Spray foam is the future of insulation. It provides numerous advantages, including financial savings, health, building efficiency and a greener environment.
Spray foam almost doubles the strength of your walls while acting like a glue, holding your roof sheathing in place during high winds.
Many homes lost up to 50% of their hot or cold air. Spray foam combats heat loss and air infiltration better than any other standard insulation system. Unlike traditional insulation, it won’t contribute to moisture-related decay and mould.
The advantage of spray foam insulation that immediately grabs most people’s attention is the savings. Although the initial cost is more than traditional insulation, the long-term savings far outweigh the difference. In most cases, the difference in price is made up within the first five years, yet the savings continue for the life of the home. Spray foam results in lower energy bills and since it does not deteriorate, the savings continue indefinitely.
Spray foam insulation appeals to contractors because of the time it saves. One application is all that is required in order to seal and insulate. It does not settle so there is no need to re-apply.
Spray foam reduces airborne particles and fibers, which, in turn, helps to reduce allergies. Spray foam’s unique make-up also gives it superior soundproofing capabilities.
Spray foam can save your home as it is insect resistant.
The installation of spray foam is a job that is best left to the professionals. DIY kits can be purchase but because spray foam can be quite messy, they are not recommended. If you are building a home or considering a renovation, take the time home to investigate insulation options and hire a professional to install it. You will be saving yourself time, money and a lot of potential headaches.
