The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
The R-value is a measurement of how much water or air is allowed to pass through insulation. Fiberglass and cellulose insulation have an R-value range of 2.2 - 3.0. It's usually on the bottom end of the scale. At the top of the scale is spray foam insulation with an R-value that top out at around 8.0. Higher value equals better insulation.
How long does the insulation last? The more durable the insulation, the greater your return on the investment. Of all products, spray foam lasts the longest. In many cases, it can outlive the building in which it's installed.
If you're not careful, labor costs can eat up budget causing you to have to settle for a lesser produce. Not so with spray foam. It's sprayed out as hot foam, forms an adhesive bond with the surface, expands, and then hardens to form an even shield around the building. It's quick, easy, and requires a smaller crew and less equipment. You save on costly labor.
