The Advantages of Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is a popular choice in the Rocky Mountain region. It offers many advantages over other types of insulation such as fiberglass or cellulose insulation.

What is Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray foam insulation is created by the chemical reaction of two main components, polyurethane and isocyanate. The combination of the materials creates a foam that expands and hardens to fill small gaps and holes.

What are the Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation?

1. Excellent Insulator

Because spray foam expands, it can tightly seal the nooks and crannies that other insulation materials cannot. With an R-value of R-6, it offers the highest ranking available.

2. Superior Energy Savings

Spray foam insulation provides energy savings of 50% or more on average. Other insulation materials will typically provide a 30% increase in energy savings.

3. Effective Moisture Barrier

Spray foam is water and moisture resistant, creating a highly effective moisture barrier where traditional moisture barriers are less effective.

4. Deters Mold

Unlike cellulose (wood fiber) based insulation, spray foam is a closed-cell polymer that does not provide a favorable environment for mold and mildew to grow.

5. Long Life-Span

The inert qualities of spray foam insulation give it an outstanding longevity and long-term insulating performance.
