The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Complete Insulation & Reduce Bills
Spray foam insulation naturally expands up to 60 times its liquid mass to seal areas others cannot. That’s why this air-tight product ranks among the finest applications available today. The U.S. Department of Energy says that 40 percent of home energy loss is caused by air penetration. Spray foam closes those cracks and crevices and dramatically improves energy efficiency. Installing spray foam insulation means your money won’t fall through the cracks any longer.
Moisture Can Cause Mold
Moisture may be the single greatest threat to your property. Water penetration harms walls and weakens beams. It also helps mold grow. Mold requires moisture, warmth and a food source to infest a building. Foam insulation hinders it in two ways. First, foam insulation is not a food source. Second, foam insulation creates an air-tight barrier to block moisture.
Crawl Space Insulation & Existing Home Insulation
Crawl spaces may be the most difficult areas to insulate. They also allow energy loss and moisture penetration. Spray foam insulation is designed specifically to expand and secure areas such as crawl spaces. Standard insulations lose their effectiveness over time. As they falter, you spend more energy dollars and risk being exposed to moisture. By upgrading to foam insulation, you can lower energy bills and properly protect your home.
Fireproofing / Steel Beam Insulation
Metals are strong, but the elements can wear them down. Foam insulation helps protect them from changing temperatures that cause expansion and contraction. Spray foam insulation also exceeds state and national fire codes. It’s an excellent way to help maintain the structural integrity of steel and concrete in the event of a fire. As a safety measure, foam insulation leads the pack.
