The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Secure Insulation & Green Insulation
Because spray foam insulation expands up to 60 times its liquid mass, it seals difficult to reach areas others cannot. This air-tight insulation ranks among the finest applications on the market.The extraordinary longevity and proven energy efficiency of foam insulation make it an environmentally friendly product.
The U.S. Department of Energy reported that 40 percent of a home’s energy loss is due to air penetration. Spray foam eliminates cracks and crevices, which makes it 50 percent more cost-effective than other types of insulation. Upgrading to spray foam means your money won’t fall through the cracks.
Moisture and Mold
Moisture is the single greatest threat to your property. Water can damage walls and weaken beams. Even worse, it can stimulate dangerous mold growth. Mold needs moisture, warmth and a food source to spread. Fortunately, foam insulation stops it in two ways. First, foam insulation is not a food source. Second, foam insulation creates an air-tight barrier against water seepage.
Steel Beam Insulation
Exposure to the elements can compromise metals. Foam insulation protects them from weakening and spiking temperatures that cause expansion and contraction. Spray foam insulation exceeds state and national fire code safety regulations. It secures cracks, gaps and can maintain the structural integrity of steel and concrete in the event of a blaze.
