Spray foam insulation is 40 per cent more effective than traditional forms of insulation, and is the leading insulators in the market today. Spray foam is so efficient that only 3 inches of foam has an R-Value (thermal resistance) of R20 to R22.
Polyurethane Foam is a highly efficient product with excellent air sealing qualities that prevents the flow of air, dust and other pollutants into your home. Spray foam insulation is rigid when dry and lasts virtually forever without the potential convection, humidity and settling/matting of traditional forms of insulation.
As the most environmentally friendly and cost effective type of insulation, spray foam has a higher price point than conventional insulation; however, spray foam won’t have doesn’t settled, matted or become full of dust and molds in 10 or 20 years, and it will pay for itself in 5. It’s also devoid of food value, preventing the growth of bacteria and mold over time.
Spray foam insulation reduces the need for temperature control as it keeps your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while significantly reducing your monthly energy bill.
Spray-applied as liquid, ½ lb. foam expands within seconds to 120 times its liquid volume making it ideal for use as a high-performance insulating air barrier.
With similar application process to that of ½ lb. foam, 2lb foam offers the highest R value per inch of all spray foam systems.
