The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
What Does Spray Foam Insulation Have to Offer?
Spray foam insulation distinguishes itself in several areas. First, it's the best option for sealing your Floral Park home or business all the way around. It's perfect for insulating walls, ceilings, floors and other areas throughout a building's interior. Second, spray foam is easy to apply. Instead of rolling it out or creating custom sheets, it's simply sprayed into any area large or small. It creates an even layer that acts as a cohesive barrier around the property. Here are some other benefits.
Spray Foam Properties Make it Perfect for Insulation
Spray foam is a culmination of two types of materials: isocyanate and polyol resin. Both of these materials react when combined. When the mixture is combined, it expands and then hardens. During expansion, it moves towards the wall linings and creates an impermeable seal. It's perfect for water and air prevention and also works well as a fire retardant. Business owners who are interested in noise reduction in certain areas of their building will find that it's commonly used for sound proofing.
Dry Foam Offers Ultimate Protection from Fire
Dry Foams properties also make it an ideal fire-resistant insulation. Spray applied fireproofing and steel beam fireproofing are two standard methods of application for foam. Both are designed to develop a wall around steel beams and other critical foundational areas around a building. We also recommend fireproof painting if you want protection from a fire but with a more aesthetically pleasing look.
A Word About New York and New Jersey Building Codes
When you're seeking to add or replace insulation in your Floral Park residential or commercial building, it's important to do some research on state building codes. One of the reasons we offer spray foam is that it consistently meets or exceeds all building code mandates. It has an R-Value (measured insulation levels) of up to 6.5 per square foot.
