Why Spray Foam?
With the rising cost of energy, and focus on health and environmental issues, architects and builders are recommending insulation materials that add significant performance value to construction projects. Spray foam is at the top of the recommended product list.
The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation Include:
Spray foam is a fully adhered insulation that is spray applied into wall cavities, providing a continuous air and moisture barrier. Spray foam allows efficient use of your HVAC system and helps regulate the temperature fluctuations and humidity in your home. Spray foam effectively seals the building envelope, filling in any cracks and crevices, the common source of air and moisture infiltration as well as temperature variations.
Homes insulated with spray foam are just simply more comfortable because you control the environment within. The seal created by spray foam contributes to an even temperature and dampens noise from outdoors.
Air infiltration and exfiltration within a home contributes to almost 99% of moisture migration. Restricting air movement stops moisture accumulation so that the possibility of mold growth is less likely. Combined with a properly sized HVAC system, spray foam insulation helps control the indoor humidity levels to minimize moisture and condensation. Reducing moisture and controlling humidity can also add years to the life expectancy of a home, plus contribute to a healthier indoor environment. Finally, it also deters pests, making it difficult for them to nest.
Many illnesses like asthma and allergies are often caused by airborne pollutants such as dust, dirt, carbon monoxide and many more. By choosing spray foam insulation, your home will be sealed from a wide range of pollutants in the air. Many customers notice a positive difference in their health after installation.
Spray foam insulation can help support the overall structure of your property. This is dependent on the application and thickness of the spray foam on installation.
Current guidelines recommend up to 10 inches of insulation in your attic . This is usually added to the ground, rather than the roof line, which results in the loss of your storage area, due to not being able to refit floor boards after installation. By implementing spray foam insulation to the roof line, you regain the lost 10 inches, thus increasing storage, height and practicality.
