The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
What is Spray Foam Insulation?
The reason spray foam is the best option for you is because of its protective features. Spray foam is a two-part mixture of isocyanate and polynol resin. During the implementation process, the mixture is blended to form polyurethane which expands upon contact with almost any type of surface. The expansion helps the foam to reach into every wall cavity and fill it completely up.
Protect Home or Business from Moisture
Moisture is the number one cause of home deterioration in the framework and along the walls. Although most insulation can keep water from dripping through the attic, it doesn't stop humidity and condensation. In fact, when fiberglass gets wet it stops being effective at keeping air from coming through.
Control The Atmosphere
This is why spray foam is a smarter option. After foam expands it hardens and forms a rock-like barrier around the house. This barrier is impervious to any type of moisture including condensation and humidity. It offers a protective shield that blocks all outside weather. It also acts as a thermal barrier throughout the year. Regardless of what is going on outside, you'll have an easier time controlling the atmosphere inside the building. It protects any structure regardless of how large or small.
Are you building a room that needs a little extra quiet such as nursery or a music studio? By using closed-cell spray foam you instantly notice a drastic reduction in the noise levels by up to 70 decibels. Closed-cell spray foam is slightly spongier than open cell. This allows it to absorb sound vibrations. So instead of frequencies bouncing off the walls or getting through, they'll simply disappear. Your room will be much quieter.
