Highest effective R-Value, and reduces energy consumption up to 50%
Provides a seamless air barrier that eliminates air transfer convective heat loss through celings and walls
Seals all nooks and crannies
Dramatically improves air quality
Restricts moisture transmission and virtually eliminates moisture and mold problems within wall cavaties
Adds structural strength and stability (Closed Cell Foam)
Reduces sound transmission
Does not shrink or settle
* * * According to a 2005 National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) study, energy savings of up to 62% can be realized by undertaking specific air-leakage prevention measures in homes and buildings (from Bayer Material Science Foam book, Education about Spray Foam).
Spray Foam Insulation is different from Spray Foam roofing. A foam roof is sprayed to the exterior of the structure, and is a complete roofing/waterproofing systems. Spray Foam insulation is fluid applied (sprayed) in your walls and attic. Roofing foam has a much higher density than insulation foam. Please check our "Products and Services" page to see the difference.
If you spray the underside of a roof deck with Spray Foam Insulation, should you vent the attic?
No, the application of Spray Foam Insulation to the underside of the roof deck minimizes the potential for condensation. The Spray Foam Insulation develops a thermal and moisture gradient that avoids the development of dew point conditions in the attic. Because of this, moisture won't condense or accumulate, and therefore does not need to be vented to the exterior.
How does Spray Foam reduce energy usage in residential occupancies and buildings?
SPF provides a continuous air barrier
SPF prevents moisture infiltration through air leakage
SPF minimizes dew point problems and condensation
SPF avoids thermal bridging
SPF resists heat movement in all directions
SPF provides reliable performance under varying conditions
What is an R-Value?
R-Value is a measure of thermal resistance used in the building and construction industry.
