the material. The rig contains an inert gas to prevent the foam from mixing and expanding too quickly, and it is also equipped with sensors to monitor temperature and pressure. The crew member inside the rig controls all of these factors to ensure that the foam is mixed correctly and that it is the right temperature before it is sprayed into the attic, crawl space, or rim joist in an existing home or new construction.
