The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Comprehensive Insulation: Spray foam insulation expands up to 60 times its liquid mass as it is applied. That allows it form air-tight seals in even difficult to reach areas. That’s one reason it’s among the highest-ranking applications on the market.
Energy Cost Savings: The U.S. Department of Energy reports that 40 percent of a building’s energy is lost because of air penetration. Buildings using spray foam insulation perform 50 percent better than those with other types. By eliminating wasteful air gaps, your dollars will be well spent. Stop your energy dollars from falling through the cracks with spray foam insulation.
Moisture and Mold Protection
Moisture presents the greatest threat to buildings. It can damage walls, structural beams and stimulate the growth of hazardous molds. Foam insulation provides excellent protection against mold for two reasons. First, mold requires moisture, warmth and a food source. It cannot thrive on foam insulation. Second, foam insulation forms a tight barrier against moisture penetration.

Because spray foam insulation is made from inert polymers, it lasts for an indefinite length of time. Rolled insulation tends to withers and sag as it ages. Foam insulation remains intact, firm and provides property owners with continued energy savings for decades.
Foam insulation lowers energy usage and lasts indefinitely. That makes its use a definite plus-gain with respects to the sustaining the environment.
