The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Save On Your Energy Costs All Year Long
Lets' face it; cheap insulation is not going to help you in the long run. Yes, you may save a few pennies on the outset. You'll wind up spending more money on energy bills and replacement costs down the road, however, maintaining a poor environment in your home or office. The difference between spray foam and other types of insulation is that foam expands and provides completed coverage while creating a tight seal around the entire building interior.
Moisture Protection Your Home or Business
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.
Spray Foam is Effective at Noise Reduction
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.
