SPRAY FOAM INSULATION
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Spray Foam Insulation is quickly becoming the preferred solution for new construction and retrofit projects alike. Designed to effectively fill cracks and crevices, SPF is applied quickly and cures within seconds. It is mold resistant, permanent and provides a “custom fit” insulation solution unique to each structure because it is easily applied to awkward spaces, such as around pipes, crawl spaces, roof peaks, attics and walls.
Even older homes and buildings can benefit from spray foam insulation. With slow-rise SPF installed in external walls and the correct spray foam in the attic, drafty old houses can become more energy efficient by today’s standards. Plus, existing HVAC units and duct work will function in a less demanding “conditioned” environment, potentially extending the life of this expensive equipment.
There are two general types of spray foam insulation: open-cell and closed-cell foam.
