Why Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray Foam Insulation has become the insulation of choice for builders, architects, and homeowners because of the myriad of benefits it provides, all stemming from its ability to provide a seal against air, moisture, and thermal fluctuations, all in one application. Spray foam replaces traditional insulation like fiberglass batts and blown in cellulose, which existed as part of a vented attic system, installed in walls, and used in crawlspaces. These traditional insulations act like loose blankets for a home, and much like blankets, only work when air is not moving over, under, or through the blanket. Spray foam insulation expands to fills cracks and corners of attic roofs, walls, and crawlspace joists, sealing conditioned air in and keeping unconditioned air out. The benefits of this multi-barrier insulation are numerous and include lower energy bills due to less HVAC run time, longer HVAC system life, less dust and air pollutants in the home, equalized room temperatures, cooler and cleaner attics, lower carbon footprint, increased structural strength, and adding sound abatement, increased value of home, lower home insurance, all of which leads to happier homeowners.
