spray foam insulation  Spraytech Insulators

Spray foam insulation is a premium product that provides many benefits over other types of insulation. It seals air leaks and is a great choice for homes where temperature regulation and energy efficiency are important. It stops air from escaping your home and also prevents moisture from moving through the walls. This saves money in the long run on dehumidifier bills and avoids expensive water damage repair.

It can be installed in wall cavities, attic rim joists, crawl spaces, basement rim joists, knee walls and bonus rooms. It can also be sprayed onto the underside of roof trusses and around plumbing or electrical wiring. The spray is applied with a gun or foam applicator and is usually sprayed during the rough-in stage of construction.

Spray Foam Insulation: Eco-Friendly Solutions for a Greener Home

The most popular type of spray foam is closed-cell. It offers a higher R-value than an open cell and creates an air and vapor barrier in one, so homeowners don’t have to apply a separate vapor barrier once the foam dries. It’s also a little more durable than other spray insulation and doesn’t lose its R-value over time.

Open-cell is a slightly cheaper option and it offers a lower R-value than closed-cell, but it’s still better than fiberglass batts per board foot. It’s also a bit more flexible and doesn’t shrink after it’s sprayed, so you don’t have to worry about gaps.

There’s been a lot of concern over the global warming potential of the blowing agents used in spray foam, but it has improved in recent years as manufacturers are making more “green” advancements. Most brands of spray foam now use blowing agents with a low GWP.
