The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Air-Tight Insulation And Energy Savings
Spray foam insulation expands up to 60 times its liquid mass when applied and thoroughly seals difficult to reach areas. This air-tight capability ranks among the top applications on the market today.According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 40 percent of a home’s energy loss is caused by air penetration. Spray foam shores up cracks and crevices and makes a structure 50 percent more cost-effective. By upgrading to spray foam, your money will stop falling through the cracks.
Moisture and Mold Threats
Believe it or not, moisture poses the single greatest threat to your building. Water has the ability to damage walls and weaken beams. It can also stimulate dangerous mold growth. Mold requires moisture, warmth and a food source to flourish. Foam insulation stops mold in two ways. First, foam insulation is not a food source. Second, foam insulation creates an air-tight barrier against moisture penetration.
Existing Home Insulation And Truck Insulation
Most forms of insulation lose efficiency as they age. That means you lose energy efficiency and increase the danger of water penetration with each passing year. Upgrading to foam insulation will help you save money and protect your investment indefinitely.Spiking temperatures can damage goods being transported in a trailer. By applying foam insulation to a truck’s interior you’ll be protecting them and increase the value of your trucking services.
Spray Fireproofing / Steel Beam Insulation
Metals are often compromised by exposure to the changing seasons and weather. Fortunately, foam insulation protects them from weakening. Spray foam insulation meets or exceeds all state and national fire code regulations. It secures cracks, gaps and can help maintain the structural integrity of steel and concrete in the event of a fire. Foam insulation outpaces other forms in terms of safety.
