WHAT IS SPRAY-FOAM?

In the world of insulation, spray foam has been around for more than 30 years. With spray foam insulation, walls, floors and ceiling cavities are sealed against air movement. It covers many areas including joints where doors and windows meet, spaces around electrical outlets and light fixtures, rim joists and so on.

Spray foam is made from a mixture of two materials: isocyanate and polyol resin. When these two materials are mixed together, they expand 30-60 times its natural liquid state after it is sprayed in a place. As it fills cracks and gaps during installation, it never loses its shape and stays the same over time.

SPRAY-FOAM ADVANTAGES

WHY SPRAY-FOAM?

Why would you choose Spray-foam Insulation over traditional Fibreglass or Cellulose Insulation? 

SAVE ON HYDRO

It helps in saving expenses on energy as it is a powerful insulator.

LONG-LASTING

This method of insulation lasts for a long time as spray foam, when installed, stays in place while still providing maximum insulation and protection to your house.

SEALS

Spray foam insulation is very effective in sealing holes where air and water may pass through to get into and weaken a building.

Better R-Value

Spray-foam insulation is known for it’s high R-Value. You can get more R-value per inch than any other traditional styrofoam, fibreglass or cellulose insulation.

TYPES OF SPRAY-FOAM

There are two types of spray foam: open cell and closed cell. The open cell spray foam is light and pliable due to its composition. While the closed cell spray foam is made from denser material and is more resistant to change in temperature or weathering. The area to be insulated will determine what spray foam should be used.

OPEN VS. CLOSED CELL

As the spray foam method of insulation is very effective, it saves money on cooling and heating bills. Spray foam insulation offers protection against air and water infiltration and strengthens the structure of the building it is used on.

Spray foam totally insulates the area to which it is applied on and stays in place after it is installed. Depending on the type of spray foam used, it can also help to insulate sound and increase the resistance of a building to wind uplift.
