There is no better home or building insulating material that can seal it from air and moisture intrusion, save on costly utility bills, strengthen your home or building, and protect your family’s health from dangerous mold, airborne pollutants, and allergens than Spray Foam insulation.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
- Stops air and moisture infiltration
- Makes your home more comfortable
- Saves on energy costs
- Adds strength to the building structure
- It is permanent and will not sag
- Keeps dust and pollen out
- Reduces capacity requirements, maintenance and wear of HVAC equipment.
Spray Foam Insulation Redefines Traditonal Construction Methods and Benefits Modern Building Sciences and Energy Efficient Green Building Initiatives
Read all about how spray foam used in the Building Envelope outperforms fiberglass insulation, becomes a superior air barrier, and defies traditional, and perhaps, outdated building practices of attic and crawl space ventilation.
SPF Saves You Money and Pays for Itself
SPF home or building insulation saves on energy costs and lowers utility bills. SPF is used to seal the entire “building envelope” of your home or building to prevent air and moisture infiltration. The US Department of Energy (DOE) studies show that 40% of your home or building’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. This air infiltrates the home or building in the form of drafts through walls sockets, windows and doorways.
Often times no expensive building wrap or additional vapor protection is required during construction when using SPF, saving money yet again.
Monthly energy and utility savings of 30% or greater can be achieved when compared to the alternative roofing and insulation systems. The cost of an SPF roof or insulation system can often be recovered in less than 5 years, simply through energy savings alone.
Prevents Air, Moisture and Gas Infiltration
Studies have shown that as much as 40% of a building’s total energy loss is due to air infiltration. Traditional fiberglass insulation is only stapled, or placed into the wall cavities and does not seal the stud and wall cavities from end to end, or top to bottom. Air infiltration can pass through these gaps, making it far less efficient than SPF. SPF not only adheres to, but forms to the walls and floors to create a tight seal and insulating barrier that stops this air leakage. SPF also boasts the highest R-value per inch than any other commercial material, (upwards of R-7.0, compared with Fiberglass at R-3.5) making your home or building more comfortable and less expensive to heat in the winter, and cool in the summer.
Since SPF acts as an air barrier, it also helps to reduce moisture infiltration, which is a source of dangerous mold and mildew growth in your home or building, and can cause severe health problems to its occupants. So save your family and save money at the same time with SPF insulation systems. Moisture infiltration can also cause structural damage to your home or building.
Enhances Overall Building Stability
Since SPF is seamless and monolithic, foam sprayed into the walls enhances overall building stability and reduces “rack and sheer.” More...
